It’s Time to Design Your Life!

This course follows the mindset of an Architect designing a building. If you were that Architect, where would you begin? What questions need answering first, second, and so on?

I discovered that the process of designing anything, creating anything, is the same. So, we use this analogy of the Architect and apply it to our own lives. The key is that it’s a process designed to be repeated throughout your life. As you change, the course changes with you!

Yet, you’re not just buying a course. You’re buying unlimited email support to ensure that you get the best results. The steps in the course-book are easy to follow, but sometimes we need a fresh pair of eyes or an outside opinion. I’m here to help! Learn more about the support that comes with this, here.

The Five Parts to Life Design

The first question we need to answer when designing ANYTHING is… What’s the purpose? If it’s a building, are we trying to create shelter, aka housing? Or are we trying to create the tallest building? Get it? The same goes for our life, and I’ll walk you through a series of short exercises to help you become aware of your own Purpose.

Once we know the reason for the building we’re designing (or our life) we want to start imagining all we want it to be. All the finer details that we want. For a building, it could be how many windows, color, wood or metal, height, location, smart home, off the grid. For our lives? It’s about our desires in all the areas of our life. From our Relationships to our Health and more.

It’s time to start imagining how it’s all going to come together. The first step along that route is to determine what tools we have at our disposal? And for our life, it’s what interests us? What do we enjoy and love? What do we like? I’m going to walk you through how to do this and leave you with an awesome Bonus exercise to make Part 4 (Careers), really come alive.

Why would I do this? Great question and the reason is simple. I want you to succeed with this! I want you to get all the results you expect and then some more.

You’re trusting me with your purchase here, and I take it to heart. I know that if you put the effort into the exercises, really sit down and focus on them, the results will transform your life. But, I want to be there with you on the journey to make sure no stone goes unturned.


This book, and Derek’s support really jumpstarted my career as an entrepreneur. It helped me really hone in on my passions, and most importantly, my purpose. I had no idea what to make of my purpose or why it’s so important. After we went through that though it was like a light bulb went off in my head. It made so much sense why, and I think it would’ve taken me forever to figure out that it’s worth knowing, let alone figuring out what it is! I’m ready to conquer the World now… in a nice way!

I can’t stress enough to anyone reading this how happy I am that I took the chance to work with Derek (The Roaming Scholar!). I knew the things I loved and was passionate about, but this book, and Derek, helped me put the pieces of the puzzle together. He was just so good at helping me identify the things holding me back, and helping me see solutions with more ease. Now that I finished the book, I feel confident and excited about where I’m heading and where I’m at already!

Derek showed me how to find my direction and put my passion and purpose together to create a business that fulfills me every day!

I was lost, but after working through this book, that all disappeared. I’m happy with my career and I’m living according to my own design! No more anxiety about my future. I know where I’m going and why I’m going there.

Still Not Sure?

What’s Your Concern?

I get it. Dropping extra cash on courses often feels scary. Two things to put your mind at ease.
First, is that I want nothing but five-star testimonials and raving reviews. The way I get that is by helping you succeed and walking away feeling awesome. Hence the unlimited email support. If you use it, I know you’ll be talking about this course to everyone you know!
Second, is that it’s your life! If you’re that concerned about the price tag, it’s easily gained back by skipping that Starbucks coffee for a couple of weeks. A small sacrifice for your future happiness, don’t you think? I could be wrong, though. I do love a good Starbucks coffee ; )

Yes! But, here’s the thing: the days of taking a career test, picking the best career from a list, and sticking with it for decades are over. With this course, the process you’ll learn will enable you to discover the best path or paths for you right now. Even better, is that when life experience changes you, this course and this process are there to find you the next best path.
We’re always evolving, and our work and career should change with us. The one thing that won’t change, though, is what we begin the course with—purpose. That’s why we start there because it will be your guiding force throughout your life. The rest is about discovering, knowing, and choosing the best path right now. This course will help you do that. Another reason for giving you lifetime access!

Two options. First, is I offer one-on-one coaching packages that you can add on to this course. We meet over Zoom, and I use their online white-board to help explain things. I’ll also allow you to record those sessions to re-watch anytime. I’m all about that lifetime access!
Second option: if that’s not a possibility for you, I’ll find another way to help you. Remember, I really, really want you to succeed here and I’ll ensure you do one way or another.
Just one last thing: I doubt you’ll have that kind of trouble! I’ve laid these steps out really well so anyone can walk through it on their own. But, if you’re worried, I got your back!
