✍️ Letters to an Aspiring PM

Hey, Sean here.

I remember feeling lost when I got started in product.

Sean, the author

And I wish I'd had a shoulder to lean on. These letters are the hard-earned lessons of getting it wrong, repeatedly, that I hope to pay forward.

But I don't have it all figured out. I don't know any more than you do.

What I do notice is that people in our field tend to focus on methods, tools, and techniques as the hard-to-master parts of product management. Not the emotional underbelly, the fears and the doubts.

The part where I felt the most unprepared.

So let's help each other out.

I want these letters to be genuinely useful to you. That only works when I get a chance to hear from you about what resonated, what fell flat and what's still missing.

I want to do it on your terms. There's no email list to sign up for here, no newsletter to subscribe to. I'm not here to monetize you.

Write me directly from here. Or if you prefer social, I'm @skaulana most places.

I can't wait to hear from you.

A few acknowledgements 🙏

Much love to Andreas, Brad, Holly, Kevon, Kim, Lisa ❤️, Manpreet, Meg, Milan, Noam, Oana, Sabz, Tiffany, and Travis for their support and inspiration in bringing this project to life.
