Blueprint to starting a managed services business.

First and foremost, a huge thank you to the author for putting this great plan out there for people looking to either start a managed services business, or to transform an existing managed services business. It gives people an opportunity to start something great -- thank you!

I found myself entrenched in the content, plan and overall vision of what is described in here. it truly is a blueprint to starting or reviving a runaway managed services company. If you have the desire to run a successful managed services business, this book is a must have. I will listen to this book until the information is branded in my subconscious, and its concepts become my reality. Perfection.

Very Helpful

Getting started as a MSP is quite the large task. With this book, you will learn the ins and outs of starting a MSP business and how to operate it using the authors best practices. Now that I've seen the author's name, I am finding he's quite active in the computer service industry. Who knew? This is definitely worth the read if you are thinking about starting this type of business or you're still beginning.
