Passion totem awarded to Daniel Cantu

We're not a big dog. If the competition is a Saint Bernard, then we're probably like a Jack Russell Terrier. They may be big and powerful, but we more than make up for that with our energy, our vigor—our passion. (And ingenuity too, but that's more of a collie-like trait, which doesn't really fit in this analogy.)

Since we've started up on these core values, I've noticed that we've got a lot of people here who go the extra mile, who get energized when you present them with a challenge. These are the kind of people we like to see at ClearCorrect—people who, if you give them a challenge, they kick it into high gear.

This is how Daniel Cantu is. One of our most experienced sales reps, Daniel's the winner of our second totem, and it's not too hard to see why:

"He’s been with the company since the beginning and he’s stuck it out through thick and thin."

"He’s shown an interest in learning several different areas of the company so he can pitch in and help whenever needed."

"He’s a fighter—when met with obstacles, he works hard to overcome them."

"He owns in tug-o-war."

“He’s a Marine. ‘Nuff said.”

So of course Daniel deserves the boxing gloves—commemorating a fighting spirit—and you can't say they don't look good on him.

 

Core Value game #2: Tug-o-war

The second core value game was represented by a very passionate game: Tug-o-war!

We assembled 8 teams and they battled through out the week in a tournament-style bracket, each team passionately pulling the ropes as if we were pulling away from the competition.

Execution of authentication request returned unexpected result: 404

Core value #2: Be passionate

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
—Mark Twain

We’ve measured it. We’ve weighed it. We’ve counted and quantified it. And if the bumps and bruises weren’t proof enough, we’ve now settled it.

We’ve got fight.

It turns out, our fight is an old-school model—vintage. It’s larger than most you’ll see today. Solid and well-built, from a time before they started making them all plastic and compact. It runs a little loud. It runs a little rough. But it’ll plow over anything in its path.

Our fight will take us wherever we want to go. We just have to fuel it. Lucky for us, it runs on something cheaper than gasoline and in far greater supply: passion.

So let’s top off the tank and go for a ride. With a fight our size, no one can stop us.
