10-15 Friday Happy Hour - exhaustion edition

Hey All!


Happy Friday. Another week in the books. Two deals that pushed out of Q4 for me just closed so off to a fast start this month/FY.


I hope everyone is off to a good start for their Q4.


We’ve had a dreary week in the Chicago area which sucks the life out a bit. Going to have to bring it back with a nice stout from Revolution Brewing. They released some barrel age stuff this week so I’ll be diving into some Deth’s Tar.


Whats in your glass this Friday?


Cheers All!

Sup g.

It was a good week for me, I think Q4 will be my strongest quarter this year. 

This week has felt long AF though, I'm happy it's the weekend.

Deciding between kombucha because I should be healthy today plus I have shit to do after work, or beer because...beer. I know what ya'll will suggest.

Solid week for me. Closed a deal that pushed me into Pres Club. The rest of Q4 is looking ok, not great.

As for the drink, my Oregon Ducks play tonight so I'm gonna need a full 12 pack of Silver Bullets just for myself. Still haven't figured out what I'll drink for the second half of the game yet though.

Congrats on making it so early in the Q.   I think all my deals are going to close the last week of the quarter just to spite me, despite everyone having paper in hand right now.

Chicago weather this week has been a real downer, quite literally. Sunshine coming though tomorrow though! In the meantime, my glass will be filled with tequila, and a lot of it

Was in Chicago last week for a conference. The weather felt like I was in portland/Seattle. I took two gummies 20 mins and gonna make some calls. Let's see if I can keep it together..lol

I'm actually on vacation today and enjoying disney. Of course I had two emails from work that I couldn't avoid because I don't have much support from the team... so that kinda sucks that I can't fully turn off my brain from work mode.
But I'll be pool side double fisting soon so I will care much less in about an hour lol

Drinking bitter tears after the end of last night's NLDS.  

Life goes on.   Season opener for hockey is this weekend, so I'm off to cheer on my own kid in a sport for a change.

I hope to totally unplug from work, because right now it pretty much owns me for 10 hours/day and I'm drained.

Supply Chain issues have pushed 60% of my Q4 pipeline into 2022. But it’s still early and im not down and out by any means. This week in particular did beat me up a bit so I’ll be licking my wounds poolside with a pack of Nooners wishing I was licking @CuriousFox red bottoms 😛🥂 Cheers ya’ll

I met some lady for happy hour, and she began to layout her roadmap to “success” in dating her, which involved months of courting and no sex. She also used the phrase, “I like it when a guy sweats me.” I told her the only sweating I do is on a basketball court. I promptly closed out and pressed on. Dating blows. The Hendricks G-and-Ts and 2 old fashioned’s I had were tight tho.
