Ran two product management training workshops for product coaches in China, Japan, Germany, Switzerland and the UK, It was the first time I’ve hosted remote training across so many different timezones (mini-fist pump).
Although I’ve cancelled two holidays this year, I am constantly reminded about the importance of perspective. Most recently, I was reminded as I completed 50 Cents new book, Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter.
Have a productive week and for those on holiday, enjoy, come back safe!

✨ SPONSORED POST ✨
Last week I had a play around using a no-code landing page builder called Versoly. I signed up to their free plan and wanted to test just how easy it was to build a landing page with no-code, on my own.
Needless to say with the templates, it was so easy to get started. I ended up building a mock-up for The Angel Investing School in less than 30 mins which was mobile responsive too. You can watch what I did here.
