Meet Elizabeth

Here’s what I LOVE TO DO…

Hi, I’m Elizabeth Ellames and my message for living a full life is: “Master your talents, create your art, give generously and never give up on loved ones or yourself… This is the only way I know how to do life and lead me to create a personal development tool called Living Attributes Typology, which consists of specific Modern and Mythic Archetypes. It’s a tool that defines and refines your true potential and purpose in life. Which inspired me to create another platform for my work – REAL DEAL Productions, Aust.

My role is to awaken people to Living A Larger Story, through identifying their values and personal brand – I have an extensive skill base crossing; Personal Branding, Social Synergy and Self Development.

I have a few quirky talents; Pattern Recognition and Trend Forecasting 

Definition of Pattern Recognition – involves identification of faces, objects, words, images, sounds etc. The visual system does more than just interpret forms, contours, and colors. Pattern recognition refers to the process of recognizing a set of energy patterns arranged in a certain pattern that is characteristic of that set of stimuli or prototype. Pattern recognition does not occur instantly, although it does happen automatically and spontaneously.  Hence my skill set around Archetypal Patterning

Definition of Trend Forecasting is the practice of observing information; behaviors, lifestyles, needs, and choices and then attempting to spot a pattern, or trend, in the information. It can be applied to commercial and social environments and aides in the development of contemporary culture. Trend forecasting is observation and application. Hence my skill set around Narrative Development and Story-Based Branding 




Culture is a powerful element in becoming a New Style Leader. Creating new and exciting cultures for humanity is the Cultivators ultimate quest. I build a culture around my brand, which strengthens my leadership. People love to belong to something that is progressive and traditional at the same time. I create cultures that support my community.

Culture Builds Longevity In Your Leadership.
