This was waiting for me when I got home the other day:
Wow. This was way beyond anything I expected, which was nothing, really, since this recognition is the kind of thing that makes you feel awesome all on its own.
I’m serious about that. I was giddy the moment I found out and I’m still giddy, 15 days later.
Trailblazers. Pioneers. Wave-makers. To me, being an MVP means having an added ability to help effect change and shape the future for the better of our communities, online and off.
And this is the first year that we Yammer admins got included in Microsoft’s MVP Award program. That’s enough to make a person feel rather gobsmacked, but in a good way.
On an even more personal note, my CEO announced this recognition at an All Company meeting, and all day I had people coming up to me with congratulations.
I can’t help but smile as I think about it, even now. It really means a lot having your peers think it’s a big deal, too.
So cheers to you all today, and I hope something awesome happens for you, too.
P.S. There are also STICKERS.
