In this episode of Startup Survival, we talk about two of the keys to being successful both personally and professionally: the ability to form deep, genuine connections; and how to talk to people honestly without offending them.
With me today is my friend who is also an informal mentor because I ask her for advice all the time, Amy Volas. Amy helps SaaS startups hire sales executives, and she has tons of experience forming connections quickly and giving people honest feedback to make sure her clients build the right teams.
In this episode, Amy and I discuss how you can grow your connections with others while being kind and honest. Make sure you tune in for her keys to startup success.
