We believe that our first responsibility is to the entrepreneurs, the creative thinkers, the innovators and the risk takers. Our service will always stay true to facilitating resources that align passion and purpose with action and success. We must constantly strive to adapt our service to each individuals’ needs, and provide invaluable lessons pertaining to all facets of life and business. We will build and protect a cultural movement that will inspire future generations.
Our second responsibility is to those who work with us. The men and women who make a conscious choice to align their life and their career with our mission. As the old saying goes, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. No one will ever feel inferior, unimportant, or as if their opinions don’t matter. We will empower our team to think outside the box, to become problem solvers, to have opportunity to control their own destiny and know they have full support from our leaders.
Our third responsibility is to our management. Our executives must be persons of high emotional intelligence, self awareness, and fairness. They must never stop learning, stop growing, stop taking risks, and stop investing in themselves. They must be genuine, authentic, talented and experienced. They must have the ability to quickly adapt to unforeseen obstacles. They must strive to reach a higher level of consciousness and embody each value Fownders holds in its core.
Our fourth responsibility is to the communities in which we operate and live. We must be outstanding citizens – supporting work and charity and giving back without hesitation. We must maintain impeccable order within the property we are privileged to use. We must participate in promotion of civic improvement, health, education, and good government, and acquaint the community with our activities.
Our fifth and last responsibility is to our stockholders. As a social enterprise, we can be most effective when our business is most profitable. We cannot support others if we cannot sustainably support ourselves. For someone to believe in our future and continued success, is the ultimate compliment for which we will spend our days working to repay. There are millions of opportunities one can invest in and we will not take lightly that people have chosen us to provide them with tangible returns.
This is our credo, our doctrine, our guidance, and our promise. To be a Fownder is to own one’s destiny. We live through our intuition and a burning desire to leave an everlasting footprint on this earth. Our destiny is to positively impact the world we live, and leave it a better place than we found it. These guiding principles will empower us to advance and evolve. Leadership is more than an action – it is the full capacity to take dreams and turn them into reality.
