Never hire a Sales guy as your first employee

This is something which I learned by making the mistake – “Never hire a Sales guy as your first employee

For WorkMonk, we are always looking for sales people who had startup experience so we hired someone who was a sales guy when the platform was not there, now having a sales guy when you have nothing to show to the client or to sell is a very dangerous proposition as by trying to sell non functioning product/services, you can lose early adapters and by the time you will launch it, you may not have anyone to buy your product.

I realized this mistake after few weeks and we asked him to leave and we started focusing on the development and finished the platform in 3 months and now as we are ready, we are again finding more people to join our sales team.

you can look at WorkMonk Jobs page to get the details for our sales and dev openings.
