Competition can sharpen our skills raise the quality of those who choose to participate. It is no different for auctioneers. For this episode we sit down with 2001 Women’s Division International Auctioneer Champion JillMarie Wiles. She shares her thoughts competing and what things to consider for anyone considering entering the competition.
- The year as a champion allowed her to grow as a person
- The competition is more about personal drive to do your personal best instead of beating your competitors
- During the moments you are on stage you are an ambassador for the NAA, the industry and yourself. Own it both on and off stage.
