Ignore the noise. You have 43 years left to do your thing.
I’m 45 and just started learning Cloud Computing with the goal of becoming an AWS Solutions Architect. And I will reach my goal no matter what !
Keep on learning !!!
You will accomplish your thing !!!
GO, GO, GO, GO !!!
I think your cousin fears, that his “fake-it-until-you-make-it-mindset” will come to light
Dont get demotivated bro, show him and the rest of the world, that you can do it.
There are so many people who start late careers. It depends on you. Do you WANT to work in tech industry or not. Try to not look at other people, and listen to your inner self.
You’re not alone, let’s break societies expectations, we have these one life to live, learning to learn is lifelong journey…
I’m actually inspired by your story. I’m in the process of a career change as well putting in about a couple hours per day.
I would like to know how you’ve progressed over the 3 months? @kedar.agate
Things work differently for different people. Now I am thinking that I could learn better through books or through joining any institution.
But the real truth is too much of learning resources hampered my learning for sure.
But I will be right back on the track. Because I dont have other option because I lost motivation in my current job also.
But important thing to note here is I have not lost my learning consistency. I am spending 2hrs daily.
And I welcome you to the journey.
I would say… he might be right. But 33 is still not too bad. I am 41, and am learning so I have some better skills to put on my resume. But I only have 45 min per day to dedicate to learning JS. So it will take me a while. These situations are always better for younger folks. I say, treat it like a hobby, and who knows, maybe you could get good enough to get paid.
Hi, I left my job 2 weeks ago to go into tech. Nobody knew about that even my husband.
I am 37 and my previous job had no connection (primary education) and I was thinking that everyone would say “No, you are old to risk and start something that you have no idea”. But from the first day I started, I loved what I was doing.
I applied for a scholarship, gave exams and yes I have been offered a place. Then, I let everyone know about my transition and they told me well done!
It’s never too late!
@smpezert wow, sounds like you took a risk, but glad that worked out well for you!
Congrats on the new job! You are living proof that it is very possible! Thanks for sharing that.
