Question

I have 18 years of project management, sales, sales management experience in the automotive and playground recreational products industry and I recently decided that I want to become a Business Analyst.

My experience with problem solving complex issues, sales, project management experience and running a small business gives me a broad base of experience which appears to fit nicely with what this type of position requires.

Nothing could distract him from getting that ball into that net.
