Today I had the pleasure of being interviewed by a friend of mine, Cyrus, from the X9 Security crewe. We talked about a number of topics, including my background in programming and information security, struggles with mental health and wellness, and achieving personal empowerment and success. I enjoyed our conversation, and if you're interested, you can find the interview on his blog.
In other news, as discussed in the interview, I've found myself with the unexpected opportunity to pursue a career change. For the past two years, my wife and I have been driving trucks for a living, hauling cargo across the united states. (You can read about it on our blog, truck stop diaries.) But she recently decided that it was time for a change, and that she'd like to pursue a job that would let her live at home instead of in a truck. Since our company only employs team drivers, and I wasn't interested in driving with a stranger, I decided to leave the company as well. But rather than rush into a new trucking job, I decided to seize the opportunity provided to me and seek employment in the tech sector.
I'm not sure how this will turn out. It's a bit of a gamble, considering we're both unemployed at the moment. But I've got a golden opportunity to pursue a career I'm passionate about, and a career that will allow me to spend more time with family, friends, and the woman I love. I'd be a fool not to take this chance.
Stay tuned for updates!
