Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. Today’s tip comes from Amy Volas. Amy is a sales fanatic turned entrepreneur, she was bitten by the startup bug and can’t imagine spending her time anywhere else. She created Avenue Talent Partners to help with the tremendous task of growing startups through one of their most valuable assets—salespeople. Here she is with some advice if you’re considering a change:
Amy Volas: So the question is, how should I evaluate whether a new sales job or opportunity is right for me? I think it starts with thinking about what you’re doing today and what you’ve really liked, what you haven’t liked so much. Thinking back in the past and understanding anything that comes your way, in my honest opinion, should be equal or greater than what you’re doing today. And so if you understand all of those elements and then you evaluate what comes your way in earnest from the standpoint of it’s going to help me do better things and not just for the money, because whenever I’ve gone just for the money, it’s never worked out so well. And that’s the case for many, many people that I speak with. So what does that really look like? And understanding that and knowing that, and then holding the opportunities that come your way accountable to that helps you understand whether it’s the right time to make a move and it’s the right opportunity.
