Sales Guy?

Mondays are painful. The weekend tends to get over way too soon and Sunday nights are not relaxed. I start getting depressed about the new week ahead.

I woke up today at 845. The alarm was set for 7 am. I smoked two cigarettes just to wake myself up, and headed for a shower. I made myself a quick breakfast with corn flakes and some mangoes. I strolled into office at 1015; and boss called me for my funnel review. I knew it was not going to be nice.

“So what are closing this week?”
“Nothing”
“That’s what you said week; and what about the ones you committed last month?”

Such questions have no answer to, and I went through with this for two hours. Each and every case in my funnel was drilled down to the bone. I needed a smoke after the two hour date.

“And come to office earlier from tomorrow!”

I then left to meet my customer at the university. There was a tender that was royally screwed up by a channel partner of ours. After the cleanup work, I was, I was back in office; trying to sort out the escalations at another customer location. The last 3 months, I have had my bandwidth choked because of one customer who can’t seem to get his enterprise hardware working. I am surprised such people are given money in crores to spend on IT. I am not complaining about the money, but I do wish they learnt a few basics of IT.

I rolled out the education bundles finally in the evening. I have a feeling they would click and we can get some money out of it too. It’s an interesting concept, where the college also makes money. Hows and whys, I could probably not share online.

I came back home at 8 PM, and made myself a drink; to write this first post in the series. Tomorrow is a new day, so let’s keep the cash register ringing shall we?
