Reflections on Week 2 at Udemy
It’s always weird starting over when you’ve built such quality relationships at a previous organization. So far, it’s been nice. I enjoy the product, and it’s meaningful work to help employees improve. All of my teammates have helped share best practices around what it takes to be successful here in terms of self-discipline with building out a solid pipeline, being able to properly balance a lot of the sales enablement and training opportunities while making sure that you are always prospecting every day.
I definitely had some FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) when CoachHub received another $200 million in funding during their series C. Still, it was awesome that I got to acknowledge myself for being a part of that and contributing in the way I did. Being so social, I am presented with the fact that I took a 100% remote job. That’s pretty interesting if you know me and how most people say I am the mayor of the office culture. There are some benefits to working from home as well. You are less likely to burn out in terms of when I was working in the LinkedIn Office. For instance, I would wake up much earlier than I do now, and I wouldn’t get back every day until pretty late. This WFH allows me to have a lot more free time because I eliminate the commuting costs.
Udemy’s training has been very thorough and comprehensive, which is great! Being a training and development company, it makes a ton of sense that we have a lot of training and development to be thorough compared to not having enough. We have so many new tools that I can leverage and learn, which is great. Exposure to different tools will help further my career and be strategic and leverage insights to have more intelligent conversations. Overall, I’m pleased with my decision, and having more thoughtful, strategic conversations will pay off and will help me grow and build my business acumen even more. I feel very blessed to have a solid, very productive team, and it seems like there will be opportunities to travel for conferences all over. That is something that I’m looking forward to as I continue to grow and prosper as an Enterprise Account Executive. I’m happy that I can reach this goal before the age of 35. I would have never thought I would be able to obtain this before I reached 35. The original plan was closer to 40 years old.
Although I do think about having kids and being a parent from time to time, everyone always gives me the same advice, which is to value and appreciate your free time now because that is going to go away. It’s interesting how people tend to share advice. I try to take everything with a grain of salt because everyone’s experience is different. I hope you all have a very happy day!
