OK... I'll chime in. Since I was in grade school, I was playing with computers. Anyone remember 808x processors, the Osborne "portable" computer or The Source? At 30 I was a partner in a software company, but I didn't get my first certification until after that when the tech and telecom bubbles burst. Since then I earned MCSE, Security+, CISSP et al. It wasn't until I was 34 that I started EH-Net. On a personal note, I started martial arts at 40, I'm now 42 and a brown belt. If I keep going (and I plan to), I could earn black before the end of the year... that would make me 43. I didn't get married until 32 which makes my 10th anniv this year. BTW - I'm a stay-at-home Dad.
You are the decisions you make, and you can be whatever you set as your goals regardless of age. I have more goals than I can ever accomplish in a lifetime, but that will never paralyze me into achieving none of them.
Take this as you will, and I hope for the best possible future for you and all EH-Netters.
CISSP, MCSE, CSTA, Security+ SME
