We had the good fortune of connecting with Quinton Stephens and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Quinton, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Our community is the engine behind our success. The whole reason why Treasure Quest Effect exists is to expose and empower our community to new perspectives. Every time someone interacts with our boxes they have the chance to be empowered and impact someone else. It’s great when our community shares quotes they love and place our little boxes in their neighborhoods for others to find the treasures inside of them.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
While playing professional basketball in Spain and with the support from the team owners, TQE messages were shared with fans at the home games!

Currently, I am working at SalesLoft in Atlanta as an enterprise sales rep in the financial services division. A huge lesson that continues to come up in my day to day is the power of play and positivity!

Everyone should know that they can contribute to this world through their art, perspective and even by planting a seed.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to shout-out Tiny Doors of Atlanta. A seed was planted in my mind when I saw a little display along the Atlanta BeltLine.

Treasure Quest Effect opens the door for people to plant seeds in their mind with new perspectives and in the ground through our plantable messages.
