Roxanne Cowan

Name: Roxanne Cowan

Age: 23

City of residence: Edna

Current title: Elderly care employee for an assisted living facility and a nursing home

First job: My first job was selling Rainbow vacuum cleaners door-to-door. It only lasted about three days.

What it taught me: With that job, the first thing you did was go door-to-door and perform a clean air survey. After that, you called the homes up to set up demonstrations. I don't think I set up a single demo. The thing I learned there was that I'm not a good salesperson.
