As much as I have tried to hide it and deny it, the past two years has professionally about my journey from technology consultant to business development. It has not been the smoothest transition. Heck, I even fought it for a year mentally. But last year was the turning point. I hit my stride, accepted my new role, and was able to turn connections into relationships. Last evening, as a great PSC Group event to celebrate and kick-off 2012, I was awarded with a very humbling award. The above photo is the end of a Louisville Slugger bat engraved with the PSC Big Hitter - 2011 award. I sold more than a million dollars in services last year. This happened even with two months of being sidetracked as I dealt with Dad's passing. Thanks to everyone at PSC Group who helped make this possible - especially Andrew, Rick, John and all of the kick ass consultants who worked on the projects I closed. I am surrounded by one of the best groups of technologists in the business. They make the ideas that I sell happen. Here is to a great 2012 and reaching for the next milestone!
