First of all Happy New Year. It has been a awesome year growing from 7.000 to 20.000 visitors per month, 50.000 YouTube views and more than 3.000 eBook downloads. All this because I choose to Take Action.
This year I want to help you to take action to boost your career and maybe increase your salary. Don’t be the one that always says “I should have done this, I should have done that”. Be the one that set goals and Take Action. Write down your goals for 2011 and set them as a wallpaper on your computer & smart phone. A daily reminder of your goals will lead to amazing results.
If you are not aware of it, the world is missing a lot of Citrix educated people. I have seen this myself interviewing people and I know other countries have the same problem. This means that if you have the proper Citrix certifications you will stand out from the rest, boost you career and most likely increase your salary. It gives you freedom and the possibility to work from anywhere in the world. I’m spending 4 months of combined work and vacation each year in Brasil.
Back in the days you could just study hard and pass any Citrix or Microsoft exam. This have finally changed and you’ll need practice to pass, at least with the higher certifications. There is a lot of free training material available like videos, white papers, eBooks, blog articles and online/offline Citrix courses.
The best thing for you to do is to write down a date and sign up for an exam. This will force you to study hard. If you don’t have an available server it’s pretty cheap getting an Rackspace Cloud Server account. The exam and server rental shouldn’t cost you more than $200. A pretty low price compared to the salary increase you could get.
So What Are My Goals For 2011?
I will be releasing a new video course covering Citrix XenApp 6.0 on Windows 2008 R2. A lot of people have been asking for this. The course will be more practical than the normal classroom courses. I will teach you everything from A to Z on what you need to know to install, configure and maintain a real world Citrix and Microsoft environment.
