📺 CFW Interview - Hiten Shah (Cofounder @ FYI)

We sat down with Hiten Shah, CoFounder of CrazyEgg, KISSmetrics, and most recently FYI (find your documents in 3 clicks or less).

Here are some of the interesting topics covered in our 45-minute interview:

  • You can’t have expectations of your cofounder changing (5:45)

  • Why Hiten loves context switching, against the popular wisdom to focus on just one thing (13:40)

  • Making energy for things is more important than making time for things (15:25)

  • Hiten doesn't see himself retiring (17:25)

  • Why care about legacy? You're forgotten sooner than you think (19:00)

  • A typical day in the life (27:00)

  • Most important communication principles: fast, honest, direct (35:00)

  • What Hiten would tell his younger self: "Learn how to accept the change that is happening" (38:33)

  • You add value to the world when you don’t think about adding value (42:20)

Stay tuned for a complete Day in the Life with Hiten Shah later this week.
