First, let's talk about YOUR team!

No matter who you are or what you do, you get 168 hours in a week. If you average 7 hours of sleep each night, that's 49 hours spent sleeping, leaving 119 hours left awake. If you work an average of 40 hours a week - you're probably above that - that's 33.6% of your awake adult life spent at work. One third of your waking life!

Success at work and in life requires more than just having the technical skills to do your job.
Yes, you have to be good at what you do. But you also have to be good at how you do it. 

If 70% of people are disengaged in something they do 33.6% of the time, something is wrong.

Since then it’s grown into a company that helps thousands of people in live events (and millions more online) every year. But I couldn’t have built the company into what it is today without the help of some awesome people. These are all of the creative humans behind the scenes of Humor That Works.
