Designing Your Life Course

Taught by Sue and Steve Sobczak

How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life 

An interactive class that shows you how to build – design – a life you can thrive 

in at any age or stage.

We will show how design thinking can help us create lives that are both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of whom or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are. The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and build your career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise.

Our course is based on the book, Designing Your Life, by Bill Burnet and Dave Evans.

What makes you qualified to teach this?

That’s a really good question.  You could buy the book, read the material on your own and never take this course.  Or, you can join our class and embark on your journey with others who are like you and questioning what their life could look like and how to make it happen.  We have taught this course and found that people get so much more out of walking through it with others and gaining insight and broadening their community.  We are both Associate Certified Coaches through the International Coaching Federation with years of coaching and teaching experience.  In addition to all of that, we are passionate about helping people become the best version of themselves.  It’s our mission.

How much is the course?

The course is $199 per person.
