It seems like Iíve been struggling, fighting my way to what I want for the last twenty years. In many ways, thatís exactly true. Iíve always had a non-traditional background: a ďdeviantĒ from the plan at college, working full-time while enrolled in a grad school program where no one worked full-time, coming into IT from the business just before the dot-com boom. Iíve never had the approved degree, background or training, yet Iíve always proved I can do the job. But Iím tired of fighting, of trying to prove that to others who are filled with preconceived notions. Iím tired.
