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 […] 

This One Simple Thing Will Make You a Better Developer

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 […] 

Grow Yourself As A Developer

Grow Yourself As A Developer

So, I admit it. Lately, I’ve become a podcast junkie. I found a great deal on a Jabra Freeway Bluetooth speaker for my car and this awesome simple podcast app for my phone called AntennaPod. These tools have really helped me reconnect with some fantastic resources during my drive time. One in particular is the […] 

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 […] 

Reflective Leadership

I enjoy watching all different kinds of movies, but my favorite genre is sports movies. One of the reasons that I enjoy them is because of the leadership attributes that are often portrayed. In the movie Remember the Titans, one of the characters says, “Attitude reflects leadership.” How true. And attitude isn’t the only thing […] 

Be Incomparable

Be Incomparable

Last week a friend and I were talking over coffee about music we’d recently discovered. He’s great at finding bands that we both totally dig. He’s so good at it that I have a hard time finding bands he’d like that he’s not already aware of. In describing the bands to each other we often […] 

Trust

Trust

Today we have a guest post from a fellow team member, Josh Holloway. Josh used to work with us in IT but is now working on our social media team. Four years ago when I was interviewing for a job with Dave Ramsey, I was asked to submit a high-level household budget. I’d never been […] 

Stack Ranking

Stack Ranking

I recently read a quick Forbes article about stack ranking, and it rang very true. I came from a company that did this very thing, and, wow, was it ever demotivating. I still remember my first 90-day review here at Lampo. I was literally holding my breath, waiting for the other shoe to drop … […] 

(Un)Like a Boss

(Un)Like a Boss

For me, a boss is someone who is in a position of authority. A leader is someone who takes charge to get things done. A boss isn’t necessarily a leader; leadership has nothing to do with position. I know the difference because I’ve worked for both over the years. However, since I’ve been on Dave’s Web […]
