'7 Little Johnstons': Trent Accused of 'Stealing Spotlight' From Jonah?

7 Little Johnstons star Trent Johnston continues to dominate in the sales industry. The husband of Amber Johnston has been closing car deals left and right despite being new to the game.

While many find Trent's performance in his new career quite impressive, others seem to have conflicting thoughts about it. Some voiced out their dismay over Trent's competitiveness in the said field. This is despite his previous disapproval when Jonah Johnston first landed the same job.

There's no stopping Trent Johnston from making car sales and bagging commissions. The 7 Little Johnstons dad may be a rookie in the industry, but he's definitely rocking it like a pro.

Trent made the drastic career move in August, officially entering the "corporate world." Shortly after teasing his new work, Trent proudly shared a photo of himself being "schooled" by his son, Jonah Johnston.

The 7 Little Johnstons patriarch revealed Jonah taught him important stuff in sales, seemingly proud of his son's knowledge in the industry. Trent Johnston definitely learned a thing or two from Jonah, and he didn't let it go to waste.

Trent Competing Against Jonah Johnston in Sales?

It seems Trent Johnston successfully applied the things Jonah Johnston taught him about sales. The 7 Little Johnstons stars have bonded well about their similar careers, and they're both nailing it.

But not everyone's impressed with Trent being in the car sales industry. Apparently, some find it odd that the father of five is now fully accepting of the position but was against it when Jonah first had it.

Others think the 7 Little Johnstons star is "stealing the spotlight" on his son. They noted that selling cars is Jonah's "edge," and Trent is unconsciously taking it away from him.

7 Little Johnstons: Amber Johnston Reacts to Claims They Were Not Supportive of Jonah's Career

Amber and Trent Johnston expressed their disapproval of Jonah Johnston's job as a sales agent in the past. The 7 Little Johnstons couple encouraged their son to find a more stable career. They explained that relying on commissions alone may not be enough, especially when he's living solo.

But the couple seemingly clarified that they're not really against the work itself. In response to a fan comment, Amber agreed that there's a huge difference between Trent and Jonah doing the same work now.

It was noted that Trent Johnston switched careers later in his life. He already has enough savings even before starting the new job. This allows him not to fully rely on commissions alone as it tends to be unstable at times.

In Jonah Johnston's case, however, it was his first employment, and he's susceptible to the pitfalls of being on commission versus having a steady monthly paycheck. Despite that, the 7 Little Johnstons star proves he's capable of being successful in the sales field. Now, he's living independently with the same job as before, seemingly proving his parents wrong.
