@JessL ,


Happy Thanksgiving 🦃 to you!


In my day I touch data often.  I'm relentless in my pursuit of code-free ways to make magic happen (4).gif


I try to use the magic of Alteryx to make things happen.  I've learned so much by using and helping other's to use Alteryx that analytics in my day looks like I'm with friends in the Magic Kingdom.  I know the rides so well and like to experiment and find new paths to insights.  It isn't all about the end as much as it is the journey (means to the end) that matters.


I enjoy the challenge as much as the accomplishment.  Advice that you can use is to explore your data more thoroughly and look for the nuggets that exist.  The can be needles (a bad thing) or gold.  Don't simply follow instructions but be an analytics adventurer.
