How to Transition from Business Consulting to Product Marketing – Ramsey Pryor

>>Erik: How did you manage the transition
from business consulting to internet product marketer?>>Ramsey: I think that when I started in consulting
um first of all I thought it was a little bit different than what it turned out to be.
Maybe many of us felt that way but you know I thought management consulting was businesses
asking young whippersnappers out of college how to better run their business. I think
we all found out pretty quickly we were there to be programmers and system integrators and
a lot of us didn’t have like myself didn’t have you know the first clue how to use a
computer or how to do systems integration. Um, you know but we ended up there we got
into the technical world. We had very good training. And then I think when we had the
wits about us to start looking around and figure out how can we actually use this and
what would I want to do within this environment. Silicon Valley and just what was going on
there seemed just like a giant magnet. We had the skills. We had an understanding on
how the technology fit in and it was clear to a lot of us that you know you could either
spend ten or twelve years on a partner track at a consulting firm or you could go today
to California and carve out a path for yourself. And that’s what brought me out there and
that’s what’s so exciting for me is just you know I thought about my career options
and I could either go down a slow road in a very established track or I could go you
know sort of like the gold rush. I could either hit or miss but you know what was guaranteed
was I had a chance to be part of something that was very fast paced very exciting. Um
you know you didn’t have to be 20 years into a company to make a difference. You could
get responsibility of the bat and you know if it worked it worked big.
