There is a plan for everyone!

How do you measure success?
We believe that, by trying hard to live by the following tenets, we will be more successful, healthy, and happy as individuals and as a community.


Eight Keys of Excellence

1.  INTEGRITY:  Your behavior matches your values.
2.  OWNERSHIP:  Be accountable and taking responsibility for your actions.
3.  FLEXIBILITY:  Life happens, and we need the ability to adjust and adapt to the unexpected.
4.  BALANCE:  Align body, mind, and spirit; balance work and fun.
5.  COMMITMENT:  Follow a vision, fulfill promises, and complete what you begin.
6.  THIS IS IT!  Make the most of every moment, including this one.
7.  FAILURE LEADS TO SUCCESS:  Failures are feedback.  Learn from them.
8.  SPEAK WITH GOOD PURPOSE:  Say what you mean, mean what you say, and choose your words for their positive impact.


Fish Philosophy

Those crazy, fish tossing folks at the Pike Place Market taught us a (nearly) foolproof way to make every day better for yourself and everyone around you:

Play              Be There               Make Their Day              Choose Your Attitude


Warrior Creed

Wherever I go, everyone is a little safer because I am there.
Wherever I am, anyone in need has a friend.
Whenever I return, everyone is happy I am there.
It's a better life!
