In Progress: The Amateur Entrepreneurship Journey

With In Progress, we want to inspire positive change by challenging the norms and encouraging people to Do It Live! and be true to themselves. By documenting the entrepreneurship journey at QuadRipple, we are holding ourselves accountable to achieving success and fulfillment along the way while providing distinct value to our clients and friends.

In Progress is a documentary mainly filmed in Calgary, Alberta that showcases the lives of entrepreneurs and business partners Husam Al-rameeni and Steve Paolasini. This business partnership is legally known as QuadRipple, charitably as the Do It Live! gents, the Boys according to some, the Dream Team from an old supervisor and now, the In Progress guys. Yes we are business partners, yes we are long-time friends from university and of course we’re business partners too! The vision behind this documentary is to inspire and provide value to entrepreneurs and anybody else grinding it out like us. It also serves to add a level of transparency to QuadRipple that nobody else is offering in our space; providing distinct value and insight to our current and future clients. We have a unique lifestyle as you’ll see with In Progress; it’s about as a far from a 9-5 as you can possibly get. By documenting our lives, our work, our experiences and the progress of our company, we can facilitate and inspire change and positively impact the lives of as many people as possible who give us their eyes and ears. Anyone can find value in this series whether it’s through humour, lessons on a growing company, inspiration, motivation, the drama between two business partners, friends and roommates, or all the above, we hope you enjoy it.
