So in planning an upcoming blog I was fishing for opinions from various community leaders. My favorite response was from Vlad Mazek whom suggested:
Admit defeat and start writing books or throw a conference or peer group?
Since I’m not the most creative guy in the world he proceeded to share with me some book or seminar topics that he believes I’m a Subject Matter Expert in.
“Vendor whoring for fun and profit”
“Peer groups: None of us are as dumb as all of us”
“Partner Networks: Blind Leading The Blind through the darkness of business incompetence.”
“MSP: Convert your premium rates to commodity fees”
“MSP: From hundreds of dollars at a time to a few dollars a month”
Can I write a guest chapter? “Embrace your inadequacies”
You have got to love how fast Vlad can think while sitting in a restaurant spending my customer’s money on his lunch while I’m here selling his services. Maybe he is right. Crap, I hate it when Vlad is right. Almost as bad as when David has a good question. ;-)
I would have a contest like Vlad where I ask you my readers to post your suggested topics and the winner gets an ipod but there are two problems with that. First, I only have about 12 readers. Second, Vlad would probably win and then he would give it away for his next contest so what’s the point?
