We were able to start working on the business and not just in the business, whereas I think pre-EOS we were very reactionary.” (6:07) – Josh Abbott


For a very long time, [we waited] for people to ask for raises, and if they asked for a raise [we would] assess and give them a raise. But what we found was there were folks out there who are not going to ask for a raise, and they may start to feel resentment around the fact that they haven’t been offered a raise.” (16:42) – Josh Abbott


We put out ads for one [open position]—we were just looking for one person last year. And I think we ended up turning [the ad off] after we got 35 applications in four days.” (29:24) – Josh Abbott
