Well done and insightful

I'm a new listener and have really enjoyed listening to the Best in Saas on my daily hike. Elias is incredibly intuitive in how he engages his stellar guests. He makes it look easy but I know it is anything but easy to pull it off so consistently. I am in sales and coach sales people and founders. I've learned a a bunch already especially from the episodes that touch upon sales and startup situations that I have yet to encounter myself but surely will. Keep it up Elias!
