BE GREAT GLOBAL VISION: 1 Billion Purpose-Seekers Walking Boldly in Their Greatness and Transforming the Face of Our World!
BE GREAT GLOBAL
Be Great Global (BGG) is an online training platform helping Purpose-Seekers answer the CALL and LOVE the work you do.
I envision a world where 1 billion morally conscious, ethical Purpose-Seekers are walking boldly in their Greatness and transforming the face of our world. I believe that when you connect to the reason for your existence on earth, it not only changes your life, but it completely transforms what we all see and experience in the world. It’s truly a game-changer, and it matters – it really matters!
I can’t stress it enough, the world (we) need what’s inside of you!
Therefore, I invite you to stop dreaming about it and come along on this journey of fulfilling the CALL on your life. You are at the starting line because you are reading this and I can help you get moving. Don’t put it off, get started today.
Come On, Let’s Do This...
MEET THE FOUNDER
HEY THERE, I AM ANITA “AC” CLINTON
I speak, train, consult and write about all aspects of purpose. I exist to help you connect to your purpose and use your gifts/talents to positively impact the world. It is my desire to see the masses walking boldly in their Greatness and transforming the face of our world. Through my podcasts, books, training programs, services and speaking engagements, I help people like you start the journey to living an extraordinary life. Can I tell you, I LOVE WHAT I DO!!!
While at the University of Illinois (Champaign-Urbana), I had high hopes of becoming a professional basketball player. That was until a traumatic knee injury crushed my dreams. At that time in my life, my entire identity was wrapped inside the sport that I loved and excelled at. And when basketball was no longer an option for me – I was lost. I didn’t know who I was outside of basketball, and as a result, I decided my life was no longer worth living. I proceeded to swallow a cocktail of pills, said a small apologetic prayer to God, and laid down with the plan not to wake up again.
But our God had another plan for my life…not only did He save me, but He led me on this 20-year journey to get to this AMAZING place I find myself grounded on today. Now, don’t get me wrong, the “20-year” part was all on me…it took that long for me to personally grow and develop to a level where I wouldn’t sabotage God’s blessing. During that extended journey, I learned so much valuable information (and I’m still learning) that I now share with others.
SO WHAT MAKES ME CREDIBLE…
- I have over 20-years of creative design, brand development, marketing, editorial and business development experience
- I have been a part of a number of different business ventures in various fields, including real estate development, video production, sports and entertainment management, new media production, to name a few
- I have launched, designed and managed two specialty magazines: wakeUPgirl Magazine (CLICK HERE>> to view a copy) and Invest with Passion Magazine
- I currently project management firm, where I help visionaries bring their dreams, vision and ideas to manifestation
- In my business, I have developed business and marketing plans, websites, logos, marketing materials, and managed major projects – positioning my clients for success and next-level growth
- I have successfully worked with authors, speakers, writers, pastors, non-profit organizations, entrepreneurs, artists, small business owners, coaches, consultants, real estate investors, industry experts/gurus, and executives…
- I have been in church all my life and I have the ability to balance ministry and business. So whether you are called to the ministry or marketplace, I have you covered
MY IDEA OF FUN…
When I’m not working with Purpose-Seekers, speaking, writing books or creating training programs, I can be found:
- At the gun range…I own two firearms and I would love, love, love to pursue competition shooting at some point in the future
- Watching my favorite tv shows: Shark Tank and The Profit
- Exhaling…I do so much and when I get a free moment to exhale and relax, I jump right on it
Ok, I admit, I probably need to get out and live a little more – I promise to work on that!
MY TOP TWO ACCOMPLISHMENTS SO FAR…
MY FIRST BOOK
MY FIRST TEDX TALK
I had the privilege of presenting my first TEDx talk, entitled “Ignite Your Zone of Greatness” in April 2021. The talk is all about purpose (like for real, for real, what else would it be about, right). In the midst of COVID, it was an exhilarating experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. This the first of many, there are definitely more to come…so stay tuned!
HOW DID WE GET HERE?
Well, how we got here is a funny story. Well, it’s funny now, but it surely wasn’t funny when it was happening.
At the end of each year, since 2007, I have set goals for the incoming year. However, 2014 was a little different. I sat down to set my 2015 goals, and I got nothing. Typically during this time, I get with God and we flow – but not this time. I was like, God, what are we doing in 2015? STILL, NOTHING!!!
Therefore, I went into 2015 with no goals and so I opted to just work on my book – “Destiny Starter: How to Discover What You are CALLed to Do and Do It!.”
That was until around February. I was sitting in church and Pastor Melva Henderson of World Outreach Center was preparing to deliver the message. However, before she began, she paused and called a couple from audience to the altar. She began to speak into their lives and as she was prophesying to them, I was sitting in my seat with my hands stretched toward them, praying in the spirit.
As I’m praying, I clearly hear God say, “it’s time for you to start your ministry!” I paused and was like – WHAT? I immediately go back to praying in the spirit, and I hear it again – “it’s time for you to start your ministry!” My response this time was, “ok, let’s talk about this after church.”
I get out church and that particular Sunday, I was driving to Chicago. In route, I begin to plead my case with God. I did not and have NEVER wanted to be in Ministry. I have been in church since I can remember and I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior at a very young age. My spiritual foundation is solid, but being in Ministry was not a part of my plans. My passion is entrepreneurship. I have been in some form of entrepreneurship for the last 20 years and I LOVE IT!!!
Needless to say, tears were streaming down my face. I did not agree with God, and I was very vocal with Him about my disagreement. I called a couple of friends to share the message I had received and they each said the exact same thing, in the exact same vernacular – “Anita, it’s not what you think!”
This argument with God, yeah it was an argument, went on for another 2-3 months. I simply was not in agreement – Ministry was not how I saw my life going…PERIOD!
JUST TRUST ME…
One day as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, I saw the image to the right. After looking at this image, the waterworks began to flow…I was so clear that this was a message for me from GOD.
I was that little girl tightly holding on to what I thought was my destiny – not knowing that God had something much bigger and better in store for me. In that moment, I stopped and said “YES”. And God began to upload BGG…and here’s the AMAZING part – not only do I get to apply all of my experiences in business, but I get to be a blessing to others.
I LOVE ALL OF IT!!! And as I look back over all the tears and all the time I wasted…I’m clear that at the end of the day, God always knows best.
