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 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.”
What the nearly 10K people who participated are saying...

    “The content is excellent — great practical advice for developing clarity of purpose and action steps for achieving real change. As valuable as I believe it will be for me, I am even more excited to share the learnings with my teenage kids and the young adults I work with as a career coach. It’s truly a crash course in some of life’s greatest lessons!”
    -Bonnie M.

    "I just finished the sessions and I'm feeling inspired, awed, encouraged and focused. Thanks for making this possible!"
    - Kelsey B.

    "The things that really stood out from the entire Summit were: The importance of building relationships and being a connector; surrounding yourself with people who support your goals; and being persistent and practicing generosity."
