It's kind of like high school- who likes whom; who's doing what to get whose attention; whose parents are allowing whom to do what and when with each other. Except no curfews and everyone wanted the geeks.
Beautiful, Bountiful 1997. Hateful, Ugly 1998. - In Which Telalink Hits $1 Million in Sales and There Was Much Rejoicing Until....
Telalink was on its way to hitting $1 million in sales that fall. To celebrate, I called a surprise meeting one evening, announced that we had officially become a $1 million company and invited everyone for dinner at Amerigo's by way of the longest stretch limousine that I could find in Nashville. The million dollar sales mark was such a landmark, and yet, we felt that we were just at the beginning. It was hard to look beyond Nashville with all of the opportunities in front of us.
Meet a few members of the Telalink Sales team from the 90's. Enough stories for a television series.
