The Updated Survival Guide for Bootstrapping SaaS

A few years ago, Omar Zenhom shared the story of how it went from being broke with fewer than 300 people on his email list to having 14,000 paying customers and 1 million attendees for WebinarNinja in 5 years. 

We recently caught up with him to hear what he's been up to with WebinarNinja since then. 

In this podcast, you'll hear about the following:

Setting goals and managing growth projections (6:11)

How WebinarNinja fared in the spring of summer of 2020 (6:57)

The specific adjustments he made to the company structure when the pandemic first started back in 2020 (13:40)

How his team structure has evolved since 2019 (26:55)

Where he sees the webinar landscape heading in the next 3-5 years (33:05)
