Top three things Pedro would wish they knew when they started in product
Pedro’s recommended top three skills:
Don’t wait to fix things - Don’t wait for people to put things on your lap, and be proactive in fixing things or solving problems.
Over-communicate - Always over-communicate what you’ve done and what you want from people; don’t be afraid to shout about what you’ve done.
Daring - Be daring, and don’t worry about what other people think (especially if you think you are not good enough, everyone is bumping around).
