January 25 – 27, 2018
Manhattan Beach, California

I plan on making this conference something I do every year…

“I am no stranger to leadership conferences, including ones that focus on women in particular. I think I spent as much time being evaluated or trained or walking on coals at both Nike and Textile Exchange as I did actually working. I couldn’t tell from your online event materials exactly what the experience at Design Your Destiny Live™ would be like. I can say that by the end of the conference, I was so filled ─ me, my body, and my heart and mind and soul ─ that I could look at my life and what I actually wanted to do with it from a much higher and deeper perspective.

In that space, I wasn’t trying to be anything for anyone else or doing what I thought I should be doing. I was just profoundly and uniquely ME, with capitals and everything. In that space of being-ness, I could think (without panicking or having the Squirrel of Perfection come a-callin’) about what I could offer the world, the kind of legacy I could create, and the people I could help. I plan on making this conference something I do every year.”

~ Heidi McCloskey, Principal, Simple

Upside Thinking: Sometimes your thoughts, actions, and beliefs hold you back from thriving in business and in life. What got you here? Well, it won’t get you there. At Design Your Destiny Live™, you experience mindset shifts that help you finally become the change maker you are called to be.

Permission: Sometimes who you are and what you do may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of it all. But the world needs you and your brilliance – just as you are. At Design Your Destiny Live™, your uniqueness is celebrated, and you are given a safe space to learn and grow.

3 Things: Sometimes you get in your own way when it comes to accomplishing your goals. In the end, success is created by taking three things a mile, instead of 100 things just an inch. At Design Your Destiny Live™, you discover how to simplify – and reach your dreams faster than you ever imagined.

Who Is This For?

The Design Your Destiny Live™ event is for trailblazers and difference makers who want to give hope to the world.

Mission-Driven
Entrepreneurs

Service-Based
Entrepreneurs

Managers, Supervisors,
& Consultants

All are welcome!

Women and men, entrepreneur or expert or consultant, seasoned or just starting out. If you are ready to…

  • Turn possibilities into realities;
  • Be both teacher and student;
  • Look forward to a brighter, more profitable future, full of fresh, new ideas;
  • Get out of your head and have fun; and
  • Accept responsibility for and take charge of your own destiny

…then Design Your Destiny Live™ is where you want to be!

Previous attendees include real estate agents, doctors, branding professionals, online marketing strategists, portfolio managers, videographers, IT professionals, photographers, graphic designers, social media experts, sales executives, manufacturing engineers, jewelry consultants, recording artists, authors, speakers, trainers, coaches, and more.

This event is especially for you if any of these sound familiar…

I feel “crazy busy,” but I don’t seem to have the right plan in place to get the results I desire and still have time for what’s important to me.

I sometimes feel invisible because I still haven’t figured out how to differentiate myself from everyone else in my field.

I want to create profitable partnerships that allow me to double my efforts and my revenue – without adding extra hours to my already full day.

I am often “stuck” and am ready to get rid of the stress and anxiousness that comes from trying to figure out “what’s next” or “what’s best” for my company.

I feel maxed out and that business often overtakes my life – and desperately want to get my life back.

Knows how to draw out the best…

“I’ve learned to forgive my in-laws, and now we’re talking and texting. I don’t believe I would have been able to forgive them had it not been for the forgiveness exercise that you introduced us to at Design Your Destiny Live™. Who would have thought that an apology from someone I connected with a day prior could make a difference in my life! This feeling of resentment that I had for almost 19 years was gone in a few minutes.

Another thing I took away from the event was to gradually separate myself from negative people, including my family. At work, my goal to help develop staff and set my priorities is in full bloom. As for my personal growth, I’ve been trying to give myself more personal time because, when we did the time exercise, I slept for seven hours, worked 14 hours, spent two hours communicating with loved ones, and took one hour for myself on a daily basis. I want to focus on my well-being in all aspects: emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being in my life. You bring so much love and positivity in people’s lives. I keep on telling people you’re such an amazing person (one in billion, if you ask me) who knows how to draw out the best in others and how accepting you are. My life has been better with you in it.”

Provided valuable tools to discover and appreciate my authentic self…

When Lisa Marie and I first crossed paths during a professional conference, I was in the process of making a major decision regarding the trajectory of my career.

After attending the leadership workshop that Lisa Marie facilitated, I knew that she had a role in helping me to uncover the next step so I gifted myself a ticket to Design Your Destiny Live 2017 for my birthday.

During Design Your Destiny Live™, Lisa Marie provided valuable tools to discover and appreciate my authentic self.

After she shared her 7 Pillars of Leadership, I was excited to design a destiny that will allow me to share my brilliance with the world, being seen and heard for what makes me unique.

I’m actively implementing the strategies I learned and can’t wait for Design Your Destiny Live™ 2018.

Thank you, Lisa Marie for sharing your brilliance with the world. Those of us who’ve been blessed enough to share space with you can see ourselves a little bit better now.
