In the nine years that I’ve been in the chocolate business I’ve made some great telephone friends. I work with wonderful gourmet companies around the country and through the years my sales reps and I have really gotten to know each other.
Recently, one of my favorites, a young woman named Amber left her job to pursue other options. During the years of our telephone business relationship/ friendship she had given birth to two boys and the demands of the job and raising two young kids inspired her to switch gears and work from home.I loved the great conversations that we shared…and felt so elated every time we talked. Amber helped me back in the days when I was the newbie in the chocolate industry …and for that I will always be grateful.
So Amber…this column is dedicated to you! Thank-you for your great service and your friendship. Best of luck in the future.You will be missed!
