Thank You to My Guests. And a special thanks goes to those who appeared more than once. I know these people are very busy and don't get paid to give us their wisdom on this show, so I certainly appreciate their contributions.

So What's Next?

One of the reasons I started the SMB Conference Call is that no one was doing this sort of thing. My good friend Vlad had stopped doing the now-famous SBS Show. We filled an obvious gap. We also had a lot of fun doing it. Now there are several podcasts addressed to the SMB space. In addition, many vendors are doing weekly or monthly webcasts.

In 2010 we are going to change our direction and focus more specifically on a topic that will be extremely important to all of us who work in the SMB and MSP space. We're going to present it in a different way -- and with a very special partner.

Please plan to join me for a special broadcast:

Wednesday, January 6th at 9:00 AM Pacific / 12:00 Noon Eastern
