Part II: The Presentation

You sit in your car eating your Chipotle burrito, listening to the new Chainsmokers song. This is easily the most enjoyable part of your workday.

In Local News by Joe Powell

WEST CHESTER, PA – The fame and fortune that come with being a regional sales manager for a wholesale distributer of gym equipment can weigh too heavy on the mind of the average person. It takes someone with a will as iron as the barbells that he curls. Someone who loudly exaggerates the amount of his commission checks in public. Someone like local tough guy, 34-year-old Bruce Stern.
