Chapter 1 – Our Philosophy
The whole philosophy of the company is not to be needlessly ugly to people.
I’ve never been able to understand the concept of business as warfare. It’s just so foreign to me. I don’t like the idea of fighting with any other business. I’ve always tried to create a culture where we don’t think of competitors as enemies. We want to be friendly, even when we’re competing.
I see us as partners with our customers. They’re putting their trust in us; they’re giving us their money in exchange for something we make. How can you have an adversarial relationship with someone who’s just trying to buy something from you? You can’t survive if you look at them that way.
Even when businesses are in competition, there’s no reason it has to be a war. The world would be a much better place if everyone was friendly and agreeable, instead of constantly trying to get ahead by stepping on other people.
We don’t want any part of it: the backstabbing, lying, and cheating that go on in so many businesses today. It’s offensive to us on a moral level, and it also happens to be bad business in the long run.
Peppercorn is an a la carte residential real estate brokerage. Our mission is to serve the modern homebuyer and seller. We focus on technology, transparency, and customer service.
1. Technology over tradition – We are constantly evolving our business to reflect the needs of the modern customer.
2. Transparency over secrets – We believe in complete honesty and integrity. Our customers can see how we make money, how we price their home, and more.
3. Customer service over advertising – We believe in building a business through repeat customers and word of mouth referrals, not simply marketing ourselves to strangers.
The Peppercorn Story
Peppercorn was founded by three brothers who wanted to create a better way to buy and sell homes in Indianapolis. They saw an opportunity to build a company that used technology to save customers money while also providing excellent customer service. They launched Peppercorn with just one car and one house key in hand as they began listing houses for clients around central Indiana.”
Our philosophy is to treat everyone fairly and with respect. We want to be the kind of company that a stranger would recommend to his mother.
We want our customers to feel like they could call up and talk to us directly if they had any questions or concerns. We want them to know that we’re human beings who care about them, and that we have their back.
We try to run our company with a high level of integrity in every aspect of what we do. We hire the best people we can find, we pay them well, and we do our best to take care of them and their families. Our employees are our most important asset; without them, we wouldn’t have a business.
We don’t really care about competitors because we never think about them. If a competitor does something better than us, then that’s great – now we have something new to aspire to.
We’ve been profitable since day one, which means that our first priority is not pleasing investors – it’s pleasing you, our customers.”

Our team members are passionate about creating and delivering products that make life easier, better, and more fun.

What does Peppercorn offer?
Peppercorn offers affordable web hosting and domain name registration services for individuals and businesses. We also provide custom website design services for those who don’t have the time or skills necessary to create a website themselves, or just want a unique look for their website.
Peppercorn was founded in the early 20th century. The first peppercorn store opened on Fifth Avenue in New York City, and we had been cooking ever since.
The idea behind Peppercorn is that everyone deserves great tasting food at an affordable price. We also believe that every customer’s happiness is important and should be taken seriously. Our staff is trained to make every visit as enjoyable as possible and to always give the best service possible.
Peppercorn can satisfy any appetite. Our menu includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks from appetizers to desserts. All of which can be made in a timely fashion so no one ever has to wait too long for a meal they love.
We take pride in our store because it is the place where people come to relax after a long day of work, or just to socialize with friends and family over delicious food and drinks.
A company’s philosophy is like a compass: it points to True North. It helps us know where we’re going and what we stand for. And when the winds shift, it helps us readjust our sails and get back on course.
Our philosophy is based on two key principles:
1) “Do the right thing.”
2) “Focus on the most important things first.” Doing the right thing means prioritizing what’s most important to you, whether that be your business, family, or any other aspect of your life. And then focusing on that first. We wear lots of hats everyday and it’s easy to lose focus on what’s truly important. By doing the right thing, we can ensure we’re always making progress towards our goals.
Focus doesn’t mean ignoring everything else. It just means understanding the value of each task and then ranking them in terms of importance. The highest-value tasks are what you should work on first.
By doing this, you’ll find yourself making progress towards your goals in a much faster way than if you’re just trying to do everything at once. This is especially true for entrepreneurs who have big ideas and lots of things they want to accomplish with their time and money.
We’re Peppercorn, a software and marketing consultancy. We’re here to help you get big wins for your business.
As our first post, we figured we should introduce ourselves and the kind of company we aim to be.
In short: we want to help you accomplish your goals. We’re not going to brag about how smart we are and all the great things we can do. Instead, we’re going to focus on what you need and how we can help you get it. Our success is measured by your success.
We like to work with people who share our values. If a client’s goals don’t align with ours, then it probably won’t be a good fit. Here are some of our core values that guide us in our decision-making:
Trustworthiness – Our word is our bond, and we expect the same from our clients.*Win-win -* We believe that sustainable business happens when everyone benefits. If one side wins at the expense of the other, it will catch up eventually.*Good communication -* We believe that good communication is key to building trust with clients and solving problems effectively.*Simplicity -* Simpl
