Who's been fired?

Some of us are natural sales people, some of us aren't. But even the naturals can fall into bad habits or hit too many instances of bad luck at once.

I have been fired for failing to meet quota?

I joined a startup as their first sales hire. I was to sell a complex tech to CTO’s and that was something that was very new to me.Β 

Did a decent job of getting meetings with some Fortune 1000 companies in the first 3 months, but the genius that the CEO was decided that this wasn’t good enough and fired me. The process he followed to fire me is a story for another day.Β 

Probably #4 is also a part of the reason for this firing lol

I haven't personally, but I've seen a lot of reps get dropped for missing too many quotas in a row. If you can't carry your weight it's not a good fit for them to stay.Β

Do we get any more info about this? I feel like there has to be a somewhat humorous story to go with this.Β Β
