Kyle’s Story

You may notice I refer to “we” quite often. During the early stages it was just me as a shareholder, but “we” refers to the collective of the team. I believe that we all work for the company and our goal is to uplift and grow it and by doing so, “we” uplift everyone that works in the company and that everyone ultimately gets to benefit from its success though security and a passion to grow and be a part of something bigger than themselves.
