I've mentioned a few times wanting to do a live event, but what keeps me from setting a date and doing it is how many different ideas I have on formats and sizes. So, I'm going to just pick a date, see who signs up, and tailor the event to the number of people and type of person that sign up.
The date is March 3rd, 2018 and it will take place in Las Vegas. The event will be 1pm - 9pm that Saturday, and there will be an optional free follow-up the next day, probably from 11am - 2pm or something like that.
The overarching goal of the event, regardless of other factors, is to help you figure out where you want your life to go over the next few years, to work backwards to find leverage points in your life, to figure out the best habits/practices to get that leverage, and then to figure out a specific actionable plan with which to implement those changes.
Every single person who comes in ready to work will leave with concrete action steps.
This will not be a lecture and will not contain canned speeches. I'll have a few exercises, but the whole point is to really customize the event to the people who attend. The bulk of the event will be group discussions where we talk about people's specific situations and apply to them the principles I talk and write about.
To make sure we're on the same page, here's what I need from you:
- A willingness to share your situation, goals, and roadblocks with a group. I've found there's a lot of benefit in working through one person's problems in front of like-minded people. If you aren't willing to share in a comfortable group environment, this probably isn't right for you.
- Absolute discretion and respect for other peoples' privacy. You may not share other people's stories outside of the event without their explicit permission. This will also allow me to share stories and experiences that I may not feel comfortable sharing in public.
- Some idea of where you want to be 3-5 years from now. We will refine this and work on picking the right path, but "I have no idea what I want to do with my life" won't be a good starting point for this particular event.
The event will involve serious work and discussions aimed towards permanently increasing your long term trajectory in life. This is the sort of thing I do during my one-on-one coaching sessions, and I now have absolute confidence that I can deliver on that promise. At the same time, it will also be laid-back and social. I'd like for us to all have the opportunity to get to know each other, partially to give more context for discussions, and also hopefully to foster friendships between participants.
The cost to attend is $1000. I think that this is low and I will almost certainly raise the price for future events that are this interactive, but I want to underprice it a little bit because it's my first one and it probably won't be as polished as future ones. My hope is that people signing up will feel like they get an amazing value, and will roll with the punches as I figure out the format. That said, if you show up and leave unsatisfied, I'll gladly give you a 100% refund.
I may limit attendance to make sure that everyone gets enough individual attention. In that case, priority will be given to existing coaching clients, as they're all the sort of person I'd love to have attend.
If you want to come, please email event at my name dot net with a very short bio (3-5 sentences) and the top 1-2 things you'd like to improve over the next few years. I'll let you know within a week if you've got a spot and how to make a deposit.

My friend Roxanne Modafferi is fighting for the UFC 125lb title tonight! I'll be going to see the fight in person!
Exact 3 months from now. How do you guys manage and schedule a 3 months later event? Kudos to you! I can't even predict what I am going to do the next day.
Hey is this sett thing dead? My blog has a whole load of bugs and no one will fix them!!
I would like to go to the event, but I have to work. Maybe you can video (not the privacy stuff...the general philospohy) it and post in online once it is completed. Thanks and Good Luck.

For most of my life, at least until my late twenties, I was a slacker. I did almost nothing to help around the house, choosing to procrastinate on things assigned to me until someone else just did it themselves because that was easier than goading me into doing it. Even in friendships, I would rely on my good friends to come up with plans or invite me somewhere, and then I'd join. The only reason I got into college was because my best friend at the time, Phil, pushed me into filling out an application. I wouldn't have done it otherwise.
There were exceptions, of course, but in general I was probably a burden. I was a good friend and family member in other ways, but in terms of carrying the weight of those relationships, I wasn't putting in my fair share. It's embarrassing to say that, but it's true.
A couple years back, Todd wasn't as invested in Sett as I was. We had started it as a side project, but it seemed like there was enough potential that it was worth going full time. I wanted to do so, but Todd's priorities were elsewhere, so he worked a lot less than me. If Sett was going to continue, I would have to take full responsibility for it.
Hello, you should probably know a bit about me, before you start reading my blog. I'm a girl, but I think you can tell that. I live in Canada, on a quite little farm. I'm pretty shy in person, if I don't know you well, and I'm awkward too. You'll be able to learn a lot about me, by my daily blog. Sometimes there will be more than one a day, I guess it just depends on how much goes on in a day. I had a blog before this, but it didn't exactly go anywhere, so I started this one. Instead of writing in my Journal, I decided "why not share my thoughts with the world." Even if this blog doesn't go far, at least I'll be out there with my writing. Basically, this is a blog about my life, there might be some of my poems sometimes. Wanna get to know me? Why not subscribe?
