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?

New CDC study in MMWR: Hospitalization risk for vaccinated people during the late summer Delta wave was similar to that for unvaccinated people with documented prior C19. Much higher for unvaccinated immunonaive people obviously. It’s becoming clear that the C19 vaccines don’t stop transmission *and* that they’re not likely to keep people out of the hospital who have already encountered the disease. So why would orgs move down the path to endless boosters again?
