And yet, something is going on ...
~ You're working behind the curtain in support of others on the stage, when in fact you want to move to centre stage. You are not delivering your best stuff. It's tucked away inside of you because you've heard "You're too brilliant. People won't get what you're talking about!"
~ You've been joining others' swim lanes only to tread water, when in fact you seek to swim your own races. Your caught in the belief that when you align with other's programs you'll not be seen as the lead in program. You are the follow-up and people will be ready for your brilliance.
~ You've been taking unrelated work assignments to keep the lights on. And the rejection stings are piling. Actually, they are hurting more. You have a major case of procrastinitis. You're not fully expressing your brilliance.
We get it ...
Sharing My Recent Story
Five years ago, I left my CEO position to recreate my life. To focus on the design and delivery my Extraordinary Experiences (EX2) Platform.
Early on, I consulted on two multi-million dollar M&A projects (emphasis - workplace culture and people navigation). I instructed two leadership development projects in Ethiopia. And picked up a variety of projects with entrepreneurs.
However, the projects were becoming far and few between.
As a result, my rejection (and shame) feelings arrived with a vengeance. At the same time, I was hearing frequent statements like "You're too brilliant!" "Dumb it down if you want me to get it." and "Us mere mortals ,we get lost in what you're sharing."
While these statements are great marketing insights of a message not delivered in the words of my customers, I took them personally. I shrunk away from my life purpose. I slowed down, hid away, and worked from behind computer screen. I gave my time and effort way without fair exchange, didn't ask for support, and on some personal levels gave up.
Today, with the support of business mentors and coaches, and friends who get me ... I reclaim my brilliance and celebrate my achievements.
With the recent reimagining of my life, I recreated my business to extend the wellth-wealth movement on larger platforms including the use of virtual reality and AI. And, I refocused my philanthropic efforts to create a children and tree movement especially in locations where children do not have trees to shade them as they learn.
Now ... I focus on sharing my Extraordinary Experiences (EX2) Platform with entrepreneurs like YOU. To guide your inclusion of "experiences" into your product and service mix. And to encourage use of your brilliance to make a movement.
In other words ...

Comments from Wellth Travellers
Dr. Stephen Hobbs has helped me to articulate my business vision in much greater detail than I was able to initially explain. His attention to the meaning behind words is profound, as he is able to create a deep richness through making subtle changes to words and sentence structure. This richness added depth and value to my existing content. Steve told me not what I wanted to hear, but what I needed to hear, in a supportive and encouraging way. Steve taught me how to build a stronger foundation for my course platform, to deeply enrich the quality of the content provided, along with a tangible strategy for how to execute an implementation plan using a mentoring approach. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to increase the value of their existing course content or for anyone starting out and needing a solid structure to base their material on.
Strategy & Culture - Merger & Acquisition
Over the past eight years Cervus Equipment Corporation has been acquiring business-to-business equipment dealerships growing from fifteen to seventy-two locations across three countries. Each of the business acquired have ranged from one location to as many as twelve locations with up to three hundred and fifty employees.
As can be imagined the integration, aligning of Cultures, Operations and Strategy of these very diverse organizations has been an immense challenge. In the early days our ability to align the organizations was greatly hampered by our lack of experience and confidence in our own organization. We could see as an organization that the longer we struggled with misalignment of Culture’s and Strategies the more we were losing value and over stressing the system.
Upon some serious internal review and soul searching we decided to embark on a journey to build an Acquisition and Integration Model and support practices that would be second to none. Our goal was to create a set of repeatable processes that would support rapid execution of Integration, Cultural Identification and Clarity and development of the New Business Unit Strategy aligned with the Cervus of Tomorrow Vision. If we could accomplish this we would greatly improve the Time to Value on new acquisitions and greatly improve our ability to support rapid growth. Both becoming exceptional competitive advantages and defining core competencies of our team.
We started down this development path in 2011 by documenting all of our current process, reviewing past success and failures and reaching out to find specialized resources and experts. This is when we were introduced to Dr. Stephen Hobbs and the EX2 - TRIPIS Technique and Tools.
Stephen’s program and thinking was the catalyst to the exceptional success we have today. Leading us on a journey, Stephen’s process created a safe environment for the newly acquired team and the Cervus team to discuss the current realities of the culture, the business and the obstacles to reaching the Cervus of Tomorrow Vision. On the Journey we were able to create a set of celebrated mutual cultural attributes, a plan to enhance current successes and improve on the current business challenges. This work resulted in the development of our mutually agreed Five Year Strategy.
In each of the acquisitions where Stephen’s TRIPIS Program was used we have seen the integration time line significantly reduced along with cultural alignment and financial performance well beyond our expectations.
Without hesitation I would recommend Dr. Stephen Hobbs as a partner in any Cultural & Strategy work. His effectiveness, thinking, facilitation skills and integrity are exceptional.
