A loving message to all GREATful Woman® Talks! Speakers —
I apologize that I have gone a bit radio silent. I admit that with the sale of GREATful Woman® and then what happened (well, didn’t happen), I felt a little shame, even though I know I have done everything in integrity. I reach out now because the people I met and interviewed for the GREATful Woman® Talks! were the most amazing, beautiful people I have ever known and I want to foster those relationships.
A little history — As you may know, Tina Brinkley Potts (http://www.tinabrinkleypotts.com/) bought the GREATful brands (including GREATful Woman®) in February 2018 (with a signed legal agreement signed that I am happy to share). Tina requested immediate access to all GREATful artifacts to create a package for her market. Since I had known her for years, I made the tragic mistake of trusting her. I lovingly organized and provided her with every artifact and access point, such as the GREATful Woman® Talks! (audio, transcripts, website) & the latest GREATful Woman® Talks! book (Volume 2), the CRM email/contact list (over 3000), the GREATful Woman® trademark, and all GREATful websites, branding materials, social media access, etc.
…Sadly, Tina Brinkley Potts never paid even $1 of the GREATful Agreement… She has SOLE POSSESSION of all artifacts (except the domains). She has never communicated that she had changed her mind (not that that matters at this point). After an ignored demand letter in November, I’m now (reluctantly) gathering the legal team to simply have her meet her requirements.
We even communicated the leadership transition to the GREATful community in April 2018. After we sent that email, I deleted the GREATful list from my aWeber because that is the right thing to do.
It breaks my heart because I loved the GREATful brand and wanted to see it soar.
It’s sad to see something so beautiful and created with such love be abused.
I do warn you to be cautious if she reaches out to your. Check with me to confirm that she has met her commitments.
You know I adore and respect you. I am forever grateful to know you and for you to have recorded a GREATful Woman Talks! with me. I will never let Tina’s lack of integrity tarnish that!
Hugs — Stephanie
P.S. At the bottom of this page, you can see the 17 minute video where Tina explains where she plans to take the GREATful Brand in the end of May, 2018 (3 months after purchase).
Here is what all of the GREATful pages redirect to
until Tina meets her commitments.
As you may has read in the email in the beginning of April 2018, in February 2018, Tina Brinkley Potts bought the GREATful brand and created the company GREATful Experiences LLC. You may have seen her social media posts. Tina/GREATful Experiences LLC are in sole ownership and possession of the GREATful brand, including (but not limited to) the CRM email list, trademark, website, all social media accounts, and the second book that I had completed the draft of and that she will be publishing soon (hopefully).
Following remuneration (i.e. Tina pays for the GREATful brand, per the Feb 2018 agreement and May 2018 amendment — to date, she has not paid $1 towards the agreement), she can take the GREATful brand to the stars!
***HOT*** Here is a Facebook video of Tina talking about the GREATful brand and direction from May 28, 2018: https://www.facebook.com/tinabrinkleypotts/videos/10216344735238857/. NOTE: If anything has happened to that FB post, there is a recording of the video at the BOTTOM OF THE PAGE (or on YouTube at https://youtu.be/7i-MhetwyIs).
Please email Tina@GREATfulWoman.com (or even better, text her or message/Inbox her on Facebook as she prefers that) with any questions about the GREATful Brand. Her team is excited to serve.
As always, I send you light and love and HUGS!!! — Stephanie Bavaro
P.S. Here is the letter that went out to everyone April 3, 2018 (Click here to see the Facebook post):
Hello, my dear GREATful friends. Many of you have reached out to me or may have noticed a new energy and forward movement in GREATful Woman®, after a somewhat quiet period. I wanted to take a moment to share with you what has evolved within me, Stephanie Bavaro, and the EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT with the GREATful brand.
First. please know that I love love love the GREATful community and YOU. It has been a joy to provide a haven for women and men to find confidence, joy and success — on your terms!
We started with a BANG of ˜3000 people who opt’d into our first event, GREATful Woman® Talks! TeleSummit in September 2013 (wow!, almost five years ago). We dove immediately into our #1 International Best Seller, GREATful Woman® Talks! Volume 1 – Giving From Your Overflow Starts with Self-Care!, 80+ GREATful Woman® Talks! (www.GWTalks.com), bling t-shirts and water bottles with GREATful Gear (www.GREATfulGear.com), and the award winning TeleSummit Success™ Do-It-Yourself Kit (www.TeleSummtSuccess.com).
In 2014, the universe felt I was ready to handle a series of challenging events impacting my family, trust, love, home in Italy, health, and finances. After a bit of down time, I started to rebuild my life, always with the foundation of the GREATful Woman core values — confidence, joy and success — on my terms! I realized that my professional joy is in making things better, smarter, faster. I don’t get as much joy in actually creating or leading the thing, as I do making things more effective.
What became clear is that the GREATful brand (GREATful Life, GREATful Woman®, GREATful Love, GREATful Health, GREATful Fortune, GREATful Days, etc.) needed a leader at the helm who could take the brand where it was meant to go. I knew I had been a good surrogate mom for a magnificent GREATful child, but someone else needed to grow this brand up to the international powerhouse it was meant to be.
So, after a quiet (and unadvertised) two-year search, the universe delivered the woman who will take the entire GREATful Experience to the next level and beyond.
GREATful Community — Meet the brilliant and beautiful Tina Brinkley Potts, the new owner and CEO of GREATful Experiences, LLC, for all GREATful brands, including GREATful Woman®!!! It’s Tina’s plan to expand the GREATful vision and turn the brand into a digital and traditional media, apparel and information products company. She has personally developed with a team of developers their own network of tv and radio shows digitally across all artificial intelligence devices and the GREATful brand will become part of that. Tina has already secured a deal to get the first book GREATful Woman Talks Volume 1: Giving From Your Overflow Begins With Self-Care into physical book stores across the United States. She is also launching Volume 2 in April 2018 AND a deal creating a GREATful branded product for a female business association with over 5000 members.
I’ll remain on as the host of the GREATful Woman® channel, as your GREATful StoryTeacher. Plus, I will support Tina behind the scenes, doing what a truly love, being a Virtual Executive to her epic GREATful vision.
For those who want to know what else is going on in my life… I’m in a wonderful place. My precious furbaby, Regi, and I love living in Scottsdale, Arizona (well, for 10 months of the year). I’ve created a life of financial (and time) freedom. My health is strong and getting better each day. Also, I recently started sharing my life with a loving (and sexy) man. Professionally, I still consult (when and for whom I want), including the TeleSummit Success™ Do-It-Yourself Kit. As a “Virtual Executive”, I support successful entrepreneurs and small businesses who are ready to invest in making their businesses smarter, better, faster, and more predictable. And lastly, about a month ago, I had a vision of something I currently call “Living SWELL”, and you will hear more about that soon.
As always, I send you light, love and hugs! With that said, I respectfully and wholeheartedly hand the GREATful reigns over to Tina Brinkley Potts.
