Quotes From the Show

“One of the fundamental aspects of success is true intellectual curiosity, and true empathy in sales, specifically.”

“The thing I learned from childhood was really ambition, and that was because I felt misunderstood for a lot of my life, and I felt like I needed to show the world something that was inside of me that I felt like hadn’t come out.”

“One of my mantras in my company is “I’m always going to be more invested in customer success than in sales.”
