Don’t get wasted at sales kick-off, & Coté needs to stop being so pessimistic

February 15th, 2018 · 57 mins 27 secs

About this Episode

It’s our annual surviving sales kick-off show. There’s some exciting developments in Coté’s life on the stage and trenchant tips from Matt and Brandon (spoiler: don’t get wasted!). We also discuss the odd trend of kubernetes now actually not being for mere mortals and then Coté complains about writing talk submissions for CFPs.

Hard-hustle & shameless self-promotion
