Inspired

We do what we love and are connected to something greater than ourselves.

Entrepreneurial

We are creators, leaders and self-starters.  We try new things; we challenge convention; and we’re not afraid to fail.

Authentic

We are genuine to our brand, mission and values.  We’re not perfect and we don’t pretend to be.  We are, though, always honest and as transparent as we can be.

Tenacious

We never settle.  We get sh*t done and we get it done well.  Be persistent and knock down walls – literally if you have to.  You have our permission.

We are grateful for each other, our members, and to be part of this movement.  We don’t take success for granted.  We’re happy to be alive.

We are in this together.  This is a team effort.  We always look out for one another. We value empathy; we know we’re all human, and know we can’t do any of this alone.
