1.
In
your free time, what do you love to do?

Wow…  Well, since tv and movies don’t exist in the land of Dixie, taking photos and going to
concerts would have to be my top two!  I
run a photography business out of my home, in addition to working here at
Blinds.com….  www.dixieanndalton.com       

2.      
If
you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

Well,
because I love my dog (Arley Madoc Dalton) so much, and he is so smart,
precious, affectionate and spoiled…  I
would have to say that I would want to be a German Shorthaired Pointer
J  How great it would be
able to sleep in the bed, be a vegetarian, only go outside when I wanted to,
and have tons of love from all around!

3.      
What
is your favorite food?

Hmmm…   my favorite food….  Saturday through Thursday I eat extremely
healthy so I would say either Salmon or Falafel…   On Fridays, however, I splurge to all
extreme, so I would say Chocolate Ice Cream or Italian Cream Cake!!

What
are some tips for being a sales representative?

Tips

do you love about working for Blinds.com?
