This has changed a ton as my career has progressed and continues to evolve as I get better at my job. What I measure myself on today is very different than what I’ll measure myself on in 3-4 years, and the key is being able to make those mental shifts and not measuring your current role by the sa......Read More

Medium updates are larger changes that potentially open up a small new audience or unlock new revenue potential. Large updates are major ......Read More

When my company had only 1 product we were separated by function (i.e. pricing/packaging, sales enablement, product launches, market research, etc.), but in other companies we were focused on segment (enterprise ......Read More

It would be impossible for me to detail all the ways we work with these teams, but at a high level: * Sales & CSM: I'm bundling these two together, as the type of work we do with each is similar at a high level. We work closely with sales leaders and the sales enab......Read More

You have to nail this in sequential order.  1. First comes strategy 2. Then comes positioning 3. And finally comes me......Read More
