Make Something People Need

Better user value… better unit economics… better business.

  • Build things that people want or need
  • Create so much value for customers that the returns take care of themselves
  • The bigger the problem solved the better the unit economics

Be Resourceful 

There is always a way to make it happen, nothing is impossible.

  • Trends, behaviors, tools, etc. are constantly shifting, creating new ways to solve problems
  • Listen to users, be data-driven and continually iterate to find absolute best product/market fit
  • And sometimes through the wall is better than around

Give Back

It feels good… plus, it helps the bottom line.

  • Focus on businesses that can make a net positive impact on peoples’ day to day
  • Share ideas, connections, learnings, etc. graciously
  • Give to programs that make a difference in the lives of people that can’t yet help themselves

If these core values match your core values… say hello.
