In today’s episode, I talk to our very own Ayman Al-Abdullah - CEO of AppSumo. Ayman led the business from $4M to $85M in revenue, but as we enter our next phase of growth, he recommended that we find a new CEO to help us become a $1B company.

Reflecting back on his 6 years at AppSumo, there are a TON of golden nuggets he’s learned along the way.

If you've ever wanted to learn how to grow an 8-figure business and why a different type of CEO is required to take us to 9+ figures, you’re going to love this episode.

You’ll enjoy 3 BIG things from this conversation:

  1. The 5 fundamentals of being a CEO
  2. The different stages of growing a company
  3. Ayman’s highlights and lowlights from running AppSumo



I’m currently hiring a CEO for my $85M business AppSumo. And I’ll pay you $100K to the person who refers the CEO we end up hiring.

For CEO referrals:
