But, since launching Sendible 13 years ago, I've discovered that to truly stand out, the best strategy is to focus on the more human things – the "unscalable". So, if you're looking for a fresh perspective on how to be truly memorable in a noisy world, then this is the podcast for you. Tune in every week for short, actionable, and unscalable tactics that you can use in your business today.

Tobias Günther has been an entrepreneur and a CEO for almost 20 years. He started 4 companies, including Tower, a Git Desktop Client with over 100,000 customers, that he sold in 2021.
