Another Email Testimonial

Today my day was brightened when I received the following email:

I’ve been reading your blog for the past few years now and just wanted to say thanks for your efforts.  I recently decided to change my career path after being a production DBA for the past 10 years in the Dallas area.  Your blog posts on professional development, especially the ones describing your change in career and your thoughts on working from home have really helped me.  I am starting a job next week where I will work remotely doing performance tuning, troubleshooting, and database development with the possibility of learning .NET programming for a small software company.

I’m looking forward to your discussion next week at the North Texas SQL Server Users group meeting.

Thanks again for all you do for the SQL community.

It really helped turn around my day for me and I wanted to share it with everyone. When you put yourself out there as a public figure you are bound to get some negative feedback from time to time. But when you get emails like this one it really helps you to understand why it is all worthwhile.

Thanks for the message.
