Today, I’m talking with Eddie Geller, the Co-Founder and CEO of Tinybeans, an all-in one app for parents to easily capture and privately share photos of their children, keep track of milestones in an organized and safe space, and print baby albums straight from their phone.

There were two important areas I wanted to really dig into in this chat with Eddie: the role values play in Tinybeans and the system that Eddie and his team uses to run their business.

We hear the word values thrown around all the time, but it’s rare to see a company truly prioritize living up to those values each and every day. Tinybeans is one of those rare companies so it was great to hear how they’ve done this and why it was so important to them.

On the operations side, we talk about how Tinybeans uses The Great Game of Business as an operating system to keep their business running, and growing, smoothly.

Too many entrepreneurs ignore the value of systems to begin with, but even those that “get it” often try to reinvent the wheel. Eddie shares why you don’t need to do that with The Great Game of Business.

This was a wide-ranging conversation that I know you’ll get a lot out of.
