How do I Become a CIO?

Little bit of good luck
Well, yes, sometimes good luck comes into play. For example, taking a job you didn’t want because it was the only one available and the company grew dramatically. These stories happen, but they are not the norm. Most often, people make their own luck. That is to say, when opportunity knocked, they had the right experience, knowledge, business savvy, and professional brand to open the door that became unlocked and partially ajar.
