As he writes in one of his articles,
“When you think of growth, you’re not always thinking ‘essentials’. You’re thinking experimentation and innovation and throwing things on the wall to see what sticks. You earmark a certain bandwidth and financials to improve what you have already built, but the majority of your team works on new ways to beat the competition. Growth hacking, right?”
