Need help thinking through what to build next, how to motivate your developers, or how to prioritize customer feedback? I can help you! I've held product roles across 3 very different companies and worked with many different types of teams and developers.

Vidya Dinamani

Founder & Partner at ProductRebels.com
My day job is a product coach. I've trained over 200 companies from startups to Fortune50 in how to build products customers love. I can help identify where the holes in your product may be - whether it's strategic (roadmaps, vision, influencing execs/boards) or tactical (team roles, writing user stories, customer interviews). I love talking about all things product, and have a ton of experience to draw upon to share specific examples.

Anand Chowdhary

Co-founder and CEO of Oswald Labs
I've been building and launching products for as long as I can remember and have experimented with several types of business models, including B2B SaaS, B2C smartphone apps, open source monetization, etc. As a full-stack maker of several tools, including a #1 Product Hunt open-source product, I can help guide the big-picture vision and make informed decisions by writing OKRs, brainstorming KPIs, building teams, and launching products.

Jonathan took the time to understand what I was looking for help on and then gave me some really great suggestions. He also took the time to share some insight on some cool projects he’s working on. Really enjoyed it.

Below are a few scenarios where talking to a product management mentor can help.

  • If you are new to product management and feel overwhelmed and want to be mentored by an experienced product manager
  • If you have trouble communicating with various stakeholders and want advice on how to deal with situations of indecisiveness
  • If you’re frustrated that your organization doesn’t value agile lean principles and are stuck in their old disorganized and inefficient ways

It is a good idea to connect with the other person once the session is accepted and the details are given. This ensures that the correct details were given and when it is time to start, you can start on time.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Yup!  Many of the mentors offer monthly coaching packages for members who want to really dive deep into a specific area.

Each mentor creates their own package so what they offer and the price vary from mentor to mentor.  You can find their coaching info at the top of their profile.
