jpanek: Panel discussion at #chantran13. Change to MSP one customer at a time. Get staff on the bus one at a time.

Golem5: Managed service providers don't want their solutions to break. Ever. Solid point. #chantran13

InsideRSPA: #chantran13 via @Golem5: Contact recurring clients every 3-6 months. Set budget expectations for next service they may want to sign up for.

Jim_Roddy: Attendees at #chantran13 say they love the diversity of channel executive here. Various businesses & verticals. @bsminfo

jpanek: MSP Rule of 78. Add One customer @ One dollar each month = $78 rev at year-end. Imagine $100 - $1000 per customer. #chantran13

jpanek: Make a x/y matrix of customers and services you sell. Green check if they have it, red x if they don't. Go sell some services! #chantran13

DavidWells101: @Jim_Roddy Great event, came away with more than going in and made great connections in the process #chantran13
