Wildbit office hours: Natalie Nagele & Sahil Lavingia
Back in October, Natalie Nagele (CEO and co-founder at Wildbit) and Sahil Lavingia (Founder at Gumroad) found themselves sitting on the same couch to discuss how they run their respective companies:
After Natalie talked about running Wildbit as a people-first company, Sahil joked about running Gumroad Sahil-first. It looked like they couldn't be further apart in their positions...
...but, as always, there is more to the story than that.
On December 7th, we're hosting a follow-up conversation for Natalie and Sahil to (dis)agree about the many ways to run a successful business that also creates fulfillment and value for people: shareholders, customers, employees, and the broader community.
Sahil and Natalie will tackle some hard questions about the reality of growing a people-first business—and YOU, their audience, can ask them anything.
You are invited!
Tue Dec 7 @ 11am ET (8am PT, 5pm CET)
Duration: 1 hour
PS: if you can't make it, we'll send you the recording.

And if you're not sure what to ask, here’s a few things that might get you inspired:
Earlier this year, Sahil wrote about his “freedom at all costs” approach to running Gumroad in a post titled No Meetings, No Deadlines, No Full-Time Employees
A few years ago, Natalie wrote in Are you letting the Beast run your business? that, if you leave it unchecked, your business will become a beast that consumes you—and she still knows this to be true
Natalie also believes that founders who don’t pay themselves, and who don’t optimize for their current happiness, are in danger of making poor long-term decisions
