Bradley is known as the highest-paid Salesforce Freelance Administrator in the world! He is the owner of Honest IT, LLC, and the Creator of the BradForce YouTube Channel and BradForce SF Career Development Courses. He has been a Salesforce Consultant for over 10 years and has owned his own Salesforce Independent Consulting Business for 5 years. He understands the ins and outs of the Salesforce Consulting world. He first started his own company when he and his wife decided to have a child. He knew that he no longer wanted to work from 8 am to 5 pm and do all of the work while his employer made all of the money. He wanted to own his career, dictate his own schedule, decide on his own hours, and be in control of his future. He now works an average of 15-20 hours/week and made $225,000 last year alone! Freelancing has allowed him to make more money and spend more time doing what he loves. Most recently he has now developed his knowledge surrounding Salesforce Career Development into a series of courses helping beginners to land their first jobs and for skilled professionals to level up into strong 6 figure incomes as well as begin to freelance on the side or full-time.
