It has been my pleasure to be part of DES 2016 Madrid and part of Salesforce Essentials 2016 Madrid, and Barcelona – That was a fun part of May / June this year, and the best of it is not just being in front of an audience to talk about what you have achieved so far and how great the products you are reviewing are, but the best is the journey where you learn and achieve something to talk about.
Becoming and advocate is not an easy path, it is about mastering at a product, service, tool, knowledge area…, so people listen how they can ease their journey thanks to your expertise. But expertise does not come easy. Before and while achieved (or sort of), it is the time to learn, watch, listen and re-imagine what is possible.

But what it really means for Salesforce to have advocates?
Another NAB Show is over for us and you can get a taste of it at the following video! Right after it, see the tips and tricks used to get ready for the interview!
After 1.5 years at VSN I have the feeling and I am certain that we are ready to take one step forward, but before that we need our sales people aligned, and have a great 2016. Bonus track, see below the video to learn how align a marketing and a Sales Team.

After following Steli at Close.io for some time it is time to actually recommend him out loud.
Steli is the guy that sends me an e-mail every day (Sat and Sun included) at 2pm CEST – or what’s the same, 9am EDT (NYC time) – to shoot me with a quote that will push my day forward. Continue reading

Every job starts with Day One (DO) and that day will define what you want to accomplish the following 90 and, hopefully, the following 365. Here I will explain how I approached my most recent first 90 days in the company that I currently work for. 239 days and counting.
In my recent experience at VSN I had the time to enjoy every of those first days with an overall outlook at how I can be aligned with the company goals and help the company grow.
