Welcome. What about the role are you interested in learning about?

Note: It’s a sales role almost exclusively for 3-5 years.

Just got through the process with EJ, and I am told by the recruiter they will be making an offer. Yes, I understand the front end sales load.

I have some thinking to do.

Most of what I want to learn is /Rumsfeild "unknown unknowns" /Rumsfeild

So I will survey the board and lurk for now.

A few referrals (lol) to a thread I would like to read, Wolf's thread? Probably about door knocking? Can anyone link it for me?

Thx.

You’re off to a great start. Can’t search? And you’re “aware there is a front end sales load”

EJ is bringing a lot of great new members this week. Welcome

Yeah, I did a user search, a search with various forms of username wolf and terms doorknocking.nothing. Pretty sure I know how to search. Friendly bunch!

I have heard the search tools in forums often suck, so I didn’t make a huge effort.

Well, I guess I will find out, as I just agreed to the terms and will have an offer letter next week.

Pretty excited actually. I am no TheWolf22 but the idea of doorknocking does not frighten me one bit. I have done it a fair bit for political campaigns. 

Dunno (and I guess I will learn) if that will be the most productive way, but certainly not discouraged if it proves to be.

Big question is picking a territory. Apparently I need to lock that in when I come onboard. I am in a city of about 2 mil, so there are a few spots, the farther I go either the higher the demographic or the more virgin the territory. My partner's job is permanently located in a specific place, so either I commute, she commutes, or I work near her practice.

Anyhow, my life, chapter three (lol), here we go, page one. Guess I will have to create a pithy signature for this board.

At this stage of the game “your territory” doesn’t mean a damn thing. Nothing matters right now but names, numbers, and your state of mind. Collect the first two and learn how to manage the latter.

You’ll learn a lot about yourself over the next ______ , well, for as long as your grinding, I suppose

Interesting. They are telling me I really want to think about it, as I will want my office near where my clients are.

Issue is we are going to move at some point in the next 3 years, so thinking of the possible commutes. 

I think that I will save the stress and take the area around her practice, saves any future arguments over commutes, ect, and I think the EJ brand would do better there than in the higher demo as well.

It's a greying Italian neighbourhood (well, diverse really). 

That is where I will put the first pin on the map lol.
