Will my son be a software programmer? Who knows:
There was only one time in my life where I made a career decision based on money and although I survived it I am still left with the scar tissue (and my wife making light of it every once in a while…).
Getting a second opinion is a philosophy and practice that my parents (especially my father) instilled into their children. It’s just worth it, from the somewhat small decisions to the very large ones.
