Why am I hosting these Product Chat sessions?
I didn’t start my career out in product management. If you told me I’d be a PM when I just getting started in my career, I would’ve said “What’s a PM?”
My career started off in marketing where I developed skills in growth marketing that translated into product management. I got a chance to try my hand at product management and realized that product was where I wanted to be.
Throughout my marketing career, I had the opportunity to speak at various conferences and meet other marketers as well as product managers. Turns out that was an amazing way to learn. I realized that it was valuable to learn from people working at different companies, sometimes very different companies with very different products.
As I met more product managers, I realized they had very helpful frameworks for problem-solving, communication, and prioritization. I slowly began adopting those frameworks myself and eventually found myself in a growth marketing role doing a lot of PM-esque work.
I eventually made the move to become a product manager and haven’t looked back.
These Path to PM chats are sessions for myself and other experienced PMs to share knowledge and give aspiring PMs a space to ask questions and get guidance on moving into product management.
