Industry Experience



1 Advisory Board Membership
January 01, 2020
We're on a mission to help sales and revenue teams understand how customers use their products. Businesses have more data than ever about how customers are using their products, but that information rarely makes it to the teams that need it. We built HeadsUp because understanding users shouldn't be this hard. We're working towards a world where data analytics isn't a specialized function, but a resource that's available to every team.

Evolving Sales Kick-Offs into Shared Kick-Offs with Marketing & Customer Success
September 19, 2019
When I started my career on the brink of the new millennium, Customer Success really didn’t exist - at least as a career path. Today, Customer Success is not only the 5th fastest growing profession according to LinkedIn, but also where company expansion revenue is being generated at a faster pace.

Customer Experience isn’t just Tech Jargon.
August 06, 2020
Last week, my partner, Jason, and I celebrated our third year of owning a vacation rental, Sonoma Creek Getaway. Little did we know the experience would be a lesson in customer experience, remodeling, city bureaucracy, and surviving fires, both the 2019 Sonoma fires and the most frightening one for me, the 2017’s Tubb’s fire that we managed to escape, barely. I will write about the escape after we get through the 2020 fire season...don’t want to jinx anything after COVID!

My Heart is Pounding in my Neck
July 28, 2020
"I feel like my heart is pounding in my neck. I am so stressed out." Words confessed by a woman I hired years ago and who is now a dear friend. The statement was so profound and suffocating, that I kept thinking back to what her words expressed. A debilitating feeling of losing control is common for women I coach and perhaps likely for men too.

Surviving Covid-19: 7 books, 2 podcasts & 1 periodical later.
July 21, 2020
There’s no doubt Covid-19 has transformed how people are spending their time. From what I have heard, many are busy binging on Netflix, others have developed an obsession with the news; while many are busy taking up new and old hobbies or a combination of all of the above. Of course, for the suddenly unemployed, finding a job has been a nerve-racking focus. For me, it’s been more miles riding on my bike and feet hiking, more time with my children and partner...and more time to escape to my books.

Customer Experience: 3 Takeaways from Refresh19
September 06, 2019
It didn't feel like a big sales pitch. Often so many conferences do. The event was packed with great content but maintained a casual vibe. It was held at the Aria in Las Vegas and integrated elements of Indian and America cultures - Indian food at lunch, yoga to unwind, BollyX to embrace a big night of golfing and dancing, and Bollywood dancers at the Golf range created a memorable experience.

Creating Career Paths in Customer Success
January 17, 2019
The Customer Success Association (CSA) continues to grow its resource library. I recently contributed a piece on 'Career Pathing in CS' - it doesn't have to be linear. In my 10+ years of on the ground CS experience and now as an executive coach, I know first hand there are so many opportunities to learn and grow in the profession. As a team leader, you need to enable CSMs to grow with the company or leave. Turnover is high - esp in the Bay Area. Mikael Blaisdell includes some stats on turnover in the profession from his research as well in this piece. How are you keeping your CS teams engaged?
