    Earn $70k a Year While Still In School As a Salesforce Professional

    Earn $70k a Year While Still In School As a Salesforce Professional

    Think back to the last part-time job you had when you were in college. Chances are, you probably were not earning much at the time.
    But what if you could be making at least $35 an hour as a Salesforce administrator, while going to college? Or even more amazing, working as a Salesforce professional without a 4-year college degree?
    Our guests today are Tucker Gartner, Eric Kogan, and Patrick Amis, who got certified as Salesforce administrators and launched their careers before getting their 4-year degrees. One of them even got started back in high school!
    If you know someone who might want to explore an alternative to the 4-year-college path that would still land them a high-paying job, this episode is one they need to tune into!
    Handy Timestamps:
     
    5:13: How Nathan, Eric, and Patrick made the decision between a Salesforce career and college.
    8:20: Knowing what they know now, what might they tell their younger selves about going to college?
    12:40: How they dealt with ageism for being so young in the corporate world.
    17:05: How long it took them to earn a 6-figure salary.
    21:40: How their parents reacted when they guys revealed that they were going to take a path less traveled and pursue a Salesforce career?
    27:30: What advice they may have for others who aspire to start Salesforce at an early age, but who are afraid of going against societal norms.

    Welcome to Series 2 of the Show!

    Welcome to Series 2 of the Show!

    If you want to be inspired by and to replicate the success of people who made successful career pivots into Salesforce, you are going to love Series 2 of the show.
     
    From healthcare providers and educators, to blue collar workers and veterans, we celebrate every single win on the show.
     
    We even have stay-home parents who have decided to go back to work, despite not having worked for a long time. Some of our guests are crushing Salesforce careers even though they do not have 4-year degrees.
     
    When we say Salesforce is for everyone, we MEAN it, and our guests in this series prove it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
     
    We almost wanted to call it the "How They Did It and How You Can Too" series, but thought twice since we will also have plenty of great Q&A episodes.
     
    To ask your own questions, hit us up on LinkedIn, our Facebook Group, email at ask@talentstacker.com, and new for us, via voicemail at talentstacker.com/voicemail.
