So you want to be a product manager but don’t have experience? You’ve probably been given the advice to make your own experience. (at least that’s the advice I’d give you if you asked me).

Well how exactly do you make your own experience? The easiest way is to make your own project/product. And no it doesn’t have to be tech related.

Pick something you already do (or want to do) and add product management principles to it.

I’ll walk you through exactly what I did it with a comic strip idea I had about a balloon. Yep you read that right – comics about balloons. Its called Happy Balloon Comics and I make a new one every Friday.

Step 1: Write down the requirements

Pick a random idea – literally anything. It could already be something you do and write down the requirements for it and what your expected results are.

I wanted to make comics about balloons. My requirements were:

  • Make comics on a weekly cadence
  • Share them on social platforms
