A guest post by Charlene Lee on lessons she wishes she could share with her younger self
Love these hard-earned and thoughtful lessons, thank you for sharing Charlene!! I especially liked #4 about planning to learn. - Kerri
Love the idea of asking how we can be helpful, and aiming to deliver value for our teams regardless of whether that value is in our direct line of work. Excited for where this will lead us!
"I continued to volunteer to help with anything I thought was interesting or could be beneficial. I raised my hand to run a development training for the region, led an international study trip, hosted women's ERG breakfasts, and organized a hackathon. Two years later, I ended up joining Jon’s team. He then helped me land an opportunity to work in Shanghai with a director I had met during the training I'd organized."
This read is really powerful! Thank you 🙏🏾 I feel fortunate to have read it at this time in my career :)
Really straightforward and well-written. As an experienced PM, a lot of these points resonated with me as well.
I just discovered and ordered the Naval Ravikant book from this essay. Thanks for sharing! <3
This is one of an amazing reads
thank you for helping others know about these things which we never do on our journey.
