About

Welcome to Some Magic Nuggets!

Hi there, my name is DA and I'm the creator of Some Magic Nuggets and a tech lead focusing on the Salesforce platform at a tech company in Silicon Valley.

I started building Some Magic Nuggets in May 2021, while I'm in my current position. The inspiration for the blog and newsletter came after a close friend in the Salesforce ecosystem called my career advice "some magic nuggets of wisdom" after landing her new job. Hearing this set my mind to wander. If my friends and colleagues are negotiating great offers and are enjoying success in their roles, other people in this ecosystem might be able to as well! The rest is history.

How my blog will help you

The purpose of my work on Some Magic Nuggets is to help you make the most out of your Salesforce career. At the end of the day, if my posts help you make more money and enjoy your job, I'll be happy. The blog will cover:

  • the ins and outs of negotiating your Salesforce compensation
  • how to handle your interviews 
  • how to thrive in the age of remote
  • how I interview and 
  • the lessons of my mistakes and failures

and more!

My ideas aren't new. They're not rocket science. What they'll do is arm you with practical advice you can use to advance your Salesforce career.
