Why did you get into sales?

Have found that many sales professionals did not plan to have a career in sales. Curious, how did you end up in your first sales job? Was there a point where you decided you would go "all in" on this career? 👇👇👇

      I’ll kick it off – I personally ended up in sales because I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I was still in college, and sales was the best paying job I could find where I could work in an office and not do construction or such (I was terrible at working with my hands). I never intended to have a career in sales, but I did well and got promoted from the call center to inside sales, and eventually to sales management.
