About EA Worldwide:

Josh Cote says "because nearly all businesses rely heavily on the revenue generated from the sales of their product or service, experience in sales opens doors in every industry, in every company. For those that have worked in sales, the reality is that role taught more than just how to communicate with people, and more than how to present a product or service attractively. Sales teaches an incredible work ethic, a level of resilience that creates a stronger mentality, it teaches discipline and a level of professionalism that will take an individual so far in their career – whether or not that turns out to be in sales long term".

As a business owner, Josh Cote has spent a lot of time looking at the traits and experiences of really successful businesses. He believes that success can be replicated, and that there is certain traits in a person that sees them maximise opportunities differently to the average person. Starbucks billionaire, Howard Schultz, started his career in sales with Xerox before he started in the coffee shop where he worked his way up to CEO and grew the chain to 16,000 stores worldwide. Ralph Lauren was a college dropout who worked as a sales clerk at a store Brook Brothers. He sold $500,000USD worth of ties for the store that year, before launching the Ralph Lauren Polo line the following year. Warren Buffett, the world's 2nd wealthiest man as of December 2014, says he learnt the basics of driving a hard sale by selling packs of gum and other small goods from his dads store to neighbours by going door to door in the evenings after school.

Josh Cote believes that, as long as an entrepreneur focuses on the bigger picture and never loses motivation, they will be able to learn a lot from these seemingly uninspiring roles, which will stand them in good stead in the future. Starting in door-to-door sales himself, Josh Cote believes it's important for budding entrepreneurs to understand that in order to succeed, it's sometimes necessary for them to learn from jobs they may not want to do.
