Frontier Portrait: Grant Millsaps
Lead Consultant and Facilitator
In a sentence (or two), describe your role at Frontier.
I get to help build a better workplace for our clients. Ultimately, I get to help people, and I love that. I am also lucky enough to work with some of the most humble and talented people I have ever had the honor of meeting. It's a dream come true.
Where is your happy place?
Anywhere with a little room to reflect, warm coffee in the morning, and a beverage of choice in the evening.
What is your favorite palindrome?
Can't say I have ever thought about this, but my wife's name is Anna so I would say that is my clear winner :)
If you could have dinner with anyone, who would you dine with and why?
Now this I have thought about before: John Lennon. I have always been amazed by the work he created and how his career evolved.
Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Without question it’s frozen pizza. Preferably of the gourmet variety: Tombstone. It is a true throwback to my childhood, and I love one at the end of a stressful week (much to my wife's chagrin).
Do you have any pets? Tell us about them.
Graham is our pup. He is a mix of a GSP and a Bassett Hound. He is equal parts adorable and stubborn. That is good thing, because otherwise he would drive us crazy. His sweet face makes up for it.
Book smart or street smart?
How would you sell hot chocolate in Florida?
I would develop a strategy to find the highest density of retirement communities with clubhouses. I would then build my schedule and location plans around their most popular activities at the clubhouses. Following that, I would develop the best possible recipe for spiked hot chocolate. Next: Clubhouse social life domination.
What motivates you to show up and do your best work?
First and foremost, our team. They inspire me, and I hustle because I know they are doing the same for me. Secondly, our clients give us such a unique opportunity to support them. Those opportunities excite me every single day.
What is your favorite thing about working for Frontier?
The moments in between it all. Quick chats over coffee, stories of our weekends, recaps of a week with clients, and laughing at ourselves. Those small things that make our culture and this place unique. Those are the moments that I always remember on the long days.
What’s the fuel that keeps you going?
Knowing that I get to do it all again tomorrow. I know it sounds crazy, but I love what we do and I feel lucky to do it.
Early or late to meetings?
