I Want to Be a VAR When I Grow Up

With so much change in the ERP marketplace and turmoil in the channel over the last few years, it seemed like a good time to dust off an oldie but goodie – the Channel Champions video on YouTube that was posted several years ago.

It’s a humorous look at the challenges of working in the channel and selling technology solutions, all through the eyes of some kids sharing their dreams of the future.

Some favorite lines from the video which all start with “when I grow up …”

  • I want everyone I meet to ask me what’s a V-A-R?
  • I want to have executives from multi-billion dollar manufacturers, with unlimited resources, tell me how to run my business
  • I want to fill out hundreds of RFP’s per month
