“While RevOps is a partnership with engineering, we’ve gotta have our own resources to build these great customer experiences, and AI is going to be at the heart of these experiences within weeks not years.”
“I think we’re so leveraged, we’re having so many great conversations, and rather than take AI and try to optimize how we work today, my hope is to really transform it completely.”
“Transitioning from changing from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset.”
“There’s no value in keeping these things you know a secret, the value is in sharing them with other people.”
