If you’ve known me for a while, you probably know that I sold knives in college.
Yep, I was a Cutco sales rep – and I was good at it! My grandmother had purchased Cutco knives in the 1950s, so I didn’t need to be “sold” on the product. I did, however, need to be “sold” on the idea of sales…
Going into strangers’ homes with sharp objects was not my first choice in a summer job, but the moment I read that newspaper ad, my life was changed.
I took the job. I sold the knives. I won the awards. I accepted the promotions. And I met people who forever altered the course of my life.
If I had never picked up that newspaper, I never would have moved to Green Bay. I took over the Green Bay sales territory in 2010 even though I had never considered living in the region. Yet that move kicked off a chain of events that directly leads to what my life looks like in 2020.
I met my husband in Green Bay.
We have family, friends, and a church we love in Green Bay.
My life is here. Green Bay is my home.
And if it weren’t for that moment back in 2007 when I picked up a newspaper and applied for a knife sales job, I am convinced that my life would look completely different.
Isn’t it funny how God places these moments in our lives?
I’d love to hear about a moment that changed the course of your life. Leave me a comment!
