Success in the Security Industry

Author: John Honovich, Published on Apr 12, 2012

Unsuccessful people often wonder why they are so, developing silly theories about what is holding them back. The Women's Security Council is an organizition essentially dedicated to that cause. In their awkwardly named Las Vegas seminar imploring woman to, "Sell Yourself - But Don't Sell Yourself Short", they offer a slew of bad advice. Success in the security industry, and in technology businesses, in general, has nothing to do with their feel good, self help techniques.
