Everyone has questions and everyone should have an opportunity to ask those questions before a big event to make sure they are prepared. While I can't answer specifics for everything, I am happy to at least provide you a place to ask those questions.
Step 1) Join Discord
You are not alone. There are tons of others that have asked the same or similar questions and while I know that asking a crowd can be daunting, have different opinions will allow you to make an educated decision. One of the best places to do that would be https://discord.mimircyber.com. Our community is full of new learners and those in the industry.
Step 2) Schedule a Coaching Session
I am only one man, but I can set aside 30 minutes to answer questions. Please add some time to my calendar and we will find a way forward.
