In today's episode, we speak with USA-based Founder of the Salesforce consulting business, Carabiner Group, Seamus Ruiz-Earle. Seamus has a very interesting story, having challenged a number of obstacles that many initially find, either when starting out their careers, or building a business. It was inspiring to hear how Seamus first secured the opportunity to work on Salesforce projects and build on his skills and experience, and how circumstances led him to launch his own business. Seamus shares how the model he developed for Carabiner Group differs from the standard consulting model, how this retained model works, and the pain points that their point of difference addresses for their clients. We talk about scaling a business, the approach that he takes to hiring talent, and how he introduces students to the Salesforce ecosystem and accelerates their learning. Seamus shares insights into the period that it takes for new hires to ramp up, and the tasks and responsibilities that they take ownership of. Finally, we discuss his plans for the future and how he sees Carabiner Group evolving and growing. This episode will be useful to people who are interested in finding out more about becoming a part of the Salesforce ecosystem, whether currently studying or working, plus those considering starting their own business.
