Salesforce MVP “Alum” : End of the Road?
It's that time of year again, when the Salesforce MVP nominations and renewals are announced for the year. Every year since i've had the honor of being an MVP, I noticed that the day after nominations there was a flood of social media posts. Many are very positive and congratulatory, some, not so much, but... Continue Reading →
Well, I went there. Its been a bit since ive written in (on?) this blog, so let me catch you up a bit. I joined a leading, global, quote to cash Salesforce Partner (rhymes with HIMplus), and frankly, I loved it. I got to flex my CPQ muscles a bit, but quickly realized I didn't... Continue Reading →

This is a good....and bad thing. As all CPQ admins... Continue Reading →

My 2017: A Year Of Growth & Community
First and foremost, I haven't written a solid post in close to 3-4 months. Crazy, right? The time off from the blog wasn't intentional, but with how busy things got, it was close to impossible to focus on the blog. But instead of just catching up with what happened in the last few months, i've... Continue Reading →
