Lessons from an entrepreneur: Start before you are ready

I attended an entrepreneurship summit recently, where I was asked to help select and distribute an interesting award. Attendees were asked to write down something inspiring they learned at the summit and the best entry would win.

In lead generation, cadence is paramount

When developing a lead generation program, sales managers and business owners often spend a lot of time crafting the perfect message and call script. They will analyze every word and debate nuances with the goal of making the greatest impact on prospects.
