From imposter syndrome to DevOps superstar!

Hi everyone,

It still feels surreal, but just a couple of weeks ago I had the immense honor of being named DevOps Professional of the Year for 2024! Even after two decades in this fast-paced industry, I can’t help but feel pangs of imposter syndrome. This prestigious award is a humbling validation that I’m on the right track and have valuable expertise to share.

My drive to help all of you on your tech journeys has only intensified after this recognition. Whether you’re diving into the nuts and bolts of DevOps or considering transitioning to an independent contracting career, I’m more passionate than ever about being your guide and mentor.

Having walked both paths as a long-time permie and contractor myself, I can attest that contracting is where it’s at for anyone craving flexibility, variety, and top-notch compensation. Don’t get me wrong, traditional employment has its merits. But in my experience, nothing beats being your own boss and picking and choosing your dream projects.

My goal is to help every one of you overcome imposter syndrome and develop the confidence to thrive as a contractor. With some coaching on skills like contract negotiation, personal branding, and calculating your rate, you’ll be well on your way to designing the lifestyle and career you’ve always craved.

I’m here as a resource, so don’t hesitate to reach out about DevOps, contracting, or anything else!

Hope you all have a great Easter!
