Erin Anderson has always been a competitive person. That competitive spirit led her to join George Mason University’s D1 lacrosse team and it drove her to excel in professional sales. During her student-athlete days, Erin made the Mason record books by having the sixth-highest game time play. After graduation, she thrived at memoryBlue before quickly getting hired out by her client (where she was employee number two). Today, Erin is a top-tier Account Executive at global CRM software powerhouse Salesforce.
On this episode of Tech Sales is for Hustlers, Erin shares how her experience as a D1 athlete helped her in sales, why it’s ok not to know everything when starting a new job, and she breaks down what it was like transitioning from a tiny startup to the vast landscape of a Fortune 500 company.
