Moving ahead

With last week’s post being such a hit (thank you to everyone who shared), I struggled to choose which of my on-deck posts would be the appropriate follow-up to a call for more volunteerism. Nothing felt right. Now, I know that my posts don’t necessarily need to have a flow to them, but I like to get some consistency to what I write about.

And then I got to thinking about what’s going on with the world this week, and had a bit of a lightbulb moment. Post-election, what the United States needs to focus on is uniting and moving forward as one, and not focusing on our differences, but all the things we have in common. But what’s that got to do with Salesforce?

Hello…is it me you’re looking for?

Yowzah! It’s been two months since I’ve blogged. I have never gone that long without posting. Maybe a week here or there, but two months – unacceptable!

I have to say I’ve been pretty busy. Between a trip to Tahoe to ride 100 miles for cancer research, planning a Salesforce User Group meeting, having a friend come to town for a visit, a national holiday, prepping six sessions for Dreamforce – oh, and starting a new job & getting ready for their sales kickoff – yeah, the plate has been a bit full. Not that I’m complaining – the past few weeks have been great. Just that blogging isn’t the top of my list. (To be fair, I had 3 guest posts line up and all three flaked on me – you know who you are!)

So while this isn’t a content-rich post, I just want to say that I’m here, I’m still doing Salesforce stuff and there will be an honest to goodness real post next week. Thanks for sticking around & keeping me company!

Acquisition Engine!

Earlier this week, the internet was a buzz with the news that Salesforce had entered into an agreement to buy Radian6 – a “social media monitoring platform.”  But with all the flurry on that acquisition, I was shocked that there wasn’t more talk about how else Salesforce is extending their reach & expanding on what ‘cloud’ computing really means.

Apologies

I was planning on writing an entry on the difficulties that come with a new job & learning an entirely new instance of Salesforce, but with all the craziness of my new job, I’ve run out of time. Shoulda seen that one coming…

I’ll be brief & say that while starting anywhere is tough, coming into a role where you can potentially be touching every single aspect of the business process is incredibly overwhelming. You quickly go from being the person that has all the answers to knowing nothing, and it can potentially be very frustrating. The real trick is to rely on what you do know inside and out (the platform), and let all the rest come with time.

To all of us who are starting a new chapter in our Salesforce journeys, I wish us all the best of luck. And to all of my readers, I promise a better post next week. Thanks for bearing with me while I transition!
