WHAT IT TAKES TO JOIN OUR TEAM
We believe in 3 key traits that create the foundation for success in all sales roles within our team:
- The barber shop industry is complex and constantly changing. We are looking for folks that are not only open to being coached to success, but are able to take feedback and implement it quickly. The attitude of “feedback is a gift” goes a long way!
- Work Ethic
- We are big believers in ‘‘talent is overrated”. Are you familiar with Malcolm Gladwell's “10,000-hour rule"? He asserted that the key to achieving true expertise in any skill is simply a matter of practicing, albeit in the correct way, for at least 10,000 hours. That's a lot of hours. Do you have the hunger and desire to get to them quicker than anyone else? Awesome, so do we.
- Sales is full of setbacks and there will be more deals that don’t go your way than close. Feeling comfortable failing and understanding that “failure is a stepping stone on the path to success” is what is needed to be successful in any sales role, especially sales in a startup environment. We are constantly learning from mistakes, iterating on processes and redefining the 'how'. We are looking for positive people to add to our team, who believe that it isn’t success that leads to happiness, it’s happiness that leads to success.
Those are our top 3. They are the absolute requirements. Still with us? Read on...
