Key Takeaways:

“It’s not really helpful for me or for any of the listeners out there for you to say, ‘Hey, when you want to identify pricing, just ask your market or your customers how much they’re willing to pay’. Because they’re going to give you numbers that are all over the place. And at the end of the day, they’re all correct in the way that they think.” – Peter Zotto

“I think if we were thinking about value, it’s really what are you willing to pay.”  Mark Stiving
