Episode 107 – From The Air Force To Sales Gravy with Jessica Stokes

Episode Overview

Gina and Rachel welcome Jessica Stokes to today’s show. An Air Force veteran, a sales leader, trainer, management coach and now co-worker of Gina’s. Listen to Jessica’s amazing career path from joining the military after attending a pizza party to her formative sales years and on to her current role at Sales Gravy. 

Jessica Stokes started her sales career 20 years ago, in an outbound telesales role where she quickly achieved “Million Dollar Club” status & discovered her love of sales. From there she stepped up into several sales leadership roles where she helped develop both new hires and veteran sales professionals.

For the last 10 years, Jessica has worked closely with sales teams to help them excel by delivering high-energy training and management coaching. Her passion for developing & motivating sales professionals is evident by her dedication to her clients.

She reflects on being in a male dominated environment and how it helped her in later professional roles, how setbacks can become opportunities, finding work/life balance, always giving 100% and how she can probably kick your ass.
