Hi ladies. I need career advice. I am currently a “technical account coordinator” which is a fancy account manager. I am currently doing the product manager role and working on making that change permanent. I have 10 years of sales experience also and the sales team wants me. We are a start up environment and I’m really passionate about product. BUT I am very motivated by money and want a role with room for growth into senior leadership. Any advice?

I would recommend looking for opportunities outside your current company. Connect with brilliant recruiters from Big corporates on LinkedIn and share your profile. They can direct you in better direction & available options in market.

If you’re motivated by money, move into Sales. You can grow into Leadership by managing a Sales team but understand that Individual Contributor vs Leadership look very different. If you’re passionate about Product and want to lead, consider building your skills at your current company through a PM role. It’s easier to get PM roles at other companies if you have 3-5+ experience with that title. It also very much depends on the industry & product. Good luck!
