What has been an example of a gem or nugget that has helped?

Sometimes just venting to people who get it can help. Otherwise. Professional advise can keep you sane. Tactical advise can keep you current. See @Gastyโ€™s post for today for examples. There are many.

Too many to list. I check out almost every post and see what the responses are. Often I'll find a perspective or approach I hadn't considered.

Buy a couple books, but most of my investment in professional growth is with time not so much money

Time over money, can I ask what do you mean with time? Like practice? Research? Talking to others?

All the above, listening to sales podcasts. Talking to myself in the shower to nail the elevator pitch, and of course posting every question I have here

It's more into knowledge and experience than money.

WR,LI and other experienced sales fellas are great resources of professional growth and development when it comes to useful info and opinions to share!

For me, I had to make a decision about where my time is spent. Am I doing high quality activities or time wastes. Also had to decide on who I surrounded myself with that could help lift me professionally and personally.

I joined a community https://www.gtmunited.com/a/2147532454/ib6ELfSh

Audio books, master classes, and even membership fees to professional organizations.

There might be good nuggets here, but sifting through posts about ways to slack off or if it is ok to hit on your prospect/customer don't really lift me up professionally.
