Quotes from Ross

  • "Playing-to-win means you need a plan to win: A strategy to take your practice where few other practices go."
  • "Offering amazing outcomes won’t matter much if you don’t have any clients!"
  • "Probably the most common mistake architects make in sales and marketing – whether on their website, promotional material or in submissions – is to focus on what they do."
