Everything was going well for AJ Yawn, but he couldn’t shake the feeling that he could be doing better.
Yawn has a bachelor’s degree in social science from Florida State University (where he played on the men’s basketball team) and a master’s degree in technology management from Georgetown University. He had spent five years in the U.S. Army, ascending to the rank of Captain. After leaving the Army, he was working in the cybersecurity field as an auditor, performing SOC 2 examinations and ensuring people’s cloud environments were meeting SOC 2 requirements. He was doing better than he had done in any previous position, and putting himself in a good financial situation. In spite of all that, Yawn felt like he could be doing more.
