When a Salesforce career comes full circle...
Before I begin, there's something to learn in this post about CPQ. But of course since I like to tell stories, there needs to be a little background first. Then.... At my first real admin job where Salesforceing (it's a verb) was 100% of my job, I had to find a tool that would allow... Continue Reading →
How I Privatized A Single Custom Field
As a consultant, you get a lot of weird requests that make you scratch your head and wonder "can I really do this with Salesforce", and sometimes even "why the F would they want to do that, that's ridiculous.

Coming Full Circle
Most of my posts are centered around (what I feel is) humor mixed into goofy gifs and pictures. This one will be a bit more serious. May 4, 2016 I went to my first PhillyForce annual event, which was also my first Salesforce event and my first tech event. After spending 10 years in sales, I... Continue Reading →
My First Real World Lightning App
We have all seen and heard the craze about Salesforce Lightning, it is striking EVERYWHERE. When I first saw lightning last summer, it got a big "NOPE" tag because of the vertical navigation bar.
