Sahil is the Founder & CEO of Gumroad.

The idea behind Gumroad was simple: Creators and others should be able to sell their products directly to their audiences with quick, simple links. No need for a storefront.

Sahil thought Gumroad would become a billion-dollar company, with hundreds of employees. It would IPO, and I would work on it until I died. Something like that.

In this episode, Ben and Sahil discuss:

- Making features simple and frictionless
- How Sahil uses no-code automations personally
