I hit Nick Mehta, CEO of Gainsight, right in the gut.
And then I took a hard shot to the chest by Gainsight’s New Business director.
Working in a startup is rough, lemme tell ya.
As Nick and I stood on the sidelines during this company outing – battered, exhausted and laughing – watching the remaining players trying mercilessly to eliminate each other (and have fun at the same time), Nick turned to me and said:
“You should write a blog post on what Dodgeball can teach us about Growth Hacking.”
So, looking for any excuse to rest – this wasn’t just dodgeball but TRAMPOLINE dodgeball – I came up with a list of 10 lessons (5 Do’s and 5 Don’ts) you can, in fact, take from Dodgeball and apply to Growth Hacking.
Okay, here we go.
