Over the course of years there have been several books and teachings that have helped shape, influence, or otherwise bolster the ideas that make RQ who and what she is.
Read about the military bases where we are working and bidding.
The financial results of 2021 are almost a completed footnote to the RQ story. However, considering the business environment, the events in peoples lives, and the unusual times that we are in, these are not footnotes, they are essentially a book.
Saint Augustine of Hippo held the most prestigious academic position in the Roman Empire before forsaking it, soon becoming bishop of the not-so-famous city of Hippo in northern Africa.
Many people in RQ and associated with RQ may not know that everything we do is for a reason, and that includes projects we pursue. It may not “feel” that way, but a lot of thought goes into the projects we pursue.
Success is an interesting concept. If viewed in narrow sense, it is pretty easy to grasp. You have a goal, and if you achieve that goal, you have achieved success. If viewed dynamically, success is a process…
2020, a year that will go down in infamy! Is that too strong a statement? It doesn’t feel like it. It is almost impossible to review the entire year in this issue of the Flywheel.

RQ is embarking on a lot of newness. A new office building in Carlsbad to accommodate our growing workload which will mean new commutes, new desks, new lunch and coffee spots, etc. Yet there is more.

I had stopped breathing. My heart had stopped beating. My mom gave me CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and I lived.
