CCNA and beyond…

30th Aug 2007Tech, Work

Where should I go with my career? At this point, I feel like I could take it anywhere, but if I’m going to get a business going, I need to have some experience under my belt in order for anyone to take me seriously. I plan to get my CCNA certification this fall, and it’s possible that the bank will fund it. If they do, they’ll want me to stay for awhile, which is fine I guess. This certification will take my networking skills to a whole new level, bump up the pay grade, and give me a leg to stand on when it comes to building a reputation as a capable network engineer. In any case, I want to get a business off the ground more than anything. I contemplate ideas for several hours of every day (requires multitasking at work) and write them down, but nothing has really been good enough to get me going…until (hopefully) now.

If you’re wondering, video production/editing is out. I think I’m capable, but it’s just not what I want to do: dealing with quality control and holding onto tapes from a one-time event makes me nervous and is just too much for one person. Additionally, the volume of projects that I can take on is directly related to the number of people available to do the work, so the money coming in can max out quickly.

Ideal: I want to start an IT consulting company (preferably with a buddy/partner) that specializes in high-end networking (the stuff that the in-house IT folk do not know how to do) and that eventually has online web presence for remotely fixing individual computer issues — all done while on the golf course (ok not really about the golf, but that’d be way cool).

So that’s that. And if you have any ideas for company names, I’m all ears.
