It’s one of our favorite times of each month: our Get to Know ME segment! This time we’re highlighting a new member on the sales team, Allison Stewart. Anyone who has worked with her so far knows how positive and effervescent she is. You can see for yourself in her short video too. Thanks, Allison, for sharing special things about YOU!
What’s your current title and how long have you been at Motivation Excellence?
I’m the Sales Support Assistant and I started in February of 2023.
Since you came from outside the industry, what’s something you’ve learned and especially liked about our industry?
I like how detail-oriented the programs are and have noticed how much effort and time is put into each and every aspect of making sure all our programs run seamlessly, whether it’s an online merchandise program or in-person travel program. The effort and expertise behind every detail amazes me.
As a newbie to the team, what’s something you’ve noticed about the people at Motivation Excellence?
Everyone at Motivation Excellence is so nice!! Everyone is willing to help, is supportive and will jump in to assist if you need help or have a question.
What’s a specific moment in your history that always stands out as a defining moment?
I was able to go on a 5-month study abroad program to Newcastle, Australia in 2008. It was one of the best highlights of my life so far. I can’t wait to go back and didn’t think it would take me this long to get there again.
What’s an unknown or odd talent you have?
I grew up taking dance and tumbling lessons. I can still whip out an aerial and back handspring!
What motivates you to accomplish things in your life (work or personal)?
I don’t like having a to-do list. I am very motivated by nature to cross off all my “to-dos” so that I can spend more time doing what I love most.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Traveling, spending time with friends, family and my two cats, exercising, trying new foods or restaurants, cooking or baking, reading or listening to audio books, doing yard work or being outside if possible, and I love hiking.
One thing that always makes you laugh is?
My cats’ behavior – they are silly and have big personalities.
This month, our theme for social media is Time Management. Do you have any tried and true strategies to stay on time with your tasks?
I make myself reminders and put everything in my calendar, sometimes two calendars. If all else fails, I use sticky notes!
