On January 26th, America was reminded that nobody is immune from the fragility of life. A routine flight, which Kobe has taken thousands of times ended in tragedy. While I followed Kobe’s career, admired his game, recognized his talent, and participated in shouting “Kobe” whenever I threw something away, it wasn’t until the days following his passing that I learned and understood Kobe’s work ethic. For many this could be common knowledge – this “Mamba Mentality.” For me, I was… [continue]
This quote just about sums it up: There was so much fellowship and family fun to be had. It IS my favorite day of the year here at Eg! A HUGE thank you to those who helped me make this day run smoothly… Also thanks to those who volunteered… you ran the trading like champs!! Thanks to all who came, we hope you had a blast, and know that we do this because we love you and your children and… [continue]
“2020 Vision?” Really? I know. It’s overused, a bad dad joke, the puniest of puns, and as cliché as they come. But, now that we got that out of the way: With last year and last decade behind us, what are you wanting to accomplish next year/decade? Just about everyone wants to eat better, lose weight, or get in shape (or all of the above). Those are good goals, and keep those on the list. But… aren’t there even more… [continue]
In tech we have many buzz words such as microservices, the cloud, frameworks, and artificial intelligence. Travel also has buzz words, and as of late, Iceland has been one of the biggest. Being a UX/UI Designer, I spend most of my days behind a computer. With two-thirds of the country being uninhabitable, a trip to Iceland is bound to be rustic, rural, and isolated, so the promise of spending most of my vacation outdoors was enticing! After stepping off the… [continue]
E-g Focus on Values series As we pass our 19th anniversary and head into our 20th year as a business, we felt compelled to bring a little of the intimacy of our quaint company out into the open. Or as Don put it, “letting the internal leak outside a bit.” And so, we launch our “E-g Focus on Values” blog series! There are no “big personalities” here, and so we’re not strutting around presuming we’re the authority on any of… [continue]
Another year has passed. We’ve covered a lot of new ground over the past year on our journey of life together here in the E-g family. We’ve seen some new breathtaking views, and had some new thrilling life experiences. We’ve endured deep personal losses together that none of us are ever truly prepared for. We have also been pleasantly surprised by life more times than we can count… And yet with all of that “new,” we find ourselves in familiar… [continue]
We have an informal saying around here: Do Right and Risk the Consequences. One of our E-gineers had that as a bumper sticker awhile back, and it just seems to apply pretty universally. We all have countless opportunities to do a little something for someone else – something completely selfless and sacrificial. It seems so often we let those opportunities slip by – for a myriad of reasons, for sure. Add to that: with our abundance of technological connectedness, we’ve… [continue]
Adulthood. Coming of age. Voting. High school graduation. These are all things that greet us here in the US when we turn 18. So it seems E-g has finally come of age! How do we celebrate our 18th anniversary? Just like we do the rest of life here at E-g – like a family. We gathered at one of our beautiful local parks, swung open the gates, and said, “Have fun!” Honestly, we needed little instruction after that!
