Here at SQL Sentry we're a really community-focused bunch of people. A number of us speak at PASS Summit and other community tech events, and others are volunteers. Some time back, John Sansom asked a number of Database Professionals, including my good friend and colleague Kevin Kline, the question: "If you could give a DBA just one piece of advice, what would it be?"

This resulted in a free eBook that you can download from John's website. If you want to get a head start on becoming a data professional, then this is a good place to go.
