Kickfire update

A Kickfire competitor tipped me off that he got 3 Kickfire salesmen’s resumes in 24 hours. I ran this by Kickfire CEO Bruce Armstrong, who confirmed that Kickfire has had a layoff, but gave me no further details.

Bruce also told me that Kickfire is now up to 10 paying customers, and that there are repeat deals.
