David’s note: This is what I live for buddy. Congrats!
In 2016 I turned 50, lost my house, job, business, and marriage. I earned $17,000 that year and was homeless for the next 18 months, couch hopping for most of that time. A friend told me about Vetforce, and after Vetforce I found SFDC99.com and David Liu.
Today, I’m one test away from being a double architect, and I have multiplied my 2016 salary by 12. I now have a consulting business and a main gig as a Principal System Analyst at a pharmaceutical company.
At one point, David comped my access to his class series. His guidance on certifications was the blueprint for the 14 certs I’ve rolled up in the last four plus years. Without David’s encouragement, his blueprint, and ALL OF THE ADJUSTMENTS to that blueprint as the admin/BA/architect space has changed in the last five years, I do not know where I might be today: thoroughly debt free, new business, great career, and each and every day I get to help cure cancer with a CRM system. No wasted days.
Can’t thank you enough.

This is just to know some more information
Yes that’s all nice and cute but let me tell you, I know someone that is 50+ GREAT salesforce knowledge and experience but can’t find a job as an admin after soooo many interviews. it is crazy that age is so easy to discriminate upon and every company gets away with it. So yes when I see stories like this, its good to read but there is a context here that is obvious and not applicable to everyone. VETFORCE is for Veterans and my friend is not a veteran. Good for anonymous though!!!
Admin jobs are disappearing, got a video on this. Not surprising honestly! This story follows a different path
An inspiring story and this makes me to go further in SFDC and yes David he is an awesome soul. After listen to some of his advise together with his stories, I made up my mind too, career in salesforce that I can relied on for for the next 10 years. after 18 year in traditional IT support, I went into Salesforce domain in year 2019 as aspirant and I don’t regretted at all.
