Hi! I’m Mary Grothe. I am a Christ-follower, wife, mother, keynote speaker, CEO, published author, and former #1 B2B MidMarket SaaS Sales Rep for a Fortune 1000 Payroll & HR Company. You can read more of my personal story and how my upbringing shaped my life in this blog.
At 22, I 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. I rapidly found success by listening to my clients and always solving their needs; putting their agenda before mine. Even when my sales approach was the direct inverse of corporate, I knew in my heart what was right, and I did the job with integrity and grit - driving results for both me and my clients.
With multiple #1 finishes and millions in revenue sold, I left in 2011 to become a business strategist for entrepreneurs and founded Butterfly Creative, LLC. My vision expanded into youth entrepreneurship education and I eventually went back to the Payroll/HR company serving larger, more complex companies in 2014. I left in 2017 after two Top 25 and one Top 10 finish and millions more sold. I returned as CEO to my firm, Butterfly Creative LLC, rebranded as Sales BQ® from 2017-2020.
In December 2020, we split into two brands to better serve our distinct audiences.
The revenue-scaling work we do for CEOs moved to a new brand named House of Revenue™.
Sales BQ® continues to host our Quota Crusher™ Podcast, Free Sales Training Room, and Blog with new content released each week.
At House of Revenue™, we build unshakeable revenue foundations set for scale by focusing on all aspects of the revenue engine — marketing, sales, customer success, and RevOps. We solve CEOs revenue problems holistically by using targeted automation to build inbound marketing funnels full of qualified leads and training sales reps to close. From there, we enhance their overall client experience with a strong focus on customer success, revenue expansion, referrals, and renewals.
House of Revenue™ currently leads the marketing, sales, and customer success departments for 10 companies nationwide. In the past year, we have helped more than 20 second-stage growth companies, on average, double their MRR within 10 months. This has resulted in an average ROI of 1,454% with average annual revenue growth eclipsing $3.2 million.
But there’s so much more to me.
For years, I felt there were two distinct, separate sides to me. "Corporate" Mary and "Believer" Mary. Today, I am living my best life as one person, encouraging others to do the same.
Welcome to my journey as I prove that a young, Jesus-loving wife and mother can also be a top-ranking CEO in the marketplace.
