Recording of my Prod Mgmt talk @TheProductfolks

5:45 getting into PM
11:45 high agency
19:45 liability-superpower framework
27:00 don’t label yourself
28:13 PM as art or science?
33:45 why I joined Stripe
37:30 summary in 20 seconds
38:45 q&a 

Unlike my other PM talks, this one has a number of personal stories from my time at Yahoo, Google, Twitter, Stripe. Blending stories with frameworks was extremely hard for me, but also fun. I created & threw away 3 full drafts of the talk before ending up with what you see above.

Thanks @parthbatraa @MotwaniSuhas and the rest of the team for hosting me.

Shout out to @ahuja_karan and @julesdwalt for reviewing this work & sharing superb feedback.
