I must confess, in recent years I have struggled to go this far in any course that I started let alone completing one. As a father of 3 (the youngest is just 9months old) and an entrepreneur, I get overwhelmed. The layout and process of this course made it easy for me to push myself and commit to it. The fact that you thought growth mindset early in the course helped position me and my mindset and that became a driver for me. I enjoyed the course, the instructors are awesome and I am so glad. I know this is course 1 of 5, but I am feeling a sense of accomplishment; I believe it will serve as a motivating factor for me to continue and even do some other courses.

This was an amazing course. A lot of what I learned, I used in a previous job. However, in applying this information to an SDR Role broadens my way of thinking. I did a lot of self-reflection: Fueling a Growth Mindset, having grit, focusing on near wins, building self-confidence, understanding my working style and energy patterns, and finally habits of tactical strategy. I also learned the 80:20 rule. I actually wrote this on a whiteboard at my work, and told my colleagues about it. In the final week I learned more on being accountable and taking full responsibility. I highly recommend this course to anyone.

At first I struggled with application created for this course but after some time I got used and enjoyed it well. Another thing that interested me is that you combined video and notes and students are able to save notes on the app.The lectures were not fast so that those of us that English is not a mother language can understand better .Thank your the entire time to your support. And my special appreciation should go to madam Naomi, you are indeed a gifted lecture

The course was good to explain what SDR role is. In this role, I learned the importance of taking feedback positively, using self-reflection to improve one's quota, planning a weekly schedule, and adjusting that scedule for disruptions. Also, I learned about growth mindset and its importance in any role. I think planning the weekly schedule is the most important lesson I learned in this course. I recommend this course if you are thinking of being an SDR or want to decide if you want to persue this role or not.

Very helpful. The various strategies for success, from taking 100% responsibilities, to Grit/Perseverance, and Collaboration/Competition, were clearly laid out and explained. I was able to put these new ideas to work immediately in my new job and have really helped me feel empowered and excited about what I'm doing. Plus it gave me things to continuously work one. Really great class!

This is one of the most practical courses I ever had through online learning. It gives not only you the basics of the sales process, explanation about the job desk within the roles involved, but it also gives you training on soft-skills for your personal and professional life.
