In February 2017, this group of Houston Salesforce Users started monthly #SalesforceSaturday meet-ups in Cypress for some Salesforce therapy and “me-time.” We strive to inspire and motivate each other; share stories, ideas, and career advice; collaborate on Salesforce certification study techniques; and learn together by working in Trailhead.
We have been meeting at area Panera Restaurants, but are looking for a larger home, even if it means subjecting the group to my cooking, lol.

I enjoy Salesforce Saturday’s because Salesforce is my jungle gym and the meet ups allows me to play with everyone else too!!
I enjoy going to Salesforce Saturday because it’s a great place to share ideas, ask for help, find a study buddy, and make friends.
A long-time Trailhead Addict, I started a Salesforce Saturday after I heard Steph Herrera at a User Group Leader’s Office Hours meeting. I thought it was a great idea, and she basically put a seed in my head that said, “if you build it, they will come.” So I created a Success Community and posted on Twitter – it worked! We have a core group that meets and I look forward to our time together every month! Since then, I’ve started a Meetup group and a Twitter handle and we welcome new members every month. I love helping people make connections with other group members or businesses looking for connections within our community!
I LOVE #SalesforceSaturday – it’s my favorite day of the week. I already had some mad Trailhead love, and Salesforce Saturday is my way to share it with Houston. It’s gotten to be more than Trailhead. Each time we meet, we catch up, find out what’s going on in everyone’s world, and we’ve gotten to be friends. I look forward to our Saturdays, even if we just spend time talking about our certifications, where we’ve gone to find study materials, and where we’ve had successes at work. Sometimes someone has a problem, and another member may decide to jump on it right there. I love when I see two members who are working on something together decide to meet outside of our group to come up with a solution to a problem one of them is having. That’s when I know I have made real connections, not just for myself, but other people. And connections are what Community and #Ohana are all about.
“As a newcomer to the Salesforce ecosystem, Salesforce Saturday was my first Salesforce meeting in the Houston community. It was the perfect setting to casually discuss everything Salesforce and work on trailhead! I’ve learned a lot from this group and I am so thankful for their support in my young Salesforce career.
