Following-Up on My 2018 Goals

Near the start of 2018, I wrote a blog post titled, “New Year, New Goals.” In that post, I listed my top four personal goals that I wanted to achieve for the year. This post is a follow-up to summarize how I did for the year.

IMG_E6898I’ve been wanting to write about my first-ever VMworld experience even before the plane departed from McCarran airport, but I just couldn’t seem to find the time to actually sit down and “put my thoughts to paper” as they say. I can’t believe it’s already been a month since the conference events first kicked off in Las Vegas! The time sure does fly by! But, I at least wanted to share my experience with others who maybe haven’t been to a VMworld conference yet, or who might be going for the first time next year. (Hey, you never know!)
