We're excited to have youso we're going to put one question to you today, and that question is, in your opinion, what's the number... key to professional success and why? I believe that the key to success for tech sales professional is drive andperseverance. And the reason that I believe that is because, throughout all thedifferent sales people that I've worked with, both as an individual contributor and formany years as a leader, the attributes that separate the CB performers from thea rock star sales reps is work ethic, it's drive, it's the determination tobe successful and it can man it's manifest itself in several different ways.You know, it can manifest itself with simply, you know, putting anextra time making extra calls. It can manifest self in the team format,with reps taking the extra effort to be a team lead to helping their peersor help ramp junior reps as they come...

...on board, or help a repwho's transitioning from str to say, a junior, a euro. You know, sales leaders look for the reps who have that extra gear, that extrabit of gasoline in the tank, that are going to, you know,come hell or high water, they're going to make it happen, and soI've looked for it. I believe that it's helped me get to where Iam as a professional and, of course, when I'm hiring reps, when I'mlooking to promote reps, I look for that. You know that theindividuals who have that extra drive, determination, you know, the ones that arewilling to put in the time no matter what. You know earlier inthe week you mentioned that that was one of the light bulbs that went offin your head when you saw of the sales reps that I pre oh andnot. You know, originally big dough. Is Work Ethic something that you cancreate? Is it something that's just...

...intrinsic, or do you think youcan develop work ethic if you don't have it originally, or drive or motivation? I do think you can develop it and I think it's a part ofthat development comes with the culture of your company and of your sales team.It's probably easier to develop that culture with individuals who have that that extra year, that drive, but I absolutely think that work ethic can drive, canbe fostered by a sales team's culture. There's there's no question. Awesome,Mike. Thanks so much for being our guest on the show this week.If folks want to reach out to you and get in touch, what's thebest way?
