Why Is Being an Entrepreneur So Great? Not the Reasons You Think.

Why is being an entrepreneur so great? As it turns out, the answers might not be the first that come to mind.

In the most fundamental sense, entrepreneurship allows you bring something new into the world. I know that a particular product and service exist in the world because of the hard work I've invested. There is a great sense of pride in knowing that I've met somebody's needs and made their life easier. People who use my product derive a certain value from it, and this ultimately represents the broader utility of my entrepreneurial endeavors.

Team OnSIP Beats Fundraising Goal for Lupus Walk

After raising over $2,290 in donations, Team OnSIP rose bright and early on Saturday to participate in the 2014 Lupus Walk at MetLife Stadium. Sponsored by the Alliance for Lupus Research, the walk will fund medical research to find better treatments and ultimately prevent and cure systemic lupus.

The walk was a way for OnSIP to give to a cause that affects one of our own employees. Throughout the week, volunteers posted their donation goals on the team page, and other employees in the office pooled money together to fund each walker. OnSIP ultimately surpassed its team goal of $2,000 dollars by over $290 dollars.

OnSIP's New York Office Praises the Keurig Overlord

Coffee and its tasty variants are an integral part of any office. Well, there's probably at least one office in the United States where no one drinks it. But that office is not OnSIP NYC. The Keurig, suffering from no lack of usage, can usually be heard gurgling in our office kitchen. It's worked to the max during marathon coding sessions, and now OnSIP has decided to pay homage to it by reminiscing about some our favorite K-Cups.
