About the Podcast – Making A Difference:

How is technology making a difference in your life today? On today’s episode, my guest Selina Tobaccowala discusses her newest startup Gixo and how she plans to help consumers lead healthier lives. You’ll hear Selina compare and contrast her experiences with Evite, the company she co-founded; SurveyMonkey, the company she helped grow and scale to 200 million users; and Gixo, her current-day startup that she co-founded with Al Lieb.

Selina also shares insight into what makes a great Product Manager and how to take your career to the next level. It starts with carving your own path, a lot of success starts with you taking on more responsibility—be proactive and ask for more from your manager instead of waiting for them to come to you. Selina also tells me that PMs are the glue that makes all the pieces work and it’s important to know the answers to the following:

  • What are the important areas of feedback that helps drive your product?
  • What are the business metrics?
  • What are the strategic goals?
  • How do you make sure you have a great engineering partner (or team)?
