My guest on this episode is Michael Sacca, host of the business podcast, Rocketship.fm, and Head of Partnerships at Crew. Among the many topics Michael and I discuss are how sales professionals can succeed and thrive in a world where sales teams are at risk of being engineered out of the selling process; and, how the personal touch in sales can influence the emotional element of decision-making and become the differentiator that helps you close the deal.

[13:50] How is the salesforce structured at Crew?
