  • Passion. If you don’t get excited about point of sale financing, retail, and consumer empowerment, it simply won’t work.
  • Smarts: Book and street. We have to use all of the tools at our disposal to build West Creek.
  • Empathy and Compassion. You understand that people’s access to life essential goods and services are in your hands.
  • Communication. Can you ask for help or put your hand up when you don’t understand?
  • Building. Doing. Making. Yes, we have to do a lot of thinking and talking to figure this stuff out, but you can’t wait to leave the conversation and build it.
