Today you’re gonna hear my conversation with Brennan Dunn. It’s been awesome to get to know Brennan these past few years and to follow along in his journey.

We start talking about Planscope, the previous SaaS company that he built and sold. Then we shift to his training business which he’s grown with an Engineering approach.

In 2017 Brennan is launching a new SaaS company called RightMessage. Brennan shares how he came with the initial idea, how he on-boarded the first customers, and then of course how he’s been growing it at very rapid pace.

Listen to this episode to understand Brennan’s mindset, how things unfolded from year to year, and give a peek at behind the scenes of RightMessage, his new SaaS.

Enjoy!
