Fearless Brand Workshop

30September13

Bill Ellis didn’t twist my arm to join his workshop at the Missouri Athletic Club West this week. In fact, I was thrilled to be invited, even though I was not completely sure what to expect. Visiting over coffee a few weeks ago, he had described the event as something that might help me sort out a few things with my professional life and maybe even offer a few hints for my personal business as well. I am a cynical marketing guy, so naturally I am careful to not take such claims too literally.

I first encountered Bill as a presenter at an event organized by Dixie Gillaspie (aka Ms. Dynamite) in October of 2011. At that event I also met the co-authors of The Go Giver (Bob Berg and John David Mann), The Name Tag Guy (Scott Ginsberg), MarketVolt founder (Tom Ruwich), The Manifestation Maven (Kimberly Schneider), Dafna Michaelson Jenet (activist), Jeremy Nulik (writer), Caren Libby (photographer) and some other remarkable people (all of whom are worthy of study and admiration as individuals).

I have since watched him present to large groups of 200 or more and smaller groups under 50 and even more intimate settings with 5 or six people. He is authentic. As a 25 year veteran of Anheuser-Busch he has every right to claim expertise as a brand specialist. But it is what he has done since leaving AB in 10+ years that is an even better measure of his character. It is that decade in which he has earned the right to call himself a coach and mentor. It is a unique combination of experiences on his life’s journey that makes him more than qualified to help people find their own path to self discovery.

It is apparent that Bill Ellis is hoping for miracles, but Faith alone is not enough. (It takes virtues Hope and Love, too.)
