I was bored to death in my sales job in California. Looking for opportunities abroad, I never heard about sales abroad. Always about English teaching (boring with no future) engineering and manufacturing (requiring technical education that I didn’t have). What could I do with tons of energy, enthusiasm and experience selling while I was in school? Sales! Selling advertising in local expat rags, recruiting students (sales) for expat schools, marketing for bars and restaurants, selling for English schools.
