    Tadam! Michael and Rafal are back. In this episode, our hosts talk about interviewing customers, which every company or product owner should do to grow their business.
    ⭐️ Key things you will learn from this episode:
    - Why you should talk to your customers- How to conduct the interviews with people who use your products or services- What information you want to get from these online meetings with your customers- Why is it essential to use the 5 Whys method and dig to the source of the problem customers mention.- How new Nozbe time parameters work and what other new features we've recently introduced in Nozbe.
