    Another great episode, guys. Love the practical info and the lack of hype!

    Another home run guys. Have listened to this 2 times already, have downloaded the sketched framework, and have a project going on right now I can use this in. Its a webinar, but the framework you’ve provided will still fit nicely even though its not a live event.

    yes I know Mario and I was in fact at the the event you are talking about last year in San Diego. And yup – I was one of the guys out in the foyer, bar, etc hanging with my marketing buddies. From my perspective it was an awesome memorable event for a networking perspective as I flew from NZ to attend.

    Can’t wait to implement this framework in our current project as we have 2000 new customers to take care of, and this will help a bunch!!
