What's up Savages... it's just been one of those days. Apologies for the rant post but this community has really kept me going the last few weeks.
I've been chasing this deal for about three months now. We've been at the finish line for probably 5 weeks. It's a small deal, but the first land at one of my target accounts. My guy (title would make you think he's an EB) has told me he can sign multiple times...I got torn apart on our forecast call today so I just went full aggressive mode to get this fucking 5k pilot signed and at 11am I get "I will sign today" .... 5 pm comes around, I'm calling him, re-sent the DocuSign and he tells me "I can't just sign it".... I don't think this is anything new for anyone here. But I just feel dejected.
I'm having essentially the same scenario with a company I've been interviewing with. We had our 2nd interview last week and I get told he's setting up the 3rd interview ASAP, silence for the next 5 days. I call him yesterday and he's apologetic, says he's going to make the intro for the next interview ASAP. Doesn't happen.
I have just lost all trust in people. You can't trust anything anyone says in this business. And the worst part is you can challenge and qualify it all you want, and you still can't trust it.
I'm just looking for advice here, and maybe I just needed to type it out.. how do you guys recover from a bad day? How do you trust what someone tells you? I count my blessings often / am a huge believer in gratitude. But man the path we've all chosen gets you down sometimes.
Thanks for listening, I know this place isn't supposed to be therapy hour. It all works out in the end (I think?)
Also, two very strong IPA's deep.
