Startups Should Not Have Growth Teams

Alex Schultz, VP Growth at Facebook just gave the best talk I heard on startup growth at Stanford’s How to Start a Startup, course organised and orchestrated by YC Sam Altman.

In his own words:

if you’re a startup, you shouldn’t have a growth team. Startups should not have growth teams. The whole company should be the growth team. The CEO should be the head of growth.

I learn for and from my work, for…

Famous Women Writers

I was called a feminist in the last year, but I never saw myself as one. I think of me as a humanist, each human being has its own value and place in the world, no matter if they are male or female. I see no difference between the two genders (not to mention that now there are more genders added in the mix, transgender and others), nor I see gender as a determinant of a person’s value. I don’t…

My Perfect Day

I keep hearing people saying that working for yourself is hard to manage, as you have to work hard to focus and do the work instead of getting distracted by things such as Facebook, Hacker News, Twitter, Reddit and the likes. I wouldn’t agree with it, or better put, these distractions exist in an office just the same. If you don’t have access to fun or news sites, there’s always having a chat at…
