Road Trips

Friends, IT Business, IT Culture
Comments Off on Road Trips

This has been an interesting year, road-wise. I entered the year with one company and all of my hobbies cleared. Now I have 4 companies and another professional hobby (book) and after a ton of traveling this year I have to come clean and announce that my next and last official business trip will be October 20th, 2010 to London for CompTIA EMEA.

Even though I’m not a part of the other stuff, Own Web Now, ExchangeDefender, Shockey Monkey and the new yet unannounced business will be sponsoring the ASCII event in Boston, the MSPU event in Newark, SMB Nation in Las Vegas, CharTec Academy in November, the HTG All meeting in Orlando and of course the ConnectWise event here in Orlando. The HTG and ConnectWise might have a brief cameo visit from me simply because I count many of you as my friends and I’ve made a promise to several of my international friends to come by and say hello. 

Beyond that, the person in charge of all of OWN’s marketing (roadshows, print, webinars) is Stephanie Hoffman. I likely will not return to the road until spring time.

On a more personal side, I really do enjoy hanging out with my partners. That’s why I’ve made the Orlando International Airport my second home this year and done so much to help so many of you embrace the cloud and make a lot of money from it. Looking at our numbers, many of you have ran with my message and made a ton of money from it – and that’s really what it’s all about – helping each other succeed.

Since March of 2009 I’ve made a significant effort to introduce you to the others in Own Web Now that make all of this possible and we continue to build a business management center out of our Orlando office. Everyone that works here is easy to reach and is here to work with you.

So while I take some time off to help my wife and welcome our second child into this world I hope you don’t take it personally that my physical presence at the shows will become more limited. However, my presence on the web and on this blog will increase 🙂

It’s been a fantastic year both professionally and personally, thank you so much for stopping by and saying hi. And of course, thank you for reading Vladville. The traffic keeps on going up even though I’ve posted less so it’s great to see the entertainment value has remained 🙂
