📄 My Online Portfolio


✅ Takeaways from Kavir’s session on PM Portfolio:

  • Focus on the impact you’ve had, what action led to that impact, under what context
  • Show, don’t tell: include rich media — tweets, images, videos, audios, links
  • Add your work experience, side projects, and other creative work
  • Embed case studies of teardowns or deep dives
