“Our mission is to create happiness — and I have held that close to my heart since day 1 at GoWP. That applies to our team, our customers, and our community. And when it comes to developing new services for our customers — we always start with, ‘how can we create more happiness for an agency owner?’ And from there, the ideas for new services flow. It’s a really fun and beneficial process when it’s framed in that context.” – Emily Hunkler
