End of Q3 Check-in - Champagne or Job Change?

My savage crew,


We're approaching the end of the Q3 (T-minus 1 week for me).


How we all doing?

Who's soaring above the clouds?

Who's close but no cigar?

Who's sprinting for safety?

And who's already moved on?


For myself, mixed bag smashed some metrics and others were ehh, but helping the company build out its process from scratch so it be Gucci.

Also if anyone needs a feature on their upcoming rap single let me know. If T-Pain can rhyme mansion with wiscansin, then champagne and job change be crushing it.ย

Just closed my second-biggest deal in my pipe last week that gets me to 92% of my annual number.ย 

Got my personal biggest and 3rd biggest deal in the company set to close this week that will get me way past my number and within a few thousand of Pres Club.ย 

Was a slow start to the year but momentum into the backend is hopefully paying off.ย

Q3 is looking rough. Such is sales. We are rebuilding our team and our TAM is in rough shape right now, brighter days ahead.ย

I feel you on the TAM, our current go-to sector is so reliant on them having a project that's relevant that I'm here praying that someone gets in touch as I can't force anything.ย

Fair to midland. Iโ€™m dissatisfied with what Iโ€™ve closed, but thatโ€™s the cycle. Close of Q1 โ€˜22 is the real look.ย

To hit quota, I just need to close one more deal. The only one that looks feasible is one thatโ€™s been ongoing since June 2020 (our sales cycle is usually a few weeks to a few months). They are waiting for โ€œfinal approvalโ€ and โ€œthere is nothing left for us to do, they hope to have the all-clear by fridayโ€ so Iโ€™m sweating it!

112.5% to Q3 budget but building some extra cushion because Q4 could be a shit show and want a bit of cover in case Q4 goes in the can.

If the two deals I think will close this week do, I'll double my sales for the year :)
