I just wanted to get one more post in before I took some serious time off.
This calendar year has been crazy...really crazy. Like, I feel like one of Santa's helpers busy crazy. But, it was all worth it 🙂
In this last year, we've launched another major mobile OS, driven new growth and revenue into MCB, and announced our first really killer enterprise app, SCMDM. Plus MEDC, the WM Partner Summit, TechEd, TechReady (two of 'em), CTIA, CES, WW Partner Conference, and a myriad of other shows and events; yup, busy year for Steve.
But I have a lot to be thankful for. I have a great family which I dearly love. I have great friends. I have awesome co-workers who I respect and admire. I have strong management up and down the chain. I work at an excellent company in an awesome division in a sweet market place. I ALMOST got one of my friends to name her new baby boy 'Bacon' (come on, EVERYONE loves bacon). And I have a blog with Reed 🙂
2008 will see many more challenges. I'll be taking on a new role within Windows Mobile which I am VERY excited about. It should actually provide more ops for all of you partners out there who have great enterprise/business solutions. As a new group, we'll be taking on some serious challenges, but I think I'm up for it...after I recharge my batteries.
Which is the reason for the post, just to say I probably won't be updating for a bit, and I'm looking forward to my down time to recharge.
What will I be doing, you ask? Well, hopefully not much 🙂 Playing some Xbox, eating a lot of great food, enjoying my family and friends, and NOT thinking about work 🙂
Hey, how could I forget? I'll be watching pretty much EVERY Christmas show known to man during this time (Rudolph, anyone? -- come on, EVERYONE loves that little guy) while trying to pull off my best impression of Clark Griswold.
At the end of the day, I want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season and a renewed an energized New Year!
And if I fall of the roof whilst putting up the lights, you'll all see the picture here first 🙂
