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?

Does anyone else question how they truly feel about this job? I don’t know whether I truly love it (some days I definitely do), whether I am addicted to the stress of being held hostage to emails and calls (kind of like Stockholm syndrome), or whether I am just doing this because I’ve invested so much time and money to get to where I am. Was there ever a moment where you settled and said “this is for me”. Would like to hear from more senior associates who have just doubled down on it.

I recently was hired on at a plaintiff's firm when I have been practicing on the defense side for three or so years.

If anyone has read it, is it worth it? If not, any good reading ideas?

I weekly Hot take. There is far to much hand holding when it comes to map exploration in many Open world games. I rarely ever use the mark feature because the map is already lit up with way points for every little thing. Take genshin impact. It will lead you to your next quest objectives but any secrets or collectibles don't have a way point. You can even see on 3rd party maps how obnoxious it would be if they all did.
