The goal of Uncharted and Eclectic is to allow a space for some of the most brilliant individuals in the business to tell their stories. I’ve found that many of these great people got where they are by diving into the unknowns, or the uncharted. And they often ventured in not so conventional (often eclectic) ways.

    This week’s episode features Paige Robinson, founder of Will Reed. Will Reed is a recruiting firm that partners with innovative tech companies and VC-backed startups to scale sales organizations and actualize growth strategies. In other words, they hire the best people to help the best people find the best jobs.

    Paige's story is one of perspective, a perspective that I hope will provide encouragement to many listening. In this episode, you will hear Paige talk about balancing running a business while being a mom to three kids under the age of three. Her advice to folks looking to hire their first sales hires, and you will also hear about Robby's recent experience moving over to full time to build AgentSync, and why we  believe in the importance of story telling.  Paige also talks about her childhood, being supported by loving parents and siblings, and when entrepreneurship became a part of her journey.
