Tweetable Moments:

04:30 – “When it comes to sales, suddenly, everybody is becoming a specialist. They have their own opinions. They watched The Wolf of Wall Street or whatever.”

08:46 – “What we have found is that when companies spend anywhere between 5000 USD and above, they want to talk to somebody. If they're spending about $20,000, they need a constant person that they can always go back to and talk to consistently.”
