293 — Sahil Lavingia

Podcast Summary:

Sahil and his team at Gumroad have helped over 40,000 creators do more of what they love and have sent over $200,000,000 to creators and artists. This is an incredible achievement. So, when I read his February 2019 Medium Blog post entitled, “Reflecting on My Failure to Build a Billion-Dollar Company (It took years for me to realize my pursuit of growth was misguided from the start)” I knew it was time to get him on the show and share more.

I really appreciate Sahil detailing this journey. He had a personal epiphany around his own motivations as a Founder & CEO. And he walks through this and much more in this very candid interview.
