Resources have been huge, already checked out some of the books listed in threads, the Annie Duke zoom was fantastic, and picked up her "Thinking in Bets" book as well. 

Tips and tricks from others have been awesome too. All in all, love this community.

Learn and share, have a focused community without CTOs and Marketing to tell me cold calls are dead and sales is easy.

I can't wait to leverage this platform when they introduce DM feature. I think we all can benefit more from it

It'll be interesting how that's incorporated & regulated as one of the most influential factors of the platform is its requirement for pseudo-anonymity.

I know of a way to do it. Anonymous-ception. If I have to send you a DM then I have to choose a temporary username to send you a DM that's different from the one that I have. That way you won't know and if we decide to work together then we can choose to reveal ourselves later. Just a thought

I was thinking about this too, like if we get random generated numbers for usernames

Commission exchange is just a bonus for me, had no idea that was a thing when I first signed up.

Love the idea of the War Room and all these salespeople coming together. Never did I think I would be in sales but here I am and now we have an opportunity to learn from one another as well as share stories. 

Looking forward to many more conversations. :)

Same! Very cool concept, and glad to have been accepted with so many people on the waitlist. I'm not your typical salesman as a recruiter but this platform has been very helpful and informative and enjoyable!

I originally joined because I couldn't - the whole "wait list" thing was a great concept and kept me paying attention to something I would have moved on from if it didn't exist.
