Our big all-day pre-day seminar is selling well.
Thank you all very much.
NOTE: If you tried to order the three-payment option and freaked out at the price, try again. This is now fixed. You will be billed three smaller payments, not three times the full price. Ooops.
Find out more and register now for this all-day Zero Downtime Migration workshop.
Anyway, so here's what I did this morning to get ready for SMB Nation:
- Posted an ad for a web development intern. We need this for several reasons, but the most important one is to build the online community web site for owners of The Network Migration Workbook.
This person will also do some overhauls of existing web sites. Relax Focus Succeed needs to be on a CMS platform. That way we can load up more information, organize it better, and everything will be easier to find.
SMB Books also needs to move to CMS.
We're going with Joomla for all of these.
- Ordered the Prize Wheel. Hey, we're going to be in Vegas, baby! So the SMB Books booth at SMB Nation will have a spinning prize wheel.
Not 100% sure what we'll give away. What do you think of leftover ducks?
Seriously, we'll probably give away discounts and some free books. Don't know how to estimate traffic, so I don't want to haul a bunch of books and then have to ship them back.
We might just have someone go run around to all the other vendor booths, collect their give-aways, and then give them away ourselves with the prize wheel. We'll call it a green initiative since we'll be recycling swag.
If you have other ideas, let us know.

Standard Operating Procedures for Computer Consultants and Managed Service Providers
A Four-Volume Set
by Karl W. Palachuk
This four-book set includes more than 1,300 pages and covers everything you need to set up, run, and fine-tune a great consulting business. PLUS there are dozens of downloads that include additional material, valuable checklists, Excel spreadsheets, and more. SOP
Don't Start From Scratch!
You may not implement everything exactly as I lay it out, but I discuss the issues and why you might create one policy or another. Then I propose some policies you can take and mold to fit your company.
Can you do all this yourself? Absolutely!
How's that working so far? These books will save you hundreds - and more likely thousands - of dollars in just a few weeks. Time and time again I've helped businesses create small changes that resulted in huge instant increases in profit.
