Soul/Life Balance: The Practice to Go from Stressed & Overwhelmed to Energized & Fulfilled!

The practice of SOUL/Life Balance puts one’s own mental health as the #1 priority while reframing work as a part of being a human. By implementing SOUL/Life Balance as a way of being, you’ll experience firsthand how to optimize all aspects of life, including your work. You’ll be equipped with tools to enable mindful practices for more energy and fulfillment in your everyday life!
Sam Kabert is a serial entrepreneur turned spiritual seeker. He transitioned from a workaholic to spiritual seeker after building the business of his dreams and being recognized for prestigious accolades like Silicon Valley’s 40 Under 40 in 2019.

Despite his successes, he felt empty within, and after going on an inward journey he discovered the missing piece. He was disconnected from his soul caught chasing Work/Life Balance.

Sam bridges the gap between business and mindful practices to increase fulfillment in everyday professional and executive lives which he calls SOUL/Life Balance.

They now have the structure and support to operate more similarly than different in beautifully designed and consistently branded spaces.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is The CLUB only for Design Studio Managers?

No, The CLUB will be a valuable experience for any homebuilder employee with the title of Design Studio Manager, Director or VP who oversees Design Consultants. Other appropriate titles include Directors or VPs of Sales/Marketing/ Purchasing/Operations, or President.

If your title is Design Consultant or similar, but your responsibilities are that of a Design Studio Manager, please email us upon joining The CLUB with an explanation. We’ll either approve your CLUB membership or refund your membership investment.

CLUB members must be directly employed by a homebuilder.

 

What’s the time frame for this program? Can I see an agenda?

The CLUB runs from September 2024 through April 2025, with 2 in-person events and 8 monthly video conferences.

After registering, you’ll receive agendas listing specific sessions, speakers, dates, and times for your videoconferences and for both in-person events.  Prior to enrolling, if you have specific questions about content or dates and times for The CLUB, email us at information@opt4success.net and we’ll be happy to provide the information you need!

Why should I enroll now when the program doesn’t start until Fall?

The CLUB is for a small, exclusive group of elite Design Studio professionals to come together, form close bonds, collaborate, and grow in an intimate setting. Spots are limited to ensure optimal group size and this program is expected to sell out. Enrolling now is the best way to ensure you don’t miss out!

Additionally, the registration investment will increase on June 15 when Regular Enrollment closes and Final Opportunity Enrollment begins.

Why should I join The CLUB now instead of joining in the future?

We don’t know if we will offer The CLUB again in the future. This is an unparalleled opportunity to give yourself an incredible career advantage and make your best impact in your company this year. The experience we’re offering inside The CLUB is truly one of a kind — don’t miss out!

Will I gain something new from this if I’ve participated in Managing Excellence or other previous Success Strategies programs?

YES, this is a next-level program that provides fresh perspectives, new topics, and opportunities we’ve never offered before. There’s minimal repetition from previous programs you may have done with us.

Unlike previous Success Strategies programs for Design Studio Managers that were mostly taught by Jane, a primary focus of The CLUB is on exposure to top-notch speakers. Jane will still teach throughout the program, but The CLUB offers a new emphasis on building your network through collaboration and connection with some of the nation’s foremost leaders in and outside of the homebuilding industry.

Plus, unlike our recent 100% remote programs, The CLUB includes brand new opportunities to get out of the four walls of your workplace to connect and collaborate with an elite group of Design Studio professionals.

What happens after I join?

After enrolling, you’ll receive a welcome letter with instructions for booking hotels and flights for the in-person events, and other information to orient you as a new member of The CLUB! We’ll also send you a member profile questionnaire so members can get to know each other.

Design Studio Manager or VP,

You deserve the BEST of the homebuilding industry in your corner

I’ve seen how career-defining it is for Design Studio Managers to lean on a network of like-minded colleagues and industry leaders.

Design Studio Managers who’ve participated in our programs in the past still trade information and support each other long after their programs ended.

That’s why I’m beyond excited to personally invite you into my inner circle for the coming year, with 8 months of virtual discussions, dynamic in-person events, and unparalleled opportunities to strengthen your career.

The CLUB is designed to be an exclusive small group and membership is expected to sell out. So if you want to join us, I highly recommend securing your spot as early as possible. I can’t wait to welcome you into The CLUB for Design Studio Managers.

I’m cheering you on,

Jane Meagher
President, Success Strategies
