You’ll often hear a lot of companies share their mission and vision statements, but what about their values? A good friend of ours suggested that we make a list our company values to share with our employees, customers, and other stakeholders. Keep in mind that this isn’t just some corporate gibberish… we truly believe these things and strive to live by them.
