Battle Scars

Professional Growth & Experience through time and knowledge in the workplace trenches

Your work life, much like life itself, will take you through a journey of adventures, experiences, successes and failures. Each one will teach you new lessons, expand your knowledge, and in the process make you stronger even though it may not seem that way to you at the time. You will later realize it once you surface on the other end of each experience.

Every setback & hardship you endure translates to skills and knowledge you acquire that will assist you in your march forward to success. Don’t try to avoid the hardships, seek them out.

While we live in the Information Age, Knowledge remains elusive to many, and true Wisdom can only be obtained through experience.

Throughout my professional journey I seek to grow my experience and expand my knowledge. Perhaps reaching any level of true wisdom may still be far down the road, but I did learn a few key lessons in leadership, business, and programming that I will be sharing at every pitstop.

Given enough time, any man may master the physical. With enough knowledge, any man may become wise. It is the true warrior who can master both….and surpass the result
