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?
