Who Am I, Why Am I Here?

April 19, 2013

It’s 3:00 on Friday afternoon, and I am wrapping up my third week here at Volano Solutions. It’s been just long enough that I am starting to feel at home, but not so long that I’ve forgotten why motives or reasoning for joining this lot. The short answer is because I have failed to find anyone to pay me for this superfecta of passions – running, knitting, beer tasting, and gardening. The long answer is a bit more complex.

I first became acquainted with Rod and Don a few years ago, and have long respected and admired their business “credo”. You might sum it up as “work hard, play hard”, but there’s really a lot more to it. Kelly does a great job defining Volano’s dogma here:

Volano’s core values are simple. Learn. Complete your work. Take Pride in your work. Adapt. Have fun.

In my very short tenure at Volano I have truly enjoyed becoming a part of a company that lives what they profess to be, and working with such a great group of developers…and Kelly. 🙂

Side note – if you are interested in hiring me to run while knitting, drinking beer, and gardening,  please do let me know. I am sure Rod and Don would love to hear my pitch on how to break into this untapped market. Happy Friday!
