So Matt in the mailbag says that he’s planning to become a consultant in the next 6 to 8 months and is studying right now for the Small Business Specialist exam.

Matt….here are some more ideas to help you in your journey….

  • Join a partner group – the web site at lists the locations around the world for a group in your area to meet and talk with your fellow consultant.  Find out what they do and how they do it.

  • Sign up for the Microsoft partner program.  Get the action pack and roll up your sleeves and start learning.

  • Follow the blogs and forums at

  • Sign up for the SBS listserve resources:

  • for the technical one

  • for the sales/business one

  • for sales/licensing, etc.

  • Use the WOW factor.  Set up SBS yourself and use it.  Get a Audiovox or other Mobile device that seemlessly connects to SBS.  Show the WOW.
