1. Two truths and one lie about you!

  • I won a 4:30 minute plank challenge
  • I was still in the lavatory when my airplane landed in Auckland
  • I nearly drowned in a 30 centimetre pool once

2. Why is community important to you? What motivates you to contribute?

The community is important to me because it’s a great place to support my fellow hubbers and be supported. Most of us are solo admins and it’s so important to feel a part of a community. That’s why I contribute and support as much as I can.

1. Two truths and a lie about you!

  • I love watching tv/movies and often quote my favorites.
  • I love automating things! My life philosophy is “work smarter not harder”!
  • I was a programmer in a former life.

2. Why is community important to you? What motivates you to contribute?

I had a bit of a rocky start with Salesforce, and didn’t actually find out about the community until almost 6 months after our implementation. I immediately subscribed to a bunch a groups to try and wrap my arms about what exactly I had gotten myself into. I went to my first user group meeting the following week where SteveMo was speaking and had an “AH HA” moment, things finally clicked. I dived headfirst into Salesforce learning everything I could, asking questions when I hit a snag and answering questions where I could.

Now I have a lot of friends in the community who I love, but also I want to help others have that “AH HA” moment and be successful with Salesforce. If I can save others the frustration I felt, I will feel very accomplished. In the Hub a lot of folks are not only solo admins but accidental admins so they really need the community to be their Salesforce team and support. I could have never imagined how being an active member in this wonderful and supportive community would change my life. So many great humans in one place which is so rare. I just want to pay that forward so others can experience it the way I have.
