First off, whenever reading my blog – the reading voice in your mind should be that of Morgan Freeman. You’ll like my posts much better that way.
I decided 2 years ago to quit my job as helicopter mechanic and chase down the dream of being a developer. I went through school and when my savings ran out I moved to Charleston, SC to work for Boeing and scare up some cash to keep going. That’s where I found The Iron Yard coding school. I decided to gamble everything once again and try to break into development. After graduation I got a call to do some development in Chattanooga. Since then I’ve got a permanent front end developer position. I fully embrace the idea of chasing your dream. I chased mine and I don’t regret it one bit.
The ‘scare yourself everyday’ idea was inspired by a book I got for a friend one time (‘This Book Will Change Your Life’ by Ben Carey’). Very random. Pretty funny though!
