March Update

I wanted to share a few things to provide a personal update/status :)

The last several weeks my personal time outside of work has mostly been spent on focusing on VPN related topics which includes shared posts you see + a lot of reading. I fully intend on continuing to focus on VPN topics as I feel the need to brush up on certain areas still prior to moving onto other areas in the blueprint. Other areas of focus I have also been juggling are OSPF & EIGRP in the Routing TCP/IP Vol 1. 2nd edition book to brush up on some topics/skills that I do not use on a daily basis. I intend on hitting some of those areas in labs very soon.

Some other recent news, I am excited to share that I ranked up in the Cisco Community Forums to VIP Advocate for my contributions in the community forums. I typically spend most of my time there in the Network Access Control & Digital Network Architecture forums. Anyways, it is always a good feeling to receive some acknowledgement as I frequently blog to help others there too :)

Thanks to all for following my journey. Remember it's a marathon, not a sprint. I look forward to sharing more with you. Cheers!
