I'm Your Host, Darrah Brustein.
I've spent the last decade crafting and integrating my life and work intentionally, not choosing one over the other. I’ve come to learn that my hypothesis was true: you can create a life and a career you love...at the same time...without losing yourself in the process, or succumbing to the fable that you must burn out and sleep when you’re dead.

In the Life By Design, Not By Default Virtual Summit, you will get to learn directly from dozens of my personal mentors and peers who have helped me intentionally design my life.

They will share their methods and strategies on everything from the deep inner work to help you choose the life you want, to building a career that creates the financial freedom you need to choose how you spend your time, to developing a powerful network to support you and your endeavors.

These are the shortcuts to my years of testing. My hope is that my mentors can teach and inspire you through this summit to also live a “life by design, not by default.”

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Life By Design, Not By Default Virtual Summit?
A 3 day, entirely online, 45+ speaker summit designed to teach you how to live a fuller, intentionally designed life and career. Each speaker was hand-picked by me (Darrah, your host and summit founder) to help you shortcut my years of testing to finally unlock how to live the life you truly desire, and in turn, better serve the world.
Who should attend the virtual summit?
This is for you if any of the following ring true. You are:

- Tired of chasing other people’s versions of success
- Spinning your wheels and feeling stuck
- Burning out
- Stressed about your bank account balance
- Feeling alone
- Delaying all of your dreams for later, but have no idea when later will actually come
- Worried that your current network isn't helping you become who you really want to be
- Certain that life should feel more full and aligned with your desires
- Unsure what step to take next
Do I have to travel to the Life By Design, Not By Default Virtual Summit?
No! This event is entirely online, so you can watch or listen from wherever (wearing whatever)! All you need to do is register (at no cost), a wifi connection, and a computer.
When can I watch the Virtual Summit sessions?
The virtual summit will air September 12–14, 2018 from 10 am EST to 5 pm EST. Like an in-person conference, there will be a speaker schedule and you can follow along and watch as each session goes live. Each speaker’s video will be live for the remainder of the day when (s)he spoke, so if you miss it by an hour, for example, you can go back and watch it that same day. Each day’s videos will expire same day at midnight.
What if I miss a session or want to watch them later?
Each speaker’s session will be available to view until midnight the day it airs. So, no stress if you miss it at the exact moment it goes live. Tune in before midnight to catch up on all the ones you missed. If you want to watch any of the sessions after they expire, we’ve created the Lifetime Access Pass where you can purchase all of the sessions (45+ speakers, 20+ hours of content) and own them forever.
What if I can’t attend the whole virtual summit?
No stress! Pop in and out as your schedule allows and catch the sessions that most catch your eye. If you want to watch any of the sessions after they expire, we’ve created the Lifetime Access Pass where you can purchase all of the sessions (45+ speakers, 20+ hours of content) and own them forever.
What is a Lifetime Access Pass?
We know that everyone has a lot on their plates and that attending for the entirety of the 3 days might be a challenge. And, we know that there is so much valuable content in every one of the sessions. The Lifetime Access Pass allows you to purchase access to all of the sessions for a lifetime. You can then use it to go back to, like a Masters degree in lifestyle design, at your own pace, whenever you need it.
How much does the summit cost?
During the live event September 12–14, 2018 the summit is absolutely free! So sign up now and share it with your friends.
