产品经理的抬头

中午见一哥们,给我介绍另外一朋友,这哥们和我以前一起做过事,所以介绍的时候给我加了许多抬头,印成名片估计长度跟标哥有一拼的那种。

我连忙说,别别别,我其实只是个产品经理。你这是捧杀了。

见的事情多了,往往知道自己渺小。以前做讲座准备PPT的时候,作者栏都巨长无比,恨不得把我在学校得的桥牌冠军也写上。这些年才慢慢知道那些非专业级别的抬头根本不值一提。

现在,面对产品经理这个抬头,我也不太喜欢用了,因为没做出过一款令自己满意的产品。我现在没有抬头,努力成为一名敢叫自己产品经理的产品经理。

爱因斯坦那么多伟大的理论,墓志铭上也才3个字母1个数字而已。史玉柱那么多大起大落过来的人,抬头不过“闲人二字。我岂能担当得起那么多形容词放在自己名字前面。

现在妄居“产品经理”四字,权当是激励自己向先贤看齐。

Breaking My Comfort Zone

Although I used to break my comfort zone several times, but this time, it’s really a big one.

I decide to start my own business together with someone I just met, into a unfamiliar industry. In a way, to be an enterpreneur.

It is a “cannot-be-more-traditional” traditional industry – the agriculture, food industry.

Now, China got a huge crisis on the food industry. Too much unhealthy food are eaten everyday. Even the rich who want to buy “clean” food, they can hardly find them in the supermarket. The needs of trustful healthy food are definite and clear.

The reasons why this food crisis happened are varied. The enterprises need to pay high-and-various tax on their products. And the government on the other hand control their price through administrative means. The enterprise which need earn money turn to cut off their original matrial and mix some addtives similar but cheaper into their products with same taste but lower cost. And to escaping the supervise, they have to bribe the government officer. The most important part is, if people eat these food for long time, they will get chronic disease slowly with even no early warnings! But you can not find 100% “normal” food in the market in the meanwhile. Even the oil, the salt and the milk, even in KFC (most Chinese thinks KFC and McD are “clean” (but not healthy if you eat them very often)). In short, the whole industry is a mess.

It’s not realitic to ask the government to change their system or change the officers. So one way to live in this circumstance is offer “real” products to the ones who can accept the high price but win a good name. How about the poors? Sorry but We really couldn’t think that far. Maybe we’ll donate our benifit after we succeed in the market and change the industry. But at the moment, I have to say sorry but I can do nothing. Let me keep a seed in my heart.

I said “yes” to my partners this evening, and will meet them tomorrow. On Wednesday, we’ll meet our retailers. And register our company next week. I just finished my 100 days plan.

No matter how crazy this action is, I’m on my way to enjoy this journey. Best luck of me.
