I got tons of great feedback here:
https://bravado.co/war-room/posts/advice-for-a-new-ae

Basically I took all that advice and adapted it to my needs, and so far its been working out well.

My biggest mistake was slowing down on my cold calling and relying on email too much. Stay sharp on the phones and you'll see your pipeline balloon. Good luck!

Get a 1:1 on the calendar with almost every AE at your company, find someone who aligns with your selling style and set up weekly 1:1s

First, congrats! Find one AE who will be your mentor (hire buddy).ย  Meet and shadow all the AEs to learn the product and pain points quickly.ย ย
