Do you have a growth mindset?
For Tanja Lindner, Brand Manager at Zervant, she had to answer this question when on holiday with her fiancé in the Bahamas. Stood on the stern of a dive boat overlooking the shark infested waters of Shark Arena, the captain gave the signal to jump.

As marketers, CEOs or co-founders working in SaaS, growth is at the heart of everything we do and growth should be the true north for every SaaS company and every SaaS marketer. However, we face these dilemmas on an ongoing basis and when we do, we have the option to stay on the boat, or we can jump and push ourselves to grow — this all comes back to having a growth mindset.
In this episode we look at growth from a personal perspective as Tanja explains how you can adopt a growth mindset based on her career and experiences working in SaaS and at Zervant.
