FOR DUMMIES: The Podcast

Mar 30, 2020

Hackers are not the all-powerful Gods of the Internet as portrayed in some movies, but cybercrime and identity theft are very real, and you may be targeted from people ranging from your friends and neighbors to someone on the other side of the world. Today we’re going to be talking about a completely different kind of hacking that can have major positive benefits for your business and your life.  Host Eric Martsolf is diving into “Growth Hacking For Dummies” by Anuj Adhiya. Anuj learned the concept from the guy who coined the term, “growth hacking” and put it in practice for years at startup companies.
