Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career. I’m currently reading sales books, watching Keenan’s YouTube channel, and learning all I can. I’m relentlessly applying for SDR positions but I’m having trouble landing interviews (been applying through LinkedIn).

Do you miss the office interaction with people when you are totally work from home? I have a good group that I work with but have an offer with a 42% raise and a $10,000 sign on bonus, but it is total work from home and I’ll live 1,500 miles from the physical office.

Currently, I have a "sales drought." It's been 2 months that I have not achieved anything and everyone tells me it's normal, but I feel it will be forever. Since I started, I have done very well, but now I do not know what is happening- nothing works as before.

Dads in the group, need help
I’m a new dad with a 1yr old daughter.
She woke up a bunch of times in her sleep last night calling ‘dada’. Since she went back to sleep as usual in a minute, I didn’t pick her up. I was watching her on the monitor. I went this morning to her room, I noticed her diaper leaked, full of poop & all over her. Her bum was full of rashes. I feel so broken & hurt that I ignored her cries and wasn’t there for her when she needed me.
