Ft. Shyvee Shi, Product Manager at LinkedIn. We discuss everything about solving for challenges in the ed-tech space, productivity, non-linear career, finding support for growth, PM skills, & more

Hey everyone,

Here’s this week’s update from the The Founder’s Foyer show!

Building and shipping impactful products is definitely the enjoyable part of a product manager’s journey. It’s fun to think about what problems to work on, putting on the founder’s mindset from time to time or working with fellow co-founders on the team. Of course, there are so many challenges to tackle on the way, and as someone doing it on my day job, I can’t agree enough!

So, here's a peer to chat about building products, navigating ideas, and understanding all about this journey. Shyvee Shi, Product Manager at LinkedIn.

She also co-founded the PM Learning Series wherein she chats with product leaders across the globe to share insights for levelling up the product career. She’s a passionate creator and an educator who also just launched a course on productivity for product managers.
