Our Fundamental Values

Massive progress is never made by the majority peacefully deciding to get better. Advancements, improvements and giant leaps forward for mankind have always been brutal, painful as well as dangerous. The individuals and groups of caring people who choose to boldly move forward in spite of those deep risks are brothers- and sisters-in-arms with us.


Adding value to individuals, society and the world is Priority One. Improving standards of living, empowering positive communities and inspiring the next-generations to do even better are fundamental human qualities, albeit often de-prioritized. We make it fundamental to each task we're a part of.


It is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to the weak, and esteem to all. It precedes all worthwhile habits. It forges through despite overwhelming odds. "Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment." --Jim Rohn
