Category: Culture

Every day, we work together to create something bigger than ourselves. We work to change lives. We work to give hope. And we don’t just pay lip service to these ideals—our values are the DNA of our culture.

And what a culture it is! Our team members are provided the opportunity to attend Financial Peace University from the very first day. Our leadership takes pride in kicking everyone out of the office by 5:30 so we spend our evenings with family instead of hunkered down at our desks, and Dave provides a free catered lunch once a month. Team members enjoy a no-gossip policy, loads of free products, legendary Christmas parties … the list goes on and on. We work hard, but we also play hard.

But hey, don’t just take our word for it! Dave’s company has been recognized by the Nashville Business Journal as one of the BEST places to work in Nashville six times in a row! Our leadership truly believes that when you treat team members with excellence, you get excellent results.

A Life Lesson from 24′s Jack Bauer

A Life Lesson from 24′s Jack Bauer

Recently, my wife and I discovered the TV show “24.” Yes . . . I know we are more than 12 years behind and just now discovering a new meaning of awesome. But when you disconnect cable and rely on the Internet for your commercial-free, show-watching pleasure, well . . . there are just some […] 

iPhone Fairy

iPhone Fairy

More than a month ago, I was rushing home so my husband could leave to go to work. I parked, jumped out of the car with about 20 items in my hand, and dropped my iPhone face down on the concrete. I hesitated to pick it up afraid of what I might find. When I […] 

Keeping the J-O-B out of Work with Office Pranks

Keeping the J-O-B out of Work with Office Pranks

Who wants a boring monotonous “job” where the only excitement is watching your unit tests suite execute? Well, now that I mention it, I do enjoy watching unit tests light up my screen, but that’s beside the point. There should be more to work than just code and tests; there should be fun and some […] 

Cell Phone Life Hack Part III

Cell Phone Life Hack Part III

I’ve previously written about how living on the Dave Ramsey plan makes me hate overspending on my AT&T phone bill. It makes me sad in a way, because despite all the hype against AT&T, I’ve been an AT&T customer for nine years, and I’ve never had a problem with their wireless network or customer service. […]

As part of the assessment, they sometimes use animals to represent the categories: Lion for the D Otter for the I Golden Retriever for the S Beaver for the C A true computer […] 

Encouraging Your Teammates

Encouraging Your Teammates

A few weeks ago, I gave a presentation on a script I wrote to simplify my workflow with some automation.  I shared it with the hope that some of my teammates could utilize it, and if not,  then at the very least, inspire them to look for ways to automate and simplify. The following week, […] 

Merry Christmas!!

Dare to Disagree

Dare to Disagree

In today’s environment of political correctness, people have become timid and maybe even a bit scared to speak their mind and convey their point of view out of fear of offending someone. While there is an appropriate level of respect and professionalism when having a conversation, you should not abandon your thoughts and principles simply […] 

Emotional Emergency Fund

Emotional Emergency Fund

Here at Dave Ramsey’s company, we are all pretty familiar with the Baby Steps. Tried, true and time-proven, we know they work. I found myself thinking recently that they might just expand beyond the realm of finance . . . maybe they can help in my day-to-day interactions? What is Baby Step 1? Say it […] 

Living Through the Week

Living Through the Week

I’m generally an easily excitable person. I mean, my son being born, I’m excited. First day of school. I’m excited. New app update to Angry Birds on my iPad? Yup, I’m excited. That’s just how I’m wired. I remember a few years back getting hired on at a place and was absolutely on top of […]
