Breaking News: I'm a Newly Minted ClickUp Expert and Ambassador
I decided to leverage my headline as my tl;dr. How's that for saving time?
But if you want to know more...
I'm happy to announce that after 4 years of essentially living in ClickUp, making it my work/life operating system, and seeing the software through a few iterations, I've finally obtained my ClickUp Expert certification!
While ClickUp University is good, structured online training, having 4 years of experience with the tool helped me breeze through a lot of the exam. Not saying anyone will need 4 years (which when I think about it, sounds like a normal university timeframe...but trust me you don't need that much time!). However, working with ClickUp in a multitude of scenarios, use cases, and touching all of its features at some point comes in handy. The online training from ClickUp U just helps focus and refine the things you learned along the way, and can be completed in a week or two depending on experience and focus.
Despite the certificate aesthetics, it wasn't all unicorns and rainbows. The test was tricky in some parts, but not by any means grueling or in the vein of the PMP or SAFe exams. However, as I alluded, if you just created your ClickUp account last week, I wouldn't advise diving into the Expert exam. You need to have spent enough time with it to know its nuances, strengths, and its limitations. The most challenging part of the exam is that with ClickUp's mission to be the "one app to replace them all", there's a crazy long list of features to learn and develop mastery on. And they keep adding more! Version 3.0 is on its way.
So what? What's the big deal? Glad you asked.
Well for one, I'm considering offering services related to ClickUp. They will probably be offerings such as implementations, ongoing administration, and possibly trainings. It also means you're likely to see more ClickUp related content from me. After all, as the title of this post says, the good folks at ClickUp also made me a ClickUp Ambassador, one of many on a mission to spread the word, increase productivity, and save people time.
So stay tuned! I'm working on the best way to share what I know and want to offer as much value as possible through the new services and content. This may manifest itself in the forms of blog posts like these, and maybe even video.
In the meantime, if you need ClickUp help asap, go ahead and contact me. I'll happily give an "early bird special" before I launch the new services.
I'm really excited about getting started and working with you to plan & execute your ideas to help you win, now with ClickUp!
