I and a Windows (Wintel) Systems Administrator by training and experience. I also have worked as a Network administrator and had a Completed CCNA course work.
When joining my friend Vizo at Vulcans Logic Networks; Vizo introduce me to “Eli the Computer Guy” I realized I wasn’t a real profession for the 13 years.
True professionals work on and develop their skills and push beyond the everyday routine, but just doing things to get the job done. I had forgotten what about the passion I had for computers, science, engineering, and technology before I started working as a professional.
I built my first computer at 13 years old and always had a computer lab, once I completed my MCSA/CCNA security boot camp and get rid of my lab and started work for the last 13 years, doing things just to get it done developing bad habits.
The 2 years I come back to basics I am rebuilding hackers labs and built and new computer room and I working on a new notebook.
I am learning Linux Administration and DevOps engineering and improving and advancing my skills Windows (Wintel) systems administration and network administration.
What is the difference between a professional and a non-professional? I use to think it was knowledge, but no is it is love and passion for what it is that you do.
Anyone can develop the skills and knowledge but can do have the passion and love to do what you do.
That is the real difference.
