By Matt Heinz, President of Heinz Marketing
“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 really excited to feature Chad Burmeister, vice president of sales & marketing for ConnectAndSell. Chad is a fixture on the B2B circuit, regularly listed as one of the 25 most influential people in inside sales. He’s a regular blogger, speaker and influencer on all things sales.
