Happy New Year, you wonderful people!
As we get started with this new year, I wanted to write a few words to express my gratitude for your support and engagement with all the content I publish.
It really means the world to me.
It's been just over a year since I started my solopreneur journey, and 2023 was the year I found my Ikigai. ❤️

For those who haven't heard of Ikigai before (I hadn't until a few weeks ago), it is a Japanese word that loosely describes the things that bring joy to life.
When applied to work, it describes the vocation that is the perfect cross-section of
What you love
What the world needs
What you are good at
What you can be paid for
For me, that's turned out to be helping people, teams, and their companies get better at product, growth, and all things PLG.
I do this through my advising engagements and one-to-many through writing and publishing content here on LinkedIn and via my plg.news newsletter.
Ikigai is an amazing concept and something I'd encourage you to think about, as when you find it, great things happen.
I'm really excited about what 2024 will bring, and I'm looking forward to playing my own small part in helping the product and growth community to continue to level up.
So, thanks again for helping make this a reality for me.
I hope 2024 brings peace, joy and fulfilment to you all.
PS: Look out for the first post in the 'AOAPM - Adventures of a Product Manager' series. 😍
