    What’s your biggest weakness and how have you tried to overcome it?

    At what point did you recognize that you wanted to be in sales management instead of just sales?

    What accomplishment are you most proud of?

    If you were going to start a company, what would it be and why?

    Who has been your greatest mentor?  What did he/she do for you that other didn't?
