Sales is hard. Not hard in the standard sense – sales requires emotional fortitude to survive the daily barrage of objections and quotas. We have a soft spot for sales reps at DiscoverOrg because we sell too.

Take a break from the cold calling and writing emails, and enjoy some light-hearted empathy to get through the day.

dials equals sales meme From day one it was a grind. The sales manager is hard on the team saying, “If you haven’t hit your quota to go back to your desk and put up the phone.”
cold called prospect 16 times meme You spend all day on the phones cold calling prospects.
good objection sales meme After getting them on the phone, it’s not any easier. Leads sniff out the hardest objections. You didn’t prepare for this one in the sales meetings.
sales meeting nicolas cage meme No matter when the internal sales meeting is scheduled, it’s during that golden window of opportunity where hot leads are between meetings and able to talk.
