Leah is a PLG ninja 🥷 or shark 🦈 or maybe a PLG shark dressed as a ninja that is not afraid to look at her LinkedIn profile as a list of failures.

In this episode, Leah openly shares her past failures where she learned a great deal from. The first was at Small PDF, where she made the mistake of being too secure in her hypothesis to a point where she almost launched without testing. The second was her failed collaboration with Miro, where she learned that no matter how experienced you are, you can't be too sure of yourself.

Leah also discusses her experience founding a company with her father in 2002, where they failed to understand what people wanted and it cost them a lot of money. She suggests that with the knowledge and insight she has now, she would have tried to pivot the business faster.

Overall, this episode is a valuable lesson in embracing failure, being vulnerable, and learning from mistakes. Leah's candid sharing of her own failures is a reminder that even the most experienced leaders can make mistakes, and that it's important to be open to learning and growing from them.
