    Hey @ryan, thanks for doing this - honored to have you here.
    I heard about your 'growth engineering missions' at Fomo.com and I'd love to learn more.
    A few questions that come to mind:
    (a) are all the missions focused on acquiring new customers or the growth lever varies?;
    (b) how do you choose the mission? Does everyone in the company can suggest a growth idea?
    (c) how long does the mission last? Is it normally done on a small scale to validate the numbers before rolling out on a larger scale?

    Is there a post about what it was like initially building the FOMO software? I don't believe I saw a post on your blog about it.

    What is your process for choosing an idea for a SaaS product? Marketing tools and B2B products seem to fit the profile for a good SaaS product.

    How do you factor in things like expected MRR, ARR, Churn, etc. when choosing a SaaS to build?

    What wells of information on the internet do you read/watch? Books that have your attention atm?

    Hi Ryan! Thanks for the AMA

    1) What advice would you give to a college student about to enter the “Growth Marketing/Startup World”? What advice should they ignore?
    2) What are one to three books that have greatly influenced your career?

    What social media monitoring tool do you recommend for companies (can be B2B or agencies or big brands) to use? Falcon.io, Hootsuite, Buffer,...? Why should a company or agency use this to monitor all their channels?

    1. Do you plan on doing tech/startup stuff forever? Or if you had enough cash/investments, would you do music/hobbies? I guess I'm sort of alluding to: how much personal wealth is "enough" for you?

    2. What's the most challenging thing you've worked on?

    3. Biggest pet peeve in the world of marketing/sales/growth?
