Good Morning from SMB Nation

Day one of SMB Nation is over and what a great event it has been so far. Currently I am sitting in the Kodiak room of the Microsoft Conference Center where yesterday Steve Guggenheimer kicked off the event with his keynote with Harry and several others presented throughout the day. This is also the same place where in 10 hours (4:15 PST), I will be presenting on the new Microsoft Partner Community Manager Team, which is the same team referenced by Steve and Christopher Goebel yesterday during their sessions. I will be talking about who we are, what we do, where to find us, and much more. In addition, all attendees will be the first to hear about some upcoming items our team will be kicking off in October just for you, our Small Business Partners.

One of the greatest things about SMB Nation so far has been the face-to-face interaction with Partners from around the country and around the world. I have had the privilege to interact with so many of you here in the Community and now to get to put faces with names has been fantastic! So to all of you in attendance, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to make the trip out here to Redmond. For those who were unable to attend this year, I hope you are able to make it next year as Harry and his team have truly put together a fantastic event here at SMB Nation!

Thank you and have a wonderful day,

Eric Ligman
