Construction of a Salesforce Tower is in the works. The goal for completion is 2017, and this is where the magic of Salesforce will take place upon completion.
In addition to learning the techniques to close deals, salespeople of Salesforce are also faced with contemplative tasks like, “Brainstorm about how you would like your best-referenced customers to describe you." Think about what would be valued by customers and their business, and then do your best to meet this goal. This is how achievement is made.

We will better meet the needs of consumers, if we understand their story. It's how to better understand the perspective and ever-growing demographic.
I have found success with Salesforce by taking the time to get to know people’s story. I feel this is important because by understanding our pasts and weaving them into the future of Salesforce, we will better be able to meet the needs of consumers.
By learning the story of all that I encounter, I equip himself with the perspectives, ideas, and experiences of an ever-growing demographic. Salesforce prides itself on the idea that this business is a marathon, not a sprint. Over the course of the marathon I will encounter many occurrences, obstacles and experience that will shape your salesmanship and entrepreneurship. These lessons have shaped me and shaped the company.
