What does your typical day look like?

I start my work day around 7:20 am and filling up a cup of coffee. The Denver office starts with a huddle between all teams and talk about the sales we made the day before & goals for the day to focus on. Then around 8 we hit the phones. At Signpost, you have complete liberty on how the day spent is best for you. Come in every day ready to hustle!
