Who am I?
Hello! My name is Alejandro Sanchez and I am the founder and Chief Experience Officer behind Journyfy. After helping numerous people in their professional career journey and going through several career changes with lots of ups and downs, I've learned how hard finding an impactful, challenging, and fulfilling path is. I've experienced firsthand how cumbersome and unintuitive the job search process is; have started several companies and learned from failures more than from successes; have worked and led the creation and growth of successful customer success and partnership programs at several B2B SaaS companies; and have worked at tech startups in software that convince themselves they are customer centric when they are product, engineering or sales focused. My passion is to build lasting and meaningful human relations and coach people toward professional achievement.
On a personal note, I am from Colombia, a beautiful and diverse country located in the northern part of South America. And while I've lived in the US for almost 15 years and consider this my country and love it, I carry with me that Latino, positive, and people centric energy instilled from my birthplace. Now, my home is in North Carolina where I live with my wife and two boys with whom I enjoy traveling, hiking, and camping. I play a few musical instruments and love to explore that creative side once in a while as well.
For SaaS entrepreneurs, whether they are start-ups or scale-ups, I can help you either develop and structure or focus and grow a partner program as well as train your partnership and non-partnerships team around the importance of partnerships. I can also go to the tactical level and talk about tools, frameworks, and playbooks to better drive success with partners. I have experience working directly in B2B SaaS as a customer success leader as well as a partnerships leader and have started many partnership programs.
What can you expect from me?
I'll be the first to tell you that I am no expert. There are many things about the topics of individual, professional, and organizational journey exploration that I still have to learn. So I don't claim to know it all and therefore my goal is not to come and solve all your problems. Rather, I have a few tools, experiences and skills as well as a very positive and inquisitive attitude, that can help you open your eyes and identify what's missing to get to where you want.
I will be honest with you, direct, very transparent and engaged. I will focus first on you and your needs. And I will go as deep as I can to uncover any potential barriers and challenges stopping you from accomplishing your goals. I'll treat you professionally and will deliver on any commitments and promises I make.
