Managed Services in a Month
Resource List

This is provided for folks who bought the book in audio format. We realize that listening to the resources and typing them in can be a pain in the neck.
So here are the resources mentioned for each chapter.
Your feedback and corrections are welcome.

Several products are mentioned in this book. A mention is not an endorsement. I’m just presenting the world as I see it. I expect you to take this information, mix in your own experience, see how it fits with your business model, and make your own decisions.

Having said that, it seems silly to mention products and people, but not give the contact information. So here they are in alphabetical order:
