As you get started with your business, one question is running through your mind: How much do I REALLY have to know?
The good news is, to start, not much. Installations these days are much easier than ever before. Wizards walk you through the steps, and you can get Not for Resale (NFR) copies to practice your skills before walking into your clients’ offices.
In order to get started, though, there are five skills you and your staff must possess:
