Key Quotes


“Knowing who your message goes to is really important. it's really important to know that kind of information because you don't necessarily want to do it to the exclusion of everybody else, but you need to really serve that person and really know who you're trying to reach and again, that can change over time. You can refine it over time.” - Stacey Simms
