Ep.29: Breaking into Product: Entrepreneurship + 'Failures' + Solving Customer Problems
We’ve all heard lots of product stories from entrepreneurs who made it big, but what about product people who *almost* made it big?
Taylor tells us about his breaking-into-product journey. After finishing college, and a short stint selling pre-paid cremation products in the Bay area (which is the best story ever), Taylor comes up with the idea for his first product, and becomes an almost-famous entrepreneur (my words, not his). After a series of successes ,'failures' and a stint as an EIR, Taylor finds his niche as a product manager in a tech start-up.
This story highlights how the entrepreneurial spirit plays into being a successful product manager, and how a love for solving problems is key to success as a PM. Also, in general is just a delightful career journey into product management.
