For this ninth episode, I had a chat with Patrick Campbell, Co-Founder of ProfitWell, the company that helps you with analyzing and boosting your subscription revenues.

After growing up in South Dakota, and prior to starting DocSend, Russ had quite the track record. He worked at Microsoft, Dropbox, and Conversant. And he sold a company to Facebook.

For this sixth episode, I had a chat with Des Traynor, co-founder of Intercom, the unicorn messaging company. Over the years Des has been building marketing and product at Intercom. He is an important driving force behind many of their innovations and an inspiration to many fellow startup founders. Des and I talk about how to build great products (much more on that in our Iconic Products series), his plans with Intercom, personal passions, and what he'd change if he did it all over again.


005 Louis Jonckheere - Showpad

He leads a 260+ person scale-up that equips sales and marketing teams at Fortune 500 companies with the tools to organize and track the delivery of sales content to their prospects. Louis is a born entrepreneur, hustling since he was young. And he's also one of these guys who can recognize and double down on a good opportunity when he sees one. We talk about his passions, how to build a great team and culture, and the power...


004 Sujan Patel - Mailshake

For this fourth episode, I talked to Sujan Patel of Mailshake, Pick, ContentMarketer, Narrow, Linktexting, Quuu, Ramp Ventures, Web Profits, … does this list even end? Sujan is a serial, but even more so a parallel entrepreneur, who likes to keep pushing his own limits to the extreme. He knows all about building startups and is a great guy to have a coffee with.


002 Hubert Palan - Productboard

Hubert is a product guy and a thinker at heart. His vision: more excellent products through better product management. We mainly talk about what motivates him, how he manages Productboard, and where he looks for inspiration. Full...


001 Adam Hempy - Better Proposals

For this first pilot episode, I was lucky to talk with Adam Hempy of Better Proposals. Since last year when Salesflare and Better Proposals were on AppSumo at the same time, we talk with each other on a regular basis and you could say we have become founder friends. Adam is one of the most honest, authentic, and driven startup founders I know. He will never shy away from saying what’s on his mind, which makes him the perfect first guest for this series of personal founder talks.
