100 Product Managers Interview with Kasha Stewart from Beachbody On Demand

Oct 11, 2016

Episode 11: “The Queen of No” with Kasha Stewart, Beachbody On Demand

By: Suzanne Abate @suzanneabate

Kasha Stewart is a shining light for the underrepresented in tech. A seasoned veteran of the film and television industry and a proud survivor of its misogyny. "Everytime somebody told me I wouldn't understand I made a point to go out and learn it," Stewart tells me from a boardroom in Westlake Village, where she now sits as Director of Product Management for Beachbody On Demand.

If you're not already familiar, Beachbody is a global fitness brand and purveyor of tough-as-hell fitness programs such as P90x, Insanity, 21 Day Fix and more. Beachbody On Demand is a young startup in the Beachbody ecosystem, having just launched a beta streaming service that offers members anywhere-access to the Beachbody library, as well as a new reality show called The 20s - a televised race to appoint the newest Beachbody super trainer.

100 PM sat down with Kasha, the self-described "Queen of No" to talk about why sticking to your vision is essential to product management success, how to foster a supportive working environment, and why she loves her job:

I love that I get to see stuff built and I get to touch it and play with it and then I can go and show it to people and then people can use it. I love that part of it. I definitely started in film and entertainment for that reason, and I still get to make things. It's an execution of my mind in a way that I didn't necessarily envision. For me, I love that I saw this when it was wire frames and then now, it's this real thing. It exists and it started back in the back of my head. That part I love hands down. - Kasha Stewart
