My name is Stonemonkey and welcome to my blog. Obviously my real name isn't Stonemonkey but these days, that's what people call me. Creating the VapeXhale Cloud was a very intimate experience for us and we wanted to be able to share that with our customers and loyal fans with 100% authenticity. This blog isn't written by someone we hired, nor will there be an editor. This will be 100% Stonemonkey, grammatical errors and all.
I thought long and hard about what this first blog should be about. Should it be about health? technology? mixed martial arts? Although those topics are near and dear to my heart, I think a good place to start off is integrity. Before I begin, here's a little background about me. In a previous life, I worked in the dog eat dog world of high tech. This is an industry where you can go from sleeping on the couch at your college roommate's one bedroom apartment to 20-something billionaire seemingly over night. I saw many of my peers rise and many more fall.
One thing that I noticed was that the most successful teams always had a high degree of integrity. When you can trust your fellow employees to complete their tasks and have your back, the productivity can be through the roof. I have also seen instances where colleagues sabotage each other, much to the detriment of the team goal. At VapeXhale, we not only hire highly skilled employees, we make sure that they are the right cultural fit and are people that we trust to babysit our first born.
By having the right team in place, we can ensure that we all have the same goals:
A lot of sweat, love, and hard work into creating the VapeXhale Cloud and HydraTubes. We've already won Best Product at three separate events (Seattle Cannabis Cup, LA Cannabis Cup, and San Francisco New Tech) and were the only vendor that placed in every single category at the first ever, US Cannabis Cup and this is just the beginning. I'll keep everyone updated on the latest and greatest in this blog but you'll get special access to certain promotions if you follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Check back soon to get my picks for the upcoming UFC on FX 8 - Vitor Belfort versus Luke Rockhold... I also have a lot to say about Jon Jones versus the Gangster of West Lin, Chael Sonnen. One last thing, if we all just take a quick moment to smile and say hello to a stranger today, it'll be one small step to a better world....Monkey out.
