Fun way to learn from successful people
I found the conversations to be engaging and very useful. There are a lot little things you can learn from a conversation that you can’t from books, which is why I love this format. Exactly what I’m looking for as I want to learn from successful SaaS marketers.
Fantastic growth marketing know how
Really like the episode with David Cancel. Excited to hear more of season 1!!
Seriously solid content
I love that these are all high-caliber entrepreneurs who's advice comes from being in the trenches building their startup. Personally, my favorite episode was with David Cancel from Drift on the counter intuitive philophies they have at growing a business. I know he used to be on the HubSpot team, and you can see a lot of similarities between their cultures.
