In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk to Jon Ferrera, a technology entrepreneur who pioneered the first CRM software back when computers were a commodity that weren’t in every household.
Tired of using day planners and forecasting on spreadsheets, he quit his job at age 29 and started GoldMine Software. He was able to sell that company and retire at age 40 to stay home and raise 3 kids.
Being home gave him the chance to see how social media was going to change the marketing world, so in the early 2000s he saw an opportunity to recreate what he started with GoldMine and take it to the next level, the cloud, and he created Nimble.
Jon delves into his journey from GoldMine to Nimble, and how he was able to sell CRM software to other’s that didn’t know they even needed it, and he did so by going after the influencers. He was able to build GoldMine to a 70 million dollar a year company without ever taking a dime of capital or venture and no bank loans!
Plus he delves into:
- How to manage relationships at scale with the tools you have today.
- How to earn intimacy and trust with contacts.
- And what are the 5 “E"s, 3 "P"s, and 5 "F"s?
