Desperately need some motivation to stop order taking. If I'm lucky, I'm barely gonna hit 100% this Q. I get a ton of leads and feel like I just need to give them what they want and go to the next. But in reality i do non work related shit for at least 1-2 hours per day. When I WFH, I normally wake up 5 mins before meetings. There's enough time but I'm burnt out having not taken vacation in 6+ years. I can't vacation now. I need to crush numbers and hopefully take some time off in January. HELP

Right there with you - I feel like WFH has increased the amount of admin/non-revenue generating activity I have to do by a large margin

I didn't elaborate on the order taking but we sell several products and it's super easy to sell multiple products/the more expensive ones.

Same here... Can you transition the conversation to discover if there is any latent pain or is the process all around getting the order and rolling with it?
