In a Sales Rut during ramp. πŸ†˜

42 days into a new β€œelevated” role and I’m hitting a brick wall in my prospecting. Does anyone else get in their own head and in their own way?!


Whats your best reset method?

Best thing to do, IMO, is to take a step back, breathe, take stock of what has been happening and think about the blockers that are ACTUALLY there.

As you say, you may be putting up your own blockers and those are, potentially, easier to move out of the way.Β 

Have a look at your book/TAM and think about your strategy towards prospecting.Β 

Prospecting is tough, mate, and a good step back and think and evaluation, often works wonders

I recommend spending a day giving to your prospects as much as possible. Find ways to offer insight or even providing them something for free if possible. One day with totally altruistic intentions and no calls to action.Β

Take an extended weekend to unplug. I mean completely unplug. Don't even think about checking one email. You need to reset.

When I’m stuck I tend to read a sales book or blogs to reset my thinking. I really like β€œFanatical Prospecting” by Jeb Blount and β€œGetting Naked” by Patrick Lencioni
