  6. What role do leaders and executives play in building an inbound organization?
  7. Why is inbound about everyone in the organization and not just the marketing team?
  8. In a lot of manufacturing businesses, marketing tasks are either done by just one person, rolled into sales, or done by the ceo/founder. What advice do you have for these kind of folks who are already swamped with things to do?
