DYSLEXIA

Guys i'm an SDR, and i am dyslexic, i hate it sometimes as people just see me as stupid with typo's - yes i use grammerly and yes i proof read. luckily i work sell to marketers and dyslexia is quite common in the field so i get away with it, but does anyone else relate or want to start a support thread with me?

I'm dyslexic it's not something that is forgiven here by my management since they expect me to proof read. The great thing is that English is a 2nd language to all of us in the region so people forgive any mistakes haha.

You know how there’s a line in some people’s signatures... β€œEmailing from my iPhone, please excuse typos.”
Maybe try that?!!?
Or even if you felt like it, you could have a signature line mentioning typos and dyslexia? Not sure if you’d want to go that far or not, but thought I’d throw that out.

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
I have some dyslexic friends who do this with their signature and previously didn't. They've indicated that people are way kinder and will just ask for clarification if there's an issue.

How do you keep yourself motivated under pressure? Yes, I've heard of the usual responses like "finding your why" & "aligning yourself", etc. But I just want to get to the meat of the solution. Are there any specific tactics you guys use to keep yourselves motivated?

So, most people I know did not plan on becoming a sales person initially, it just happened. So, curious to know how my fellow warriors here ended up in sales anyway ? The more interesting stories the better..!!
