Made in the USA: WeatherTech Floorliners

I have been a WeatherTech customer for a number of years and really like their laser measured all weather car mats. Each mat is made specifically to fit perfectly each car. This product must have put a hurt on car dealers selling all weather mats for crazy markups. Most importantly they are Made in the U.S.A., it doesn’t get better than that. Also check out the other WeatherTech products also Made in the USA!

RIP Tony Hsieh

I had been following Tony Hsieh since he was CEO at Zappos. Sadly he passed away unexpedly at the age of 46. So I thought I would pull together some of his interviews.

“We are not trying to maximize for every transaction. We’re trying to build a life long relationship with out customers.”
“From the beginning, company culture was always important. Is this someone I would choose to hang out with or grab a drink with, if we weren’t in business? If the answer was no, we wouldn’t hire them.”

Tony Hsieh became a strong advocate for self organizing and self managed organizations. The Fast Company article Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh: Adopt Holacracy Or Leave features the email he sent to all Zappos team members. It is an interesting read.

Made in The USA: Frost River Simple Briefcase

I am feeding my bag obsession, the reality is if you buy a bag from Frost River you may not need to buy another. I love the way they describe their company and their principles. Sometimes a simple brief case is all you need to going to and from the office and Frost River has a perfect bag for your commute, it’s called the Simple Brief. The best part is all their bags are Made in the USA.

All or None

This is not an exact quote but it still hits the mark.

We are all beautiful or none of us are.

We are all children of God, beautiful. This is the place from which we must start. Deny one of us, deny us all.
