Vendor: Now What
What do you Wish you had known?
A sales role can cost you some tech skill
Your brand can conflict with your company's
Quotas can be as stressful as go-lives
Depends on role
Can get old very quick
Small Airport = Layover
Can be short notice
No on call!
Clients dictate schedule,
Worldwide team could still mean 2am calls...
No longer thinking about infrastructure
A Product's value is more than the sum of it's abilities
What do you miss?
You aren't important at conferences
Ownership of a system
Every day was the same as always
How has relationship with tech changed
Concern with Value, not clock speed
Education is most important
What is better?
No longer a cost center
Learning a new set of skills
