A Salesforce trail guide for your next ascent

 

I help develop Salesforce professionals (and partners) so you can have more opportunity and satisfaction from your work. Leveraging my 20 years of leading productive (and happy!) teams, I share trail maps and tools to help aspiring partners, teams, trailblazers, and projects overcome obstacles.

Let’s take your consultancy or career to the next level.

 

Book Me

I'm a Salesforce architect who can connect with people and add value to your next event, podcast, publication, and more.

Ask Me

Even pros can get stumped or stymied by a Salesforce challenge. I can offer feedback, answers, or a second opinion to help you break through.

Let's Climb

Pushing to the next summit can be daunting. But you’re not alone. Join my academy and get the guidance you need.

Ready to Climb?

Let’s take your next step. Whether you’re a Salesforce developer ready to do more than code, a Salesforce partner who needs a better culture, or a Taskrabbit looking for a new direction.

Why Me?

I know Salesforce, I know business, and I know people. I’ve been in your shoes—I started out in tech working the night shift and learned the hard way that I needed more than technical skills.

 

"It's not about just learning a tech skill or growing a business, it’s about finding a meaningful purpose."
