Personal Segment

The World’s First Personal Evolution Event

Friday Night and Saturday

Who should attend:
Seekers and anyone who has an unrealized dream

Welcome to The Powerful U Experience

Have you ever wondered why some areas of your life work and others don’t?

Are you passionate about personal development but can’t justify spending thousands on it?

When you go online, do you suffer from content overload?

Are you frustrated with all of the contradicting information on social media?

In a world where we have so much information at our fingertips, it’s hard to know which advice fits our needs. How do we find the right guidance to help us on our journey?

Imagine having a customized approach that addresses your needs.

For the first time ever, Mel Robbins, Tom Bilyeu, Lewis Howes and Jay Shetty will be sharing the same stage! With the help of Beau Lotto, leading neuroscientist in the field of perception, we will guide you on your Hero’s Journey. We will tell this story from the perspective of a man and a woman. Working with these teachers’ strengths, we have combined the content into a seamless story creating a unique experience. Starting in your childhood, you will see how your perceptions are formed and how they impact your life today. Most experts agree, your self-esteem is established by the time you’re five years old.

Do you really want your five-year-old self to play such a major role in deciding how your life will unfold?

You will become aware of the subconscious beliefs that create what your mind perceives as reality. We will help you understand what dictates your decision-making process. Then, we will teach you how to get rid of the false and limiting beliefs that keep you trapped in the Matrix. We will show you how to adopt a more empowering mindset. Through the power of vulnerability, you will discover how to feel safe and secure enough to take on the level of fear and uncertainty required to do great things. We will teach you how to break bad habits and how to form new ones. Finally, we will give you the resources necessary to start executing on your dreams!

What makes this event different?

Read More

You do! It is all about your needs. We want every person that attends this event to have a life-changing experience. You might ask, “How will they accomplish this?” We will make it interactive and customized to your needs. It’s a big undertaking, we know. Let us walk you through how it’s going to work.

We are going to start by helping you understand your needs. Not your physical needs, we’re sure you have a clear picture of that. We want to help you realize what you are missing in order to move forward on your journey. This is where the customization comes into the picture. We are all at different points in life. There is no one size fits all solution. If there were, you would’ve already found it.

No more guessing and hoping that this tip or trick will be the one that works for you. You need facts about yourself and we will help you find them.

We do this by helping you answer three questions:
  • Where am I?
  • How did I get here?
  • How am I going to move forward?

This might seem simple, but understanding the answer to these three questions will change everything for you.

Let me explain. It is easy to get caught up in the “work harder, run faster” approach. Isn’t that what you’ve been doing your whole life? Why would you start running faster if you are going in the wrong direction? That’s why it’s so important to ask these three questions. All journeys have to start with a fundamental understanding of where you are. Then, you have to figure out how you came to be here. If you don’t, you are doomed to repeat the same mistakes that landed you here in the first place. Which means you will end up right where you started.

Once you have a clear picture of where you are and how you got there, then, and only then, can you start to move forward towards your vision.

How do we help you do that?

Prior the the event, we will give you a free copy of our personal evaluation test called Growth Sketch. This state of the art assessment will pinpoint exactly where you are now. We test your perceptions about the three fundamental building blocks that are essential for growth. Here’s what we can tell you: You will discover how your perception impacts the four major aspects of life: Relationships, Health, Finances, and Career.

The results of this assessment will be a direct reflection of your current life. This is extremely valuable information because you will learn the areas where you’re stuck, and the steps you need to move forward. The exciting part is, by helping you identify beforehand what areas you need to focus on, you will know what parts of the speaker’s presentation will be most important to you.

We will also make the event interactive through live polling. You will be able to answer live questions from our speakers which will help you connect to the content on a deeper level. Your opinions will become part of the experience. You will see your old beliefs change right before your eyes, and your transformation will become part of the experience unfolding live on stage!  

Now that you have a clear picture of what’s in store for you at the event, let’s explore how the content will help you with your evolution.

At Powerful U, we believe that life is not about finding answers, it’s about asking the right questions. Any great adventure begins with a question. Here is the question that starts our journey, which just happens to be the same question we started this description with:

Have you ever wondered why some areas of your life work and others don’t?

Understanding the answer to this very simple question will change everything.

Whether you realize it or not, each and everyone of you is a success and a failure. It just depends on which part of your life you are talking about. You may have no money, but your relationships are out of this world, or you might have a successful career, but your health is in the toilet. The takeaway is this: We all have some things we are good at in life. It might not be the things you are trying to create in your life right now, but you have experienced success.

Why is this important? Because you already have the blueprint for success inside of you! We just need to show you how to duplicate the success you have in one area and apply it to another. You know the saying: Success breeds success. Sounds easy enough, right?

Well…It can be if you’re asking the right question. So what is the right question?

The obvious question is, “What am I doing differently in the part of my life that is successful?”

That would be the right question if life was about doing, but life is not about doing. It’s about being. What is the difference you ask? Well, first of all doing is a part of being, but only a part. The other aspects of being are thinking, feeling, and believing.

You’re probably saying to yourself, “Great, now there are four things I have focus on!”

Not exactly…

The four aspects of Being which are thinking, feeling, doing, and believing

all work together and are applied to your life through a process called perceiving.

So, the right question is, “How am I perceiving the part of my life, that is successful, differently?”

It all comes back to perception. Which is why our event is based on evolving your perception.

But why? Is perception really that important?

Perception is everything!

Let me explain:

In order to understand Perception you first need to understand how it is we create our lives.

The concept of personal creation is huge right now, and teaching people how it works is a billion dollar industry. You have heard concepts like “The Law of attraction” or you hear things like “you become what you think about” or “thoughts become things” these concepts both over simplify and over complicate the process at the same time.

Then, there are the more functional ideas floating around about creating the life you desire. We hear things like, “You need more creativity, clarity, awareness, mindfulness, and purpose.” or “You need better self esteem, confidence, or mindset.” You may have also been told you don’t have enough “persistence, grit, determination or courage” to achieve your goals. All of these are great and can help you on your journey but, they aren’t the fundamental building blocks of personal creation.

The real answer is much easier to understand and makes more sense then all of the concepts above.

So, what are they you ask?

Well, when you break it down, there are only three elements of personal creation:

  • Recognizing opportunities
  • Making decisions
  • Taking action

Makes sense, right? If you think about it, those are the only things creation could be based on.

If you want to create a better life for yourself, you have to learn how to do these three things better. This means you need to understand how they work.

In order to do that, you need to understand the one thing that dictates every opportunity you see or don’t see, every decision you do or don’t make, and every action you do or don’t take.

And of course that one thing is…

You guessed it, Perception (We did give you a lot of hints).

That makes perception is the primary factor that determines the direction of your life.

And that, my friends, is why Perception is so damn important and why understanding it is everything!

It is why a big part of the Powerful U Experience focuses on teaching you how perception works. Specifically, how it works as it relates to seeing opportunities, making decisions, and taking action. We are also going to show you how to evolve your perception to see your world differently, so you can reach your goals and live your dreams.  

I will admit Evolving Your Perception is no easy task. It takes a lot of hard work, but if you want to grow, this shift has to happen whether it is conscious or unconscious.

At Powerful U, we believe in taking an “eyes wide open” approach to life, and that is what we want to help you do as well. We sincerely hope you will join us on this journey.

Transform Your Life


James & Steph Purpura

James and Steph’s journey of transformation is nothing short of extraordinary.  Before they met 15 years ago, both of their lives had hit rock bottom. They were both financially, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt. Life had beaten them down and shattered their self-esteem. At the lowest point in their lives, they met and were united by a shared vision of creating and becoming more.  They started the only place they could by working on themselves and helping each other grow. They believed in each other but more importantly, they challenged each other every step of the way, and never settled…

Shortly after meeting, Steph wrote James’ first resume and taught him how to send an email.  This began James’ unlikely career in technology. Around this time, they also started a family.  Fast forward fifteen years, after many ups and downs and a lot of hard work, Steph and James recently sold their tech company, one of the world’s largest construction software companies.  They now have five beautiful children and live an extraordinary life. Through this journey of self-creation, they developed a personal philosophy centered around perception.  They believe perception, more than any other factor, will determine how someone’s life will turn out. James and Steph started Powerful U as their way to give back to the world. They believe that through the knowledge they accumulated on their journey they can help others live the life they desire.  Their dream is to bring personal development to the masses by making it affordable and readily available to all seekers. This event is the first step in realizing that dream.  An event of this magnitude would normally cost well over a thousand dollars.  To stay true to their vision, they are selling tickets for much less and offering a scholarship program so all that want to attend, can attend.
Loving ones self fully and completely is the greatest gift that anyone can give to the world.
