Deepest Gratitude – Happy Thanksgiving!

Deepest Gratitude – Happy Thanksgiving!

Last Updated on November 18, 2023 by Rakesh Gupta

I’ve always held a strong belief in acknowledging gratitude and counting one’s blessings every day. There are times when it seems like there aren’t any blessings at all, and it’s on those days that we need to search the hardest and be extra thankful. Thanksgiving provides an opportunity for us to pause and appreciate the various twists and turns of life. Amen!

Throughout the year, I receive countless blessings. I want to take a moment now to reflect on and express gratitude for the blessings that have meant the most to me this year.

My Family and Friends

I dedicate all my efforts to my family – my mom, dad, and wife, to whom I am deeply thankful. Like any family, we’ve experienced our highs and lows, which have only seasoned our life with variety! Whether due to these experiences or in spite of them 😄, our home is always filled with love.

I am genuinely fortunate to have a wonderful family and a circle of supportive, incredible friends (Amit Chaudhary, Jitendra Zaa, Ashish Yaduka, Munira Majmundar, and many others – there are so many to acknowledge, yet so little room to do so!). A big #ThankYou to all!

Thank you to My Blog’s Readers, Supporters, and Sponsors!

It’s been 11 years since I launched my blog, mainly focusing on Salesforce Flow, Pardot, Apex, Lightning Web Component, and Salesforce Releases. The journey has been incredible, fueled by the unwavering support and encouragement from Salesforce Ohana. In 2016, recognizing the growing interest in Salesforce automation, I initiated Automation Hour alongside Jennifer Lee and David Litton. I’m grateful to Michelle Hansen for joining me in leading Automation Hour, contributing significantly to its success. This milestone is a testament to the power of community and shared learning in the Salesforce ecosystem.

I want to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to all who have been a part of this journey – my dedicated blog readers, loyal subscribers, supportive sponsors, skilled Automation Hour presenters, and the wider Salesforce Ohana. Your engagement and support have been essential. Special appreciation is due to Frances Barrera for her significant efforts in updating over 180 blog posts on Flows, integrating the newest enhancements and developments. Her contributions have been pivotal in ensuring our content remains up-to-date and pertinent.

Thank you for being my backbone and for your unconditional support.

Plan for the Year 2024

Below are my next year’s plans to help Ohana to learn how to migrate Workflow Rules and Process Builder to Salesforce Flows!:

  1. I am currently training for my first 5K run, with the hope of eventually participating in a half marathon one day. I’ve begun practicing yoga and exercising daily. I’m very grateful to my yoga teacher and fitness instructors for their guidance and support.
  2. Frances and I have almost completed migrating all Process Builder blog posts to Salesforce Flow. We’ve dedicated a significant amount of our time to this project, and as of now, we’ve successfully transitioned 96% of the articles to Flow. Our goal is to complete this migration by the end of March 2024. If you’re interested in contributing to this effort, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
  3. I am working on producing YouTube videos for each of my Flow blog posts. As of now, I’ve made videos for about 10% of these posts. I invite you to subscribe to my YouTube channel to stay updated on these video releases.
  4. I host the Automation Champion Office Hour every Saturday at 10:00 AM United States Central Time. To stay informed about these sessions, please visit this page. If you’re unable to attend, don’t worry – you can join my Slack Space or email me if you need any assistance with Salesforce Flow.

As I count my blessings this year… I am counting all of you! And I’ll be thanking God for you too!

Wishing all my dear friends a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!


Lots of Love,

Rakesh Gupta
