What you’ll learn in this session
One of the most challenging parts of being a founder is delegating responsibilities. Many founders start their company doing sales themselves, but need to hire someone else to take over if they want to scale. Damian Thompson founded Salesability to help founders hire their first salespeople, build processes, and scale their businesses. In this session, he shares his top tips for handing off sales to your first salesperson.
Why you have to do sales first to build processes for salespeople
When in the lifecycle of your business to hand off sales
Why you should hire two sales reps to start off, not one
What the first 90 days looks like with your first sales hire, and why you should be testing for work ethic over anything else
