Jeff Sauer – Founder of Data Driven
The biggest change in digital marketing right now is that
Google has decided to sunset their analytics product that
people have used for the last 15 years.
Don’t be overwhelmed with data. Start with one key
performance indicator per team member. And grow from there.

Andrew Davies – Chief Marketing Officer of Paddle.com
Paddle is the complete payment infrastructure
for software companies.
I would recommend going for longer as a bootstrapped founder
before raising finance. I think delaying that journey if you can is
wise. You get to prove and disprove more assumptions before
you take on a partner.
I love the journey of entrepreneurship, not just the destination.
