In Newport, Oregon March 3, 2018 iChange Nations™ launched the first of its kind, the Global Golden Rule Business Initiative. Honoring local community businesses for their Golden Rule ethics in business. Recognizing local businesses for their great business ethics is at the forefront of a movement ICN is initiating to bring the culture of honor to communities around the world.


iChange Nations™ believes that honoring, where honor is due, changes the atmosphere of communities, regions and nations. Newport will become a template to give all small communities a model of how honor changes a community. Showing that honor inspires others to accomplish a greater level of integrity and service to their community. This in turn betters the life of the community and it’s residents.


Among the business honored in this first Golden Rule Business Honor Event were businesses in the construction trades, restaurants, storage, health and vitamins, an Asian Market, hotel, CPA, Dental Care and more. Showing that all communities have a plethora of businesses that contribute to the life of a community and that many work hard and need recognition for their contribution to their communities. ICN knows that by honoring businesses that are exemplifying Golden Rule Ethics, they are taking their place in a global responsibility. The local is now global and does affect the world around us. Dr. Rivers plans on seeing this template reach the world, propagating the Golden Rule Culture of Honor in businesses that originated out of Lincoln County, Oregon. The Local businessmen Mike Dean, John Robinson, Mike Pitzl and Scot Waggnor were the initiators of this movement with ICN out of Lincoln County.


Dr. Clyde Rivers is the Founder and President of IChange Nations™ a professional institution that is establishing cultures of honor globally, earning iChange Nations™ the title of the “Largest Network Establishing Cultures of Honor in the World.” iChange Nations™ honor systems are in over 120 nations. http://ichangenations.org/
