Sell hell: Dealing with the pressure of sales


I have been working in subscription sales at the same company for more than 10 years. I am finding it increasingly nerve-wracking to meet my targets as the market seems to be more and more cluttered with competitors, and I have been getting a lot of pressure from my boss. To make things worse, all my former colleagues have left for greener pastures and I am now surrounded by newcomers, who don't have the same pressures on them as they ease into the role. I have been losing sleep from the stress, with each sale seeming like a temporary lifeline. Is it time to join my ex-colleagues and move on? Sellsellsellhell
