Where We Started...
As sisters, we often joke that we were destined to be business partners from the beginning (a fact proven in the development of more than three companies to date). We believe that growing businesses through building quality teams is in our blood. In fact, we grew up in the "people" business working alongside our mother, Lynne, who owned a successful recruiting firm in Denver for more than forty years.
Over the past fifteen years, we've helped business owners cultivate effective teams to carry forward concepts, products, and services to fruition.

Welcome to Iridium...
Iridium is a rare element that is thought to have arrived on earth via asteroid thousands of years ago. It is extremely resilient and able to withstand highly corrosive environments which has led to its use in the production of spacecraft parts, airplane spark plugs, and other industrial goods. Looking back on that first conversation about starting a new firm, we realized that helping people is at the core of who we are as individuals. Our cumulative experiences have entailed a wide variety of environments, through which we have both learned and developed a set of skills that are incredibly useful in powering amazing things.
From corporate culture at NASA to interpersonal relationships, this book is a fascinating read with reach on the process of thinking like a scientist in an actionable way.

How to Do the Work
Dr. Nicole LePera
This book is for individuals, but as we read it and engaged with the material, we realized that it helped us better understand and bring awareness to how we feel about work, show up in the workplace, and engage with work from a personal standpoint.
