Let me tell you a story. It's why you - an experienced sales veteran - will want to consider joining a small coffee roasting company.
Five years ago, a guy with an MBA and strong tech & operations background cofounded a fintech startup. During an investor pitch, an angel - a high school dropout who built the largest commercial HVAC company in the Midwest - easily picked out every weakness within the space of minutes. He didn't invest. And he made the right choice (for where the startup was at that time.) The MBA guy licked his wounds and focused on the weaknesses.
Fast forward a few years. The fintech startup turns into a real business and has a successful exit. MBA guy invites the angel out to breakfast - not for a pitch but to thank him for his excellent skewering.
It was a good breakfast. They decide to go in as partners and buy a coffee roastery.
Through experimenting with roasting, operational enhancements, service management and marketing, they realized that their real-world execution skills were a massive competitive edge in an industry that is still more "art" than science.
Now they have a fully functioning coffee roasting company, with customers, revenue and a solid growth trend. All they need now is a sales leader who can help them turn this molehill into a mountain.
