What an awesome story I'm so delighted that you came out ahead, and in coding too, which I LOVE! lol. The beginning of your story sounded awfully familiar to me (the divorce didn't happen, except to me, etc!) but the difference is that I could never afford to attend a boot camp :( The cost may as well be a million dollars for someone like me at my age with children after a lifetime of freelance coding and poverty with zero support. It is always a massive inspiration to hear of a woman whose hard work has generated success for her family, because it is too often we are the ones who get stuck at the short end of things and there are many things against us getting out of that.

I’m curious: If the money appeared, would you be able to carve out the time? Sometimes I feel like time is harder to figure out than money.

Because it feels like for me the next logical step is to figure out how to create scholarships for this.
