DEA Overview Simple

The DEA Digital Experts Academy is as you know an online course, so to speak.

It is divided into 4 levels:

  1. DEA Overview  - Mindset Level – SILVER

    It all starts in the mind and I have found that this is learning to love yourself first and foremost!  For this you must face and conquer all your demons, however big or small they may be (for some it may be facing the video camera, others calling….).  Then you can ‘assume’ all risk undertaken for your business venture;

  2. DEA Overview  - Marketing Level – GOLD

    Here marketing gets a new ‘coat of arms’ for you are a new Chevalier brave, bold and brazen remaining in humble service to your prospects/clients.  They flock to you for you can now speak to them, solve their problems they are in gratituditude (is that a word?? no I like to invent my own!!!)

  3. DEA Overview  - Branding Level – PLATINUM

    Here you get to brand yourself, the entrepreneurial you that now shines, through the thick and thin you have made it!  So speak now or forever hold your piece!

  4. DEA Overview  - Partnership Level – BLACK

    This is the summit of the mountain, DEA partners with you. This means that your branding has lead to products you have produced and they are worthy of the ‘Royal’ seal of approval if you like.

This is my interpretation and understanding so bear with me here would you!

 So once you have the mindset you can be let loose onto the marketing scene! This is why to be part of SFM is vital, and at Elite level to maximize your chances, as at SFM you get to use the Business Model, their Marketing System whereby you ‘Earn as you Learn’.

92 yrs old

92 yrsold

The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today. Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.

After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready. As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window. “I love it,” she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.

“Mrs. Jones, you haven’t seen the room …. just wait.”

“That doesn’t have anything to do with it,” she replied. “Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged, it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away, just for this time in my life.”

She went on to explain, “Old age is like a bank account, you withdraw from what you’ve put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing.”

And with a smile, she said: “Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less

Back to Hong Kong 1970-1980′s

I came across the page on Facebook

The people who grew up in Hong Kong where this person came across old photos of his Dad’s and he was posting them with a ‘Where is this?’ caption if he was unsure and I do not know why but it fascinated me!  When I was at school doing my ‘A’ levels, as they were known back then, some of my close friends to this day, came from Hong Kong and somehow this place was surreal for me.  Why? Who knows…

So when I went to Asia years later Hong Kong was definitely on my

list.  We arrived -T and I – to be told that Aparna & Kai had visitors and could not put us up for our stay.  This is great was my initial reaction but still luck was with us and we found a room… It was literally a ladder to the mattress in a mezzanine style and we had to use the back packs as pillows… No windows, no air and as we were younger we managed to snuggle up and sleep with the backpacks in the bed with us! I am claustrophobic so this was an adventure for me to say the least.  Hong Kong 1991 we visited.  What a place! I loved it to bits, the streets, the odors, my heart racing at a zillion miles an hour at the heights, the scaffolding  was made of bamboo and would sway with the wind at the +90th floor!!!!!  Every one was on a mobile phone – never seen for 2 frenchies!  I bought lots of lenses for my camera, T lots of music bits and pieces for the walkman so we could listen to music where ever we were… Speakers, plug adapters….

Kai and Aparna then some how got in touch and could put us up.  So we went from the base line to the top of the top, Kai was Director of something at the Bank of America and he worked with Dad in London and now I think on it I am amazed that we could get in touch with no phones and no internet – goes to show that even then when I was determined to do something I found a way!  Needless to say the high life of Hong Kong was something else! We had a whole 100m² as the guest room on the xth floor (that I do not recall). The energy, sounds, sights, tastes, miles we walked, heart beats missed due to the heigts  are engraved in my mind and soul.  I can well believe that for people who were lucky enough to live there must be ‘liant’ bonding like and this was the energy that came out of this Facebook page and a wave of wanting to help these people get back to Hong Kong came over me… So I am writing to them here to let them know that there is a way they can go back to Hong Kong and live there if they want.

What I talked about the most when I returned to a sad Europe about Hong Kong was that we WALKED  INTO  CHINA.  ;)

Understand How Google Works is a Good Start!

Google is now THE search engine.

I mean we do it ‘automatically’ without a second thought!  It is even become a verb and the reference point of starters for any research :

  • looking for a new job – google it;
  • looking for a quick receipy – google it;
  • looking for a restaurant near by – google it;
  • looking for ….. –  google it!

This infographic is really so good as it is basic, clear and to the point, so whether you are a veteran marketer or a newbie this explains it all…
