Building BimaPe has been a journey of making hard decisions & facing
uncomfortable moments - especially as a 1st time Founder.

I thought I'd share a few of these with you:

1. Good hiring makes you redundant ๐Ÿคท
- For the first 3 months; I took part in everything - UX research, product
decisions, UI changes & copy.
- E.g. Abhinav (UX researcher) has shown me - its better I keep quiet during
customer calls & let him lead; I sometimes feel I'm not required!
- Same with Vedika (our PMM)

2. Delegation isn't easy ๐Ÿค
- I've always been an independent contributor, becoming a manager has been a
difficult transition.
- Andy Grove's 'Task Relevant Maturity' framework helped us smooth the
delegation process.
- Toda Vishrut & Abraz do a better job running QA sessions for our Product;
Kunal & Eashan do so for Engineering.

3. Sometimes you are the roadblock in execution โœ‹
- Less participation from me on design elements has improved our Product in the
last ~1 month.
- Moving from "musician" to "orchestrator" (writing PRDs, syncing with the team
on strategy) is a huge transition.

โ“I've learned a few things here - happy to answer any questions you have/bounce

๐Ÿ‘‰Wallet by BimaPe ( is the product we're building;
would love your feedback!
