Dear Sacred Rides Team: Let me just say you had me at “We’re looking for a rockstar”! When I logged onto Facebook today and saw a call out for a Business Development Director position with Sacred Rides – I was definitely intrigued. When I looked a little deeper and realized you were starting a new Explorer line for noobs – I could not believe my eyes!! A chance for me to help and provide for people like me!! To give you some background, I love life to the fullest and feel I am presently stuck in an occupation that depresses and oppresses me by severely restricting my ability to be outdoors and on the trails! I long each day for the opportunity to get outside and explore! I had originally gotten into the mountain biking scene back a bit in high school and again approximately 10 years ago. Unfortunately living in Essex County, the land of only 30’ of elevation change and where there are only roadies, it became incredibly more difficult to travel to ride. I eventually stopped travelling and riding alone and got back into running more. I have participated in road, trail and adventure races and loved every minute – the more travel involved the better! Fast forward a number of years, I meet my soulmate – an avid outdoorsy mountain biker with excellent trail skills, who promptly upgraded my ride from the traditional 26er to a more fluid 29er and my love of this sport has been rekindled! I still love to run the trails but there is nothing better than ripping a great downhill on some sweet single track, tackling a technical climb or tearing only 1 pair of spandex on a trip – wheeeeeeeee!! I have spent the past couple of years trying to re-establish and hone my “line picking” skills. I have done lots of riding in Michigan (where I am in the process of moving to) and we have made an annual pilgrimage to Brevard and Asheville, North Carolina. As for previous occupational experience I can tell you I am considered a valued team player in my working environment and I also work well on my own. For the past ten-years I have had the opportunity to work within many different occupational settings. I am a Registered Massage Therapist by trade with the majority of my practice being involved with sport and rehabilitation. I was also a group leader in a local learn to run clinic leading a group of determined individuals on the start of their running journey and into their first 5k as well as head trainer with a few local hockey teams. These experiences have enabled me to enhance my assessment, judgment and organization skills within different environments, while refining my ability to select premium road trip movies. Accepting challenges is the foundation of my life experiences and something I also do with confidence. I am physically fit, enjoy running marathons and I am beginning to branch intro the Ultramarathon circuit while beginning my entry into the world of bike racing (to start at my age – the horror!!). I feel that I have excellent communication, interpersonal and analytical skills that I have gained from my varied experiences working with people from diverse populations and age groups. I offer you an eager and kick-ass attitude, with a willingness to utilize my current skills and experience to the fullest – I have no problem taking the good with the bad! I love being able to discuss my experiences with people and assist people in making their initial experiences their best! I have experience working with and treating people of all athletic levels and abilities and continue to educate myself on different nutritional and training ideas. I have included my resume for you – and while there is not a significant amount of sales experience, I feel that I can make up my lack of experience with heart and hard work. I am willing to attend training courses to further these skills (as I love to chat with people, contacts are easy for me to attain). I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you, at your convenience, to discuss all of my qualifications further. Thank you in advance for your consideration (I only wish I had discovered you sooner). Sincerely, Jodi Welch
