Sales is one of your most important tasks as a business owner. But hiring for sales can be a nightmare.

On this week’s episode, we talk with Jason Vance, a former web design freelancer who’s building his next company in marketing.

Jason stumbled on a creative idea that led him to pivot and start a marketing agency late last year.

Now, just 9 months later, he’s got 9 employees and a whole lot of work that needs to get done.

But hiring the right salespeople is something Jason just hasn't figured out yet.

So toward the end of this episode, we give a masterclass in hiring salespeople without all the headache.
