The first chapter of Marc Benioff’s book says Have a Big Dream.
I was reminded of it when I read this blog post yesterday commemorating salesforce.com’s 14th birthday.
Marc wanted to change the software industry for good from day 1 of salesforce.com. He wanted to end the old way of software and usher in cloud computing. It’s been that guiding light that’s brought their business to be valued at over $22 Billion today.
At SalesLoft, we’re also on a mission. We want to change the reputation of the sales professional and enable a higher level of sincerity and empathy into B2B transactions. This mission helps us stay focused on the big picture and prepares for many years of building the business.
I love hearing stories like that of salesforce.com. Which company missions inspire you?
