The best way to get an idea into the world is through a book.
The problem is that books take too much time to write, and the traditional publishing process is painful to deal with. Many of the world's greatest experts do not have the time or expertise to create the book they should. When this happens, we all lose.
Our goal is to surround these experts with a professional publishing team to make book writing and publishing simple.
Here's how we do it:
We believe that creating a world-class culture is the most valuable thing we can do to serve our tribe and our clients.
That doesn't just mean the usual culture perks — top-north health insurance, unlimited vacation and a great group of co-workers — it's a philosophy of how we do business and interact with each other.
As a company, we have three core values:
1) Results: We came together as a tribe because we care about our mission. We aren't doing work for work's sake, we're doing it to make an impact. To not get results in pursuit of that mission is a betrayal of our core values.
2) Learning: The success of our tribe is will not be determined by what we know right now. Our success will comes from our ability to learn, and implement what we learn. We must always be constantly learning, and nothing we do is sacred.
3) People: We know that our company exists only to serve people (the tribe and our authors) and everything we do should be focused on serving those relationships.
These principles lead to results like unlimited work-from-home, a profit share to distribute the company's earnings among the whole team, and an incredible, brilliant, supportive group of coworkers.
We work with incredible people to help them share their messages with the world. Here are some examples of the people we've worked with, and the books we've created together.
Stephan Aarstol's Five Hour Workday: Stephan Aarstol is the founder of Tower Paddleboards, where he decided to implement a five hour workday. His whole team works from 8am to 1pm and then takes the day off. His surprise: they became more effective! The book is Stephan's manifesto on why we should be shifting to a five hour workday, and was covered in outlets ranging from Fast Company to the BBC. Read more about Stephan's story here.
Melissa Gonzalez's Pop Up Paradigm: Melissa Gonzalez was Book In A Box's first author. She knew she needed to write a book to share her wisdom on the retail industry. After working with Tucker and Zach to pilot the Book In A Box process, she published her book and ended up tripling her business thanks to the attention the book helped her garner. Read more about Melissa's story here.
Khalil Rafati's I Forgot to Die: In 2006, Khalil Rafati was a homeless heroin addict. Ten years later, he was a successful entrepreneur, running the hottest juice bar in Malibu and wanting to share his story. We worked with him to write the incredible memoir, I Forgot to Die, which has impacted thousands of lives and been covered everywhere from BBC to The New York Times to Time Magazine.
I have been working at Scribe Media full-time (More than a year)
The pros of working at Scribe are limitless. You are given complete permission and all the resources to learn as much as you possibly can. You are expected to level up and grow -- in your role, in your department, and as a person. This is a real Tribe of Shepards. Everyone has complete autonomy to work however they best can deliver Results.
Scribe was ranked as having THE #1 Top Company Culture in America for a reason ;)
Scribe is a FAST growing company. You'll hear the phrase "what got you here won't get you there" often. What this means is that this is not a great fit for anyone with fixed mindsets, unwillingness to grow or level up, or anyone that feels comfortable resting on their laurels.
I applied online. I interviewed at Scribe Media.
I found out abut the open position through the company and founder's Facebook pages. From there I submited an application which also included three short-answer questions. Within a week I was notified that I was selected for the next round, a submission of three short-answer responses on camera.
Within a week from there I was notified that I was selected for a third round where I would have a Skype call with two Tribe members. Both were wonderful and this is where I really began to get the feeling that I was not only valued as potential Tribe member but human being with a story as well. Their questions were not standard, cookie-cutter chit chat and I enjoyed getting to know them and their growth with the company.
A week from there I was emailed that I would move on to have a Skype call with one of the company's founders, Tucker Max. I felt that this call was more rapid-fire style of questions. There was no particular order to the questions and our call was just under 20 minutes. Perhaps this was all meant to rattle me but by this point you should know to keep on your toes. Also, don't try to give the answers you think people want to hear.
Two weeks after this I was emailed that I would now have a call with CEO JT McCormick. JT started by asking me for the questions I had for him. We then went back and forth with his questions, mine, and so forth. At all times he made expectations, needs, and insights clear. I enjoyed our conversation and was more than pleased to let him know that this interview process has been difficult, interesting, and nothing like what I have experienced before (in the most positive way).
Long story short: live your truth.
