Tips from an Expert on Hustling Your Way into the Startup Scene

By April 3, 2013

Follow me on:

I came across Mike Fishbein while surfing the educational destination Skillshare. His class had an irresistable name --  "How to Hustle Your Way to a Non-Technical Job at a Startup."

I know that I've personally learned a ton about the dos and don'ts of running a business via my experience in tech startups, but seeing as how Mike trains and mentors aspiring startup employees, I was curious to find out whether he thought working in a startup was a valuable prerequisite to starting your own business.

"Start-ups are not for people who need structure and can't tolerate uncertainty. For people who like to hustle and are truly passionate about entrepreneurship, it's a dream," he explains.

In my interview with Mike, you'll learn why:

  • Sales roles are perfect for entrepreneurial startup job candidates
  • How mentors can open valuable doors
  • How startups and corporate jobs differ

I'd love to hear from you in the comments -- have you ever worked in a startup?
