Quote

“The SaaStr Pro weekly lessons have been a great way to train my team. We’ve always had a meeting to talk about things we’ve learned, but lately it had grown stale. Now, we talk about the SaaStr Pro lesson for the week, debate it a bit, and then decide on the precise next steps to implement. Our meeting has its mojo back!” -Errette Dunn, CEO, Rever.
