Anyone have tips for paying off $136k of student loans (undergrad and mba)? I’m trying to make large payments but now I have no savings or 401k. I’m 25 and just stressed as hell about this :(

To all my SDRs/AEs/AMs/BDRs that are out there, I’m running an experiment that I’ve never seen before: Have you ever worked together with a teammate to close your company’s deals? I’m talking start to finish of sales process, from cold call to closed booking. I’m curious to know if folks always tackle calls by themselves, particularly intro calls, and beyond. Obviously there has to be a handoff at some point, but where is that inflection point? Trust is probably THE most important rapport
