Tonya Hofmann2015Tina Dietz

Imagine this . . . It’s official.  You’ve just gained enough influential connections to take your next project to a much bigger level. Sitting across the table from you is Lisa Mininni, maybe Colin Sprake or perhaps one of the call leaders whom you’ve heard on the collaboration calls but never actually met!  You’ve been dying to pick his her brain about how to go pandemic. At the next table are several more global personalities.  You are putting faces to names and know that there is so much collective knowledge packed into this room that smoke will indeed be rising before the end of the day.  You enjoy a rich conversation as you head over to the meeting room where you sit in a circle with other inspiring luminaries and enjoy a round of introductions – with each person somehow bringing something important and unique to the room.  The day is spent in meaningful and useful conversation and collaboration.  You stay up far too late that night scheming on ways you can collaborate and making notes of all the cool and easy things you can do to grow your business when you get home.

The end result? The Evolutionary Business Council (EBCouncil) is an invitation-only event where we are gathering some of the savviest, most leading-edge conscious emerging thought-leaders I know for a day of masterminding, learning from each other – and supporting each other wherever it’s a fit. You will grow your influence, build your mastermind groups, and create lifelong business relationships (and maybe even friendships) with other thought leaders who want to make a difference. If you take a look at who’s coming, I think you’ll agree there’s a good chance this will happen.

You will: – gain powerful alliances with others who are committed to teaching business and success principles; – compare and learn about powerful techniques other trainers, speakers and authors are using to grow their reach, including both traditional and social media; – have the opportunity to “sit on the hot seat” having the room brainstorm how to help you meet your immediate goals; – have a safe environment in which to expand your knowledge of the success principles and work on personal blocks that may be stopping you. If you are an invited guest, you will also have the opportunity to learn more about and join the Evolutionary Business Council in a more long term way if that feels like a fit for you.
