Since Mr. Montalvo entered the industry, he has been on a course of continuous learning. Every day in sales brings fresh challenges, including interactions with different people, fluctuations in the economy and technological advances affecting operations.
A typical day in sales involves meeting new clients and consumers, establishing, and solidifying relationships and devising strategies to drive sales. Mr. Montalvo passionately believes that a sales career provides someone the opportunity to hone their skills and learn new things, setting them up for future success.
Working in the sales industry provides the opportunity to encounter people from different walks of life and offers tremendous potential to build a strong and diverse network.

At Source Marketing Direct, they promote the importance of networking, and they offer their staff and contractors the opportunity to develop their networking skills and build a network via attendance at industry conferences and seminars.
