Microsoft MVP… To be or not to be.

by @ Monday, August 1st, 2016. Filed under general

Every year I have to submit my "accomplishments" from the prior year to see if I still "rate" as a Microsoft MVP. This is the first year since becoming an MVP in 2001[1] that I have been pinged to be more specific about what makes me valuable enough to be an MVP. I think that […]
