The Yes We Can System

Diamond Nexus Yes We Can Team
The Yes We Can System Team! Printer is in the shot because the new ERP will reduce our internal printing needs by 70%. If the system launches well, the DN Pyrotechnic Team are going to blow it up in our parking lot on Friday.
I spend most of my time focused on DN marketing and external things. It's great when I get to celebrate some important news from the "back-office" part of our business.

For the last two years or so we have been searching for, and now implementing, a new ERP system. An ERP system, for those who are interested in these arcane things, is a centralized software system that helps manage and control the entire enterprise. ERP Stands for “Enterprise Resource Planning.”

Dont Forget your Mom!

Mother's Day. Seems out of touch that there is only one day a year dedicated to mothers; those incredible beings that are responsible for everything. The glue that bonds generations and creates the societies we live in. You'd think they would at least get a commemorative week or a federal nanny-state Monday-off holiday.

Tomorrow I get to spend the day with my wonderful, irascible and fearless mother. A brilliant and still beautiful woman with an amazing mind who put her own dreams on hold to support my dad and his crazy entrepreneurial dreams and boom or bust lifestyle. And, to raise me, an often difficult little bastard of a kid. She did it all while reading five books a week and smoking about 500 cigarettes a day.

Diamond Nexus Holiday Anniversary Party

I just had a meeting with our PR folks at Diamond Nexus and was soundly berated for not making a post here for months. Okay, I get it. I'm just not a huge fan of the whole social media phenomenon. But, I get that DN has 100,000 fans on facebook, a half a million customers, and that there are people who have a bit of an interest, for whatever unfathomable reason, in me.

So, I'll start posting again. I see that Blogger totally changed the interface, so I have to figure that out. So this is a "warm up post"

To experiment with posting videos, check out the awesome party we had for the Diamond Nexus 7th Anniversary
