“The Sales Learning Curve is strategic, NOT tactical! Opening a new Go-To-Market requires innovation – founders should never trust anyone else to do it for them!”

“It’s on the startup to choose their entry market in a thoughtful way, not just extrapolate from a small dataset of prospects. Pick the customers you want and go get them.”
