Something I think was imperative was asking a ton of questions and really learning. I’m lucky enough that I’m in a position that I have a manager who’s a rockstar across our company. He’s always open to learning new things and helping us grow. So I really leveraged that early on and I asked a lot of situational specific questions. Whether it be how to handle current messaging. What strategies to go into accounts with, and it really helped me ramp up really quickly and get to where I wanted to be in the role. Then not only my specific manager, but I also tried to really be a sponge and soak in everything that my peers were doing when I saw that they were being successful. So whether that was somebody in a role that I wanted to move into at some point in the company. Somebody who was doing really well in the BDR spot. I tried to pick and choose things that I saw them doing that were working and put them into my own processes and really try to make a fit there. So that was a big thing for me at the beginning. The second thing is actually just taking action from what I was learning. I think it’s easy to have one thing go in one ear and out the other, especially when you have a lot going on. But to actually be meticulous in what you’re learning and actually action that knowledge to your day to day processes is a really big thing. It doesn’t matter what you’re reading or what you’re hearing in blog posts. You really need to actually put it towards your day to day and see what’s being successful.
