Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions. We’ve all made them. They rarely stuck. Apparently it’s cool to say they’re not cool anymore. Call me an optimist, but I think the basic idea is a good one – as long as you don’t go overboard but instead keep your resolutions reasonable. No – you can’t learn French by February.

Finishing Strong in the 4th Quarter

“Holy pumpkin spice and Star Wars Episode VII Batman, we’re in Q4! How on earth are we already here!??” That was my immediate reaction when I realized that Q4 is upon us and that winter is coming. At Fracture we treat Q4 with a blend of impending excitement and nervous anxiety.

100,000 is a Gigantic Number: Our CEO on Being Grateful

This being an internal email, it’s clearly directed toward the team, but this sentiment of gratitude is one we feel just as strongly toward our amazing customers who helped us get to this point. …

Fracture is 5 years old! A word from our CEO.

Only 45% of businesses make it to their 5th birthday. We’re incredibly proud of the work we’ve done to be able to say that we’re turning 5 years old this November.

Wow, …

What Crossfit is Teaching Me about Starting a Business

Recently our CEO Abhi Lokesh competed at CrossFit Gainesville’s local CrossFit Open for the 2014 CrossFit Games. The experience was one that got him to thinking about how to succeed at CrossFit and how similar it is to succeeding at business. He shared his thoughts, and we thought you’d like them too. Mental endurance is what separates the elite from the average. It’s that rare ability to ignore your body screaming at you and keep going that really pushes the …
