Pat Solum was introduced to the strange wonderful mistress that is Salesforce in 2009 when he accepted a position as a Marketing Director and was told the great lie many of us were told.
“We are putting in Salesforce but don’t worry it will only be about 10% of your job.”
He found out very quickly it was his absolute favorite part of his job.
Patrick resides in South Dakota with his wife and 4 kids (I know right) and is the first and only resident Salesforce MVP of that fine state. South Dakota boasts 3 seasons. Too hot, too cold and May. Its like Minnesota except with less Vikings fans and less to do.
His advice to others getting into the Salesforce Ohana is simple:
This will change your life.
Introduce yourself. Get to know everyone you can.
Ask for help.
Always be nice.
Most of all have fun and do amazing things.
