YOU BEING YOU

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

We are committed to empowering people to step into the fullness of their identity. We believe all people are wonderful, vibrant, complex, and unique creations – and it is our joy to facilitate a discovery process which will equip and embolden them towards true fulfillment in life.

In any given year you will spend roughly one third of your hours sleeping, and one third of your hours at work. For many of us, a significant number of the remaining hours are spent preparing for those activities! So we have two life changing suggestions: invest in a wonderful mattress, and find a job which suits you well.

Even quality mattresses come down to personal preference and unique fit based on individual style. Why would you settle for a career that you awkwardly stumbled into? Get the most enjoyment in life by absolutely LOVING your job and start your journey with a deeper understanding of YOU.

jobQ CORE VALUES

INDIVIDUALITY

We believe that magical things happen when you feel comfortable in your own skin.

“Today you are YOU, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you!”

Dr. Seuss

PASSION

We choose to work from a place of passion, and not for a paycheck. We highly recommend it.

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.”

Howard Thurman

GENEROSITY

Generosity is good business. And it is part of our mandate to make the world a better place. 

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”

Jewish Proverb

EMPOWERMENT

We strive to be a company rich in wisdom and insight, to propel our clients and customers to growing degrees of excellence.

“As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.”

Bill Gates

FUN

You can have the most fun when you have the most freedom. You have the most freedom when you are in the right place.

“When you stop doing things for fun, you might as well be dead.”

Ernest Hemmingway
