Lessons from SaaStr
I went to SaaStr for the first time this year.
The booths were fun. They had cool swag like t-shirts, hats, caricatures, lotteries, and more. The sessions were interesting and insightful.
But none of the above made SaaStr special to me.
The one-on-one conversations did that. Meeting new people and building relationships did that. The five-person dinner at the end of the last night did that.
Genuine conversation is a superpower. Life is connection. Business shouldn't be any different. We can't accomplish as much if we go it alone.
When we partner, we all win together.
