Startups: What to do first when you're the first one in - Seth List Details Download
Joining a startup, especially as one of the first sales hires (if not the first) is incredibly exciting.

You've spent hours with inspiring, visionary founders in the interview process, you've met half (or more) of the existing team, and you've walked away with warm fuzzies. You've seen the product and asked a ton of questions, and you eagerly take the job feeling like you're getting in while the getting is better than good. It's great!

You ride the wave of excitement for a few weeks between signing the offer and your first day on the job. Then you show up. And the full weight of the realization hits you: just how little you have to work with. No process, no tools, maybe a CRM full of garbage or (worse yet) a CRM full of nothing at all.

You've got no data, no process, no marketing support, no guidance. In addition, you've got some BHAG in front of you and a whole lot riding on your shoulders.

In this session, Seth List, Director of Sales at Student Loan Genius, will share personal experiences being the first one in, and facilitate an open Q&A to talk through some of the issues you may be facing as an early-sales hire in a budding startup.
