Get to Know Za'Quan
Just like that we're back with some brand new questions mixed in along with some of our original favorites. This week's featured employee on the get to know blog is Za'Quan. I was lucky enough to still be in the office when Za'Quan started. My first impression was wow this guy is quiet. And if you've been anywhere near a My Way Leases, you know quiet stands out. We employee some of the biggest and most fun personalities I ever met. And I know that's a huge help when it comes to our line of work. Normally customers are coming in asking for our staff by name or our deep into conversation with Keith, or Bud before you can hear the door chime. As a quiet person whose done sales, I wasn't sure what to expect from Za'Quan. Before I knew it, any doubts or questions I had were abruptly answered and then some. While still being quiet compared to My Way Leases standards, to say Za'Quan was a natural, found his groove, was a perfect fit, all seem like gross understatements. Since working with him I can say confidently I would take 1000 Za'Quans' as coworkers. He's one of those people who not only does everything he's supposed to do in a timely, correct fashion, but he goes above and beyond what is asked and expected and does it all with the biggest smile on his face. As a marketing guy I can't appreciate him enough. He responds quickly and with in depth answers, posts, shares and interacts on social media and from day one has put nothing but positive energy into the company. I know you'll have as much fun reading his answers as I did so without further adieu, take some time and get to know Za'Quan!
