    As you’ve probably noticed, most of our guests so far have been alumni from the Talent Stacker Program. And while programs like Talent Stacker can be a huge help on your journey to Salesforce, it’s certainly not the only way to get there. For some, opting for the DIY path might be a more suitable choice – no costs, no coaches, you set the pace. But what does that look like, and how does it compare to following a program?
     
    In this week’s episode, Zach Bremer shows us that you can go from having no background in tech to landing a Salesforce job in under a year with nothing but free resources and a lot of determination.
