What Values do we stand for?
Repetition is the Mother of Mastery...
Over the past few weeks I have been on a deep dive of re-evaluating the work I am doing with Experience Tiny Homes. Being an entrepreneur has it's own glory and challenges but as long as I know why I am putting in the effort it makes the challenges less and the glory even more.
One of the ways to get a better viewpoint on the WHY I am doing this is knowing my VALUES and knowing that all the choices I make for my business needs to be put under the lens of my values.
TO that effect here are the core values Experience Tiny Homes stands for...
We stand for SUSTAINABILITY...
Planet earth gives us everything from the air we breathe, to the water we drink, to the food we eat, to the fuel source that allows us to communicate through this medium. Our planet will be here long after we leave. The major questions that face us are... How long do we wish to stay? What resources do we wish to leave for our future generations? Once we answer the first two questions, will we do what it takes to change our consuming and destructive behaviors?
We stand for COMMUNITY...
We love being around people and creating community with the common goal of Tiny Homes as affordable housing. In order to live our best lives, we need a community of people who are positive, inclusive, supportive and inspiring.
We stand for AUTONOMY...
We get to choose how we wish to live. We get the right to rightsize our American Dream and if that is under 400 sq. feet then so be it...it's for us to choose.
We stand for DIVERSITY...
Diversity is how our country was formed, in fact it is the one thing that makes us the strongest. We stand for the inclusivity of all colors, race and religion. Tiny Homes have the opportunity to break down the racial and financial barriers and mindset that have divided us for far too long. #Alllivesmatter and #blacklivesmatter
We stand for ADVOCACY...
Our country is founded on different viewpoints. Heck we chose not to follow the British flag because we wanted to do it our own way and get the opportunity to figure it out for ourselves. Some of us are gifted with the ability to lead, research and communicate all of those skills are needed when we speak up for ourselves and for others we may never know.
We stand for GENEROSITY...
Giving our time, ideas and resources is one of the best feelings. To help someone else without expectation gives back a sense of gratitude and community. We are generous because it feels so good to support another person along their journey.
Thank you Jonathan Sugai, Dr. John DeMartini and Jennifer Kem for being my teachers of values based work!
