Weekly Blog #8

🎉 I helped two more people land their Product roles! As of now, I’ve proudly helped 202 people since September last year. Keep reading to find out more!

I must admit that the Chinese proverb “May you live in interesting times” recently hit me hard. For a few weeks now I have not had a week where content generation and coursework could occupy the “usual” third spot. Being a Product Manager means you have to excel at prioritization, but if something dear to your heart falls behind, it does put a little regret in my heart.

Regardless, I try to put out a post every day and am available to Product Managers who suffered the recent wave of layoffs. I have a collection of free materials to help them go, as well as try to assist personally (via chat). Just reach out if you need help!

There is a new video on the YouTube channel and I am looking forward to resuming work on my new course and redoing the original one — none will be released this year, but I hope to at least have the footage recorded. At the same time, I need to turn in my 2 final scripts for LinkedIn Learning. The recording for that will take place in the middle of December and it will be pretty special. Unlike my private projects, this will be done with super professional equipment provided by LinkedIn. Perhaps I will invest to replicate the setup based on that experience! I also need to turn in the first exclusive article for Tealfeed, where I am part of their creator program.

In the meantime here is a rundown of posts I made for the last 2 weeks:
