2015’s Best on the Business of SaaS (and Life)

The year is busy wrapping up its final act.

These last few days, made the fleetingness of time, ever more apparent. Calendars, as much as they help, can do some really strange things to us. But that’s alright.

Because this period also holds something magical, the apparatus that births new dreams and the courage to pursue them. What helps?

Letting this opening gust of enthusiasm pass through the mesh of shared experiences, and the hum of some great stories. Thoughts. Lessons. Daydreams. All carefully assembled by fellow homosapiens.

Building a SaaS business requires certain virtues. So does building a life.

What follows is a collection of essays and podcasts that concern the same virtues, juxtaposed with equally abiding pieces that explore their importance in life.

We hope that this will help you lay the groundwork for another year of betterment and enormous impact.

“No one can build you the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life. There may be countless trails and bridges and demigods who would gladly carry you across; but only at the price of pawning and forgoing yourself. There is one path in the world that none can walk but you. Where does it lead? Don’t ask, walk!”

~ Friedrich Nietzsche

“Trust your gut as much (or more) than the numbers. Figure out what matters and build something good.”

“If someone signs up for a free product, you've only learned that someone was willing to exchange a small slice of time to try it. That teaches you very little about whether you’ve built something useful.”
