Moved OUT of a sales role recently (spent two years) for those same reasons. The potential payout wasn't enough for the sacrifices to my quality of life and mental health. The thing about sales is, either you're schmoozy and do this naturally or you struggle to keep up and it takes a lot out of you. I learned how to be good at it and learned some great skills that my current colleagues don't have, but I'm not gonna lie and say it was easy

Takes some time to get used to any new role. Eat well, sleep well, and understand you’ll need some time to find your footing

I was in a wealth management sales role at an RIA. Was responsible for cold calling, setting up meetings, some basic client service, running models; but mostly cold calling lol to meet sales targets.

Just curious - @OP and @JPMC1, what were your responsibilities / Day to Day?

Interesting. How did you transition out of that? I'm asking because my buddy is 1 year into a really similar position and wants to move out but isn't sure what he can do after.

I transitioned? Applied a bunch of places? Finagled my skills and experience into a role (incidentally one I'm extremely good at, so not really a finagle).

I’ve been a high performing IC at my company for 5 years, and every time a manager role comes up that I want to go for, I’m told that ‘it will be a pay cut’ and ‘I might be bored moving to management’ etc…I’m already the most senior sales rep in the office & regularly help out teammates. I feel ready to try and make the move to manager, but I’m always told to ‘hang in there as things might come up that will be more fitting later’. I feel I won’t ever get the opportunity to lead. Any advice?

Do I still keep charging half? AITA?
