Use the search bar and search for advice. That'll be a good starting point.

One of us! One of us!

Like others have said, use the search bar to call up subjects that youโ€™re curious about. Canโ€™t find what youโ€™re looking for with the search bar? Thatโ€™s a great opportunity for you to make a post and solicit comments from others!

My only other advice about making posts is try to be as specific as you can. Itโ€™s hard to start an insightful discussion without the proper context.

Learn by doing. Start a business of some sort. Even a joker one. Start selling lanyards. You'll learn more doing that then you ever will just reading. Read, try things, fail, and try again. You're at the perfect time in your life to start a business.ย

nice idea.. but like shouldn't a business have a lot of other things and especially an ulterior motive too.

No. Lol. If you look at most entrepreneurs you'll see that most of their first businesses were shitty nothing businesses. I know people who sold shitty knockoff headphones. Fireworks. Drugs. My favorite one from recent was shapewear, from a college guy. He never wore the product, the girls he dated never wore his product. It was strictly to make money. And he did make money. Lots of it.ย 


Maybe you'll stumble into Facebook or maybe your business will make $1000. But I will tell you that you'll learn way more by starting a business than you will doing any job. And any entrepreneur knows this. So when you go to apply for jobs, we see drive, full sales cycle, marketing, social, thinking outside the box, thinking like an owner, etc.ย

That's an interesting experience - is there anything you can learn from the management of that team?ย 

Let you shadow, "intern"?

Start connecting with people who have been doing sales for a while.ย  Going out for coffee always warrants great advice and good conversation about topics you're looking to focus on.

It's always good to read up on things, but I've always found it helpful to hear real stories and practices help a lot along the way.

Are you an experienced professional maybe you and i can connect and you can maybe guide me through the basics.

I'm always happy to connect, sometimes a little more challenging when this is anonymous.
