The team concept has been around since the beginning of time. It doesn’t matter    whether it’s within our families, tribes, communities, business or sports, we are all part of a team.   Working and cooperating as a team is key to bringing positive changes to us and our planet.  When you really put it in black and white, we didn’t choose our parents, our color, gender, religion, economic situation, part of the world we lived in when we were born, etc.  So what makes any of us better than anyone else?

It’s all about making informed choices!  Case in point: The Global Risks Report 2018, World Economic Forum quoted, “This generation enjoys unprecedented technological, scientific and financial resource…And yet this is perhaps the first-generation to take the world to the brink of a [political, economic, and environmental] breakdown.” According to a recent Oxfam International report, the eight richest people own the same amount of wealth as the poorer half of humanity. “Our broken economies,” said Oxfam, “are funneling wealth to a rich elite at the expense of the poorest in society, the majority of whom are women.” Some fear that the growing inequality might trigger social unrest. The National Alliance to End Homelessness. (2018) stated; “Family Homelessness is a growing social problem affecting families around the world. It is understood and manifests itself in diverse economic, social, cultural and even linguistic context globally and affects both the Global North and the Global South. In the USA it is estimated there are almost 60,000 families with children homeless on any given night, this means that 7.4 out of every 10,000 families are experiencing homelessness.” The Syndicate Coffee Team shows compassion by using freshly roasted specialty organic coffee with non-profit foundations to raise funds and bring awareness to health, economic, environmental, and social issues like the above.  In turn, we are making positive changes in our communities globally with Team Players like yourself!  So let’s shift focus off not just ourselves and look at the big picture, on what we can do and keep in mind it’s not our position but our disposition! SELF DISCIPLINE-RESPECT-ACCOUNTABLE-RESPONSIBLE Self-discipline is the ability to make yourself to do what you know you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not! Disciplined people know what has to be done and they do it. They don’t put it off until later or allow themselves to be easily taken off track.
