In the fifth episode of the SFDC Consultant Podcast, we had a discussion with Emma Keeling, a Salesforce Consultant about her career path, covering details about the risks involved in this ecosystem, the Salesforce Ohana, and the main differences between being a freelancer and working for a consultancy. Emma started her solo-consultancy in the last 6 months and she is opening up about her decision-making process and risks she considered.
“Know the risk and know how much money you need to earn to be able to survive. You always need to have that very bottom-dollar understanding. When you get into this, it’s very easy to do non-billable hours, because at the end of the day you wont bill for every hour spent working. You have to have time to do things like study for certifications or know about the latest release.”Emma Keeling
