Hanging My Shingle:
Starting My Own Business
By Scott Yelle
As many of you know, last year I decided to leave the corporate world and hang out my own shingle as an entrepreneur. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for some time now, and I am thrilled with my decision!
For this newsletter, I want to take some time to reflect and say thanks. I truly feel I have a blessed life, and many of you have contributed to that.
I want to start by thanking my employers over the last 25 years! I’ve worked for some outstanding companies that provided me numerous opportunities to grow and learn. But it is really the people I encountered along the way that made the journey so amazing! I have been very fortunate to have worked alongside many great individuals. I am thankful for them because they challenged me to grow – both personally and professionally. They were open to my coaching and ideas to help them improve, and without them, many of the opportunities I have had over the course of my career would not have been possible. I am the leader I am today because of those people and the interactions we had! Thank you.
I have joined the perfect company, Sales Xceleration, which has proven there is a need for the services I provide – in any industry. We provide turnkey selling solutions for small to mid-size businesses that want to launch or expand their sales operations, while delivering predictable and sustainable sales performance improvement. I have used these solutions to help current clients and want to help more small businesses. I now have a team of resources to help and support me on this adventure called entrepreneurship! It’s a great fit for me and I am thankful!
Here is the type of client I work with:
-Companies experiencing stagnant or declining sales
-Companies that want to take their sales organization to the next level
-Companies with owners wearing "multiple hats," who need to dellegate out sales leadership and responsibility
-Companies with owners who realize they lack the experience to manage the sales team as their company grows
I also want to thank my family for supporting me through this change. As you can imagine, it’s a big decision and affects all of us! Scary and exciting – all at the same time! I am blessed to have them by my side with their support!
Again, thank you to so many who have helped me along the way. I do appreciate the referrals and everyone's support! If we haven’t spoken recently, check out my website, or give me a call at 860-573-8782, and let’s chat!
