Becoming the #1 Elite QuickBooks Solution Provider and Reseller doesn’t happen overnight; it takes drive, vision, and the right team to accomplish it. The people behind Fourlane are what keep us growing each and every year. Come learn more about the people who drive Fourlane forward.
This month we speak to Joel Mays II, one of our Account Executives. Prior to joining Fourlane, Joel worked as a sales associate for Cox Communications closing sales in their 3rd party sales channel. He then transitioned to Intuit, Inc. as a Sales Consultant on the High-Value Retention team, working to retaining Intuit’s high-value customers. It was during these roles that he found his passion for consulting and providing solutions to solve business owners’ everyday problems. He lives in Fredericksburg, VA with his wife and kids, and joined Fourlane in August 2020.
What you like about working for Fourlane:
What I like the most about working at Fourlane is the culture and flexibility that the job brings. The company is a 100% remote, which has allowed me to work from home. Cutting my commute time to zero has allowed me to spend more quality time with my family on a daily basis.
Despite being a 100% company, the culture here at Fourlane is strong and there is a sense of unity/family from the leadership team down to your junior consultants with us having monthly roundtables and an annual retreat for all employees to connect and get to know each other. These benefits along with the solutions that we provide to our clients daily are what makes me proud to be a Fourlaner.
What would you want people to know about us?
At our firm, we offer our clients a myriad of solutions; ranging from data conversion to hourly consulting to solve for their everyday QuickBooks accounting problems and business needs. However, There are a couple of things that I always admire and feel strongly about. We always strive to have authentic communication and provide a solution with our clients, even if the solution isn’t us. This, along with our expertise, is often the reason why clients decide to partner with us as their trusted QuickBooks consultants and advisors.
What motivates you to come to work every day?
The main things that motivate me to come to work everyday would be my clients and my family. I enjoy being able to consult with my clients and hear that sigh of relief when I provide them with solution that they have been looking for. Being able to address the on-going issues in their accounting software or processes that they have not been able to solve for the longest time. This, along with providing a great customer experience and also creating a customer for life is something that motivates me to come into the “office” day in and day out.
Family is my next motivator. My desire to be able to provide for them pushes me to “Go Beyond” and dig deep to fight through everyday even when going gets tough, especially in sales. Rejections and disappointments may come, but making sure they are taken care of is my highest priority. That drives me to pick up the phone and make that extra dial.
