Your network is your networth.
1. Always be authentic 2. Do your research 3. Ask smart questions

Just be super outgoing until I get to my room. It’s effin’ exhausting. Come up with some good openers and good questions ahead of time. Makes it easier.

Patience and be yourself. Networking isn’t winning someone with an elevator pitch, it’s frequent small interactions that demonstrate you’re a person that people want to be around

Considering switching from consulting to sales engineering/presales.

Getting clients engaged during the sales process, doing demos, and helping get them ramped up via workshops is the highlight of my work for me.

Curious about which level to aim for given that I'm coming in with 15+ YoE.

Also curious about switching away from the technology stack that I've mostly built my expertise around (EPM/CPM) to more broader analytics / SaaS toolsets... How hard is that transition?

How do you know when you’ve crossed the line of being “blunt”… where you’re too direct in a mean way? Related to work, but actually this is happening more in normal life… I’ll say something and then think that it might be too blunt that it’s mean, but it’s actually what I want and intend to say 🤷🏻‍♀️

For context: I’m upper 20s, have multiple degrees, multiracial, small Midwest “nice girl”, but have had lots of life experiences across the world.
