    Question Onward and Upward...

    So I've been doing infosec for the last few years and I've come to a cross roads. I've been promoted recently and have a great relationship with my current employer. There just doesn't appear to be a technical growth path from here. I want to move up while I'm in my prime . The only caveat is that I can't relocate due to family issues. ( Just turned down a great job because of this.) I'd like to travel and possibly do technical consulting or architecture, but I need around a year or so of certing up on Cisco and Microsoft. I have been a CCSP(Now called CCNP-Security) and a HP-UX CSA, and done a decent amount of AD work.

    What traveling technical positions do you guys recommend?

    Pre sales could be good if you're in interested in the sales process and all that. Commission is nice on that side too. Post sales or professional services could be good if you're not into the sales stuff as much. Lot's of traveling in those types of roles usually.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    I don't think I could sell fire in the Artic. Professional services does sound nice though...
