What to Do If You're Embarrassed by Your Salesforce Skills

Are you a Salesforce end user who is embarrassed by your Salesforce skills?

Every day I hear from regular business people...the folks who are in Sales, Marketing, Customer Service and Operations.

Here's what they tell me:
  • "I'm expected to use Salesforce, yet I haven't been trained!"
  • "I'm struggling to track prospects, customers, tasks and deals in Salesforce. When I ask my manager for help...he asks me to talk to some incompetent colleague who just shrugs his shoulders at me."
  • "We used to be on Salesforce Classic...now my company rolled out Lightning Experience. No training. Nothing. I'm lost. Instead, I'm using Excel and I hate it!"
  • "I'm sick and tired of searching Google and YouTube..only to find that most of the materials I come across are for Administrators and Developers. What about the end users?!"
  • "I'm starting to worry that my Salesforce skills are impacting my career. I'm concerned!"
  • "I need to change the trajectory of my career. If I don't learn Salesforce I'll never find another job."
I hear you. I get it.

I've been trying to address this pain by:
  • sharing cool Salesforce resources on social media, 
  • blogging about tons of FREE resources to help end users,
  • encouraging end user to join local user groups,
  • educating people about:
    • Trailhead, 
    • Salesforce's Getting Started documentation, 
    • Salesforce's YouTube channel, 
  • hosting webinars, podcasts and many local community events to teach people about Salesforce.
But...guess what.... It's not enough. You know why?

People need coaching, hand-holding and structure..the free content is great, but it feels like playing "whack-a-mole" just to keep up with everything.

This is precisely why I've just announced my LIVE SALESFORCE BOOTCAMP for end users. For just $1,498, you will get:
