I worked at Ray & Clare Stern's too but I was an "instructress ." After it became Jack Lalanne's European Health Spa, (long enough?) I went into sales. I laughed when I read the name Lisa Todd. I remembered it instantly.
But that cold call room was so claustrophobic. I can see why you left.
Actually I was pushed into sales and that's how I made my living for my whole life. Ray did have some words of advice that I still think of. "You never know what you can get unless you ask for it."
