By being diversified and forward-thinking in approach, we always look for team members who are on the same page. A common vision creates strength and provides stability not only to our company but also to the companies we help. In spite of any obstacles we face, we insist that our team members see all clients through to launch. To us, stick-to-it-ive-ness is as crucial as talent. Although we want our both our leaders and workers to devise industry-leading ideas, we also want them to be dogged in their pursuit of excellence as we strive together to bring each idea to life.
In keeping with our philosophy of “being in business is the best business school,” we encourage each of our clients to develop mentoring as well as instructional skills. Leading by example is the best leadership plan. We model such appropriate leadership by “sending the house” to our clients. Anyone can give a client money, but it takes a quintessential angel company to provide the human capital that both smoothes and invigorates the client’s business. The first indication of success, both with our services and our clients’ growth, is the value provided. We always seek to maximize such value in all cases.
The “best idea” is always around the corner. We’re different, however, because we try to “turn the corner” as a team instead of waiting for something to happen. Passivity is death in the business world. We make things happen for our clients by providing an outstanding combination of human, pecuniary, and technology-based solutions to each of our clients’ points of pain. Hands-on is certainly better than hands-off.
It’s central to our philosophy, too, to blend fun and diligence together. “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy” is true; however, so is “all play and no work make Jack an unsuccessful boy.” If we have to power slam Red Bull ® all night to meet a deadline, we do it. If our office is littered with empty Kraft Dinner ® boxes and rapidly cooling mugs of Ramen Noodles ® late into the night, don’t be surprised. That’s not to say that we don’t whack each other with batakas occasionally to let off some steam, but neither work nor play should interfere with the other on the job.
