KEY LESSONS & QUOTES

  • “You don't need to wait for all of your partnership, create a series of assumptions of who is my target buyer, and do some customer discovery then validate whether that is a repeat business model” [28:59]
  • “As the pilot is starting, what does success look like for you? And if you hit it, what happens next? So you're actually designing for the pilot to be successful and designing for your next sales activation model in place because as soon as you have a data point, not that you've achieved it, but that you're tracking to achieve it.” [32:28]
  • “Often entrepreneurs will get into the room with someone, they will speak so clearly about their mission, passionately about their product or service, eloquently about their organization and they'll walk out not understanding the actual needs of the person that they were just talking to.” [36:57]
