One of the best parts of this job is learning new and exciting things every single day. Working with like-minded people who are just as passionate about sharing what we learn is so empowering. The personal connection with our customers is another part that I love. Being able listen to their stories and helping them through their health challenges is a gift.

Recipient: CHFA West 2018

"Over 40 years as a sales professional, I have taken many sales courses, had fantastic mentors and it is well worth mentioning a great book called Raving Fans by Harvey Mackay. A satisfied or happy customer just isn’t enough. Strive for Raving Fans! In the last two years, I have enjoyed building partnerships and friends from coast to coast while representing Canadian Organic Spice & Herb Co. I have received many top sales awards throughout my sales career. This award is more special because it’s not based on a sales goal. Raving Fans? It can happen! Listen to your customers, never oversell or you will under-deliver!" — Bob
