A Letter to Another Great Inspire

Well it’s that bittersweet time of year again #Inspire19 is in the books and we say goodbye to the physical presence of the Alteryx community that we all love. This may have been my favorite Inspire yet because of the massive level of engagement that the dev team has provided to the members of the […]

my rACE track

My friend Brian Blevins has this theory about how you can size up what kind of people you are dealing with in a space. I heard it really early on in my journey with Alteryx and it has in almost everything that I do, sat in the front of my mind and I will explain […]

Championing Others Pt. 4

Part 3 In part 3, I mentioned that sometimes managers will block people’s movement because they are “too important” where they are at. What the hell kind of excuse is that?!? This frustrates me to no end.  Your great employees will make moves when they are ready whether you want them to or not. Once […]

Championing Others Pt. 3

In this capacity, they are different, I promise. Alright part 2! Let’s get going on this! It’s important to know, that I believe […]

Championing Others Pt. 1

It’s been a little while! The Thor: Ragnarok trailer came out in the last month and I have been pretty much watching that in my free time. (Don’t tell Disney this is on here, they will probably shut me down) I have talked a few times about how to be passionate and push yourself forward […]

Trading Lunches

Growing up, the hottest commodity on the ESLI (Elementary School Lunch Index) were Fruit Gummy Candy (Fruit by the Foot, Fruit Roll Up, Gushers (premium)), Go-Gurt, Kudos and String Cheese. If you walked into the lunch room ready to deal with one of these items you could do pretty well for yourself. If it was […]

I am 27

The fact that I am 27 puts me right there in the middle of what is the greatest generation (other than “The Greatest Generation”, those people fought Nazis and are awesome). Say what you will about millennials, but if you motivate us in the right way, we are going to do some crazy cool things. (I […]
