What are YCR's mission, vision and value statements?

Over the past week I was busy trying to plan for YCR's future, but it was a difficult task because I didn't have a focus. So this weekend, I took time to figure out what's most important for YCR. That led me down the path of developing a mission, vision and value statement that we'll use in order to make decisions.

If you haven't already done so for your company, I highly recommend that you take the time to create the aforementioned statements. It will help you plan and prioritize for your company's future.

In addition to hanging the statements on my wall, I permanently posted them on the About page, but for your convenience you can check it out here:
