1. If you're putting out a ton of fires you need to figure out the source and make sure it's not you.
2. If the source isn't you or you systems, work some longer days to get fires out and regular activities so you don't get behind.
3. If you feel overwhelmed remember, you still eat an elephant one bite at a time.

Can anyone share their Enterprise Sales Best practices? I'm starting a new Enterprise AE role and really want to get off on the right foot with my process/system using Salesforce (approx 100 accounts)

Can you share your prospecting efforts without a Sales Engagement tool? Do you use tasks to update activities? Send emails in SFDC?

scratchpad looks good for updating notes/fields. Going to try that. Would love best practices with outbound activities.

Thanks!
