Much is expected of you as a revenue leader. Whether you’re new in your role or you’re taking on a new challenge the pressure to perform is intense. And the reality is you don’t have time to squander and you can’t spend a ton of resources on a bet. Your timeline is short, you either show results or you risk losing your job.
The first 3 months are the most crucial to your success, as well as the success of your initiative. In this time, you face a steep learning curve while having to equally care about long-term goals and quick-wins to build credibility and momentum. The pressure worsens when all we see are the highlight of others hitting their goals and making transitions look seamless. What we see is often the result of the hard work it took to succeed and not the journey to get there.
What happened before the social post, before the boardroom presentation or before the performance review?
The First 100 Days takes a peek behind the curtain giving unscripted access to revenue leaders who are willing to share the ups and downs of taking on any new challenge with one requirement: it has to work. Learn from the lens of both success and failure while gaining exclusive resources to help you navigate the first 100 days of any opportunity.

Nelson: Okay. Uh, ready when you guys are,
Trinity: wait, wait, wait
Christian: let's go on. Hi, I'm Christian
Trinity: I'm Trinity
Nelson: And I'm Nelson. And each week, twice a week, we are going to be keeping it 100 for all the revenue practitioners going above and beyond to reach their organization's goals. We're going to focus on the spooky first 100 days of any new role or initiative where we often make or break it.
Trinity: The reality is if you're in a revenue role, the pressure to perform is intense and often the headlines don't give the details. So the story of how a goal was reached is rarely the hook, which creates this unrealistic measure of success. So often you're left in awe when you read these stories, but you have no clear steps on how to replicate those successes for your own work.
Christian: And as result, we start to compare ourselves to the very best those who've accomplished those lofty goals with a gnawing feeling of am I good enough? The time we feel most insecure is in our first 100 days of anything.
Nelson: Welcome to the first 100 days, a show for revenue leaders from UserGems. We set out to create the show because there are talented, creative, frankly, humble people who crush it, paving new roads and highlighting.
Trinity: Wait, wait. I'm not sure we explained it enough. What's so important about the first 100 days?
Christian: In the first 100 days of anything we're getting thrown into the cold water. We need to work on tasks we've never done before. And at the same time management has high expectations for us and the project to succeed.
Nelson: During our in-depth conversations, we're taking a peek behind the curtain, giving you unscripted access to those revenue leaders who are willing to be vulnerable showing the many ups and downs of taking on any new challenge. Helping you navigate any opportunity.
Trinity: The first 100 days is launching in December, 2020. Join us to uncover how these revenue practitioners approach their first 100 days with one goal in mind:
Nelson: it, whatever it is, has to work,

Christian: Just one second, before I do anything wrong here, how do I stop it?
