History

The vision for BlueZone Systems began August 2016.  In our careers, we both had experienced a variety of companies, leaders, cultures, company missions, and purpose.  

 

Danielle, over her career, had extensive background successfully leading and restructuring companies in a variety of industries and financial and economic conditions.  These experiences cultivated in her a passion and expertise for building workplaces with strong cultures of empowerment, respect, and fun, and creating company organization and strategy that yield strong financial returns.  She’d experienced the seemingly miraculous results that occur when teams are shown respect and empowered, expectations are clear and well defined, and a business plan is well structured and strategically delivered.

 

So, we began to discuss the idea of a company that took the best of what we’d each experienced and combined that with many of our own ideas to create the company we’d always wanted to work for.  After much soul searching we decided it was the right time to start the journey to create that company - one that is fun, honors and respects employees, customers, and gives back to the community, with a vision to make a difference beyond just the bottom line, and a company with a solid business strategy that is financially strong, sustainable, and profitable.   

With Rob's extensive background in sales leadership and sports coaching he’d experienced first hand the characteristics and behaviors that made some people successful and caused others to struggle.  He recognized that ultimately those seeing consistent, sustained success had one thing in common - a plan and the determination and inspiration to follow it.   Setting goals and developing a specific plan that aligns to that goal attainment had a tremendous effect on focus, accountability, inspiration, confidence, and ultimately success.  

 

So began the mission - to help sales teams become more successful than they’ve ever been, to create a product that would help sales teams not just increase sales but ensure that each and every user had that path to confidence, inspiration, and the opportunity to feel successful everyday. This product could not only help sales reps become successful financially and professionally, but could also serve as a catalyst to remove the sense of fear that many sales people live with daily (when they aren't at the top of the leaderboard), and replace that fear with a sense of control over their destiny, clarity, a roadmap to achieve their goals, and ultimately a shift from the fairly typical mindset of fear and scarcity to one of trust and abundance - what we like to refer to as “Living Your Sales Life in the BlueZone”.

From there... what started as a dream became a reality at our kitchen table in 2019, and thus began an incredible adventure that has brought together old friends, new friends, incredible talent, generous investors, trusted advisors, and more …. all to bring this vision of BlueZone Systems to life...  The future is yet to be written and we hope you'll join us for the next chapter and experience living your sales life in the BlueZone!
