Welcome to the biggest product growth newsletter on the planet.

The best free newsletter for techies

I make product management, growth, and technology trends fun. After 15+ years as a PM - including at Google and Fortnite - I rose to VP of Product as $1.6B Series C Apollo.io.

The newsletter is all about diving into product growth, company case studies, and new tech trends. I write about 4 main questions:

  1. Product management

  2. How companies grow with product

  3. Technology trends

  4. Career advice

All of my newsletter content is paywalled after 7 days. So subscribing is the only way to get my content for free.

The best paid newsletter on planet Earth

Within my newsletter, there’s also a paid portion.

This is all of my deep content. Whereas the free content tends to be about 2,500 characters, the paid content tends to be about 2,500 words.

🔒 Recent paid content has included:

  1. How to get interviews

  2. A product strategy

  3. A product requirements document

  4. How to measure and improve retention

  5. Breakdown of Midjourney’s product strategy

There’s no better paid newsletter to accelerate your career in tech. I promise it will have a >10x ROI on your career, or get your money back.

Expensing the newsletter

Many readers expense this newsletter to their learning, training, or professional development budget. Here is an email to use with your manager.

Here’s the math:

  • Let’s say you make $150K USD / year (some of you make more).

  • You work 200 days per year.

  • So if you earn 2 hours of additional productivity from this newsletter, a 0.1% improvement, the company has its $150 subscription paid back.


  • Purchase pricing parity: if you are based in a country with lower income compared to the US and Western Europe, email me at productgrowthppp@gmail.com with your country of residence to get a more affordable option.

  • Students: There is a student discount for academic email addresses. Don’t have an .edu email address? Email me at productgrowthppp@gmail.com.

Usage guidelines & sharing content

One subscription is intended for one individual, and not for groups. See the ‘Group/company subscriptions’ on details for group subscriptions.

Occasional forwarding of newsletter issues internally is completely fine. If you find yourself doing this regularly, please consider getting those people a subscription - or gifting them one!


My business philosophy is that if you, as a customer, are not happy, then I’m not happy. I have a 30-day, no-questions-asked refund policy. Please email productgrowthppp@gmail.com for a full refund.

I appreciate if you can share the reason you are unhappy with the contents or purchase, but doing so is not necessary for a refund.
