Our guest today is Katie Colgan, an Application Security Professional, and Cyber Security Content Creator.
Katie is Grant Colgan's partner, and she will tell us what it's like to work in the same field as your husband, how she decided to put her career on hold to raise their children, and why it was the best decision she could ever make.
We discuss how, despite not currently working in the industry, why and how she keeps up to date on current events and her plans to obtain certifications in the meantime.
Katie explains how she overcomes her social anxiety, what she means when she says she "hacks stuff," and her advice for other mothers who are juggling time with their children and time at work.
Do what's best for you and what you can do, because you'll not regret it spending time with your kids, it will be worth it.
Kids grew up so quickly, and I'm looking at it as you have about 18 years maximum with your kids being kids, and that is not a long period of time.
So make the most of the time that you have, careers will be there when you want them.
