Enterprise Sellers State of Mind in Feb 2023
Hey - Jamal here.
Is 2023 putting you on an emotional roller coaster? Elated about a big deal going well only to get laid off the next week? Think you're alone? You’re definitely not.
In this edition I report back on the LinkedIn post I did last week asking sellers their state of mind right now. The news is bad and offers a constant drumbeat of doom and gloom but I wanted to see how it is affecting the broader community of sellers out there.
I’ve broken down the most representative responses from most down to most up.
There will be minimal commentary from me as these responses are so real, so telling, they stand on their own.
Before we get started - I'm excited to announce we just launched a brand new Enterprise Sellers Community website! Check it out and let me know what you think. If you're an ambitious enterprise seller who wants to network, learn and grow from the best, and close life-changing deals, you can apply here.

Whatever your mindset these days, I hope you have seen through these perspectives that tons of other sellers are feeling the same as you. There are downs and there are ups. Such is the roller coaster of enterprise sales, especially during the challenges of economic downturns.
Do you have a space to process the challenges in your selling reality? It can be hard to share stuff like this with immediate team members within your company. It can be even harder to talk through it openly with anyone after you’ve been laid off.
We offer the Enterprise Sellers Community as a safe place. It's the home of enterprise sellers everywhere. If you sell to $1B+ accounts at a B2B tech or services company, fill out the short application form, pass the interview process, and you're in.

The Only Way to Overachieve Is By Doing Mega Deals
Throughout my 20 year career as an individual contributor enterprise seller, I was obsessed with finding the secret to personal financial success. Over the top, ludicrous personal income. My search led me to several "aha" moments. Here are the top four:
