Initially Kirk was suspicious of a career in sales but as he jumped from operations to sales manager and the industry evolved, he realized that sales is complex, it is a robust wide profession that requires both  soft skills and hard skills. The biggest shift in Kirk’s experience has been a shift from traditional product sales to solution sales.
