When I was around 8, Nostradamus set me off on the path that led to where I am now.
He said (in this abridged book I read) that WWIII would arrive in my lifetime, and so I wanted to be a crew member aboard a starship explorer like the USS Enterprise to escape it.
We couldn’t get into an Aeronautical Engineering degree (so that I could pilot the spacecraft of course!) but ended up in a Computer Science course but that’s ok because maybe I can program the robots onboard!
Things didn’t quite work out as I planned.
MS Office trainer Network engineer
Call centre consultant
MS Dynamics consultant
Salesforce Engagement Manager
… and now more than 20 years in the IT industry, I’ve decided to put my experience into good use and train / coach others who are new to consulting.
I am nowhere near being part a spaceship crew heading for infinity and beyond. I thoroughly enjoyed my journey though, and wouldn’t change it for the world.
How did you end up where you are now?
