The Oscars were a few weeks ago, so in honor of that event and Throwback Thursday, here are some thoughts from PricePoint founder Ryan Keintz on the 2014 Oscars. How did the Oscars get me thinking about productivity...

At our annual mountain summit where we celebrated the successes of 2018 and innovated for 2019, I asked the team: Why does PricePoint exist? There were lots of answers (many of which were good), but there was one mentioned that I hadn’t heard before and wanted...
