Episode 101 – How A Former Olympic Qualifier Bet On Himself
Welcome back! On this episode we meet Bryce Saddoris, former Marine and Olympic qualifier. Bryce launched his career as a Sales Representative at Altec after serving as a USMC Ground Supply officer. For the first part of Bryce’s military career he was on the USMC Wrestling Team and the U.S. National Olympic team. Bryce had a long and distinguished wrestling career, culminating in being #1 in his weight class for the 2015-2016 Olympic team.
Through the Cameron-Brooks Career Conference, Bryce earned 5 different offers for employment and decided to launch his career at Altec. He spends some time on this podcast explaining why he chose Altec and why, after 2 1/2 years at the company, he is continuing to grow and thrive.
Bryce and his wife are from Nevada, but he discusses why they chose to start their next chapter in Oregon versus their home state. Ultimately, they felt like the opportunity would be most advantageous to his career. Bryce is now being promoted to a higher-level, strategic business development position after less then 3 years. This role will allow him to navigate to his ideal location in a short amount of time.
Another major part of our conversation focused on discussing how a JMO can get up and running in a territory, especially with no sales or industry experience. Imagine learning a new skill, all the while trying to get an under-performing market to exceed it’s potential. I really like the way Bryce chose to go into a market where it wasn’t all figured out. He ultimately bet on himself and decided he’d rather start where everything wasn’t already established. Like a true competitor, he enjoyed the challenge.
It was great to catch up with Bryce – I think you’ll really enjoy hearing both his experience and perspective.
