15.0: Happy customers equal to brand ambassadors | Joachim Schreiner
Forcepreneur is 1-year old. Thank you to all the listeners and people who have supported me along the way. For this special episode, I wanted to have someone from Salesforce and I am glad that Joachim agreed to be a guest. He is currently the GM and EVP of Salesforce Germany and Austria. In this episode I want to highlight the fact that you don't need to be a founder to be an entrepreneur. Joachim joined Salesforce in 2007 when they just had 8-10 people. He is now leading a team of 1000+ "customers" and offices in every major German city plus Vienna. This to me is also entrepreneurial. Joachim's mantra is very simple: create Happy Customers (and employees) and they will do the rest for you. Listen to the episode and let me know what you think.

12.0: Your are unique, go show it to the world! | Ines Garcia
If you are in the Salesforce ecosystem, if it will be hard to for you to miss Ines. She calls herself "the mad scientist" and rightly so. She is a consultant, book author, card-game developer, pluralsight course author, agile enthusiast and LGBTQIA+ ally. Ines is someone who completely embodies the Solopreneur spirit. Just like myself, she is a Solopreneur because she wants to have the freedom to do the things she wants to do (read the list above). What I found most interesting during our discussion is, she does not like to be labelled or pigeon-holed into one box. Life has so much to offer, why just be one thing.

10: You are your own MVP
If you have been active in the Salesforce eco-system for a while, I am pretty sure you have seen the recent rise of Spekit and it's founder Melanie Fellay. She is a true force of nature. She is not only changing how organisations learn and adopt Salesforce but also empowering other women entrepreneurs to go ahead and start their own journeys. What I most love about them is providing employment in Pakistan. That place is full of talented individuals and is quite an untapped market. It gives me immense joy to see them taking the initiative.

4.0: Be honest to your job.
If you don't find a great place to work, where your contribution is truly appreciated; You start something of your own and treat your employees like you wish you were treated. Abhinav introduced revolutionary things like 5-day working / week, paid holiday and revenue share for developers by starting his company Concretio. They might seem normal to you, depending where you are in the world, but back in India, in a small city like Jaipur, these things were unheard of. Listen to the episode and let us know in comments what do you think.
