Why The Product Compass?

This is the #1 Substack newsletter written by a Product Manager working in the field, not a consultant.

The Product Compass:

  • Explores all the critical PM learning topics and explains how they are connected.

  • Focuses precisely on what you need to know as a Product Manager.

  • Provides step-by-step instructions and actionable advice.

Pawel Huryn, Author, Product @ iDeals

With over 15 years of experience, I occasionally advise experts in the field. See my references from Manuel Pais, the second most successful book author in our domain:

The Product Compass is more than a newsletter. It’s a learning community.

🎯 My goal for the next 12 months is to help you become a 30% better PM, with at least 100X return on investment ($7,000) through articles, skill assessments, courses, community, tools, and individual advice on Slack.

By joining The Product Compass, you will:

  • Learn everything you need to know to grow and boost your PM career.

  • Understand how to apply the theory in practice.

  • Connect the dots between popular methods, frameworks, and templates.
