“Purple is a great place to work because everyone on our team – from the founders to the interns – will roll up their sleeves to ensure our clients achieve their goals. You’ll never hear someone say, ‘that’s not my job,’ at Purple.”

“I love Purple’s approach to reputation management. Most firms focus on helping their clients tell their story better. At Purple, we help our clients tell a better story.”

“I think everyone should read Atomic Habits by James Clear. It taught me that small changes in behavior can produce meaningful and lasting results.”
