When you’ve got a goal, don’t let it slip away. Believe in yourself, even if others might not see your vision. My journey shows that sticking to it and backing yourself up are game-changers. When you face doubters, stay steady and let your results speak for themselves.

Motivation and Practical Insights for Your Cloud Journey: Beginner to Experienced When it comes to tech, and in this case specifically the Cloud, the focus is often centered on upskilling. What do I need to know/do/have to boost movement forward professionally?This is usually filled with articles, posts, videos, a course, or even a certification. Along the way, we come across "power boosters", those resources that not only inspire us to keep moving forward but also equip us to keep heading in the right direction.Cloud Career Journeys is one of those career power boosters.It shares the varied journeys of 16 cloud professionals. From the beginner just starting, to the pro progressing, to the tech-experienced transitioning into the cloud, to the leaders, trainers, and pioneers. It has something for seemingly each step in the journey.For me personally, many of the stories were from people who have provided a boost through articles, posts, videos, and courses. And getting to hear more of their journey added another level of personal touch I appreciated.If you're considering a cloud career or you're somewhere in the middle of one, through story this is a guide filled with practical tips and advice, actions to take, and alerts to avoid from those that have been there, done that.In addition to the book, the authors have put together a resource kit with some of the best resources available (some really good ones free, some others discounted). A project/book that is not only easy to support but to me looks to be a good investment in my journey.
Great Book!!! Inspiring It is fascinating to read through the journeys of people who you admire. Sometimes, we are only aware of their technical contributions, but their journey can be equally inspiring. I would recommend this as a must-read for anyone in technology.

A great resource for aspiring cloud computing professionals. This book is about the path that 16 people from different parts of the world took to becoming cloud computing professionals.As someone who is just getting started in cloud computing education, I found this book very helpful by providing several resources that enhanced my knowledge about different cloud services and how they connect to each other.It was a great idea for book participants to give actionable advice and recommendations at the end of their stories. I was motivated to purchase this book by watching a YouTube livestream where six of the participants talked about how they would recommend getting started in cloud computing.This is a great book I found it to be very engaging and an easy read.I would recommend this book to anyone interested in cloud computing.

Cloud Career Journeys is a must read for anyone venturing to the Cloud After getting copy of Cloud Career Journeys, I could not stop reading until I finished the book. Yes, it showcases the journey of 16 cloud professionals into the cloud. I never expected that it would be a fun and entertaining book. Without doubt, it is very relevant to my journey in the cloud. It provided me with advice, encouragement and empowerment.The book is not about the journey into the cloud for the professionals showcased in the book. It is about the journey of the reader to a successful cloud career. As a reader, I felt like I was speaking to those professionals and getting valuable advice and tips. It would be hard for me to find this number of professionals and speak to them about their journey. It is very useful that it is in a book format. This is helpful that I can go back to the profiles to get more advice and encouragement. It does not stop at this, it provides links to resources to boost and propel the reader into success.I recommend this book because it is not like other books in the self empowerment and motivation category as it goes way beyond providing specific advice with real examom the experience of successful professionals. This is not a technical book, but it does cover a huge gap on the needed soft skill and mindset to be successful in a cloud career. The book is very entertaining and very enjoyable. Personally, I will go back and read the book again and again. The reason is the book has a wealth of information and advice. I will get a new understanding and advice each time I read it at different points in my career.
