for attending live

Here is what you can expect

from this magical event:


Transformation can be lonely and it can be messy. It can be painful and there can be fear. But through it all it is forward motion. It is a permanent shift to a better place and is worth it. Your transformation is your calling card and is a key piece of the puzzle when we grow our businesses smarter.


You've embraced your calling to shine your light and to share your message with the world. Being the best version of you- optimal you-supports your being the light in real life, in real business, and in the real world..


How are we defining success? As we go through the ups and downs of the lives we live, how are we using our examples, the tough times and the easy times as guide posts to help others who feel alone when they are going through similar difficulties. When we link arms with each other how can we all grow even in challenging times?


We all have a purpose and when we make that personal shift to living our optimal lives THEN, we can shift the culture and change the world. When you are at your best, your message becomes an integral part of raising the vibration of the planet. Increasing your impact means you light up your people, they light their people and there is a widespread, global shift, exponentially making the world a better place.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for being a part of this amazing group. Everyone I have met here has been so warm and welcoming. The energy, the support, and the positivity this group puts out into the universe is worth it's weight in gold. So so so grateful!

hi there! i'm dr. Davia shepherd

master connector + Collab queen

to heart-centered entrepreneurs like you

I remember walking in and the room going silent; every eye turning on me. I felt so out of place, I knew no one, and I was just about to pull myself up by my bootstraps and push through the discomfort, the way I always do... and then I did not have to because then I met her.

I had spent over 14 years working in Pharma in several different roles when, story for another day, I had a crisis of conscience. I left Pharma and the allopathic model that was everything I had learned and held dear, and went back to school to learn about HOLISTIC Patient Care. Excited to dive into my new career, I was soon rudely awakened by the reality of what was happening around us.

There is always going to be something. For the last few years, we faced a pandemic and the different effects of that on our businesses, but back then, for me it was the housing crisis. During this time in our private practice it was truly a time of uncertainty. Patients were loosing their jobs, health insurances and in some really sad cases folx were even losing their homes. Our busy practice seemed to grind to a halt, and as the newest doctor in the practice, to say filling my schedule was a challenge, was the decade's understatement.

So I was advised, as I'm sure so many of you have been advised in the past at some time: Get out there and start networking. And so I did. My first networking event that I ever attended in life was nerve racking. Even for me who was accustomed to standing on stages in front of hundreds of people. But this was different. I remember pushing the door open and watching every eye in the place turn towards me. I knew absolutely no one, I'd never been to a networking event before and I was about to do my usual: Push through, make the best of it, smile through it... You know what I'm talking about, we have all done it at one time or another. Fortunately, on this occasion, I didn't have to.

A wonderful older woman who I later learned was an elder care attorney, came over to me, linked arms with me, introduced herself and then proceeded to introduce me to every single person that she knew at the networking event, and she knew just about everyone! She immediately started to think of ways that she could support me, other folx she could introduce me to, people she thought I might get along with even if they might not be driving business to my door. She was the most compassionate networker that I have ever met to date. She was also my first teacher about how I want to feel and how I want everyone to feel when they are out networking, whether it is online or in person: I want them to feel Supported, Welcome and At Ease AND I want them to get the resources they need to grow their businesses and personal development, since that's why we all left our homes and came out to network in the first place!!! :)

I've invited over 20 leaders to share experiences, wisdom, and transformation for you, your business and your life. Get ready to SHED THE OVERWHELM AND BURNOUT; HOP OFF THE HAMSTER WHEEL OF YOUR LIFE! Live your purpose AND live your best life. Be the best version of you and see the changes in skyrocketing your business and dramatically increasing your impact... and income!

Both days of the summit will feature a lineup of stellar FACILITATORS who will lead DISCUSSIONS and share their top strategies and tools for you to step into your power, focus on your selflove and selfcare and truly live the life you have the potential for! LIVE YOUR OPTIMAL LIFE!

you don't want to miss this epic event!

why you won't want to miss this:


Learn from the professionals who've been there, done that, and got the t-shirt. Save yourself loads of time by learning from those who've walked in your footsteps ahead of you, rather than trying to reinvent the wheel. Afterall, our experts have achieved what you're aiming to accomplish, why not learn from them!


No more crawling the interwebs, endless rabbit holes, or piece-meal trainings to achieve the beautiful life you dream of. This summit has it all! Get you questions answered and share your insights here.

YOUR audience needs you, your message, and your expertise

You have a calling to serve but it's tough to make a difference if you aren't living the best version of you. Your audience awaits you and is ready and eager to hear your message. Discover living your optimal life and be the difference you want to see in the world.

Summit starts on day one which will be both in person and virtual! Lori Raggio, Leadership Coach, will be our host on the virtual side ensuring a seamless integration with our in person audience.

We will start with inspiration. Our intention for the morning session is to provide workshops that have a practical foundation that you can apply immediately to transform your life.

After lunch on day one, we dive into some personal development sessions, many with a fun twist and all live and interactive, focused on transformation and integration.

Join in as we discuss the building blocks of unbreakable confidence and love. We will discuss why and how to be unapologetic in our convictions and then we will wrap up with our key takeaways.

...And that's only day one!

BUT WAIT... THERE'S MORE! :) A whole bonus day more...

Day two gives us an opportunity to see some of our key takeaways from day one in action. We focus on foundations for the first half of the day. We will workshop how to tap into your magic to create unbreakable abundance. We will learn about success scripting; how to live truly authentic and how to be the version of you of your dreams.

In the afternoon we will share about taking care of YOU and your health. You will have an opportunity to workshop your key aspects of any purpose driven life. You will have a chance to connect with some outstanding and inspirational stories and then we will wrap up the day with a workshop focused on Resilience and Alignment.

This is not your granddad's planning workshop. To wrap up we invite you to take planning to the quantum level. Come with your big personal development and selfcare goal that you want to achieve over the next 6 months and let's get out of our own way to make it a reality. Day highlights include:

  • Fully interactive sessions focused on selfcare and self love!

  • How you can build prosperity without burnout!

  • Self discovery focus!

  • How to be in ALIGNMENT!

I attended the event on collaboration because I am stepping outside of my comfort zone. Life is … all about the collective. And by giving, I am also receiving. I would describe LPL as Energetic, Empowering and Enlightening. As a result, I scheduled Zoom meetings with members, and I have set myself free to receive again. Thanks a million!

-Dee DiFatta

Through this group I've not only grown my business but I've connected with such amazing and inspiring ladies. I consider many of these ladies to be my friends. When I think of LPL: inspiring, friendships, empowering and growth are what immediately come to mind, though I'm not sure any of these words really do justice to how amazing this group is.
