Her latest book, Predictable Prospecting, is the result of the thesis of page 42. She spent five years developing this book by working with clients in the field to consolidate and fine-tune, grow the formula, scientifically focus to get benchmark of conversion rates and ratios that will add up to a predictable revenue framework.And then honing in on specific pieces, buckets, and components to put this channel in as part of a mutli-channel marketing effort to generate revenue in targeted accounts with the highest likelihood of closing with the highest revenue potential.
Blending the knowledge of marketing, flipping it sideways and pulling out the pieces that will resonate with those at the top of funnel - this is one stream - OUTREACH for large accounts that close quickly.

- found solution
- found where to get the solution
How do we figure out where they are, how do we start the conversation and how do we move them along?
