At Foundation Training, there is no such thing as ‘business as usual’.
We have an unwavering commitment and passion to help our clients heal themselves and live a pain-free life…
… so that we can all enjoy ourselves and make the most out of our lives.
In fact, we’re so committed to improving the lives of our tribe, that we define our success by how much we can contribute to the world, not how much the world contributes to us.
Our co-founder and CEO, Ian Silverberg, has a firm belief that a business is simply one tool to help share your solution with the world…
…a value exchange machine if you will.
And, that building a great business is more about giving and contributing than it is about taking and receiving…
Giving great solutions to real problems…
Providing a fun, nurturing and positive culture for a team to flourish…
Contributing to the well being of our community…
Sure, we need strategies, systems, metrics, sales and all that other stuff to help us deliver incredible value and prioritize the right actions (which is really, really, really hard work).
But without having a clear idea of how we improve someone’s life, and an unwavering commitment to doing what it takes to get that done, none of the other stuff matters… it’s simply unsustainable.
Great businesses can be large, or small…. Online or a storefront.
They don’t grow for the sake of growing, or randomly discount their value or switch lanes on a whim.
Great businesses provide an experience where you feel you received way more value than you gave. Where you were understood and supported in your mission, whatever it may be. Where it was almost like they knew what you wanted before you even asked.
It’s that restaurant that remembers just how you like your food prepared, or brings you that special dessert on your anniversary on the house.
It’s that clothing store that reminds you of their no hassle return policy, even though you forgot you never returned the item for over a year (thank you Patagonia!).
Or it’s that Doctor, trainer, or consultant that really understands your plight and gives you that perspective that allows you to break through.
Now we don’t claim to be there yet, but that’s where we have our sights set.
We know we still have a lot of work to do to get there, and we plan to have a lot of fun along the way (hopefully not at your expense 🙂 ).
Come join us!
We are creating a community of people:
- Who want to look for answers within their own bodies
- Who are committed to creating a balanced life
- Who want to take responsibility for living a great life
- Who want to make reasonable, informed decisions to positively inform their lifestyle
- Who love to have fun and enjoy life
- Who respect people and nature
- Who are grateful for our amazing bodies
- Who want to develop their natural strength
- Who want to live life to the fullest (whatever that means to you)
