In my day to day operations I have the opportunity to work with people in various capacities in regards to data. Sometimes it is in the capacity of a mentor, sometimes in the capacity of a consultant, and sometimes just in the capacity of the dude that fixes the problem.
I enjoy working as a database professional. There may be times when I want to scream or yell or pull out my teeth and hair. Then there are times when I just bounce off the walls with joy and pleasure. Some may call that a manic-depressive disorder. They just don’t understand the true life of a data professional.
In becoming a data professional, I took the long route to get where I am. I made the decision to work with SQL and learn about SQL 17 years ago. I made the decision to learn about SQL because I viewed it as a really difficult thing to learn. I wanted that challenge. Then again, back then I also enjoyed the challenge of learning to configure Cisco routers.
