More Catfished By A Candidate: Why Not Hire Him Anyway? And Answers To Other Burning Questions
"While there was certainly the possibility that he could have been a top performer, at the end of the day, I just couldn’t take that chance. The most unsettling thing to me was the length that he went to in order to craft his story—fake LinkedIn profile, a whole story around why he was leaving the job, fake references."

“Talk to You in 2021”: When There Isn’t Budget - by @jasonlk
"But your champion at the company? She may still be looking for a win this year.

A SaaS Founder’s Guide to PR - by @jasonlk
"I was fired for one simple reason: I demanded results.

First, I demanded we actually measure PR. That we score the PR hits each month, graded both on quality of the hit, as well as the prominence of my company in the piece.

The Age of Cutting-Edge Tech in SaaS: How The Success Bar Has Changed - by @jasonlk
"Machine Learning, AI, and IoT may be trite terms. But the underlying theme is that a rich, nuanced, workflow-rich app is no longer good enough to break into the enterprise. Now, you need a fairly insane engineering and data science team to deliver the insights and value the enterprise is expecting. A dashboard — even the world’s richest, prettiest, most insightful dashboard — isn’t enough anymore. Many of the best SaaS start-ups have 10+ accomplished engineers from Palantir and Google on their Day 1 team. The hackey-MVPs and MSPs are going to have to be a lot more clever to compete today."
