Product You is a weekly newsletter by James Gray, a former CIO, CPO, and career and leadership coach.

💥 Accelerate your career - life is not forever.

Every week, I share career strategies, techniques, and challenges to spark action for impact, meaning, autonomy, and rewards from the work you love. I curiously explore reader questions and challenges to bring a new perspective. View this newsletter as a voice to elevate your consciousness during the hustle and bustle of a typical week.

🤝 Join the Product You community.

Growing a successful career requires connection and relationships with people to learn from their perspectives and inspire our paths. It’s more likely that you will find your dream job through your professional connections than traditional methods such as applying directly through career sites. There is no reason to go it alone! This newsletter is designed to spark insights and engage in open, collaborative conversations.

🧠 Keep your career top of mind each week.

You will receive a new article in your inbox and the Substack app every Thursday morning (US Central). Each Sunday, you will receive one key idea and challenge to meditate on for the week ahead. I also synthesize key ideas and book recommendations from thought leaders on topics essential to managing a successful career.

You also get occasional discounts on one-on-one career coaching, referrals to people in my professional network, and recruiters that primarily place professionals with technology, data, and product experience.

Life is not forever. Build a product that only you can share with the world. ❤️
