  4. Figure sh** out
    Don’t sell yourself short, work through it and find the answer, believe in you.

  5. Take bold bets, and fail
    We will be more successful in taking big swings and failing occasionally, than small incremental improvements.

  6. Stay hungry
    Keep Looking for the new, Never resist change, what worked yesterday is out of date today, and forgotten tomorrow.

  7. Be an adult
    We all have our responsibilities, see to them without the need for oversight, be an adult.

  8. Insist on the Highest Standards
    Quality work means doing it right when no one is looking.

  9. Innovate, create the future
    We are in the business of building out products and services that have never done before. Innovate, invent and simplify. As we do new things, we accept that we may be misunderstood for long periods.
