A Sister’s Eulogy for Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011

So profound and beautifully human


“One time when Steve had contracted a tenacious pneumonia his doctor forbid everything — even ice. We were in a standard I.C.U. unit. Steve, who generally disliked cutting in line or dropping his own name, confessed that this once, he’d like to be treated a little specially.

I told him:  Steve, this is special treatment.

He leaned over to me, and said: “I want it to be a little more special.”

Yes, we all want to be made to feel ‘ a little more special’. Thank you for asking after my daughter. And since you asked ( you did’nt ) but I still believe in you ~ Not sure if you like Gavin and Stacey Ty, but Smithy driving his car trying to sing a song from ‘Take That’ has me curled up. Him, his car, his Smithy branding, his singing and his audacity is so infectious.

Stay infectious! Stay Real!.

What humour grabs YOU?   Do you re-energise your connections?

Branding ~ What makes you different?

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

I had invited Tanya to Ecademy two years ago and since then she has been nurturing her standing in Wales. Her website introduction says it best:

“Welcome to Tanya’s Design Studio where you will find a highly innovative and contemporary collection of jewellery created and manufactured exclusively by designer Tanya Igic. Working with the finest quality delicate leather in an array of beautiful pastel and bright shades, Tanya amalgamates an unusual layering technique with sterling silver to create the exquisite effect you see throughout the collection”.

On Thursday I met the lovely Tanya along with her beautiful baby daughter Maja to discuss her small exhibition of designer jewellery which she will display on September 30th at this Event. Tanya had returned home to Swansea from their holiday visiting her family in Serbia. Great timing as Wales face Samoa on Sunday hopefully bringing a Smile to the Prior to this she had been busy preparing for two major events, the last one being her first Welsh National Eisteddfod exhibition in August.

What makes Tanya’s jewellery quite different in my view, is Tanya herself. Her beauty, her style, her charm, her brand. A unique, family loving business lady. Business today is all about branding and I feel Tanya has that hallmark. If you would like to add a touch of Sparkle to your day and learn more about her designer pieces, please log onto

Working together for a better tomorrow. What makes you different?
