Tweetable Quotes:

  • “You’ve got to start on page one, you can’t jump in to chapter 2 or chapter 10 and expect that you understand what’s going on. Start with the smallest thing possible, whatever that is, if it’s a new lead automation, or if it’s your onboarding automation, figure out the one thing that can happen, it doesn’t have to be perfect to start with, find the things that need to happen every single time.” – Patrick McBride
  • “Every client that says yes to our agency, doesn’t matter the policy doesn’t matter the type. If they say yes to our agency for us to represent them in any way, shape, or form, there’s a certain level of trust, and they’ve got that trust right there, we now have to deliver and continue with a consistent level of validation of our effort to that client.” – Patrick McBride
