Action Taking

One of our core values is to take action and step out of our comfort zones.


We push each other to participate at events, like PowerPoint-Karaoke in front of 60 paying people just to feel the fear and get used to it.

Comfort Zone Crushing

We have a list of crazy challenges to step out of our comfort zone and challenge each other to do it in a competition.
