Hobbies of b2b salespeople

Curious what most b2b sales pros are into aside from smiling and dialing.


Most of us are competitive i know but does that extend outside of work too? Do people prefer team based sports or individual stuff like Crossfit or BJJ? What about competitive video games like Rainbow 6 or Overwatch vs. more casual games?

If pellet, highly recommend GMG. I am currently building a 150 gal off set out of a reused propane tank tho, so I'm speaking from friend's experience not mine. I also use my Webber Kettle set up with the "snake" method all the time, works great for cooks under 8 hours.

Love this! Do you collect vinyls at all? I love music and just started collecting about a year ago. It's been a fun hobby to get into. I listen to mostly indie as well. I'm excited to go to some concerts this year finally.ย

I have a few vinyls, but I haven't been buying too many recently as it really adds up. Hopefully can get to a few shows this year!ย

I compete in Olympic weightlifting to fuel my athletic competition side and I obsess over espresso as my at-home hobby. Toss in skiing, mountain biking, and craft brew hunting and I've got a well-rounded set of skills and hobbies.

Hiking is huge for me. I'll go with friends sometimes but often prefer being alone.ย 

It's a great way to let your mind de-clutter itself from the week. A stark contrast to the sales grind, Just put one foot in front of the other.

Funnily enough, I like doing things solo or with my spouse/child (Hiking, visiting places etc.)ย 

Gaming is pretty fun too (Please, if you love yourself, don't download League of Legends)
