Ultimately, it takes a lot of hard work... and a lot of time. Vlad makes a good point in this direction: There are no rewards for just doing your job.
For the Small Business Specialist Community, Microsoft is offering us an opportunity to learn with a small monetary investment: Microsoft Online Peer Groups.
Eligibility criteria are as follows:
- Have to be a current Microsoft Small Business Specialist
- Passed the SBS 70-282 Exam
- Fluency in English (open to partners worldwide)
- Commitment to participate includes attending peer group sessions and completion of homework
- Pay USD $600 for participation (partners that successfully graduate will receive a free ‘for resale’ copy of SBS 2008 Standard Edition)
Check it out ... it may be one of the better professional development opportunities around.
Note that there is a deadline for the end of this month.
