In early 2004, when the principals of Auspex Capital sat down to map out our strategy for success with the venture we were about to launch, the following considerations topped the list:
Enjoy what they are doing
Make sure the work is interesting and challenging
Be the best at what they do
Always deliver what they say they will
Develop a reputation for honesty and integrity
Earn the confidence of their clients
Earn the respect of their competitors
Make a lot of money
