Community

Regardless of how you define community, there is one common thread: people.

We are committed our community and the people in it. With two of our core values involving the community, we take responsibility and care as fellow members of our community to lend a hand, give where needed, and support local business in their growth. Communities are helpful to join or create because they provide support to the individuals who are impacted by the daily stress, struggles and chaos of modern life. Your neighborhood is a community, your gym or your professional organization could also be a community.

It makes sense that the communities we gravitate toward, both personally and professionally, are made up of like-minded people who make us feel uplifted, encouraged, inspired, and supported.

We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.

― Haile Selassie, Former Emperor of Ethiopia

Having a community is having your own personalized support group.

Our environment has a serious impact on who we are as a person. Motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously said, “We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.” Having a strong support network in place can influence your thinking and make you more likely to achieve your goals.
