"FTBA? What does that mean?" I've heard that a lot.
How in the world did I come up with Fun To Be Around as a name for an electrical maintenance company? Let me give you some background.
I believe that life is short, and that most people desire to live life to the fullest.
They go to work.
Do what is required.
And think they can only have fun on the weekends.
Having fun at work happens on occasion but in my opinion not enough. I decided I wasn’t going to wait for the weekend to have fun. I needed to be fun more than that.
Having fun for me is about attitude. I wanted my attitude to be about having fun every day. So, many years ago I started putting the initials FtBA after my signature. It was a daily reminder that I needed to be Fun To Be Around.
Engineers, presidents, friends, and clients googled the initials to find out what degree these initials were indicative of. It was hilarious to hear their reaction when I told them it was a self-proclaimed degree to impact people’s lives with fun. It was a source of laughter almost every time I explained it. I would then encourage them to be on the FTBA team.
The number of the people on the team are growing, and I hope it becomes a movement. You can be on the FTBA team no matter where you are or what company you work for. It's about changing your life, and the lives of those around you, with fun each day. I hope you will consider being a part of the FTBA team!
If you need a speaker at your next event, I would love to motivate you and the people in your organization to join our movement and take the FTBA lifestyle to
How fun would that be?
