    Calibrate how you perceive and manage actual risks (with John Opdenakker)

    Calibrate how you perceive and manage actual risks (with John Opdenakker)

    Using the same password to most (or all) of your accounts is like using the same key for all the doors in a city. When a data breach like those we often read about happens, it’s like someone just copied that key (and many others). The attackers instantly gain access to everyone’s homes at the same time. It’s unsettling, isn’t it?

    This is just one one of the reasons I got interested in cybersecurity: because it changes your mindset and the way you make decisions. Once you understand it, you start to see your own choices in a very different light and you start to question them, to ensure they make you safer and more resilient in protecting your work, life, and the people you love.

    In this episode, application security specialist John Opdenakker explains to us what cybersecurity means, who can be affected by cyber-attacks and how you can protect yourself from them. So take a listen, and learn the basics of this sector that is no longer confined to the interests of technical-minded people.

    Don't assume, even if you think you know (with Matthew Woodward)

    Don't assume, even if you think you know (with Matthew Woodward)

    We often base our decisions on perception rather than reality, a perception of our making that sometimes gets in the way of making wise choices that benefit us in the long run.

    For example, having a corporate job gives you a sense of security and stability that is rarely real. There’s a hefty amount of uncertainty involved in both holding down a full-time job and in running your own business.

    I was eager to learn how Matthew Woodward, one of the best SEO specialists on the web, built his impressive business while helping thousands of people and transparently sharing his journey.

    For Matt, leaving the ”cozy” corporate world and launching his own business was a painless transition because of his approach (which he shares in detail).

    So if you’re looking for struggle p0rn, you won’t find any of it in this story.

    If you’re searching for thought-provoking questions that help you identify and move towards life-changing choices confidently, then hit play!
