It's All About the Long Term
"We believe that a fundamental
measure of our success will be the
shareholder value we create over the
long term. We will work hard to spend
wisely and maintain our lean culture.” –

"Our whole philosophy became
‘let’s take most of the money we
would’ve spent on paid advertising
and paid marketing and instead of
spending it on that invest it in the
service and then let our customers
do the marketing for us through

self-sufficiency, and invention. There
are no extra points for headcount,
budget size, or fixed expense.
