Must be a 1-(wo)man startup. Must code. Must write good copy. Must be passionate about solving problems for our customers, not “designing.” Must fix other people’s designs and front-end code on production (people ship whenever they want).

Guest Post By Conrad Egusa  I want to begin by thanking Sean for the opportunity to write this guest article. I came across Sean’s website Startup-Marketing.com many years ago, and to this day I don’t believe another resource has had a larger impact on my career. Most business owners intuitively understand that PR is important.…

Yesterday was the third time the Growth Hackers Conference was held in Silicon Valley.   It’s humbling to be a part of the speaker lineup at this conference. The collective knowledge and experience of the speakers comes from driving growth at companies like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Quora, Dropbox, Eventbrite, Square, AirBNB, Tickle, Lyft, Udemy, Wealthfront,…
