Have you ever wondered how Duluth Pack bags aren’t just sold in our 8,500 square foot retail store in Canal Park, Duluth, MN or just our website DuluthPack.com? Just take a moment. Duluth Pack can now be purchased in a retail location in over 30 states in the USA and 11 different countries. This feat does not just happen over night, but rather a team effort with incredible communication and planning skills that many can’t match. This is all done by our Outside Sales Rep team who tell the story of Duluth Pack’s heritage, history,and future. What we possess, what makes us different, and why Duluth Pack is more than just canvas and leather company.
Welcome, Maddy. Our new Outside Sales Representative who has a spitfire of a personality, brings extra spunk to the office, and has a determination like no other. She and other members of our Outside Sales Rep team travel around the country discussing plans, collaborations, private labeling opportunities, and other ways Duluth Pack can impact someone’s life. Without a further ado, here’s Maddy!
How do you…
Start your morning: Go for a run! Then coffee. A lot of coffee.
Stay motivated: I love the feeling of accomplishment, so I do everything I can to end each day feeling like I completed or moved forward with something. It doesn’t have to be something huge, small victories feel just as great. It’s all about perspective and taking the time to enjoy what you have the ability to make or change. That motivates me.
Get inspired: I’m inspired by intelligence, strength, and altruism.
Challenge yourself: I’m very goal-oriented and committed. I like to test my limits and promise to accomplish something that I’ve never done before. Whether that’s setting an insanely high sales goal at work or signing up for a marathon, I won’t stop until I cross that finish line.
Motivate others: Positive energy. Smiling. Cracking jokes. Acting goofy on occasion. When you’re happy, you’re more productive.
Find personal balance: I find balance in nature. I can sit on the shore of Lake Superior and feel incredibly grounded and calm, or I can climb a 14er in Colorado and feel invigorated and unstoppable. My go-to if I’m dragging is a trail run no matter what the weather is doing. There’s just something about that mix of sweat, mud, thrill and fresh air that always put me right.
Stay organized: I make lists for everything! On a scale of 1-10 (10 being organized and 1 being a complete mess) I would say I’m about a 7. Not great, but definitely above average. Also, sticky notes are also a godsend.
End your day: (She had two responses the we like!) 1) If it’s a good day, a good beer. If it’s a bad day, a good whiskey. All in moderation of course. I call my mom. Netflix and chill or read a book until I fall asleep. Clear my head for the next day. 2) I’m typically not a night owl. Evenings typically consist of some sort of sport after work (big into volleyball, cycling and soccer), a call to my mom, and then it’s either Netflix and chill or reading until I fall asleep.
So, next time you see a Duluth Pack in a retail location you recognize (we have teamed up with Barney’s of New York, Urban Outfitters, and Target’s website) just know that there is a team of people behind Duluth Pack being partnered up with another company.
On a side note, Duluth Pack has a strict MAP pricing policy regardless of where you purchase our brand’s product. If you ever have any questions or comments regarding our MAP Policy, please feel free to email our team at: [email protected]
