In the comments of the last post, a whole slew of you said you’d support the CrankyPM in writing her first and last book: Product Management, the Cranky Way.
Well, now it’s time to DWYSYWD.
Get over to Kickstarter and make a suitable pledge! DO IT! DO IT!
(Alas, you have to create a Kickstarter account first, and if you are one of the few people in the world who has not ever purchased anything from Amazon, you will have to create an Amazon account as well.)
Read more details about what will be in the book, what the Cranky PM needs the money for, etc.
She needs to raise $5,000 to even move forward (because it will cost about $7000 total, and she can’t kick in more than $2000 from her own funds – any more than that and she’d be robbing the Cranky Kids’ college funds).
You will see that there are many, many rewards/perks available for high-value contributions. T-SHIRTS. MUGS. A CHANCE TO MEET THE CRANKYPM IN PERSON. For all you various training firms and vendors of PM software, why not take out an ad in the back of the book, high school yearbook-style?
Let’s get this party started, shall we?
The Cranky PM would appreciate your support in getting the word out.
This would be a great way to wrap up this blog in a pretty bow, and to then move on with life. Thanks so much for your support and for your virtual camaraderie all these years.
