But what about the people who really want to get into sales but have none of these required experiences? Are we just gonna leave them behind?

Tom: “TrainYo takes underserved undervalued people that normally get overlooked or out of the UK or US market now that would love to break into the SDR role and find out how to do it correctly and get the skills they need to be successful in it.
Collin: “There's so many hidden gems of people that would do well.”
Tom: “We had another one Robert, who had never done sales in his entire life, Robert is and then he came through the program just recently, and within three days of finishing the program had secured himself a job.”
Tom: “Fight to get in, right, don't give up. It's not going to be easy. It is going to be hard. I'm not going to lie. This sounds all great butterflies, but you're gonna get rejected. You do have to go through quite a few interviews to get these candidates dropped somewhere.”
