A Word From Our Founder

Our values and beliefs are at the heart of everything we do.
Dan-Schmitt-Jigsaw-Business-Consulting-01

The late Steve Jobs of Apple held a core belief about running a successful business.

“We had a fundamental belief that doing it right the first time was going to be easier than having to go back and fix it. And I cannot say strongly enough that the repercussions of that attitude are staggering. I’ve seen them again and again throughout my business life.” …. Steve Jobs

I strongly believe in this same business philosophy, especially for small consumer product businesses that are in their beginning stages. Whether a business is in its stage of incubation, acceleration, about to launch into the market, or has recently done so, getting it right the first time is crucial for success. I liken this core idea to how great builders operate – “Measure Twice and Cut Only Once”.
