Elevated Worldwide was founded when Tony Child recognized the need to not just provide great information to individuals but to teach, coach and guide individuals and teams through a proven process. It is based on years of research and the experience of some the world’s greatest thought leaders on the subjects of success, positive psychology, and leadership. Elevated Worldwide is centered in providing systems that change people, not just events that motivate people.

In his role as a sales manager, Tony created and facilitated training for over 20 offices and more than 100 employees.

Frances Wayman

Fulfillment Manager

Frances joined the Elevated Worldwide team in January 2017, with a unique transition from client to team member. As a specialist in the field of client fulfillment, Frances fully understands how vital the inner workings of an organization are. The seemingly small and insignificant, even "bothersome," tasks and gestures that make a client's interaction just that much more enjoyable, are her specialty. She has worked in the support field for well over eight years and her experience varies from position to position, but her goal is always the same: to leave those she comes in contact with better than she found them, through "above and beyond" customer service and generosity, thorough and pleasant followup, consistent and dependable task management, and by carrying an uplifting and encouraging spirit at all times. She currently lives in Riverton, Utah with her husband Matthew.  They recently welcomed their first child, a boy, into their home.
