Eric, one of our hardest working Account Managers, is Votion’s September Employee of the Month.
Eric’s goal within Votion is to help others achieve their dreams. Eric would like to teach people how to become better communicators, differentiate between emotional and logical thinking, and help individuals use their natural talents to achieve as much as possible in life.
Something Eric has learned since starting with Votion is patience. After a rough day with clients where he didn’t get anywhere near making his goal for that day, he was able to realize it helped him face his fears of failing and learned to not let that one day define him, Eric said. This stands out to him as the experience (within Votion) that has taught him the most.
Eric has two big role models within Votion. He wants to be a better manager like Cristian, and more consistent with goals like Alan.
“Their actions are evidence of their convictions,” he said.
Eric’s favorite hobby is hiking — being involved with nature makes him feel spiritually aligned, he said.
His proudest moment was when he was helping his eldest daughter overcome adversity on the basketball court. She followed in Eric’s footsteps as a point guard and captain was of the team.
Eric says that his daily motivation is that “everyone is here for a reason.” He would like to start his own non-profit organization that allows him to teach Mayan kids in Mexico to free dive, which helps with the conservation of the environment.
“They have no clue what’s under the water,” Eric said. He explained that the Mayan kids work almost every day, so they don’t have a chance to act like kids.
