Being a sales professional is hard. Breaking news, we know. Hard doesn’t mean impossible, however, and anyone can succeed in sales if they’re willing to learn from their mistakes and the mistakes of others.

The path to success in a sales career will always be littered with lessons learned, horror stories, and endless amounts of examples of, “I wish I knew this when I first got started.” With that in mind, we asked a few of Orum’s incredible sales team exactly that question.

Below, you’ll find their answers. Whether you’ve been in the sales industry for decades or you’re reading this blog post on your first day as an SDR, these tips can help you reach your sales and career goals faster.

A huge part of sales is learning from your own mistakes but perhaps you can skip over some of those instances by learning from OUR mistakes first.
