Hi! 👋 Thank you for the visit. I’m very excited to have you here. My name is Victoria, and I’m the mind behind SaaS Minds (pun intended). My mission is to reverse engineer SaaS growth practices and share them with SaaS founders, managers, and professionals, ensuring they’re well equipped to increase their company’s $ARR.

I spend a big part of my time analyzing different SaaS companies, reverse engineering their growth practices, frameworks, and strategies. Subsequently, I summarize my analysis into brief, easy-to-read reports to help you identify new growth opportunities.

Quick Facts

My mission is to build the go-to SaaS Growth Practices Library, packed with actionable insights, powerful examples, and unique ideas. To run SaaS Minds, I’m combining a specific set of skills & knowledge I’ve acquired during the years:

>> SaaS experience (+5 years working with SaaS brands)
>> Content creation (+5 years as a freelance writer)
>> Interviewing & Podcasting (Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism)
>> Content design (learning Webflow by myself)
>> Digital marketing (learning by doing & experimenting)
>> Business Management (running a registered business)

Things I Do When I’m Away From SaaS Minds

>> Long walks in nature. Estonia is a country rich in forest – over a half (51.4%) of the mainland is covered with mostly semi-natural forests.
>> Communication. Love connecting with like-minded people and discovering new online communities.
>> Non-fiction books. Max Tegmark, Robert Sapolsky, Cal Newport, Lisa Randall, Jaron Lanier, Steven Kotler, Kevin Roose, Morgan Housel, Thomas Sowell, and more.
>> Fiction books. Karl Ove Knausgård, Nikos Kazantzakis, Eiji Yoshikawa, Thomas Mann, Isaac Asimov, Ayn Rand, Anatoly Rybakov, and more.
>> Art. Learning about my favorite painters, such as Vincent van Gogh, Johannes Vermeer, Salvador Dali, Édouard Cortès, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and more.
>> Random. Love espresso, matcha croissants, Moleskine notebooks, and Japanese city pop funk, jazz & psychedelic folk of the 70s/80s.
>> I moved a lot: Chisinau, Moldova 🇲🇩 ➡ Bilbao, Spain 🇪🇸 ➡ Granada, Spain 🇪🇸 ➡ Crete, Greece 🇬🇷 ➡ (now) Tallinn, Estonia 🇪🇪 ➡ (soon) Madrid, Spain 🇪🇸
