I'm about to crash the product line of a fortune 50 company. They shouldn't have trusted me with so much. Half a billion dollars lost. How to I survive with this guilt? I'm a failure.

You can think about it when you're in prison being fucked by your cellmate

I did nothing illegal. The product just grew bigger than I could manage and now it's not sustainable.

what guilt? you made it successful at one point who cares if it crashes.
>>
>>18078983
Because I told them I could handle it and I can't. They trusted me. I said everything was under control. They won't know they are fucked until I quit because I can't make it work.

ok this is easy. you have done nothing wrong here. the company should never have hired someone as incompetent as you. it's the company's responsibility to weed out unintelligent employees and to delegate important work to the big boys who can get shit done.

You have nothing to be ashamed or upset about.

You built a brand into a massive success. Now you go to your bosses with the numbers and say "This has gotten bigger than even I imagined, and obviously isn't a one-man job anymore. I am confident we can take this even higher, but you're going to have to give me a whole department to help carry it from here forward."

You won't get fired - you'll get promoted.

Amazing. Not OP, but it makes me genuinely happy to see solid advice arou d here.

>>18079934
This is solid advice, unless the product line has already fully crashed. You could try and save it though, if that is the case.

If you feel you're in an all-or-nothing scenario then it's worth whatever risk that may be involved; if asking for a bigger team is the risk, then it's definitely worth it; especially since, as you said, the product is even bigger thanks to you.
