Like You Mean It!
for those who might die someday
So what's the deal with this online course?
You’re dying of a sexually transmitted disease… Life.
No secrets there… you’re a member of the terminal illness club with me and all the others. Since you’re living on borrowed time, how do you want the time you have left to actually BE?
You live in a world obsessed with living longer.
You’re going to live twice as long as they did 100 years ago. Yay, progress! But are you commensurately maxing out your experience of actually being alive? You’ll live longer, but are you also living wider and deeper?
More scoop about
Your wider + deeper life.
A lack of vitality can lead to feeling
meaningfully bored… a lack of meaning
can lead to feeling vitally empty… and a lack
of both vitality and meaning pretty much
always leads you to the dead zone (gasp).
Practicing Memento Mori reinvigorates your life.
Imagine waking up to your life with urgency, priority and meaning? Reflecting on the fact that you have an expiry date has so much less to do with the morbid and creepy parts about death and so much more to do with the profound opportunity to celebrate and focus on your aliveness and well-being.

Learn step-by-step how to grow into the version of your life that you’ve secretly been fantasizing about: the one jam-packed with vitality and meaning.

liking loving of your life. Unimaginably invigorating work.
A Date with Death

We’ll reprioritize your hopes and dreams (in an inspiring, un-macabre way) and start shifting you into impactful action. Living the life you’ve imagined is entirely possible when you stop taking it for granted.
Fears, Fables + Self-Judgment
How much does fear hold you back? Are the stories you tell yourself empowering or limiting, defined by scarcity or abundance? Learn how to identify the voice of the Grim Reaper in your head, along with his nine most common styles of self-sabotaging judgement…. and re-write a narrative that supports the life you’re after.
Living Wider with Vitality
Learn the Top Six Things that Can Snuff the Life Out of You in order to blast through boredom, rumple up your routines, and start living with a fresh approach.

Living Deeper with Meaning
We go deep into the ways in which meaning, purpose, and engagement can enrich your life and deliver the replenishing gift of fulfillment. Cultivating meaning isn’t as elusive as it sounds, friends, so expect meaningful reflections and activities in this module that will help you live a deeper life that matters from your first download click.
Regrets: Those Little Assholes

Your Inner Life

This program is perfect for you if:
You want to commit more to your life

You feel a little nervous about this
Because you are a normal human being, and what is new and different can feel a little daunting
You are a little more excited than nervous about this
The voice that says “live” is even just a wee bit louder than the one that says “wait”
You're all about learning + growing + self-actualization
I feel you! If you’re not green and growing, you’re ripe and rotting, right?
You're tempted by the idea of an adventure
This is the most respectable way to go on a life journey, without having to pack or get more vaccines
You don't want to die with 'what could have been' on your mind
Something about this conversation is nudging you… out of the land of regret and into the land of living
I really credit this course with clearing the cobwebs from the view of my life, and uncovering a layer of meaning and purpose that was wholly missing from my thinking patterns. Realizing there is a deadline to achieve my dreams is incredibly powerful. This is the reminder I needed that fulfillment rests squarely in my hands. It’s good to have a mental re-organization of sorts. I now feel more like the CEO of my life instead of an on-looker.CJ, Program Participant
I was blown away by this program. I’m all about personal growth and thought I had been there, done that with other courses, but this program stands out. It’s the right balance of being educational and entertaining, it’s thorough and organized, and it’s motivating. I think of one aspect or another of the program every single day (not an exaggeration) and have recommended it to friends. I’m living my life differently because of this experience.LESLIE, Program Participant
This was the best time I have spent with myself! I have taken online programs before but they haven’t lived up to this. I’m so into self development and this took me up so many levels. Jodi was fun and made the different modules exciting to take. I am getting this for my friends for their birthdays!MANNY, Program Participant
I didn’t know what to expect from these classes and am so glad my friend encouraged me to take them. We all know life is too short but this course puts it in a perspective that’s motivating instead of scary. I spend too much time at work and now have specific ideas about how to fill up my life with things that will make me happy and ways to add purpose. I really recommend this course.JAVIER, Program Participant
FAQs for the Curious Types
HOW LONG IS THE PROGRAM, AND HOW MUCH TIME WILL IT TAKE ME TO GO THROUGH IT?
I like your organized approach, friend.
There are 12 modules, and they are designed to be taken at your own pace.
I recommend you progress through about one module per week, although you can slow it down if you need to. Zero judgement; the modules will be there waiting for you when you are ready.
Most participants spend 3 – 5 hours per week on the program (between watching the videos, completing the Guidebook exercises, reflecting, and living it up in general). I have met some “get ‘er done” folks who spend just two hours per module, and some folks who really take their time and go deeper.
You might find that some modules require more or less time than others. For example, the Inner Life module involves a gratitude exercise that you might zip through (or not!), while the Physical Life module involves activity challenges that might take more time (like a few hours per week of moving/ stretching/ pampering your body). (Does anyone else hate the word pampering?)
The bottom line is that you’ll never fall behind, and there is no “right” amount of time to complete the program. Living a life you love isn’t a linear process, right?
You’ll always have access to the course, too (as long as we’re both still alive) — so you can re-take the modules as often as you’d like!
I'VE DONE 1:1 COACHING WITH YOU BEFORE, SO IS THIS PROGRAM RIGHT FOR ME?
This program is definitely for you. You might recognize some of the terminology from when we coached together, but 93% of the content, exercises, calisthenics, and reflections are new.
(There will not be calisthenics.)
WHAT IF I HAVE A BUSY TIME COMING UP AT WORK SOON. SHOULD I WAIT TO ENROLL?
You know what I’m going to say, right?
Why? Because life will always get in the way; it’s what it’s designed to do. I suggest that you take the plunge and work at your own pace. Show yourself that you’ve made a commitment and chip away at the content week by week, month by month. It will always be there for you.
WILL THERE BE GRADES AND QUIZZES?
Oh dear God, no. I am not a horrible person.
(Everyone gets an A+.)
WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS ALONG THE WAY AS I'M COMPLETING THE PROGRAM?
That would make you really normal.
Members of this online program have dedicated support for any random tech or conceptual questions.
If you find yourself wanting deeper, personalized support (like, “how exactly do I tell my boss I’m feeling undervalued?”), then we can consider 1:1 coaching.
HOW DOES THE 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE WORK?
I am driven to make you happy (in life, and in the course).
If after completing the first four modules of the program, you are not finding the program to be the right fit for you, send me your completed Guidebook pages and a note that requests to cancel. We’ll then have a brief conversation about what didn’t float your boat, and I’ll process your refund.
I do ask that you complete the four modules within a two-month timeframe of registering for the program, so you officially give it the old college try before throwing in the towel (love to mix metaphors).
I want you to succeed at this, and I’ll also still love you if you want to break up. We’ll do it amicably.
WHAT IF I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PROGRAM?
By all means, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be SO happy to answer your question(s).
