Last week I had the chance to participate in the Pioneers Festival in Vienna. I have to say it made an impression. I got in contact with many amazing Start-ups, but most importantly, I met great people.
All these people put themselves out-there to take their vision to reality, by having passion about their concepts, MVPs or products. They have something that binds them together more than anything else: the faith that they can offer to their markets the best products along with the best experience possible.
For a sales professional like myself, it was inspiring. I truly believe, the sales world could transform fundamentally if it just took a look at how all these entrepreneurs are doing it. Yes, it’s true, the Start-up world desperately needs sales (good strategies, simple, effective and adaptable processes, etc.). But all these pioneers and innovators have a strong WILL to grow and learn and perfect their visions.
Will outweighs Skill
So lets all take a page from entrepreneurship 101 manual:
- Always have faith and passion in yourself and in what you do.
- Always strive to offer to people the best experiences along side great products.
- Always try to be true to yourself and never stop innovating
This is what I believe in, and what the Pioneers Festival experience confirmed: Will is the choice everyone should make!
