Businesses are not just numbers.
we value hard work
Our admiration for a founder comes not only from their end result, but from the journey that brought them there.
Durability over speed
While much of the world is enamored with high growth, we value longevity
longevity can only be created if everyone wins
Businesses are competitive. To be a continuing concern over generations, a business must find a balance between keeping customers happy, managers happy and investors happy (in that order). There is no great business that maximizes one at the expense of another.
Authenticity matters. Never operate in a manner that is not honest to who you, your business or family are. In the end stakeholders will always value sincerity over obedience.
As the always quotable - Warren Buffett has said, “The stock market is a highly efficient mechanism for the transfer of wealth from the impatient to the patient.”
Excellence comes from experimentation, not design
You cannot force innovation, only inspire it. Don't be scared to play.
