“How I Work” is one of my favorite recurring features in Inc Magazine as well as via Lifehacker’s This Is How I Work Series, and recently several sales experts (including Anthony Iannarino, Dave Brock and Trish Bertuzzi) participated as well.
Periodically moving forward, we will feature a new B2B sales, marketing or business leader here answering what have become the standard “How I Work” questions. You can catch up on everyone we’ve featured thus far in the “How I Work” series here.
This week I’m excited to feature Frances McCutchon, director of marketing for PFL. Frances is a certified scrum master, speaks four languages, has been a volunteer homework helper for the Seattle Public Library, and is a proud Texas Longhorn graduate.
Suffice it to say, Frances gets stuff done. Here in her own words is how she does it:
