I am from a family that had a certain class, enjoyed certain privileges, ecetera, ecetera. I said that to say this…It’s pretty hard to “impress” me. There’s no home that I’ve personally seen and entered, no car, no wardrobe that has ever blown me away. Being in business has been somewhat different in that, I am moved by the characteristic and quality of technology. There is always some new product, new service or gear that literally takes my breath away.
#Salesforce is one of those products. Just over one year ago I didn’t really have a clue as to what Salesforce was…but one day I was reading my San Francisco Business Times, it mentioned a company that purchased 700,000 sq. ft of space for a building that is not even erected yet! Well that piqued my curiosity. There began my search. Of course I started with an online search, then called Salesforce and connected with a salesperson, was permitted to use the product on a trial basis…and today fully knowledgeable or getting there.
This is NOT a commercial for Salesforce because I don’t do that without compensation. It merely is to say how fascinated I am with the growth of the technology industry. This is something, that 30 years ago, we were unaccustomed to; the rapidity. Because I manage a technology company, most things involving technology has this unique power over me; I am charmed and my interest is aroused.
By the way, the only company that I would do a free commercial for is #BlackBerry. They have long since lost their grip with consumers, but are still the device of choice for many governments. Ok, back to my point…I’m fascinated by all things tech!
