From Average to Awesome In a Few Short Years

Presented by: Brandon Bruno
Time: Thursday, Jan. 10, 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

I graduated college as a C-average student - I just wasn't very ambitious. My first few developer job interviews that following summer were hard lessons in rejection. I had no idea where my career was going. Times change. Today I am a lead engineer at a major consultancy, work with Fortune 500 companies, make six-figures, and live debt-free (I also speak at conferences, mentor fellow developers, and travel the country). What happened? How did I go from average to awesome in a few short years? The path of self-improvement is full of challenges, but challenges bring opportunity. I learned to embrace opportunity, navigate around obstacles, and learn from mistakes. This session will highlight real tips and advice for setting proper goals and how to measurably progress towards them. Let my stories, lessons, and experiences inspire you to achieve real goals and be your very best, even if "imposter syndrome" is your middle name.
