  • Feeling Fulfilled at School

    13/11/2020 Duración: 08min

    I've been thinking more about getting back into podcasting lately, so I thought this would be a nice start.  A couple weeks ago I listened to the Design Better Podcast featuring Seth Godin. The episode was incredible. One thing Seth said stood out to me. Paraphrasing, he says that "everyone should have a blog and write everyday".  Being someone who likes to write, I thought this would be an interesting experiment. I'm about two weeks into writing everyday, have written three times, and thought I would share one of my entries and expand on it here.  Continue to see new things,  Ben

Tim's humor and hardworking nature are contagious, and had me laughing the entire interview. His passion for Salesforce and impacting the world through Now IT Matters shows, and I am excited to continue to learn about the possibilities with Salesforce and non-profits.  It is fun for me to have different guests and hear these different stories.
