Lynne’s Key Value: Give A Sh*t
Growing up as a surprisingly shy kid in Illinois, Lynne has always been influenced by her father, a hard-working foundry worker and entrepreneur who started his own successful company during Lynne’s teenage years. In his office in their family home, Lynne’s dad had hung a felt banner that read “Give s Sht.” That statement stuck with Lynne, and influenced everything she did. It’s actually thanks to Lynne (and her father) that one of Fruition’s core values is Give a Sht. When Brad Anderson, the founder of Fruition, got to meet Lynne’s father in person, Brad asked him what he believed factored into the success and longevity of the company he’d started. Lynne’s dad answered: “Always hire people who Give a Sht.” The concept stuck with Brad, just as it had with Lynne, and a new value was born. To Lynne, the general idea behind “Give a Sht” is simple. “I approach it from a place of genuine care for the work that you deliver or do,” she says. “No matter what I’m doing for work, I want to make sure I’m giving my clients or customers the best possible experience, the best possible solutions. It’s literally giving a sh*t, or caring deeply about, every aspect of the business that I touch. This is the story-line that I’ve been hearing forever. It’s in the fabric of who I am, especially when it comes to work.”
When She’s Not Hard at Work, You Can Find Lynne…
An avid fan of the outdoors, Lynne spends her free time fly fishing, hiking, or skiing around Colorado. (Lynne’s a big proponent of the annual Fruition company ski day in the winter). She also loves baking anything she can find on Pinterest. She’s a particular fan of chocolate chip cookies, but her proudest baking accomplishment has to be her entirely scratch-made Italian Creme Cake, filled with layers and layers of soft cake and hand-made cream cheese icing. Lynne also cares for the community (she’s a board member for Playworks Colorado), and is a big family person—and has one of the sweetest dogs ever, Stanley (#stanthedogman) When we asked Lynne what she would do if she won the lottery, she said that her first priority would be to make sure that all of her nieces and nephews had enough money for college and to set up her family so that they’d never have to worry about money again. Then she’d use the rest to throw “a hell of a party” with family and close friends, and set up a company of her own focusing on social impact causes and services. Oh, and she’d also be sure to write a nice check to the person who sold her the lotto ticket—Lynne is the type of person who wants to make sure everyone’s needs are taken care of, especially those she partners with. That’s just what happens when you give a sh*t and why Fruition has the best digital marketing team.
