“Karl, I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. Very much worth it! Being such a busy body, and hating wasting time in traffic, this audio book helped me to be productive. It's a constant reminder to for me to 'Get off my butt!'”
“Thanks for the great book. It has really been helpful. We have spent the last year getting our tools up to speed, phone systems in place and a number of other things we didn't have or added. We are in the finalization of things when we found your book. So we took a few steps backward and it has been really helpful.
We are now also reading Service Agreements for SMB Consultants. With a few more ready to order.
I feel like we looked forever and just never found these resources. I am very grateful for these book recommendations and the ideas in your book.”
“Managed Services in a Month is a easy read, giving practical guidance on how to convert an existing break-fix business into a managed services one.
Karl walks you through a series of exercises to build, package, sell, and convert customers. His down-to-earth style of writing is like having a consultant working personally with you.
This is a great first step to getting into Managed Services.”
“Get off your butt and get this book I have listened to the audiobook 3 times. Karl takes the difficult task of getting started in managed services (successfully) and breaks it down into clear concise steps that ANYONE can follow. Yes there is a lot of work but you should definately buy the rest of Karl's books, Network Documentation Workbook, Network Migration Workbook and the Service Agreement book.”
"I read this book in conjunction with "Service Agreements for SMB Consultants." Until recently I had only done "break-fix" work. I needed a guide to to help me get clearer on what I was offering and how to present it to the client. The material in this book helped me do just that. It contains invaluable advice on deciding what to offer, and how to communicate it to the client in a way that will increase the chances that the outcome will be successful. The information is broken down in a way that is very manageable, rather than overwhelming.
I was a little nervous about the undertaking of putting together a package to present to a prospective client. It felt much more manageable and doable with this book as a guide. After my first sit-down with a prospective managed service client, the client commented on the quality of the presentation. They signed a contract a week later. Of course your mileage may vary, but I feel the help I got from this book was invaluable in steering me in the right direction."
Ken Edwards on Managed Services in a Month
“First of all, a word about the author, Karl Palachuk, here is a business man who has transferred his years of experience in the computer consulting field into VERY topical books on the subject. He is success oriented, and that is communicated in his titles by not concentrating only on the minutia we tend to immerse in (technology), but into the "lessons learned" and business systems that transform a business. You will do well by following the advice of Karl not only in this book, but his other titles -- particularly, in compliment to this book, "Service Agreements for SMB Consultants." My own company's service agreement was completed after purchasing that book.
Now, in regard to this title, the focus here is not simply on the technology. The focus is on building a business system that is not only repeatable, but also profitable, minimizing the effort it takes to deliver service. The benefit is not all for the service provider, though. Benefits are equally delivered to the client/customer.
Purchase this book, and do so with Karl's "Service Agreements for SMB Consultants" and you'll have enough of an education to transform your I.T. support business.”
“Money well spent. I keep referring back to this book, it is very hands on and applicable to the real world.
So many other books are written by obviously very intelligent and successful people, but 50% of it applies to my business, and the other 50% is interesting but just doesn't fit my organization. While reading Karl's book, I get the feeling that he's been where I have been, and can help me move forward and improve my business.
I read a lot of technical material but Karl's stuff is very process oriented, which is where I need the most help!”
“This book is filled with great tips and a lot of spot on strategy. It is really all about doing the kind of business you want and eliminating the ups and downs. Karl's step by step approach will get you there, and quickly.”
