Have fun and do the right thing.

If we can't have fun (and enjoy) what we're doing we don't want to do it. This doesn't mean that some things we do are not fun, like book keeping or taxes or analytics, but OVERALL we want to work with fun people, who are doing fun things.

Doing the right thing is important, in fact it's more important than having fun. Everything we do for our clients and or community we want to ensure that we do the RIGHT THING for them and for ourselves.
