From Account Exec to C.E.O.?

I have studied some people's LinkedIn profiles and noticed there was a trend, a trajectory into some place.


It appears to me that some of the people who have built successful startups, had humble beginnings in Account Executive and Account Management.


Does anyone have plans to build their own business? Whether it's a Fortune 500/1,000 or just doing a Solopreneur type gig?


The fact that you have SDR/AE/SE/CSM experience means that you would be in the right path to owning your own business/becoming an entrepreneur. Understanding business models, sales cycle, cold messaging/calling, pitching, overcoming objections, understanding pain points, negotiating with contracts, etc.


What are your thoughts?

Originally met with this prospect over a year and a half ago... they were new to the market and there was a lot of haggling and back and forth. Finally, the president said we'd move forward and connect...
Say congrats!
