Is Cash Still King?

99% of the time I do not carry cash (dollar bills or coins) with me when I leave my house. I rely exclusively on Chase Sapphire credit card for purchases for a couple very key reasons. The biggest benefit of only using plastic is earning cash-back on expenditures which pay for the card’s $100 yearly […]

Streaming is the New Cable Bundle?

Streaming is the New Cable Bundle? Ahh streaming… the revolutionized way to watch all your favorite TV shows and movies for a fraction of the price of the dreaded TV bundles. But will this bliss continue into the future? With the success of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, the video streaming industry is becoming more […]

Collaborative

Thinking of just one word to encapsulate Ideba is hard. I’m writing this post directly after being asked once again, “What is it you do exactly?” When people ask me what it is I do for work, I almost wish I was an accountant (almost). It’s difficult to describe what it is Ideba does on […]

From Uganda 2019 to 2020

One of the greatest things about working at Ideba is the chance we are given to give back and a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit and help support the kids and community at Mpondwe Lhubiriha Secondary School in Uganda. During the week I worked on different ways for the school and […]

Growth

Considering the increasing importance of culture in the workplace, picking “Growth” as the one word that describes Ideba was a fairly easy choice. Growth from a professional perspective – growing as a team and as a company; as we take on new challenging work on a daily basis, on behalf our clients Growth from a […]

Supportive

As you’ve probably been reading, everyone at Ideba has been posting a blog of the one word that represents Ideba, from their point of view. When I was asked to come up with my one word, “supportive” immediately came to mind. This for me was two-fold. Supporting each other Having the support of my team […]

Service serving the work

I have not spent my career in customer-facing positions. Far from it. I have always lurked behind-the-scenes where the ‘better mousetraps’ are built. It’s always been someone else job to present those mousetraps to the world. When David Sly started Ideba, I believe he wanted to follow his own vision of service, which is far […]

Citizen

I casually asked my eight-year old what “Citizen” meant.  He answered with “A person who is good to other people in the city.”  I challenged him a bit on if someone was travelling, and in another city, how could someone still be considered a “citizen”.  He decided that whatever “city” someone was in, if they […]

Ideba in One Word: Unity

When asked for one word that describes the company hosting this blog, Ideba, one word came to mind: Unity. Webster defines unity in a few subtly different ways as: Definition 1: the quality or state of not being multiple: ONENESS Definition 2: a condition of harmony: ACCORD continuity without deviation or change (as in purpose or action) […]

Dedicated

When asked to describe Ideba in one word, I chose the word “dedicated” for two-fold reasons. Dedicated to our clients I have worked at Ideba for almost eight years and have never once experienced our leadership team, advisory board, nor any other staff member put their own needs before a client’s. We don’t just accommodate […]
