  • “It’s not something you can tell someone that you’re honest, you have to show it.”
  • “CRM has to be a value add for the frontline sales rep. And for the frontline sales manager, if CRM is a task, you know, I’ve had places where you had to put a calendar entry to update your CRM once a week. If that’s the case, then you might as well throw it away, because it’s not serving the purpose.” 
  • “The entire business is sales. And if we aren’t able to deliver results, you know, with accuracy in a predictable manner, it affects the entire business. And so I always want to include those other groups into the sales process”
