“It is said that there are two great days in a person’s life. The day that they are born, and the day they discover why." - William Barclay

Jason’s Personal Note and Beliefs

The future will require all successful leaders to be completely transparent. To be an authentic leader for tomorrow, it is required. We simply see too many business, political, and community leaders go awry and fail. The problem is simple, their beliefs and values are not aligned with their actions.

Below, I have outlined my foundational beliefs and values. This is who I am and what I believe. To be completely clear, I have defined, in my own terms, what each mean to me.

Foundational Beliefs – Unchanging, deep rooted common denominators in my life. The “territory.”

Values – These guide my behavior. This is my personal “map.”


My Foundational Beliefs; I believe

  1. In faith and spirituality – There is a higher power, from whom all of the natural laws were created and who is the voice of our conscience.
  2. In a healthy lifestyle.
  3. In people – My family, friends, and creating lasting relationships.
  4. In creating value in my work and community.
  5. In freedom. Freedom to choose, freedom to respond and the freedom to change.
  6. In leadership. It is sacred. The only title one should aspire to.
  7. In having fun.


  1. Integrity. The only real brand you have is the promises you make and the promises you keep. I keep my promises.
  2. Respect. To honor others’ beliefs. I respect other’s beliefs system, values and I respect human dignity.
  3. Grit. Having courage, drive, persistence. I have the courage to do what is right, when it is right, and I will never give up.
  4. Gratitude. I am thankful for all experiences – good and bad – and for all the people in and out of my life.
  5. Humility. Knowing who I am and staying grounded to that person. I am authentic.
  6. Change. The only thing constant is change. I learn, grow, am agile and I find innovation at every opportunity.
  7. Responsibility. I am responsible for my own success.
