Spectacular Location and Accommodations

The importance of you having an incredible experience at Design Your Destiny Live™ does not just encompass the event itself. We want your whole experience to be just as fabulous!

We are incredibly selective with our event locations. The hotel and restaurant staff at Ayres Hotel Manhattan Beach/Hawthorne has served our participants well over the last several years.

We do recommend you stay at the hotel to be able to use the extra time in the evenings to connect with other participants. It also allows you to get ample rest during the 3 days.

Here are some of the details you will want to make note of…

Thursday: 9:00am – 6:00pm (registration opens at 8:15am)

A Safe and Confidential Space for Transformation

One of Lisa Marie Platske’s highest virtues is safety!

During the event you will be working on several aspects of your business. However, some of the exercises and activities within Design Your Destiny Live™ can bring out some emotions, internal awareness and sensitive subjects discussed. Know that we are very serious about keeping you feeling cared for, loved and safe, as well as, your intimate or vulnerable moments confidential. We ask that you do the same for the other participants.

Now, this does not prevent you from sharing what you get from the event and inviting others to join you next year!

Also, you may be photographed or captured in videos during the course of the three days (only if you sign our release form in-person). Rest assured, we won’t be capturing intimate or vulnerable moments — only footage that captures the event’s energy and excitement.

Love For Diversity

Our Upside Team’s highest intention on making you feel important, valuable and accepted for who you uniquely are.

We love that our event attracts participants, team members and speakers from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds, cultures and beliefs.

The room is filled with BIG love and appreciation for everyone!
