Life is Good

Meet Jake.

Check out an interesting company culture at
This company that was started by two brothers with $78.00 between them,
has an unusual corporate structure where they have fun, produce quality
products, and do good for others also. (Sounds like OCC)

It's hard to beat their company motto:
"Life is good. Do what you like, like what you do."
-- a nice thought for a new year.
