Key Lessons from the Episode

The most important things to take away


Curiosity and a willingness to explore new ideas can lead to successful businesses.

"It was just curiosity, you know, and see, OK, let's build this. See how it's going to work."

Focusing on a specific platform or niche can lead to better results than trying to cater to everyone.

"We're trying to serve people who are trying to start their brand... We had all these people who were just starting to grow and then they just fail and or just stop."

Marketing is essential for a good product to succeed, as it can be useless without users and exposure.

"Even if it's a good product, if you don't have users using it and people don't know about it, it's completely useless."

Doing things that don't scale, like speaking directly with potential customers, can be powerful for growth.

"Ask them to introduce you to two or three other people who could use the product. And that's really powerful... Do the things that don't scale."

Churn can be a significant challenge for SaaS businesses and should be addressed proactively.

"Churn is a nightmare and so many people underestimate it... It could kill your motivation, your psychology."
