Tech Stand UP Podcast- Episode 4 – Secrets Exposed


Secrets everyone has them, and this week’s guests are no different. I am joined by three guests this week; Rebecca Fitzhugh, Mike Burkhart & Herb.

This is the fourth and final recorded live at the VTUG Winter Warmer event podcast, and it is a fitting one to say the least.

Tech Stand UP Ep 4 Secrets ExposedMy original plan was to talk with Rebecca on becoming a newly minted female VCDX, for those that are unaware the VCDX is a tedious process to obtain filled with multiple certification exams followed up with an architecture design and defended against by a live panel. It is a huge accomplished in the VMware space, while to me personally I don’t see gender , however woman do have to go against unbiased or sometimes biased views in the world. So, seeing a smart lady not caring and continuing to go for what she wants and be a role model for other women is inspiring. I have two daughters, I want them to be inspired by other females to do great things.

Well, the recording went different, as Mike and Herb joined and the four of us had some awesome banter. That is why I record these to capture different conversations from all areas and view points.

Notice past the banter is the underlying story of how these three guests became friends; helping each other through some tough times, just laughing. It makes you think of how relationships are formed, relating back to episode one of Tech Stand UP.

It also is a testament to the virtualization community pulling together, the VCDX program has a great community support  system. Both were undeterred by failing the panel defense.

Many  do not like talking about is failing; while we all know people fail , many choose to not say anything. We focus so much on success despite there having been many failed attempts.

So give it a listen, and what secrets are you holding?
