Working Retail | The Truth Behind It

I started working my first job in retail at 16.  Quiet, shy, scared are all words that describe how I felt but also excited.  Thrilled to have a job but terrified of actually interacting with customers.

Fleet Feet Sports was my first job, I started simply restocking the shoes, clothing, and more never having to actually speak to customers which at the time was very good for me.  Eventually, I learned how to take a customer through the Fit Process and that is when I had to stop being scared of talking to people.

Looking back I am still surprised as to how shy I was even around other employees, I remember the first time I actually started being myself and came out of my shell.  Still laughing thinking about that night.
