I’ve been thinking about creating a 2nd edition of Lean B2B for years.
The content’s there. The learnings are there. But I’ve been afraid of breaking it; breaking something that’s already working.
I think I came up with a solution.
Today marks the launch of the Lean B2B Course; 5 hours of high-quality video lessons expanding on the content of the book.
The course dives deeper into ways to manage runway, find early adopters, connect with decision-makers, conduct interviews, and reach product-market fit. The complete course structure is available below.
It also includes battle-tested worksheets and templates, and access to the all-new Monthly Virtual Office Hours. You can check out the Lean B2B Course right here.
