About Mike Walsh

Personally, I am a husband, father to three great children and a Christian. I spend spare time playing with my kids, fly-fishing in New England, swimming and blogging about various topics in a few places. Our family also has a small flock of backyard chickens that we enjoy taking care of in exchange for some great eggs.

I love working with SQL Server, I love data and I love being a SQL Server Consultant because it gives me a chance to help a lot of companies with a variety of problems and challenges. I get to apply my troubleshooting skill and passion with my SQL Server knowledge and an interest in business development. I speak and blog about SQL Server and in 2011, Microsoft saw fit to recognize me as a Microsoft MVP for SQL Server.

Why “Straight Path”?

StraightPath’s name comes from the “straight path” that I was called to walk when I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart as the only way to salvation. Through StraightPath, I hope to glorify God through my work, living out the truth of the verse I selected as a “company verse”.

“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.” Col 3:23-24

Guiding Principles

The chief end of this venture called Straight Path IT Solutions is to glorify God. In a “hierarchy of principles”, I consider that first and with that as an umbrella, each goal or principle underneath (Excel in Customer Satisfaction, Mentor Others in the field, Add Measurable Value to Client Projects, Operate with Integrity Always and Commit Time and Money to His Kingdom) should work well together. I hope to evaluate each business decision against this hierarchy of guiding principles -  If it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t happen.
