One word describes day three - HOMERUN!It started with a great worship service. I had many thank you's for having church as part of this event. Over 60 people were there and another 20 or so said they missed it - mostly because I failed to announce it as planned on Saturday. But a special thanks to Jeff Wood and Brad Schow for leading that worship and the testimony from Jonathan Warrey and music by Brian P from Jeff's company. Those guys did an unbelievable job and the message to touch people by serving them is so absolutely true. I am sure they made God smile!The sessions for day three were also outstanding. We had three tracks of content that was unparalleled from any conference I have at...

Make sure you remember to thank our vendors for what they do. They don't "owe" us anything. They make choices to invest where it makes a difference in their success. So let's show appreciation to 35 or so vendors who are supporting SMB Summit, first by selling th... Continue reading
Well it is 10 PM and I am tuckered out. We have put the finishing touches on the SMB Summit program for tomorrow. It is going to be a great event. There will be some warts, some imperfect things that happen. We won't have enough power plugs, enough Internet speed since everyone is used to these high speed pipes at home and the office. But we will have good content and great people gathered together in community. Focus on the people - not the other stuff. This is your chance to connect with folks and LEARN. If you are coming to have a perfect experience, let me appologize in advance. Since I am involved, perfection is not possible as I am far from perfect. But if you are here for th...
