As a company who pride themselves on the diverse background of each of their contractors, Source Marketing Direct has recently been highlighting the importance of embracing as many learning opportunities as possible that serve multiple purposes, much like a Swiss Army knife.
Managing Director Hector Montalvo has been explaining why working in the sales and marketing industry provides aspiring entrepreneurs with infinite opportunities to develop multi-purpose skills, adding “Multiple strings to their bows.”
Welcoming individuals from all kinds of walks of life, the firm often speaks about the importance of embracing diversity and believes regardless of their previous roles elsewhere; every new contractor offers something entirely fresh and exciting to Source Marketing Direct. Hector Montalvo explains how individuals from varying backgrounds and with different experiences from various industries bring fresh perspectives to the company’s sales and marketing operations.
The open-minded business owner went on to explain; “More often than not, people are better off when they have benefited from various types of experiences and work environments because they have constantly had to push into areas they are not 100% familiar with.”
The London based collective is keen to encourage individuals looking to utilise their current skill-sets while also developing further versatile skills and worthwhile knowledge of a different industry, to consider a role in sales and marketing. Source Marketing Direct recognises staying in the same position or within the same company for long periods of time isn’t always the right answer for ambitious individuals and for this reason, like to equip their contractors with versatile, long-lasting experience which can benefit them no matter what career path they decide to pursue.
The Managing Director acknowledges how embracing a “Swiss Army knife” approach to professional advancement may not always be easy, and there will be challenges to overcome, but insists becoming a flexible professional, well-versed in all kinds of processes and services is a significant step towards becoming a resilient and successful entrepreneur.
The firm believes any individual who is the ultimate “Swiss Army knife” successfully learns how to commit to developing a taste for diverse work endeavours, how to overcome obstacles with optimism, explore the unknown and embrace challenges.
Based in London, Source Marketing Direct is an outsourced direct sales and marketing agency. The firm has spent the last 12 years in the UK as one of the industry’s market leaders and believes that one of the main reasons for their success is their company culture that inspires motivation and encourages people to achieve their goals to reach their full potential.
