I wrote my first spec nearly 6 years ago and since then, I have been lucky in many ways:
- Worked with some great minds in product, YC founders, profitable/bootstrapping founders, and brilliant engineers and designers
- Built for users across the spectrum - from rural sales folks to internet-enabled small businesses to big banks and insurance companies
- Managed a platform doing 2 million transactions a day
- Built profitable products on both subscription and transaction models
This is a small attempt to share some hard-gained insight, and hopefully help people avoid some of my mistakes.
I live in Vancouver, BC, and identify as a parent, husband, teammate, and product manager - although not always in that order.
Thanks for reading!
