The world's leading authorities will teach you how to intentionally design the life and career you desire... and deserve.
Find clarity in your purpose. Define your next steps with ease. And start living your dreams on your own terms with the Life By Design Virtual Summit!
I'm your host, Darrah Brustein. 

10 years ago, if you told me I'd be running 3 successful businesses while traveling 50% of the time and hanging out with world-class experts, I wouldn't have believed you.

I was overworked, stressed about my future, and had no idea how to feel more fulfilled.

After working through many fears and getting laid off 3 times in a row, I finally took the steps to start designing my life, on my terms, which was the best decision I ever made (although it wasn't easy).

I created this summit so you can learn directly from dozens of my personal mentors and peers who helped me on the path to finding more freedom, joy, and passion than ever before!
If you're ready to stop settling and ask more of life, then this summit is for you. Let's get you started!
"I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed this. It's like binging on a powerhouse of well-executed, but more interactive, and therefore relatable, TED talks. As a result, I have 2 offers to work for 2 dream companies, and I never had the courage to make those moves before."
-Natasha D.
Through the Summit's 45 speakers and 20+ hours of life-changing content, you'll go from:
  • ​​Feeling stuck and lackluster to purposeful and fulfilled
  • ​Financial insecurity to abundance
  • ​Lack of meaningful relationships to powerful connections 
  • ​Surviving and feeling stressed to thriving  
  • ​Confined to feeling free
  • And so much more!
All of the speakers in the Life By Design, Not By Default Virtual Summit are hand-picked by me. These are my personal mentors and peers, and I have learned something unique from each of them. Their methods, strategies, and ways of looking at the world have inspired my personal growth. My hope is that they can teach and inspire you through this Summit to also live a 'life by design, not by default'.”
