Breaking into product design mid career?

Hey guys, so I’ve been working in marketing for most of my career (10 years) and have picked up some graphic design work in the past few years. I work for a medium sized tech company, but am uncomfortable disclosing the name on here. Now I’m thinking I want to transition into product design. I don’t know how to do this, or if it’s even doable at my age.

Any tips for making the career switch at this age? How to market my skills, prep resources, portfolio building tips, etc would all be appreciated. Also wondering what kinds of companies might value someone with my experience.

Thanks guys in advance!
