Product Manager

Reaching out to all the product managers out there, I am looking to progress my career in the product management and looking for some advice on how you were able to land the role, what made you standout from the crowd? If you can share your experience really appreciate it.

I just kind of fell into it. Had the chance to work on a product my company wanted to roll out and went from there. I think working at smaller companies helps with that transition a bit more because they are a lot more mobile and can launch/optimize products a lot quicker.

Thanks for responding. I have been trying to get into the PM roles but they have all been asking for product experience. So its been a challenge for me so far.
