SBSC: Microsoft invests in us ... if we invest a bit in us too

When building our business, there is no magic bullet to success.

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)
Being a part of a peer group is very challenging. That challenge comes in the form of being challenged by my peers to grow and in turn my challenging them to grow.

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.
