I’ve been telling people to learn to code since 2013.
Learning to code in Salesforce changed my life. It unlocked so much opportunity for me and it’s the best thing to ever happen in my career. I’m grateful to all my mentors who helped me in this journey.
But choosing the coding path is not for everyone. As much as I’d love EVERYONE to learn to code and start making $150,000+ a year, the reality is most people won’t finish the journey.
To help you understand what you’re getting yourself into if you’re considering this path, here are all the negatives of learning to code in Salesforce, including:
And well, if you still want to learn to code after hearing all this… maybe you do have what it takes to see this journey through. I hope learning to code changes your life like it has changed mine.

Which Salesforce career path is right for you?
I made a 23 question personality quiz based on my experiences working directly as or with all the main Salesforce career paths. Learn which path is the best match for your personality and what type of jobs you should be looking for.
Then, stick around for my analysis of the seven possible Salesforce career paths including administrator, developer, and technical architect. If you’ve taken the previous version of this quiz, it’s worth another pass as this test is longer, more accurate, and more granular with the results.
Hope you enjoy!
There’s an odd trend that has been going on the past few years.
There are fewer and fewer Salesforce administrator jobs in the market. While demand for Salesforce is at all-time high, Lightning has changed how companies use Salesforce. Instead of hiring admins, companies are hiring other Salesforce professionals instead.
If I look at companies around me, they’re hiring 10 – 20 Salesforce developers for each admin position. This just wasn’t the case five years ago.

Alright this one’s not about Salesforce but it’s an interesting story.
Plus, I talk about how I prepared for a Salesforce developer interview at the hardest company in the world to get a job offer at. Yes even more difficult than Google!

Managers are these soul-less creatures and you can’t talk to them normally like you would with a reasonable person like me. Don’t talk to your manager again until you’ve watched this video!
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
…but do you actually love Salesforce? Do you enjoy being an admin, developer, or architect?
In this video I analyze whether or not you need to love your job to be successful. If you do, how do you find the right career path? And if not, what should you be looking for instead?
