Adding these to my list. Thank you for the recommendations.

This is one of my top 3 books that I have ever read. It is sooooo good. I would highly recommend adding it to your list.

Fierce Conversations by Susan Scott is killer and touches all three of those aspects. Also good ones that I have read alone or with sales teams have been Mindset by Carol S. Dweck, The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy, Dare To Lead by Brené Brown (this is a common one, Brené Brown is a great speaker!)

I want to be able to put the period next to each account type so that the period coincides with the activity for the period. For example, I want the “Period: NOV-20” to be next to COGS and DCOGS in rows 3 and 4, but then have it be updated at row 5 for DEC, row 8 for JAN, etc. I recall there being an easy way to do this via an IF formula, but I can’t remember it exactly. Any thoughts?

I work at a small CRM company in SaaS sales. It’s a small 35 ish employee company with a family-like culture.Been here for 7 years and usually make about 125k gross/year. I work remote, travel the world for free few times/year attending conferences, and just try to sell as much as I can. No stress, no quotas and what you would probably consider a “kushy” sales job. I feel like I could easily be making double at a salesforce and could land the job fairly easily with my experience. Worth the leap?
