How to Set Expectations for Consistent Feedback between the Business Development Rep and the Sales Rep throughout their Working Relationship 

Posted by Ali Powell on Aug 12, 2015 9:59:52 AM

I went to a course today here at HubSpot on how to deliver effective feedback. At HubSpot we offer trainings to our employees. I have started taking the management training courses because I want to make sure I have the skills to help my new BDR when she gets on the floor next month.  I want to make sure that I can use these trainings as a starting point for my relationship with her when she gets on the sales floor with me.

Why Product Managers and Sales Reps Need to Work Better Together for Product Development Needs 

Posted by Ali Powell on Jul 23, 2015 4:45:56 PM

As a sales rep selling a SaaS product I have noticed myself picking up on trends in the market. I have noticed that I am the eyes to what the market wants and needs in our product. There are plenty of ways for companies to easily track what features, tools, etc need updating or creating by using support tickets but there is no good way for product and sales to work well together that I know of. (If you know of one and are a sales rep or someone working on a product team somewhere please comment on what you use).

Tips for Finding Out What You Are Supposed to be Doing in Life - How to Notice Your "SPARK"

Posted by Ali Powell on May 20, 2015 9:00:00 PM

I have always thought that I was meant for something bigger. I have always thought that I was meant for something more. But, what is more? What is better? I still don't know and that is the dilemma that I face. I think many people (of all ages) face this as well. 

What am I supposed to be doing in life?

There is a new kind of leadership brewing for millennial women at work and it's not aspiring to the c-suite

Posted by Ali Powell on Apr 3, 2015 10:55:28 AM

Going through my morning ritual of reading The BroadSheet today I found an article about how more and more women are not hoping or looking to become part of the C suite. @kayelbee, thank you for writing this article today.
