Being a successful businessperson is about more than dollars and cents, profits and losses. Businesses are built by gaining the trust and respect of the customers that are the very lifeblood of the venture. Obviously, without well served and happy customers and clients, no business can survive for very long. Responsibility to the public goes beyond just the standard business transaction. Being a responsible corporate citizen means giving back to the community that has given so much to the business community. The business owner that learns that lesson the fastest is the one that is not only going to survive, but thrive on the goodwill created through charitable actions.

Medved has been able to capitalize on his relationships with other corporate charities from Ford Motor Company and General Motors to sponsor events like offering test drives for school improvements, sponsoring you baseball and soccer leagues, sponsoring the Downtown Merchants Association's summer events and being a major sponsor of the Douglas County Fair and Rodeo.
