John Stix and Jody Schnarr walk through the offices of the telecommunications company they founded 10 years ago, handing out cold glasses of Guinness after leading a rumba line during a barbecue lunch.

Every Friday, there is a celebration in the Fibernetics head office in Cambridge. A few times each week, Stix picks up baked goods on his way to the office and hands out the treats.

“A job gets you in the car in the morning, but passion gets you bouncing out of bed,” says Stix, president of the 250-employee firm.
