My next guest is Aidan Swanepoel, an experienced sales rep and inspiring entrepeneur. He studied Hospitalities and Marketing Management at Fanshawe College in London. Over the last year, he has been working full time as a Sales Representative at Shred-it. Aidan has learnt more from the past year in terms of how business’s operate for than he had in 3 years of school. Sales is something he loves doing and sees himself pursuing the craft for years to come. Aidan says watching me over the last year has opened his eyes to the entrepreneurial efforts of creating your own business.
