The Art Of Art: Behind The Scenes of An Empire
Level 9000 - Guardian Spotlight
Let me introduce you to Becky.
Becky is many things. Many know her as Tony’s first wife from the fourteen years she spent behind the scenes building an empire. In fact, when I first met Becky, that’s all I knew about her, that she was Tony Robbins first wife.
..and then she came to her first Guardian Event in Phoenix, Arizona and everyone in the room realized she she is so much more. Becky is an artist, a film maker, an empower, an all-around powerhouse of a woman - and one of the kindest humans and best friends anyone could ask for.
Becky’s house in San Diego is filled with art.
Each piece has a story, a lesson, and a piece of history. The Pale Blue Dot1, for example:
I painted the twigs shaped into lungs for the beauty of it and hung the mending hearts later when I was sad about the loss of Murphy, my dog because the lungs are the repository of the emotion of grief. In Chinese medicine pears are suggested for relief of lung congestion. So ode to pears!
The word RESPECT was at first placed as a reminder to hold our Mother Earth in our hearts so we can heal her. Then Aretha Franklin died and I recalled her song of that name. Then I remembered Respect Yourself by the Staple Singers and wrote in the musical notation from the beginning of that song. And then we endured the global pandemic which has made this painting beloved for so many reasons.
And the best story I’ve saved for now: when the Voyager I spacecraft was due to be slingshot into deep space after its mission and loaded with the ‘golden record’ Carl Sagan pleaded with NASA to turn the craft around one last time to take a photo of Earth from 3.7 billion miles away. The photo is grainy and only by the arrow pointing to the tiniest dot can you see it in this barely visible shaft of light from the distant Sun. It was named the Pale Blue Dot and it became the title of Sagan’s book. It’s a magnificent read and underscores our responsibility to deal kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.
Behind The Scenes of a Coming Out Party
Behind the scenes, Becky has been working on a project she believe will change the world - especially for artists, creative and entrepreneurs.
…and she shared it publicly for the first time ever at the most recent Guardian Event.
What it’s really like to build an empire from scratch (hint, it’s not easy)
How she developed the skill and mastered the art of art
What i’s like to be in a cage with a Tiger on stage
Lessons about struggles, transformation and inspiration
The Art of Art Docu-series; a powerful project and collaboration
If you’re a fan of fine art, give fellow Guardian Becky a follow.
Enjoy The Interview,
PS. We have invites to a private gathering at Becky’s home in San Diego in December. Guardians interested in being in the room will have an opportunity to claim a few of those spots (they are limited).
