“We want people to learn for their own interests, and for business reasons as well. We created an improv class. It was fun, but it also helped students with their presentation skills. From the start, we wanted Fools to teach whatever they were learning. For example, someone teaches a class on meat butchering, and a Fool taught a photography class.”
- Roger Friedman
"My favorite part about The Motley Fool is that I get to be myself at work — even if that includes dressing in a kangaroo suit and high-fiving the whole company as they walk into a movie theater for a companywide meeting. The Fool gives me opportunities every day to simply enjoy life."
- Mike Pena
"The Motley Fool will pay for your books. Fiction? Yes. Non-fiction? Yes. Work-related? Yes. Non-work-related? Yes. Past book requests include "Parentology," "The Hobbit," and “Focus.”"
- Christine Noonan
“I’ve always loved games and puzzles. Since I was a kid, I've tried to get people to do something fun or different. I had a conversation with Tom Gardner about how I could possibly craft a role that incorporates what I love doing. That’s how I came up with this job: I get people together and solve challenges. It’s a great fit.”
- Todd Etter
"Fools can create whatever schedule works for them. I’m a parent, so it’s great for me to sneak out and see a soccer game or a play and come back to work. I think the way people work in our modern society, there is no real set 9 to 5 work day anyway, and especially in an online company like ours."
