This is my second year working in sales. I'm doing inside sales for an electronics manufacturer, selling to small and mid-sized companies. Before this, I was a bartender for six years, half of them when I was in college. I got into sales after a friend of mine showed me how much money he was making, and I'm making great money now too, without having to work nights and weekends like I was in my "industry" days. But I'm having a really hard time with the mental aspect of the job.Don't get me wrong, making this much money has been amazing. For the first time in my life, me and my fiance are able to take weekend trips and hang out with other professional friends of ours without having to worry about schedules or money, but I just feel so much pressure all the time, and am always worried that I'm not gonna hit my goals and get fired and end up worse off than I was before. Do you have any tips to help me deal with the constant pressure? Is this just gonna be how it is for the rest of my career? I don't know if I'll be able to stick around if this is my future.
