11 Days in Orlando
So this has been an interesting year for me. I traveled a lot speaking for ConnectWise and enjoyed my first trip to New Zealand and Australia along with several cities in the United States I've never visited. It all culminated with yet another trip to Orlando for IT Nation and HTG (now IT Nation Evolve).
I met both Arlin Sorensen and Arnie Bellini on the same day in 2006. This was my 10th or 11th IT Nation, I'm not entirely sure which, but it has been many years since I started coming. I've been fortunate enough to be a partner, a user group facilitator, an advisory council member and a speaker for ConnectWise for a very long time. I also spent over 10 years in HTG.
When I sold my IT services company I began to disconnect a bit from this community. Mostly what I'm feeling is grateful to be reconnected this year and be able to give back by sharing the experiences that I picked up both as an MSP owner and in the work I've done with Teamatics and EOS since. I've gained many friends and important relationships and I look forward to more years being a part of this world. It was great to be back!
