You're here because you're part of, or soon to become part of, the T&GE family. We want to give you the opportunity to take a look under the hood and get a feel for our values, how these values roll up into our brand, and further how we use them to communicate our message.

We'll also add some perspective, context, and clarity around how we came to rest on these values as well as some high-level guidance. This will help you translate them into the world-class design, digital interactions, user experiences, and on-brand touch-points for our internal team members and clients.

We want you to be confident working on and within our ecosystem, and therefore we invite you to reach out in the event further clarity is required. And most importantly, we value your feedback. So deem this a formal invitation to share any wisdom you believe can help us communicate our value proposition better across any of the mediums.

A short note about grammar on this page:
If you find/spot poor use of grammar and typos as you move thru this doc, we wanted you to know that this has been intentionally left in. This is a working document. Not a stuffy corporate doc that would have everyone sweating bullets if asked to interact with it. Also, this entire doc has, is, and will continue to be, a collaboration between many of the team. But more importantly, it's vital it captures Ray's essence than to polish it to the point of not having any. Emjoy.
We're transitioning...
from a real estate options training company to an educational platform that will host an assortment of on and offline events showcasing educators/teachers/speakers specializing in a holistic approach to health, mindset, wellness, and financial wellbeing.
Here is the rebrand journey.
The outcome!
Timing is everything. And a good brand will birth itself when good and ready. Planetary alignment, one could say. The first brand discovery phone call was held in the third week of July 2017, and the brand process and the finalizing of the brand was completed on November 20th, 2019. This Is It!
Health, mindset, wellness, and financial wellbeing ...know-how!
Health
Mindset
Wellness
Financial wellbeing
Know-how
Used to express friendly feelings toward one's companions before drinking.
Health education, the process of learning to behave in a manner conducive to good health.
Health effect, a change in health resulting from exposure to a source.

A mindset can also be seen as incident of a person's world view or philosophy of life.
In decision theory and general systems theory, a mindset is a set of assumptions, methods, or notations held by one or more people or groups of people.
A mindset may be so firmly established that it creates a powerful incentive within these people or groups to continue to adopt or accept prior behaviors, choices, or tools.
The latter phenomenon is also sometimes described as mental inertia, "groupthink", and it is often difficult to counteract its effects upon analysis and decision making processes.
In cognitive psychology, a mindset represents the cognitive processes activated in response to a given task.
ref
Wellness is a state beyond absence of illness but rather aims to optimize well-being
The notions behind the term share the same roots as the alternative medicine movement, in 19th-century movements in the US and Europe that sought to optimize health and to consider the whole person, like New Thought, Christian Science, and Lebensreform.
The term wellness has also been misused for pseudoscientific health interventions.
ref
Financial wellbeing :Financial wellbeing:Financial wellbeing:
A sense of security and feeling as though you have enough money to meet your needs. It's about being in control of your day-to-day finances and having the financial freedom to make choices that allow you to enjoy life.
ref
(or knowhow or procedural knowledge)
Is a term for practical knowledge on how to accomplish something, as opposed to "know-what" (facts), "know-why" (science), or "know-who" (communication). It is also often referred to as street smarts (sometimes conceived as opposed to book smarts), and a person employing their street smarts as street wise. Know-how is often tacit knowledge, which means that it can be difficult to transfer to another person by means of writing it down or verbalising it. The opposite of tacit knowledge is explicit knowledge.

The brand statement
This is Ray's personal statement, which has formed his entire WHY he does what he does. It's at the core of his being and a part of his DNA. A part that would be imposable to remove or distinguish from the rest of his DNA.
As a kid, I was made to feel less than others. In my most vulnerable and lonely time, I was subjected to a decade of being displayed to the school as the 'stupid' kid. My influencers intentionally set out to steal my confidence and self-belief through years of indoctrination.

One day, a guy called Paul walked into my life and told me that I need to change my beliefs to change my life. So I listened and listened, and then I acted. He picked me up by the feet and shook me to my core and BANG…

I realised that my limited beliefs were just a reflection of the limited beliefs of my influencers. I realised that my life, my reality, and everything in it was a mirror reflection of my beliefs. I "changed my mind," and my life changed accordingly.

Today, I take people by the feet, shake them into realising that they, too, are the product of damaging misbeliefs. I inspire them to let go of the past and embrace the higher essence of themselves. I show them how to access their operating system, the system that determines who they believe they are and that it is them that controls their programming so that they can finally change the 'program' and their lives.

The not to speak!
Our four UN-spoken walkaway keywords - Trust - Different - Authentic - Approachable

The following four words personify the values that resonate most with our clients. They're still significant values to us, but we believe they will be most powerful if spoken by them rather than us.

They are the most complimentary words used to describe any interaction with our brand. We'd be honored and humbled to overhear them use these words while explaining their experience with us to a good friend.

Our job is to create, build, and develop on-brand optimized touchpoints that elicit the expression of these words.

The marketing statement
Our four spoken keywords put to work.
Knowhow - Connection - Community - Path


The marketing statement uses our top four spoken keywords. Both intent and context have been added to develop the most meaningful marketing narrative. You should be able to read through this statement and have a clear understanding of what we do, how we do it, what the clients will feel, and what they'll walk away with in respect to the overarching value proposition.
Unleash your fullest potential in the areas of
health, wellness, and financial wellbeing.
Mini:
We provide the know-how necessary for you to be mindful around health, wellness, and financial wellbeing. You'll experience a very human-like connection through an educational platform that hosts on and offline events showcasing educators/teachers/speakers specializing in a holistic approach to some of the world's most significant challenges we all face. And we know you can't do it alone. We couldn't. And we've made sure you won't have to either. You're part of a community now. It's in our DNA and ... it's how we roll. Our educational products and services offer multiple paths so you'll always feel an innate sense of ownership, empowerment, and pride around how you've educated yourself in the art of making great choices that will unleash your fullest potential around your health, wellness, and financial wellbeing.
Unleash your fullest potential in the areas of
health, wellness, and financial wellbeing.
We partner with creative thought leaders and trained professionals who are experienced in transferring the know-how you'll need to break free of any judgment associated with prior failed attempts obtaining health, wellness, and financial wellbeing.

We believe connection is vital for learning new ways of living life, but only when it's a two-way stream. How we connect to you and how easy for you to re-connect with us is kind of our jam. That's why we're building an omnichannel learning platform that hosts educators, teachers, and speakers specializing in a holistic approach to some of the world's most significant challenges we all face. Whenever you're ready to learn, or where ever you are, we're on a mission to make it as simple as… 'just plug-in.'

Plug-in - On & Offline Live Events: National and international live events, seminars, workshops, and wellness retreats.

Plug-in - One on One Coaching: Paths and customized plans built and personalized for you that feels doable with someone to hold you accountable.

Plug-in - eLearning Courses: Online courses that offer additional paths and support for those paths you're currently active in. And, they're ready when a brush-up or refresher is necessary.

Plug-in - Community and Group Mentoring 24/7: Around the clock availability to those who have walked your path and willing to share their strategy and key learnings.

Community is in our DNA; we know you can't do it alone because we couldn't. And, we've made sure you won't have to either. It's how we roll. So we look forward to seeing you share your home runs (and miss's) with the community.

Your path won't be conventional, but it will be effective. We've flipped the traditional sequence to building sustainable change. Firstly, we make sure you have the necessary emotional mindset to manage what you desire. Secondly, you'll learn the skills and principles associated with maintaining and evolving it. The outcome is an innate sense of ownership, empowerment, and pride around the choices you make and, more meaningfully, how you make them.

Our courses explore health, wellness, and financial wellbeing from both classical and alternative constructs. Upon the introductory context required to embrace the solution is established, we transition into how psychology plays a significant role in your success. We then move on to your biological elements before delving deep into your coolest organ, your brain. We then use neuroscience to help you uncover how your mind ticks and finally landing on how you can influence it to be, do, and have anything you put your mind to. Very cool!

All paths, regardless of being presented in person via a live or virtual environment, are always supported by easy to follow step by steps, video tutorials, check sheets, downloads, and all the necessary supporting materials. And, a real human customer support representative ready when you need one.

You've accepted that, at times, we're a bit of a brainhack and deep, but realize it's what drives us to go that extra mile so that you can. We're 'that friend' who invites you to a party of one that feels like you've come home to a warm familiar place… We've poured your favorite bevi and even lit the fire!
