Most companies fail because they built a technology or solution that nobody wants.
Validating who your customers are and what THEY think their problem is, is the most important work you have to do before you create your technology.
If you have a technology but don't know who to sell it to or are thinking of creating a company but don't know yet who you are trying to sell to, let's chat.

I'm currently building products at Airbnb. Before, I spent 5 years at a group payments company that was acquired by Airbnb. Before that, I was a startup founder.
Discussion will be tailored to you given that most generic advice is often misleading or just plain wrong when taking your individual situation into account.
The role of the PM is hard - and no one really talks about it. So whether you're burned out, anxious, depressed or dealing with Imposter Syndrome, I'm happy to talk with you.
fwiw, I wish there were more ways to find emotional support as a PM, but sadly there often isn't, so let's try this out.
Obligatory note: I'm not a therapist, but I'm human (and have dealt with my fair share of anxiety, depression, imposter syndrome, etc).
Customer retention is crucial to building a sustainable company. If you need help understanding your retention rates or want to talk through how to improve it, let's chat.
Marek is a heart connected powerhouse. He helped us not only see many potential solutions, but showed us how to think about the problem. He quickly delivered value and new strategic ideas. We have a complex problem and he dove in head first taking it apart piece by piece. Our issue isn't going to solved in one call, but now we have more vantage points on it. Also love that he fully showed up as a human.
Marek answered all our questions regarding payment gateways. He drilled down into fine details of payment issues for marketplaces. Definitely recommend you to pick his brain on this topic. He is a great teacher and very knowledgeable. Thanks Marek :)
