July 29, 2010

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash., July 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — SMB Nation (www.smbnation.com) and Aspen University (www.aspen.edu) announce training partnership for technical SMB channel partners.

“Being the best technologist is the easy part, thriving as a business is more of a mystery … and gaining knowledge of ways to do it seems virtually impossible,” says SMB Nation Founder and CEO Harry Brelsford. “There is a strong call to action with this market to address current changes. We have worked hard to put together education that is designed especially for SMB VARs by industry experts within the (very) learned SMB Nation tribe.”

Dr. David E. Lady, Aspen University President, says “A good portion of the SMB business leaders reading this press release will be out of business if they don’t quickly adapt to current disruptions in this market brought about by cloud computing. This new model is a disruption to their core product and service offerings. Our goal is to get information out to as many SMB business owners as possible to help them not just survive, but prosper on the other side of this market shift.”

The online “Pocket MBA” program delivers comprehensive; executive-level curriculum to busy IT professionals. The curriculum is drawn from cutting-edge business leaders; materials focus on essentials necessary to aggressively build a competitive market advantage.

“It’s our vision to have SMB Nation tribe members step up their game, to really become trusted advisors to their clients,” Brelsford said. “That journey can start right now, with a critical and comprehensive look at Aspen and the Pocket MBA program.”
