By Matt Heinz, President of Heinz Marketing

“How I Work” is one of my favorite recurring features in Inc Magazine as well as Lifehacker’s This Is How I Work Series.  A few years ago we started our own!

We feature a new B2B sales, marketing or business leader every Thursday, answering “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 Jeremiah Sarkett, certified partner manager for Infusionsoft.  A multi-time President’s Club member, “Shark” (as his peers call him) has spent the past 15 years in a variety of sales & marketing leadership roles.  He also volunteers at the Humane Society in his free time.  Here, in his own words, is how he gets stuff done.
