What if we all lived our most inspired lives? Our most meaningful lives? What if every day we challenged ourselves to live our dreams, to bring into being the life of greatest meaning to ourselves and those around us?


SDWM seeks to empower you to do just that. Live a life abundantly with purpose.


Through our five-step collaborative Life Design Planning process, we help transform one's current state of mind into one of greater possibilities, for a personally crafted future.

EVOKE is an acronym for this lifestyle design process that leads to our life of greatest meaning. Each of its letters stands for a word, and each of the words describes a phase of inquiry or action or both. Here we offer a brief description of each:

E for Exploration: The getting-to-know-yourself phase of planning with open-ended questions and wide-open exploration.

V for Vision: The inspirational phase where your goals are clarified, your "Torch" is lit, and you find yourself on fire to accomplish your life's purposes.


O for Obstacles: The phase where you take on all the challenges and obstacles to your dream and resolve them methodically but with energy and vitality, one by one.

K for Knowledge: Where you organize and define the “resources” you will invest to lay the foundation of your plan that, step by step, will accomplish your dreams. That includes the management of your money and a financial plan that is will show you how that money might play out for you.

E for Execution: Where you take action on each of the steps outlined in your plan until they are all accomplished, and you are living your plan.
