Have a Big Dream

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.┬áThis 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?

  1. Excellent mission statement. Inspires me to come up with one that sticks for AccelerEyes. We’ve tried to come up with some in the past, but have never found one that sticks.
