Ep.159: Why You Don’t Need a VP of Sales. Yet. A Conversation with Amy Volas.

By Scott Sambucci | June 9, 2023

Amy is an enterprise sales fanatic and startup junkie with over 20 years and $100M+ worth of deals closed. She’s experienced how startups too often short-circuit their potential (and their salespeople’s) by missing the mark on one very important thing: recruiting. This is where Amy and ATP come in! Amy is well known on LinkedIn and on the sales speaker circuit, hosting and Co-Founding the very popular Thursday Night Sales, the #1 weekly Virtual Sales Happy Hour.

Prior to Avenue Talent Partners , Amy was the Director of National Accounts at ZipRecruiter, Enterprise Sales Director at Glid, and the Senior Executive Account Director at Indeed.com.

Some of the topics that we covered are:

  • Timing of Sales Personnel Hiring
  • Establishing a Solid Sales Foundation
  • Challenges Faced by Founders
  • Building a Supportive Startup Community
