ToDavid Maffeiday Dave Maffei from Carbonite joins the show to talk about his recent guest column in ChannelPro magazine entitled Three Tips for Serving the New Generation of SMB Owners. Dave outlines the sorts of disconnect that can occur between millennials and baby boomers and offers ways for managed service providers to address them.

Dave also talks about Carbonite’s partner program. He says there are “no handcuffs on the reseller with Carbonite”. He says there are a number of options in how the relationship between Carbonite, the reseller, and the end-user can be. Dave encourages MSPs to check out their partner website.
