🔆  The principles that enable your SaaS business to keep scaling easily

What’s the secret to creating a SaaS business that can truly scale?

That’s a question I explore with Christian Owens, CEO of Paddle. 

TL;DR A 2-principle framework for everyone to make decisions – simple enough that when people internally hear it, they don’t forget it.

In our interview, we explore Christian’s journey to claim Unicorn status:

  • Christian elaborates on the holistic mission principles that underpin his business.
  • He explains how that helped build defensible differentiation and the foundation to scale.
  • He talks about what it takes to get customers happily pay a premium for products that are not exactly sexy.

Beyond that, what makes this interview a must-listen-to is this

  • How to avoid your Marketing team writing checks that the product can’t cash. 
  • Why you should avoid making the unsexy sexy if your product is not the coolest thing in the world
  • Why you should not focus on trying to create the one magic bullet of a feature – and what to do instead
  • How guarantees, where you promise to pay for damage, create a mindset internally that can become your competitive advantage
