Job Description

Results and action-oriented Coach Needed - Selling & Prospecting / Time Management / Productivity / Organization - ideally USA/EU/Latin America - Compensation negotiable

[the budget is cumulative - over months]

I'm looking for someone with a talent for helping people to be productive in selling / business development . I need help with focus, organization and personal time management and productivity. My goal is to identify and reach 50 contacts in the next 4 weeks. Please answer the questions below.

Me: Cofounder of startup company that develops and commericalizes technology. Overeducated, habitually disorganized, abstract and a lousy employee. I need to focus and act, rather than think. .

You: You must be motivated, smart, professional, persuasive, diplomatic and absolutely fluent in English, familiar with Western-ish culture and ideally familiar with sales and business development. If you have any experience in coaching, mentoring or counseling, sales management , sales, or business development that would also be a plus (if it makes you more effective)

Role Description: Daily call to decide on tactics and goals for reaching out to potential new customers. Review of work accomplished. This could take from 10-20 minutes per day.

Nature of role: Phone calls at least daily, to keep me on the ball and help me plan my time and my work. I just started using Insightly, which is CRM for Google Apps, and want to leverage that to the utmost. It is a very big plus if you have outside sales or business development experience and can coach me how to do prospecting for clients. It is also a big plus if you are familiar with using a CRM system.

Getting started:
We don't know if we can work together. This sort of thing does require a certain amount of fit. Tell me about your experience and what you can help with (based on the description above)

I propose starting with a couple of 10-15 minute calls (maybe longer) and seeing how it goes. We are a struggling startup, so this will not make you rich. However, compensation will be reasonable and you will have the satisfaction of helping me support my charming daughter and less-charming ex-wife. Make me an offer ($) - probably by the week for one call per day. It is possible that you may be able to assist with research and targeting for this business development effort.

Questions:
1. If you were leading the call, what would be the agenda
2. Tell me about your experience with coaching or sales management / business development.
