TAG Energy and our very own, Mike Ye, won a national sales award, top performing office and top performing rep for 2015. The team was very excited as Mike was called up on stage to receive the award during our summer national conference.
Mike is seen in this video describing why he believes he and the team were able to win such a prestigious award. Every year an office and rep are recognized for being top performing on our business supply campaign.
Crediting work ethic and a great attitude for his success, Mike, remained humble and nonchalant about his huge accomplishment.
Congratulations Mike! We’re proud of you and the team!
Get to know Mike!
What was your biggest struggle in the field?
“My biggest challenge was overcoming my nervousness in public speaking. I am a introvert at heart and a “CS” type personality. When I first started I probably had negative 20 “I”. It is draining for me to talk with so many people and creating so many business relationships for our client. However, the only way to grow and become successful is to be comfortable being uncomfortable. So that is what I do everyday, put myself in uncomfortable situations, take risks, and be awesome.”
What do you think makes you so successful?
“Preparation and executing with a positive mental attitude. “The battle is won in the general’s tent, not on the battlefield.” Preparing each day whether it is practicing my skills, preparing for office duties (campaign or retention manager), or planning out my territory, each day there is some form of preparation involve to make my day more efficient. After planning, the fun begins and I am just executing when I’m in the game like Kobe Bryant playing basketball. Also having a positive mental attitude helps when things don’t go according to plan. Keeping a positive mental attitude allows you to improvise and be creative. As soon as your lose your attitude, you lose your focus and let outside forces dictate how you want to play the game.”
What are some of your big picture goals?
“I want to become assistant manager before the end of the year.
Be promoted to manager sometime next year.
Eventually having an opportunity to run a retail or energy campaign.
Build strong leaders and give them the same opportunities that was given to me.
Internationally expand. Australia would be cool.”
