Whether you're a founder, developer, project manager, or somewhere in between; what skills have you learned organically or been required to learn in the course of your work? How has this helped you both inside and outside of your job?

Main learning for me is that having positive people around you is very crucial to build a growth/learning environment. As basically everyone in the founding team of a start up I worked a bit on each department and I realised that usually is not impossible to acquire skills on the journey - even when from the outside they look like very hard skills Practically, I learnd a lot about Growth and Fundraising especially: Spotting different channels, which one to prioritise, having a clear communication strategy, how/when to reach out to investors, how to find their contacts Looking forward to learn much more!

I learned a lot about myself while I was a teacher.. Discovered that process of sharing with knowledge and experience with next generation and seeing how they are using it makes me happy!

For me, the key lessons are: - Take ownership of every decision. I feel the need to be my own manager and have my own vision for building product growth. - Vibes are everything. I do my best to treat clients and colleagues well and make sure we have fun at work. - Hard work always pays off but most important returns usually come in the long haul.

Everything is dynamic and there is nothing irreplaceable. Everyone should understand this and no one should be afraid of moving forward and leaving things aside when it's gone bad or don't really work. Btw, we’re launching in the mid of June. Check out our upcoming PH page: www.producthunt.com/upcoming/eff... Our project is called: Effecto. It’s an app for detailed habits, health, symptoms, and meds tracking. Pretty much for everything that is related to your physical or mental health and every daily factor that can affect you.
