How I Started a Business and Become a Microsoft Partner and You Can Too!


I ran a business for 6 years from basically tripping through the process and learning as I went. And boy, did I learn a lot! In this session, I will share how I accomplished starting a business and starting a Microsoft partnership, my hard won knowledge and lessons learned, and how you can start your own business and become a Microsoft Partner too! I have included the deck here so that you can have easier access to the links shown in my presentation.

Please note that in this session, I will not talk about selling my company, my other adventures as a Microsoft partner, or dig very deep into my experience of running the company. This is mostly about beginning the journey. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at [email protected]
