Hi Tom - I’ve been enjoying your videos for a while; I think it was a FreeNAS video that I stumbled onto first. The business and entrepreneurship videos are awesome, too. I’d like to suggest a video on how a worker could find a good MSP to work for, what to avoid, and how the worker can bring the most value to the MSP.
Having been in corporate tech for twenty years, I find the idea of being able to work on a variety of things and being kept on my toes appealing. While many of my peers just settle into their ruts (“I do Exchange”, “I do VMware”, “crap, the cloud put me out of a job”), I like trying new things. I’m a fairly smart guy. I find solutions in unusual places, and I can put on a happy customer-centric face when I need to.
I also know my limits - I’m not the guy that’s going to be doing the cold calling or arguing about contracts. In the corporate world, I’m the guy who partners closely with my manager, advises them, translates between manager speak and tech speak, then gets stuff done.
Sorry for the long winded post, I just wanted to provide some context. Thanks again for all the great content.
