People have intrinsic value. Whether they are customers, employees, partners, vendors, owners, or fellow citizens of this great big world we all share, we love our neighbors and implore others to do the same. Relationships with these people are the foundation of our business. Relationships are built upon conversation – active listening and honest feedback. Our business is all about people, and helping people reach their goals through relationship building.
When we laugh more, we live longer. When you enjoy coming to work, it makes it so much more. Have fun! We have only one shot at this life – why not have fun doing it?
Stewardship of resources, people, and relationships is of utmost importance in responsible decision-making and good living. This impacts everything from the way we spend money to the way we treat people. We will be held responsible for the resources we are given. Treat them that way. In the beginning, we built and ran this company out of houses and coffee shops. We have always done what it takes. Always strive to do more with less.
Always take the long-term view, a long-term approach. BombBomb is committed to doing whatever it takes to do the right thing. It matters in the end. This may not be the most popular approach, but this is who we are. (P.S. Good Wins.)
There is always another side to the story or a different angle. Always listen first. Then listen again. Do not think you have everything figured out, because you rarely do. LEARN both personally and professionally. Use your mistakes to get better.
As someone once told me “You have to be moving to make moves.” If you are not consistently changing, you will be left behind. Think like you are a change agent, because when you work at BombBomb you must be. Read, watch, and be in relationship with people to have conversations.
Sharing of ideas, concerns, passions, criticisms, victories, and stories promotes collaboration. BombBomb believes that we can build better software, marketing programs, support services, and ultimately a better culture when we openly share. Practice giving gifts. It does not have to be big. As my wife always reminds me, it’s not the gift – it is the thought behind it. Give gifts – whether they are time, materials or spirit.
