When asked what my business is, I simply reply,
"The People Business"
As the oldest of 6 siblings, I was destined for leadership. I was the kid who always got in trouble for talking in class. When asked what I wanted to do, the answer was “Sit behind a desk and tell others what to do”. This vision emerged throughout my career in various roles as corporate leader, speaker, coach and facilitator. After a 25 year career at Southwest Airlines, I ventured out as an entrepreneur and started a consulting firm (QVF Partners) and now Up to Something, LLC which provides a platform for individuals and organizations to broadcast their message.
The common denominator is “People”. Regardless of culture, industry, or demographics, people fundamentally want the same things… to contribute, be acknowledged for their value and to have opportunities for growth and development.
