Question: “Ted, what do you do when there’s a new project you want to start or opportunity you have a chance to hop on, but it’s the middle of the year and the budget is set?”
For the answer, let me defer to my friend and Mentor Gene Landrum, a man who brought three different startups to $100 million – one of which you’ve probably heard of, maybe even spent a birthday or two in.
Gene shared some insight with me that I’ve got to share with you today. So strap in and get ready for a powerful dose of business wisdom!
I get this one all the time: What’s more important, sales or marketing? Today, let me share with you the only way to frame that question.
As part of the discussion, we’ll talk about the first two of the only three roles in ANY business: Do you make, sell, or serve?
Strap in tight, cuz (as usual) this topic gets me hoppin’ mad!!
