Starting personal blog

Recently I was asked why I'm posting my blogs to my companies website vs a personal blog. After giving much thought to this I've decided to start my own blog where I've brought over the last year and half's posts from my companies website. Thanks Steve Endow for the friendly nudge regarding this.

Shortly after my conversation with Steve I was on Twitter and saw a post from Dona Sarkar. She says it best, "your website is YOUR house, not a rental." So with that being said enjoy my new home for all my future blog posts.

Hi Kristen
I would love to follow your blog, but i cannot seem to find any rss feed for it?
When following multiple blogs it really is required to be able to add them to the RSS folder in Outlook so you can see how many unread posts you have on each blog.
Please enable RSS feeds for your blog and ad a link to it somewhere so it is easily found.
Best regards

My DynamicsCon experience

DynamicsCon is a first-of-its-kind, free virtual learning experience for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (D365) and Power Platform users and professionals. Although it came out of the blue it was put together by a stellar team and it was highly successful in my opinion. 
In my opinion this event was successful because there was a need in the Dynamics community for high quality, free learning. DynamicsCon required all sessions to be prerecorded, and on top of that there was a live chat during every session where the presenter could interact with the audience. This was very new and very exciting for the attendees, especially during this world where all conferences are being cancelled or switched to virtual.  Sessions I attendedWhile there were several sessions within the Dynamics 365 Business Central track I only attended day 1 for the functional sessions. Below is a list of the sessions I attended. I've been consulting for D365BC for three years now and I was able to learn so much from each o…

Community Summit 2020 is next week

Community Summit North America is set to kick off next week October 7-9, 2020. 
Community Summit is one of my favorite conferences of the year. This year is sure going to be different since it's going to be held virtually. Not being able to hug my friends and meet many others in person is going to be the hardest part of attending virtually for me. Please give us speakers grace and know that we have all prepared for countless hours to present; however presenting virtually is going to be such a different experience since we won't get to see all your smiling faces in the crowd!  CommunityOne of the biggest things about Community Summit is the "community." Each UG has their own community, but lately the lines are becoming more blurred. Since Microsoft has introduced the Power Platform and it's capabilities across all Dynamics products, I've been able to learn from many other community users, consultants, and MVPs. Bringing people together and being able to learn fr…

My story to becoming a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Business Applications

I've officially been a Microsoft MVP for 13.5 hours, but who's counting. I wanted to sit down this evening and write about how I felt this morning when I opened the email from Microsoft letting let me know that I was awarded the 2020-2021 Microsoft MVP award for the category Business Applications.


My story isn't that different from other MVP's in the sense that we all love our jobs and we love helping the community. It's been a personal goal of mine since 2019 to get a nomination and it wasn't until February 2020 that I actually wrote "Goal MVP" on the board in my office. I decided early on that I was never going to ask an MVP to nominate me because deep down I wanted someone to see the hard work I was putting into presenting at conferences, blogging, and the passion I had for the Microsoft Dynamics community. After all my whole career is based on people believing in me and giving me a chance to do something I've never done before.
First job - proc…
