Only A-Players
At Keyword LLC because of the freedom and from home opportunities we give to our staff, we can only work with A players.

B and C players are people that take advantage of freedom, push off work to others, and do as much work as they are “required” to do or as little as possible.

There is NO single bigger way to ruin a team of A-players than forcing them to pick up the slack of B & C players

This is especially true in our virtual office. Every person must behold themselves to A-level performance because we do not have time to monitor or motivate B & C players.
