In our second episode, I interview Megan Arend who is easily one of the most talented people I’ve worked with. Megan is currently a Senior Product Manager at Nautilus Labs where she participates in their mission to advance the efficiency of ocean commerce.

In our discussion, Megan and I cover a lot of ground and she offers great career advice around:

· How to advocate for yourself by asking for what you want

· The importance of taking career chances even when it’s scary

· The significance of persistence, but also knowing when to walk away.

· Doing more with less.

· The burden of leadership.

· The importance of empathy in your career

· Her morning routine and how to get your brain firing on all cylinders before work

· Her answer to an important question most tech companies care about

And much, much more.
