Mission Statement

“To help companies become more visible, trustworthy and appealing to their customers”

Company Philosophy

Equality

BRIDDLE rejects the (self)proclaimed superiority (or inferiority) of any group of people over others. This includes but is not limited to religion, ideology, race, sexual orientation, gender, politics, socio-economic class, nationality, age, physical ability or appearance, etc. There is no such thing as a group of "better humans". It does not exist.

Space

Freedom only exists if there is choice  and if there is a space for conflicting choices to materialise.

All of these different groups of people should have the freedom to live in whatever way that they want to live but BRIDDLE recognises that it is not always possible to do so within the same space. Some combinations simply do not match.

Authenticity

BRIDDLE understands that the majority of people are no innocent bystanders but share a collective responsibility for the actions of all members in their respective groups. It is the cowardism and opportunism of the other members in a group that give individuals the justification to impose whatever beliefs are dominant within that group onto others. This is why free speech is so important and why no group is entitled to safe spaces, trigger warnings or blasphemy laws.

It is natural for people to surround themselves with people who they have something in common with. This creates a sense of community and belonging. But be authentic. Do not let a group define who you are or limit what you can be.

  • By being authentic about who you are you become more visible to people who you have something in common with and you also have something new to offer them.
  • By being authentic about who you are you become more trustworthy to people you have something in common with and you also have something new to offer them.
  • By being authentic about who you are you become more appealing to people you have something in common with and you also have something new to offer them.

Code of ethics

Equality

I strongly believe that the relationship that I have with my customers is one based on equality. Customers who feel superior to me because they pay in money and I pay in time are incompatible with my code of ethics.

Space

I take pride in the services I provide and the products that I create. Because of this, I cannot be the cheapest. Anything that is free or cheap implies that it has little or no value. I do not offer products or services that have little or no value.

I do not offer discounts on work for individual clients but I do sometimes contribute valuable products or services to the community at a discount or for free. 

Authenticity

Groups do not allow people to achieve great things. Groups benefit from the achievements of great people.

I do not work with just anybody and carefully select the people I want to work with. I find that this fosters a more pleasant and productive environment for me to work in and produces better results.

When I work with you, it is not my job to tell you what you want to hear or simply do what you say. You do not pay me to do something, you pay me to achieve something. I can only do that if you value my opinion.

I do not believe in automatic payments. Any subscriptions that I offer are billed upfront annually and I want you to make a conscious descision to renew them.
