If you have a crm that integrates into outlook, you could connect outlook to gmail and import contacts. Or you can export your gmail contacts as a csv and import them into whatever crm you want.

Can you explain more please? This is a very vague question

I'm really looking for a CRM that I could run on my own web host that would directly interface with and sync with my Gmail Contacts.  This way, if I hire a marketing person for instance, I can control access to my client base to some degree.

I'm not that familiar with open source crm, but google uses carddav for contacts so if you find one that supports carddav that should work.
