I’ve decided to start posting cyber security articles I write about right here on this site. You may wonder why? Isn’t this site about holistic health? It is. But, I also have a vast level of experience in information security. This started during my 20 years as a naval cryptologist. I retired into a job as an Information Security Manager, which evolved to managing security professionals across the states. Then I switched careers and went into Nutritional Healing. I owned and practiced in my own Holistic Wellness Center in North Mankato, MN. Life challenges came along and I closed up the center, and went back into cybersecurity. I recognized I burned the candle at both ends and made mistakes in my business model with the center. I toasted myself out really. I went big instead of growing into it. Hindsight was pretty clear and I learned a bunch. I really miss the center, but I’m also appreciating the simplicity of my practice now.
My passion is in holistic wellness. I never got out of this practice and kept a small office in my home. A year ago, I moved my home up north in Minnesota to Finlayson. I bought a nice 10 acre homestead and reopened my practice here. I also have space for presenting classes. I love it.
I still work cybersecurity. I do both. I’ve always kept it separate. That’s going to change.
I think now I’m going to merge the two professions. I see a need to share information security with those in the alternative healing fields. And I know my nutrition patients would benefit as well. I’m not sure what kind of life this merging of fields will develop into. I’m willing to take a risk and open up my energy to permit it. I have a passion in nutrition and I also have a passion in being a Security Evangelist.
I can thank Dr. Ronda Nelson for the nudge. She planted the seed in me during an interview I did on her podcast. I recognized I loved talking about security with my like minded friends of the holistic healing world. What a great combination.
Stay tuned. I may intersperse the blog with some video blog as well. If there is a topic you’d like to hear about, post it in the comments. It can be something from either of my worlds. Nutrition Response Testing/Holistic Lifestyle Coaching or Cyber Security.
