Every number you’ve ever heard is a lie.
2020 David: descent into madness??
Thanks that was awesome. Got me thinking!
Do you have a personal Instagram I can ask you direct questions on, hope your well and thriving my man!!!
Lol yea you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much!!!
David, I think this is a great way to look at data and numbers. People can spin numbers in many different ways to tell the story they want. Like you said, specifically when they are using this number as a motivator to move you towards the actions they want.
I think that is why it is so important to ask challenging questions to really get the true insight out of numbers. Like you said, 20% increase in customer satisfaction is great….but is it really? The important question you mentioned is what was the new overall customer satisfaction percentage. Asking this second level questions, probing for true meaning, and looking at numbers from all sides, is what allows us to get the truth and really gain insight from data.
This was a great video and I loved it! I have followed quite a few of your videos. I was intrigued by your comment on Salesforce salaries. You have said in your previous videos, even most recent one as “Don’t learn Salesforce” that the average Salesforce person makes 150k a year. In the cases of those videos you are selling learning Salesforce.
I have found that a lot of people encouraging individuals to pursue Salesforce throw out those high salaries. Even Mason Frank surveys claim higher salaries than I believe what most regions are paying. Like you said, how skewed is this data and how misleading is it for someone getting into Salesforce.
I think with anything, experience is key. Yes, learning new skills is always going to make you more valuable and employable. But to get those higher paying six figure salaries, I think it often times takes more than learning a new skill. More than learning Salesforce, apex, java. They want to see on the job experience before they are paying someone 150k. I would love to hear your thoughts on this as I think this is something people always weigh when learning any new skills. What will the immediate return be.
As you suspected this video is not just a criticism of the industry but a criticism of myself too
The answer to your question IMO is to make decisions not just on numbers but on other factors / personal research too. Ex: is Salesforce fun for you? Do you have people in your network you can talk to? Do you see a lot of jobs in your area? Etc etc
As for experience, that is something easy to game too lol. Maybe a future video!
David, I love your insight! I also love your honesty and ability to look at things from different perspectives!
You’re absolutely right, experience is easy to game to Lol. Would love to see you do a video on that! You the man!
Hi David, I must say that your new video postings are very interesting and balsy at times, but I like it :) You are spot on with your numbers conclusion. There are so many assumptions in all statistics and none of the assumptions are ever provided to the consumer. If it was, it would uncover the deception behind the statistics. Most people don’t realize this at all which can be so detrimental to our country, economy and the world.
Thanks Barb lol
