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?

Hi fellow HR folx! I am hoping for shared ideas on a project I am working on. We’re looking to revamp our attendance policy, which needs a more encouraging, positive element. I am curious if my fellow HR folx are willing to share what has worked for them or really what good looks like. Not sure if this is the right bowl to share this post in, but if there is one-I’d like to get to the right direction!

Need advice on side hustles and PT gigs. I work FT, my wife runs her own business PT while caring for our kids, and we are STILL living paycheck to paycheck. Combined we make over $80k/yr, but it's still tight. My wife is saying she can go back to work FT and shut down her biz, but a) I know this would make her unhappy, b) we want to prioritize our time with our kids before they start going to school, and c) we already pay for PT daycare and it's EXPENSIVE. FT is outrageous. Thoughts?
