The Best of Lightning Round

November 23, 2017 mikegerholdt

Today on the Salesforce Admins Podcast we’re taking a look back at some of the best Lightning Rounds of the past year.

Join us to learn which mascot comes out on top, all the different things people keep on their desk to be productive, and all the different things that let us know when it’s time for… the Lightning Round!

You should subscribe for the full episode, but here’s all the weird and interesting factoids we learned from taking a plunge into the Lightning Round.

It’s Time for… the Lightning Round

After interviewing guest after guest about their amazing stories and all the different ways that people have come to the Admin life and put their skills to good use. While these stories are always amazing, our favorite part of any interview has to be the Lightning Round, where three simple questions get to the heart of what makes someone tick. Here are some highlights from the past year:

  1. Davina Hanchuck talks about the wonderful hiking in Salt Lake City, why Meta Moose is her favorite Trailhead mascot, and why leveraging group knowledge is key for working with a team on Optimizing Lightning.
  2. On the WITness Success episode, Jean Velonis shares her struggles with formulas and documentation, why the Equality and Ally badges are so amazing, and why printing out pictures can make you super productive (if you still have a printer, unlike Mike).
  3. Katherine Clark shares that Codey is her favorite mascot, why gymnastics is her can’t-miss Olympic sport, and the secret behind her productivity (hint, it’s coffee) in the episode about her amazing story, From the USS Reuben James to Salesforce Admin.
  4. It just happened to rain during our conversation with Barry Roberts, which we recorded outside for The Power of Persistence so this was truly a Lightning Round to remember.

Make sure to stick around to the end, where we have an extra special Super Mega Lightning Round within a Lightning Round (total lightning-ception) to learn all about Mike’s love for Crazy Aaron’s Super Thinking Putty.

We want to get your suggestions for guests on the podcast, and we need your help! So tweet your guest suggestions, support, etc. to @SalesforceAdmns to help us get more Awesome Admins on the podcast.

We want to remind you that if you love what you hear, or even if you don’t head on over to Apple Podcasts and give us a review. It’s super easy to do, and it helps more Admins find the podcast. Plus, we would really appreciate it.
