“What does your day-to-day look like as a Google Product Manager?” is the single most common question people ask me.

To share my answers with more aspiring PMs, I made this video about my day-to-day working from home as a PM in Silicon Valley.

Like everybody, my typical day started with CANNOT GET OUT OF BED! This video also covered my daily schedule, my typical meetings and what I do to keep the lights on everyday!

Special thanks to the entire cast: Abby, Ben, Felipe, Mustafa and Cat. I am so grateful for having all of you record this video with me and thank you for bringing in your improv talent and spreading the joy to the broader community.
