Here’s the NetSuiteSuiteWorld17 Opening Keynote with Jim McGeever. It also features some insights into the acquisition and plan for NetSuite moving forward from Oracle CEO Mark Hurd. As a Certified NetSuite ERP Consultant, I’m excited about continued growth of NetSuite, and what Oracle can provide in fostering that growth. Personally, as in line with everything you see below, I consider it an exciting time to be a part of NetSuite as an employee, partner or customer.
Although, I’ll be honest. I think NetSuite/Oracle really missed a great opportunity to have one of their own PS Consultants rap in the opening.
My dad, Mark Laesch, is battling ALS. He was diagnosed earlier this year. Golfweek captured, very well, how his positive attitude, determination and faith have driven him through this tough battle. I’ve witnessed it first hand, and it has been incredible. I’m very proud of my dad. I’m very proud of everything his done with Golfstat and everything he has done in life. He has always been a man that does not cut corners. He does things right and he works hard. He lives by a strong moral code, guided by his faith and upbringing. I am and will always be very proud to call him my dad.
Please check out Golfweek‘s article below. Can’t thank Golfweek enough for putting this together:
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody. Thankful I get to spend some time with my family and thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given in life. Gotta keep going. Here’s to continued growth, health, prosperity and humility.
The 2016 Chicago Cubs are World Series Champions. Absolutely incredible. I was able to watch the Game 5 win from Wrigleyville and watch Games 6 & 7 with my Dad in Indianapolis. My Dad and I are both White Sox fans but it doesn’t matter. It played out perfectly. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Incredible.
You’re not supposed to be here, but you are. This new Nike Basketball commercial featuring Lebron to kick off the 2016-2017 NBA season is really well done. Dare I say, it even left me sentimental, and almost with a tear in my eye, as I reminisced over my own high school basketball career (career is a loose term) and a time I came out of nowhere to block a shot, pinning it against the glass in a summer league game. The stakes weren’t quite as high, but this took me back there. Great commercial.
Make the most of every day. Life is a gift. Be in the moment. Stay hungry. Stay humble. Keep working. Believe.
The Miami Marlin’s Dee Gordon hit his first home run of the season on Monday night, right after honoring late teammate Jose Fernandez. It’s an all around great moment, and the response from the dugout is the definition of TEAM. If anybody ever tries to tell you that the negatives of sports outweigh the positives, don’t listen.
Then, just a night later, Aledmys Diaz, childhood friend of Jose Fernandez, in his first game back after the memorial service, honors his friend and hits his first career grand slam to put the Cardinals up 5-2 in the bottom of the 4th. The Cardinals went on to win 12 – 5.
Say what you will. Even if you chalk it up to coincidence or happenstance, it makes these individual acts of hitting home runs under these circumstances no less incredible. These are uplifting moments.
I’ve always been interested in the Bible’s take on money and worldly things. My interest in the Bible’s take on money and finances has become even more solidified through occasionally listening to Dave Ramsey’s radio program–which I believe is good for anyone to take in, for some perspective on managing personal finances.
So I decided to google, “great bible verses on money,” and I came across this list of 50 bible verses about money, debt, giving, and finances on BibleStudyTools.com. Sure, these verses probably need to be taken in the proper context to gain their true meaning, but there is a lot of wisdom here. It’s funny to me, when I come across people who act like we are in a “new age” and things are so different and “progressive,” when I find there is still so much relevancy in something “written so long ago.” I think there are some good lessons and reminders to be found.
