What We Would Tell Kanye

I’m sure you’ve heard the buzz around one of Kanye West’s recent tweets that he has $53 million in personal debt, despite a reported annual income of $18 million a year and a net worth of $120 million. He’s received quite a bit of criticism, so here at Ramsey Solutions, we would like to offer […]

or How I Missed My Calling as a Low-Budget-Movie Creature Maker This continues the saga that is Halloween with my family (Part 1) It was great to hear my girls constantly asking for updates on what they lovingly referred to as my Groot Pants.

We’re a Team Because It Matters

We’re a Team Because It Matters

Having a shared goal—a mission—has an incredibly positive impact on the quality of any team. I see this every day as I interact with developers on our team. If I were a developer, that wouldn’t come as a great surprise. At many companies, though, someone who is a Quality Assurance Analyst like me would be […] 

Core Value Number Thirteen

Core Value Number Thirteen

As this year comes to a close, I have been reflecting on the privilege of being a part of a company that truly aligns very important things. In addition to working for a higher cause (in digital development we call it “developing with purpose”), we also esteem our culture and our core values. Developing With […] 

Quality Assurance and Tech Support: A Match Made in Heaven

Quality Assurance and Tech Support: A Match Made in Heaven

Last time, I wrote about how user experience and quality assurance are BFFs. And that’s completely, 100%, without-a-doubt true. But there’s another team relationship that is mutually beneficial: tech support and quality assurance. Odds are, you’ve had a bad experience with technology. Maybe you’ve tried to order airline tickets online and run into issues. Maybe […]

This One Simple Thing Will Make You a Better Developer

In Entreleadership, Dave introduces a document called a Key Results Area (KRA). A simple definition of a KRA is an outcome-oriented job description. Lately, I’ve been reflecting on this particular line: “Pull ‘no’ and all of its synonyms from your list of first responses. Explore solutions. Prioritize. Contribute ideas.” It’s very tempting to start saying […] 

CRM: Is It B2B? B2C? Or H2H?

CRM: Is It B2B? B2C? Or H2H?

CRM implementation. The mere mention of the phrase strikes anxiety in the hearts and quickens the pulse of even the most veteran implementation teams. And it’s what we at Develop With Purpose find staring us down like a tiger in the jungle. As a company we have long since outgrown our current contact management system, […] 

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 […]
