Wouldn’t we all like to Quantum Leap into success? The dream is that one marketing campaign, phone call, or contact will create a vast increase in our business and Voila! We’ve arrived.

But that isn’t how our careers or business development works. If you recall the popular television show Quantum Leap from the late ’90s, you’ll remember that the central character created a time travel machine. Although the machine worked, the character found that the more he traveled, the more work he had to do.  

In a way, this week’s podcast guest, Frank Carlisi, Founder and Creative Director of The ExV Agency’s path to entrepreneurship, is similar to the show Quantum Leap. 

This New York native began his career in healthcare following in his family’s footsteps, but this wasn’t his passion. Through various career transitions and reinventions, this fiercely creative entrepreneur discovered that culinary art and connecting people was where his true talent resided.  

In this interview, I sit down with Frank to discuss the many leaps he’s made over the years that brought him here. Frank’s ExV Agency merges Event Planning and Business Development to help brands and individuals communicate their message through creative events.
