Southridge Capital’s Owner on Why He Loves Providing to Charitable Organizations
So many different personalities sit behind the cudgels of the largest and most successful charities all over the world. One notable personality who has manned the board of various charities is Stephen Hicks. Nevertheless, he is most associated with Southridge Capital (formerly known as Southridge Capital Management). Over and above his close ties with Southridge, he still manages to give trustworthy advice to the other charities he handles. His presence in these charities, along with other individuals who has the same ideals as he does, strengthens their convictions and only gives utmost assurance that they are doing everything they can to ensure that everyone they serve, those who are in dire need of their help, are justly benefited.
Stephen Hicks likewise has his own Daystar Foundation to which he shares his unquestionable proficiency. This foundation is his own “little” way of giving back to the community. When asked why he does all this, Stephen didn’t really give a straight answer. However, he did imply that giving back to others and the community is something that feels right and natural to him. In fact, the owner of Southridge Capital encourages others to do what they can for their community, to the extent of supporting a charitable institution they believe in. According to Stephen, “It’s what makes each of us a little better.”
The Southridge Capital Owner’s Take on Ridgefield, Connecticut
As a resident of Ridgefield, Connecticut, Stephen believes the place has the elements that made it New England’s model town. The people who live there are humble, exceptionally generous, and ideal neighbors. It’s a town where everyone is deeply concerned about their neighbors’ lives and looks out after each other’s kids the way they do their own. For this reason, Southridge Capital’s henchman says, “I’m proud to be part of that community.”
Why American Youths Need to Be Aware of Small Business
As someone who is very much business-oriented, Stephen Hicks feels that the young ones of America need to be made aware of why small businesses are crucial to the growth, development, and success of their country. He believes that both small and large businesses make the country what it is right now. This is the reason why Southridge Capital’s main man wants to sponsor an essay contest for different schools around the United States. He wants the young ones to be inspired and motivated about small business, business, as well as what it means to be a good corporate citizen like him. Details of this essay-writing contest will be announced soon.
Of his ideologies about life, here’s what the man that made Southridge Capital has to say:
“Years from now when I look back on my life…..”
“I hope to have built things that ‘mattered.’ I hope the business that I built—and those that I helped grow—are looked upon as honest, fair, and successful businesses that not only grew, but improved the lives of everyone that they came in contact with. Generations after I am gone, I hope that the values, ethics, and positive things I have done or at least tried to do in my time continue to be driven forward to help and grow those generations beyond the present. I want the words ‘trust’, ‘honesty’, and ‘fair’ to be on the lips of everyone who is in this business.” – Stephen M. Hicks
