Funny experience - I was in the line at a craft store and started chatting with the people around me. Person in front of me was annoyed about having to craft valentines for her kid's class. Person behind me was getting a late start on his kid's science project. They asked me what I was in for.

Me: oh I don't have kids, so I'm picking up a new hobby (watercoloring).

Them: oh. You must have a lot of free time and money huh.

Me: yeah it's pretty great 😃👍

I just bought a charcoal drawing kit! It’s been awhile since I’ve done anything crafty so I’m really excited about it. Watercolors are so fun and pretty!

Love it! And I’m also an amateur watercolorist!

I took a drawing workshop! But I still wasn’t great, so I started using trace books. They’re fun because they let you just focus on the painting parts—color selection, washes, brush techniques, etc.

As a PM, I feel as though I should own and manage the product. But Senior Leadership often comes to me with “we’ve promised this to a client so you have to build it”. There’s often little to no discovery of the benefit of building something beyond “client excitement in a meeting”. How do you handle these types of issues, especially when it’s CEO, VP, and Directors owning the roadmap and you are the executer?

A client (not a leader but an analyst is that matters) really yelled at me to a point that other clients on the same team reached out to me and said that I do not deserve to be spoken to like that. I learned later that he was on an improvement plan and that he speak to many (women) like that even his former boss. I was given the option to escalate if needed but I’m not sure if I should. I hate the awkwardness of this.
