Simply. Well, I love what I do. I love alliances and being a solutions champion for something I believe in – and it’s not just about webinars and pushing a product. It also about educating your customers so they can make the best decisions for their organization. Alliances on the other hand, is what makes the world go around, for a company at least. Alliances find great partners to go to market with and you both benefit.
The best career advice I’ve received so far is, “Never turn down an interview.” I generally follow this advice because you only have so much time in life to make an impact
I first met Liquidware in the past during my Nutanix days. They were a great company to work with, but honestly, I had over 80 partners, so when a partner that is easy to work with you make “note.”
In July this year, I started up a dialog with Tyler Rohrer (T-Rex) to understand what they were doing with Windows Virtual Desktop, Frame, AWS WorkSpaces, Google Cloud, etc. After 5 minutes, the energy and passion I felt from Tyler was incredible. Hearing about the technology they have been working on and getting a hint of Liquidware’s continued innovation was breath of fresh air. That night, I thought long and hard and decided. At that point, I had a mission, “To Work at Liquidware!” So, the very next day, I approached Tyler and said, “Do you have a role for a person of my talents?” The rest is history…..
One last thing…The one common thought I feel as I get to know the people here, “I joined a community, not a company.”
Standby for an update, there’s more to come!, Rob
