👋🏻Hi Sales Hacker! My name's Ben McCarthy AKA Salesforce Ben. I've been a Salesforce Professional for 10 years, and have held a variety of roles in the ecosystem. Most recently, I grew a Salesforce Consultancy from 0 to $2.5M in revenue in 4 years over here in the UK. It was an amazing ride, and I've released an eBook & Template Pack called "Secrets to Building a Salesforce Consultancy" to help the next generation of founders and freelancers.

I'm partnering with the Sales Hacker community for a Q&A live stream event where I'd love to answer any questions you have about Salesforce consulting, freelancing, or anything you would like to ask about Salesforce in general. Looking forward to hearing from you, and I'll make sure to get back to every single question.
