Tweetable Quotes:

  • “We spend so much of our time trying to get hired. We talk about all the benefits and how great we are. We fail to do what I think is the very most important thing which is getting your competition fired.” – Josh Gurley
  • “I want a company that’s looking to grow.  Not want to hang here for a few years, and then maybe we’ll push the needle. No, I want people who push the needle every day because I push the needle every day.” – David Carothers
  • “Don’t ever present to anybody that can’t make the decision. Nobody can present better than you can. If you’re not talking to the gatekeeper and the gatekeepers get all the information, then you go present it to the gatekeeper and you don’t get the deal, don’t be surprised.” – Josh Gurley
