Sooooo I told the partners at my firm I wanted to get some exposure to a different practice area because I’m not loving what I do. Not abandoning my current team at all, but looking to start exploring a different practice area where there’s a need right now. It’s a small firm. “We didn’t hire you for that. We get you want to grow, but this is where you’re staying.” On the one hand, I get it. On the other hand, kind of shitty, right? Or am I wrong here?

Currently, I manage one practice group in my office, but practice in several areas. I’m having a meeting Monday with firm leadership about transitioning to manage the entire office. It’s the firm’s only office in the state. I’ll have 1 LA, 3 Paras, 4 associates, 1 partner to manage. We continue to grow and will hire more. It’s another step on my path to equity partnership. Any recommendations on what to ask during the meeting? Salary? Perks? Red flags? Mid-Atlantic regional firm, 120 attorneys.

I have no idea what this site is really but despite liking where I work , having my own office , great hours etc - the money just doesn’t cut it . We make association based magazines - 20% for new business , 15 % contracts and maybe 10 if I cut a deal - but they aren’t audited publications and only range from 1-4 issues per year - I’ve consistently finished 2nd in overall sales for over half a decade now at least - but I think I might have made just over 50k on my best year . I mean I’m as good

I worked/billed a ton last week and Monday and Tuesday this week, and then today I didn’t have any meetings or anything and just hit a brick wall - I slept until 10am and just dealt with accumulating non-billable stuff for almost all of the day. Now I feel terrible about it. How do you keep going? I feel awful about today and have such dread about all that I have to do tomorrow 😭 I’m in a new practice area and am super grateful for the work, but the learning curve is hard and I’m struggling!

Hey everyone,

I recently started a job as an outbound, enterprise BDR.

I have no previous experience with sales, but I did really well at first. In my first two months I was at the top of my sales team, and one of the top performers in the national sales org for dials/arr.

I hit a block, and now I can't seem to get passes at all. My effort hasn't changed. But I can't get meetings scheduled.

Has anyone experienced hitting a block like this? How do you overcome it?
