"Newspaper sales is about going to businesses, getting to know them and letting them know the benefits of running ads in Eagle Newspaper publications," said Grashof. "I'm very big on customer service. Meeting clients face to face and getting to know their specific needs is important to me. I believe that developing a good rapport with the community is key."
Grashof feels it is highly important to be knowledgeable of not only Eagle Newspaper products, but also the competition's. She is driven, persistent and committed to the company's success.
