Finally I have done a collab with Salesforce Ben, blogger, Co-Founder and CRO at Nymble!
He and I have been buddies since the early days when we started our blogs and shared our tips with each other. Ben’s a shining gem in our industry – it’s really an honor for me to finally do a talk alongside him. I learned a lot listening to him here and I hope you do too!
A big thank you to Brian Shea for the idea, hosting it, and for the Salesforce Freelance Podcast!
