Heather Ann Havenwood, is a serial entrepreneur, and is regarded as a top authority on digital marketing, sales coaching, and online publishing business strategies. Heather Ann has been named Top 50 Must Follow Women Entrepreneurs for 2017 by Huffington Post. She is also called Chief Sexy Boss™ (from her Amazon BEST SELLER book Sexy Boss™, How Female Entrepreneurship is Changing the Rule Book and Beating the Big Boys).

You must understand human behavior and be able to get into their minds. [25:34] Heather specializes in helping businesses understand the ups and down of the marketplace. She also is a master at product launching, and helping to get people to show up to reality (having people complete the purchase). [28:12] Tamara believes that the marathon really begins with the sales process. Marketing is not sales. A direct response will move the consumer through the product to purchasing.
