Gang. I know this is not the time to feel frustrated about the little things.
The world is going through an unprecedented moment of danger, grief, and loss. Our essential workers and first responders are doing some of the hardest work of their lives. We all know someone, personally or through loved ones, who is struggling or already lost to the coronavirus. Not to mention all the people we know who have taken severe hits financially, having lost their livelihoods one way or another.
A lot of us Salesforce peeps are shifting our org strategy right now. For good reasons.
But while we’re getting into crisis-response-mode for our orgs, it may be worth evaluating how we’re personally handling things too. What can we be doing as Salesforce professionals to either develop further, build connections, or just plain distract ourselves from the chaos that’s currently happening?
Everyone’s in rapid response mode right now.
Nonprofits are scrambling to keep their programs running. On a personal level, many of us are bracing for what’s to come with this pandemic. So it’s really no surprise that the org database is the last thing on anyone’s mind…except for us.
By “us”, I mean anyone who leads on data or systems thinking for a nonprofit: database coordinators, Salesforce admins, accidental admins, data managers, and the lot.
If all this corona chaos is making you rethink your office job, you may now be part of a very large club.
Remote work has grown more popular in recent years. Personally, I don’t know that it’s my preference. Still, none of us imagined that being able to work from home could mean the difference between making a living or being unemployed. Or getting sick.
And yet, that’s the reality so many of us are living today.
For those of us who still have jobs, this new normal requires many of us to work from home for the very first time.
Which is something to be grateful for. Not needing to risk our health, being free to exercise our civic duty to slow the spread, all while getting a paycheck….is a wonderful thing.
Okay gang! If your nonprofit has been using Pardot for a while, or just getting started, or maybe even considering it for your org….let’s talk resources.
Pardot (par-DOT) is an email platform by Salesforce geared towards B2B organizations. While that may not sound like your nonprofit, Pardot tends to be the more common Salesforce email platform among our sector.
