“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 thrilled to feature Joe Martino, Sr Director Global Sales & Business Development Appuri. Joe is a proven, high energy sales leader having honed his skills for years at Concur, IKON Office Solutions and more. He is passionate about sales, customer experience and coaching up-and-coming sales professionals.
Here, in his own words, is how he gets stuff done.

Anything else you want to add? Modern Tech is a trip. My goal is to always adopt new so I myself don’t go old. Aging myself but to paraphrase my pal Ferris Bueller from 1986: “Tech moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”
