My guest Manny Medina is the CEO of Outreach.io, a sales automation firm that has grown from six employees to over 230 in its first three years. Born in Ecuador, Manny moved to the US for college which led him to work at two of the most prominent tech giants Amazon and Microsoft before becoming a CEO. Manny has been featured on CNBC, HuffPost, and Entrepreneur.com.
In this episode, I ask Manny about his journey from employee to entrepreneur, how he got started using automation to increase his first startup's sales productivity, and the challenges and lessons learned as a CEO of a fast-growing company.
