Stacey Champagne believes that cybersecurity careers are a means to disrupt the inequity of wealth and power in society. As the Founder & CEO of Hacker in Heels, she attracts, advances, and advocates for women in cybersecurity through her programs. Today, Stacey and I dive into how she got started in cybersecurity and how the lucrative profession has changed her life, inspiring her efforts to do the same for other women by introducing them to this field. Stacey also juggles a full-time job on top of being a solopreneur, so we dive into the best way to take a much-needed break while keeping an engaged audience.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Stacey’s background and professional journey into cybersecurity
  • Her mission to attract women to the cybersecurity field and develop them to flourish in this career
  • How to take a break from being a solopreneur so you can recharge and come back better
  • How to communicate with your audience and let them know you’re taking a break
