About to moving to Mountain View. Now I am afraid the town can be so boring for a professional single woman in her late 30’s. Are people social and energetic there? Should I better off choosing NYC?

MTV is not really social or energetic. SF would fit the bill better.

Anxiety before your sales demos?

Do these 2 things I used to do to get over it:

1. Know the product inside out - it will take time for you to gain confidence in your sales abilities but if you know the product will you’ll be more confident in that domain.

2. Do more demos - the more calls and presentations you do the more comfortable you’ll get. My advice is to try to get on a lot of presentations, even with leads that aren’t so good.
