Starting a Sales Force

The prospect of hiring a salesperson or building a sales force is an important consideration for founders in their pursuit for growth in the market, particularly for B2B/B2E start-ups. The dream is that you would hire a "gun", and they would get out there and make it all happen. Unfortunately, this almost never happens and usually ends in hurt feelings, lost revenue and sometimes damage to brand. Yazz explores this challenge and the importance of preparation and expectation management when making this leap, and presents a business preparedness checklist for founder consideration when embarking on this journey or optimizing it.
