Dana Brashear started in finance as a bank teller almost 20 years ago. Dana Brashear took the traditional path of moving up through an organization within the mortgage department becoming a processor, originator and eventually management. Through her network, Dana Brashear had an opportunity present itself to aid a de novo correspondent channel grow. 

“Through this avenue, I began building high performance teams and entered project management and I haven’t looked back since.”

Coping with the rat race that the industry is, Dana Brashear says that she has chosen what to give her attention to and then prioritize her work accordingly. It can be extremely overwhelming with the amount of knowledge and changes that is being thrown at you daily.

In a scintillating interview with Anastasia Kuzmenko. Let’s hear about IEC Telecom Group, and get to know more about Anastasia and her professional journey.

Renowned for supplying high-quality satellite-based solutions to customers for more than 25 years, IEC Telecom Group delivers efficient end-to-end voice and data services when and where it matters most.

In this interview with Elinor Stutz, find out more about Smooth Sale

Smooth Sale stands for earning a returning and referring clientele that I teach via writing, speaking, and training. 

Community Service is the centrepiece for the work. It began with teaching job seekers how to sell themselves in interviews. The many thank you notes for enabling people to secure their desired job led to the next book, ‘HIRED! How To Use Sales Techniques To Sell Yourself On Interviews,’ published by Career Press.

Social media was Elinor’s lifesaver upon moving to a town where no one understood her purpose, passion, and perseverance in their unknown. A marketing guru taught me to be collaborative instead of being highly competitive. And she soon realized how to attract interest online vs. attempting to sell.
