A childhood friend of mine is retiring in a few days after 30 years in the Tech industry and I wanted to share a few of her key thoughts:


"I had no idea that my computer science degree in 1986 would lead to 25 years in the tech industry. Was there even a "tech industry" in 1986? The Internet was just a plaything for academia... Who knew what it would become?


Pursuing a career in tech was the best decision I ever made. I got to work on cool stuff and met some awesome people...My advice to all of you... Don't be afraid of math and science. Even if sitting in a cube programming all day isn't your thing, there are tons of careers in the industry that provide social interaction, creativity, and excitement! And maybe the opportunity to retire at 51 to follow your dreams."


Congrats Jo, way to go girl!
