Jaime Jay welcomes Chad Bostick to today’s podcast. Chad is the host of Hello Tech Pros, and seeks to help build businesses, products, and careers. Listen to his story and learn how to overcome social struggles as well!
In the Groove with Technology
Since childhood, Chad has not been always comfortable around people. He finds himself more comfortable around technology and computers instead.
Everyone has been in some situation where you feel very nervous, like everybody’s looking at you.” -Chad Bostick
Chad learned to use computers by himself. As a kid, he discovered that he can hack and play with computers to do what he wants it to do. Growing up, he dived into technology—playing video games and learning codes.
At 10 years old, Chad got a computer that didn’t have software. He had a stack of family computing magazines that had type-in programs listed at the back. He would type in the codes listed, and the computer would do what the code said it would.
Chad slowly learned the craft over the years. He became pretty good at it by the time he was college-aged. He had come a long way from his first job doing some scripts and multimedia projects in a small startup.
There are many ways to be comfortable around others. Chad shares how he overcame extreme anxiety.
Whether you think of yourself way too high or whether you think of yourself way too low, it’s still internally focused.” -Chad Bostick
Chad discusses that unless your anxiety level is already at the extremes, it is perfectly okay. Realize that everyone has struggles in life. The best thing to do is to get over yourself, and learn to be externally focused.
