THE 2018 BEST LIFE SUMMIT

You're invited to transform your life!

  • Do you work really hard, but feel like you're not achieving what matters most to you in life?

  • Do you desire to live your best life, but don't always have the tools, knowledge or accountability to start?

  • When you're truly honest with yourself, do you realize that fear might be holding you back from your dreams?

  • Do you desire to have more influence so that you can take your relationships, your finances, your health, or anything else that's important to you to the next level?

  • Are you willing to put in the work, but you don't have clarity on the direction your life should go?

  • Do you desire to be around people who want to thrive in life and serve others along the way? People who want to impact the world for good?

  • Do you make awesome goals or have exciting dreams, but have yet to see them come to fruition?

  • Do you want to do more in life, but you sometimes just feel too tired?

  • Do you want to be confident and resilient so that you can change the world?

There's a movement starting - a movement of people who desire to live their best lives and help others do the same. And these people are gathering together to learn from and encourage each other - and you're invited. 

The 2018 Best Life Summit is featuring world-changers from right here in the Triangle and from across the country. As a part of the Best Life Movement, these powerhouse individuals will pack motivation, their transformation stories, and practical action steps for best-life living into short, life-changing messages. Get ready for a day jam-packed with high-energy activities, impactful talks and practical strategies for thriving in all areas of life and work.

After we learn together, we will dine together. This event will not be short of interaction, new information, prizes, and delicious food and refreshing drinks. 

WE THINK YOU SHOULD BE THERE! Get ready to launch your very best life.

Want to advertise to dozens and dozens of attendees who are excited about thriving in life? Become an event sponsor! 

We are offering three types of sponsorships: 

  1. Sponsor Levels: In exchange for their gift, sponsors see their company name featured ten different ways throughout event promotion and day-of festivities! Choose the Gold, Silver or Bronze option. The prominence and frequency of sponsored companies’ logo and name increases as the sponsorship level increases. Sponsors also receive free event tickets as an added bonus.

  2. Sponsor Levels Plus: In exchange for their gift, sponsors choose an aspect of the event they wish to have named after their company. For example, sponsor the drink station, and people will grab drinks from the "Insert your company's name here" Drink Station (i.e., The Jim Home Services Drink Station) throughout the event. This opportunity also includes all of the benefits associated with the sponsored item’s respective sponsor levels. Sponsor at the highest plus level, and your company gets to feature and sell its products or services in an interactive activity during the event; it will also receive free VIP tickets. This sponsorship comes with multiple benefits and free event tickets!

  3. Event Co-Sponsor: This option is open to one company that wants to join Best Life Global as the co-sponsor of the event. Best Life Global will put in the work to plan and execute the event, but the co-sponsor is featured just as prominently as Best Life Global on promotional materials and at the event. Co-Sponsors also receive free VIP tickets.
