I was quite flattered recently to be invited to write some “technology industry” articles for the Evan Carmichael entrepreneur motivation website. This week I submitted my first article for their site. If you take the time to read the article, you will see why I titled this blog entry the way I did 🙂
It was an interesting article to write, because it brought back a lot of memories of how I first got asked to join the WordPerfect Users Forum on Compuserve thirteen years ago, and how I was later asked by Novell to help out in the official Novell forums on Compuserve in 1995. From there, a lot has happened, but it still goes back to the gist of the above-mentioned article. I have no doubt that there are many GroupWise experts out there who are just as knowledgeable about GroupWise as I am. These people simply aren’t as “visible”. For some of them it’s a case of just not wanting to be more visible, and for others it’s a lack of confidence in showing the GroupWise community just how skillful they really are.
So for all of you GroupWise experts out there, whether you are already recognized by the community or just quietly doing your jobs in creative and consistent ways, keep up the good work. And for those of you who we don’t “know of yet”, start making yourself more VISIBLE so the entire community recognize who you are!
