    Navigating Financing & Startups: Mary Grothe

    Navigating Financing & Startups: Mary Grothe

    At 22, Mary started with a Fortune 1000 Payroll/HR company at just $13/hour in an admin role, but quickly acquired the skills and training required to advance into mid-market sales. She rapidly found success by listening to clients and always solving their needs; putting their agenda before her own. Even when Mary's sales approach was the direct inverse of corporate, she knew in her heart what was right, and did the job with integrity and grit - driving results for both herself and her clients.

    In 2011, she left to become a business strategist for entrepreneurs and founded Butterfly Creative, LLC. Her vision expanded into youth entrepreneurship education and she eventually went back to the Payroll/HR company serving larger, more complex companies in 2014. Mary left in 2017 after two Top 25 and one Top 10 finish and millions more sold. She returned as CEO to her firm, Butterfly Creative LLC, rebranded as Sales BQ® from 2017-2020.

    In 2020, the company split into two brands to better serve their distinct audiences. The revenue-scaling work they did for CEOs moved to a new brand named House of Revenue™, found at https://www.houseofrevenue.com/. At House of Revenue™, they build unshakeable revenue foundations set for scale by focusing on all aspects of the revenue engine — marketing, sales, customer success, and RevOps. They solve your revenue problems holistically by using targeted automation to build inbound marketing funnels full of qualified leads and training sales reps to close. From there, they enhance your overall client experience with a strong focus on customer success, revenue expansion, referrals, and renewals.
