OLarry Core Pillars

  • Personal Ownership: All team members of both the company and acquired CPAs will own a stake in the company. With this equity, an expectation of acting as an owner of their given area is expected.
  • Demonstrate Grit: All successful new ventures take time and determination. Team members are expected to be personally driven to succeed on the schedule required by the work and to put their short-term financial needs behind the company's long-term needs. 
  • Collaboration Before Siloed Heros: The strongest products are built by many minds with many viewpoints, not individuals. All team members must hold themselves to a high level of communication and cross-collaboration. No projects or products should be produced in a silo. 
  • Work Backwards: Everything we do puts the customer at the heart. If the customer is happy, the revenue will come. 
  • Market Validation: All products and processes should be tested and validated with the target customer before any major commitment to the project commences. All team members are responsible for talking to customers and understanding their needs. 
  • Area Expertise: Each team member will be the given expert in their allotted part of any project, and knowledge will be deferred to as such. 
  • Build the Brand: Every team member will be responsible for building the OLarry brand through social, sales, or customer support.  
  • Long-term View with a Global Focus: Strategic decisions will be made with a company's first view for building long-term wealth globally before short-term personal gains or expenses. 
  • Think Bootstrapped, not Funded: Team members will treat OLarry’s cash like their own, being careful only to spend it when a valid business case is presented and no market short—or long-term alternative is available.
