I teach Cloud Computing and AI.
I am passionate about helping you become a 'Creator in a Consumption World'
I gravitate towards tools and tech that empower the non-technical to build and create amazing things online.
That is why I was drawn to amazing tools and platforms, such as Salesforce, ChatGPT and more.
After Thousands of Udemy Survey ratings for my courses, the students have spoken:
"Are you learning valuable information?" 99.6% answered YES
"Are the explanations of the concepts clear?" 99.8% answered YES
"Is the instructor knowledgeable about the topic?" 99.9% answered YES
Before discovering Salesforce, I worked as a Technical Writer, Trainer, and built blogs using Wordpress. Once I found Salesforce, I saw it as the quickest path to building world-class web and mobile applications for businesses and consumers.
I've attained 9 Salesforce Certifications along the way: Force Developer (retired), Salesforce Administrator, Salesforce Business Analyst, Salesforce Associate, Salesforce AI Associate, Salesforce Advanced Administrator, Salesforce Sales Cloud Consultant, Salesforce Service Cloud Consultant, Salesforce Platform App Builder.
I am the founder of Mike Wheeler Media, where my mission is to Train, Inspire, and Equip YOU for a Cloud Career.

Here is my recommended Salesforce Certification Path, for those of you just starting out, with no prior development experience.
1. Salesforce Certified Associate
2. Salesforce Certified AI Associate (course coming soon)
3. Salesforce Certified Administrator
4. Salesforce Business Analyst or Salesforce Platform App Builder
From here, depending on your desired route, if you wish to become a developer, I'd recommend you next take the Platform App Builder certification and then Platform Developer 1.
Other routes would be that of a Consultant (Sales Cloud and/or Service Cloud) or Advanced Admin, or Architect.
For those of you with prior development experience, you can start at either Platform App Builder or Platform Developer I. Please note that it is always a good idea to at some point grow strong on the fundamentals of the platform to round out your understanding of Salesforce, such as attaining the Admin and/or Associate certifications.
