Are you connected?

Create COMMUNITY

Community is where you build your style of leadership. It is through your community that you see how your vision and talents as a new style leader benefit others. By creating a community you are enrolling others to support your leadership and vision as well as their own.

Community needs leadership.

Trust + Truth = Unity

Learning the importance of being connected and staying connected with people with whom you resonate with, is in fact what builds an effective community.

Trust + Truth = Unity

And It’s through our frequency of interaction and transparency, which eventually creates true prosperity. This is our new currency that also leads to greater levels of human resources.

At this level of connection, we enter a higher level of possibility and creativity, which is the nature and desire of the TribeTalker.

The only intention of the TribeTalker is to reach higher ground. They are the forward-thinking business owners, life coaches, trainers, students, presenters, and entrepreneurs, who want to see a change in our world by genuinely helping each other succeed.

Do you want to highlight your talents and promote your personal brand, through the power of edifying and unifying people?

If so, you are indeed part of this emerging breed of new style leaders.

Elizabeth is excited to be the facilitator of an authentic and amazing new way of being in a relationship, business and community.

We show you how your ability to share your life experiences with others gives you clarity and confidence to effectively share other people’s stories, which creates a currency between people that promotes true prosperity. This new way of being takes us out of the old Silo paradigm that promotes scarcity to a new and vibrant Tribe paradigm that promotes there is always enough, if we share.

And I genuinely believe we need to thank our bright new generation of individuals for this shift, they have arrived at the table with the thought provoking message…

“I don’t care what you know, until I know that you care”.

What a great way to live in relationship, business and community, which fits perfectly with the TribeTalkers creed of “We are what we share and we share if we care”

Look forward to meeting you at one of our events in the future 🙂

The Art Of Adding Value

The Real Deal seminars tagline is #TheArtOfAddingValue … which was inspired by an extraordinary man known as “Bucky”.

I came across Buckminster Fuller’s work over 20 years ago and it has never left me. His principles have stood the test of time and that is why I still quote Bucky today.

Here are just a few of his pearls of wisdom… I hope they also inspire you.

The purpose of our lives is to add value to the people of this generation and those that follow.
~ Buckminster Fuller

You can never learn less; you can only learn more. The reason I know so much is because I have made so many mistakes.
~ Buckminster Fuller

Everyone is born a genius, but the process of living de-geniuses them.
~ Buckminster Fuller

When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
~ Buckminster Fuller

Adding Value Is Good Business

Steve Jobs drew on many areas of social culture to see what the current trends were – and that’s because knowing what people value and desire in life, is what business is all about. If you forget what or why your business was created, your value will start to drop away.

Your Context Is Key !!

Be creative around your business and ask the important question…

“Why does my business exist?”

This question will always provide the appropriate WHAT, WHY and HOW to every solution. E.G.Ellames

 

WOMEN – Your Brand Is Your Love Affair With Life!

Whisper in Love, Weep with Love and Wish only for Love.

This is the Majesty and Language of the Heart.

What we really want is Real Deal freedom… a pure and undiluted version of freedom.

So, we need to create an impulse of SHE power (Spiritually Healthy Entrepreneurs)… And I believe it’s being in community that holds the freedom we are all looking for, not a stuffy, sticky or intrusive bunch of people who don’t know who they really are.

But rather, connecting to The Truth in each other and making real contact with those who understand our heart song… this is what we all long for.

And it’s our brands role to recognize the following, before we can truly connect with our tribe/audience.

  • We long for connection with all that is curious and creative.
  • We are creatures who belong to each other for reasons beyond analysis; it is our hearts desire and our life’s purpose to fulfill a worthy story.
  • We ache with a need to create or sadly the other is we become numb and indifferent.

I encourage us all to be courageously creative and connect to those who want to create with us. E.G.Ellames

Steves 7 Golden Rules

STEVE WALLPAPER 1 - mytrickytricks.blogspot

The Steve Jobs’ phenomena touched nearly every aspect of IT life; computers, movies, music and mobile. As a personal brand consultant I have observed Jobs presentation, values and style many times over – his unwavering commitment to creating quality was very inspiring. Perhaps Steve Jobs’ greatest legacy is the set of principles that drove his success.

Lets look deeper into the life and career of Steve Jobs’…

Here’s my view on his 7 golden rules and values underpinning his success.

NEXT REAL DEAL seminar – http://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/being-real-matters-the-art-of-being-present-tickets-8963777901

Any of us can adopt them to unleash our “creative master” within.

1. Do what you love. Steve Jobs once said, “People with passion can change the world for the better.” When asked about the advice he would offer new entrepreneurs, he said, “I’d get a job as a busboy or something until I figured out what I was really passionate about.” That’s how much it meant to him.

Passion is everything.

2. Put a dent in the universe. Steve Jobs believed in the power of vision. He once asked then-Pepsi President, John Sculley, “Do you want to spend your life selling sugar-water or do you want to change the world?”

Don’t lose sight of the big vision.

3. Make connections. Steve Jobs once said creativity is connecting things. What he meant was people with a broad set of life experiences can often see things that others miss. He took calligraphy classes that didn’t have any practical use in his life – until he built the Macintosh. Jobs traveled to India and Asia. He studied design and hospitality.

Don’t live your life in a bubble. Connect ideas from different fields.

4. Say no to 1,000 things. Steve Jobs was as proud of what Apple chose not to do as he was of what Apple did do. When he returned to Apple in 1997, he took a company with 350 products and reduced them to 10 products in a two-year period. Why? So he could put the “A-Team” on each product.

What are you saying “no” to?

5. Create insanely different experiences. Steve Jobs also sought innovation in the customer-service experience. When he first came up with the concept for the Apple Stores, he said they would be different because instead of just moving boxes, the stores would enrich lives. Everything about the experience you have when you walk into an Apple store is intended to enrich your life and to create an emotional connection between you and the Apple brand.

What are you doing to enrich the lives of your tribe/community/audience?

6. Master the message. You can have the greatest idea in the world, but if you can’t communicate your ideas, it doesn’t matter. Jobs was the world’s greatest corporate storyteller.

Instead of simply delivering a presentation like most people do, he informed, he educated, he inspired and he entertained, all in one presentation.

7. Sell dreams, not products. Jobs captured our imagination because he really understood his tribe/audience. He knew that tablets would not capture our imaginations if they were too complicated. The result? One button on the front of an iPad. It’s so simple, a 2-year-old can use it. Your tribe don’t care about your product. They care about how it makes them feel and if it connects to their hopes and ambitions.

Jobs taught us that if you help your tribe/audience reach their dreams, you’ll win them over… that’s what a TribeTalker© is. They’re someone who believes in what you believe in and have simular values; your from the same tribe.

And when you connect to a brand at that level you share your enthusiasm with others and demonstrate your gratitude. You organicly become a devoted TribeTalker©… just like I’m doing right now.

I love every thing about my MAC, because it connects me to what I stands for, which is beauty, quality, creativity and truth. That is why I am a TribeTalker© for Steve Jobs and iMac… thats just how it works.

We are what we share… and we share if we care! That’s the TribeTalker© creed.

Steve_Jobs_portrait_by_tumb

There’s a great story that sums up Steve Jobs’ career at Apple. An executive who had the job of reinventing the Disney Store once called up Jobs and asked for advice.

His advice was… DREAM BIGGER. (Steve was like Walt in so many ways) I think that’s the best advice he could leave us with.

Our motto at Real Deal seminars is… Dream It, Create it, Feel it, Live it.

I lend a quote from Steve’s huge success – “See the genius in your craziness, believe in yourself, believe in your vision, and be constantly prepared to defend those ideas.”

Vitality and Value

The process of developing your brand crosses 4 areas.

Personal and Professional

Social and Spiritual

Together they add vitality and value to your brand by defining, designing and delivering what it is your audience is looking for. It use to be what you wore that defined your first impressions.

Today your first impressions are defined by your web presence.

Define – More and more our audience is asking us to – Be Interesting, Be Truthful and to Live Our Truth.

Design – Past are the days of pointing out the inadequacies of your audience, we have now moved toward empowerment marketing. It’s time to design a clear message with authentic themes that your audience can resonate with.

Deliver – There may be many things to dislike about our level of technology today. But there are a few very powerful outcomes that have surfaced because of our current digital area.

Here are a few –

  • Speed of delivery
  • Transparency of persona
  • More with less
  • You are what you share

Each of these elements can contribute to the amazing driving force of “Adding Value”. We can now showcase what it is we like, dislike, desire and participate in whenever we want to and to whoever we want to – And it’s literally at our figure tips. But have our lives have become a wash of digital confusion? – With millions of people tweeting, liking, sharing, blogging and taking selfies.

Amongst all this device activity there is a quiet conversation emerging asking a few concerned questions, what’s all this activity for?

Are we coming close to a level of digital overload?

I believe we have arrived at these questions not because it’s all bad, but rather because we can’t see its true value yet. I was interested to find that social media has many elements that align with Globalization, which are – the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas, and other aspects of culture.

Social media may be operating at the virtual level, but never the less they are still aligned and social media were born at the same time as the onset of our latest version of Globalization, which emerged in the 1990s. You may be asking, but how are we going to resolve the accelerating dangers of world-opposed politicians and religious dogmas.

My answer is simply this… “by using our new technologies, plus our powerful instincts to truly connect with each other, coupled with the application of our creative potential we can indeed create a better humanity.” It will be through our ability to recognize and merge our powerful “human technologies” with our current technologies that will accelerate our potential growth as a species.
