MVP’s are nominated to Microsoft from various sources based on the work they have done in the past 12 months to assist the community. It so happens that my award cycle is from October through to September, and today I was fortunate to receive "the email" confirming that Microsoft believed my community contributions worthy of the MVP award. This is my 6th or 7th year to be awarded – I forget which actually as I was not really keeping count. To me – the MVP award does not make me better than anyone else in the community – I know that some think that an MVP can do no wrong, or that an MVP knows everything there is to know about a product, but I’m here to tell you that it just ain’t true. I know there is a stack of stuff about SBS that I don’t know, have not experienced, or don’t feel qualified to speak on. My goal over the next 12 months is to continue on with the support I’ve been trying to give in the community, the efforts I’ve been making to try to get Microsoft to better understand the needs of the SMB IT reseller community and to better communicate back into the community where I am able to.
Thanks for the support of you out there in the community – the people working along side me, helping me to do what I do. Anyone who continually contributes to the community the way I see some people do are all worthy of this award in my view.
