As employee #6 at BrandYourself.com, I’ve designed and implemented strategies that have helped fuel our growth to 80+ employees today and an infamous Shark Tank episode.
I believe many companies struggle because of the expectation that a great product will “sell itself” which leads them to underestimate the importance of sales and practical marketing to their business success.
I focus on helping high-potential companies succeed by building the repeatable systems and processes needed for sustainable revenue growth.
