I went through a roller coaster of emotions throughout the presentation (laughter and tears)…Tom is a dynamic and enthusiastic speaker. His delivery encouraged, entertained and prompted those present to create their own personal sense of improvement.

Explore your Life Zones

When your seven Life Zones aren’t in harmony, it can throw everything in your life into a state of unbalance. You know what we're talking about... Being overstressed, exhausted and having that feeling that you just can't keep it together. Been there? Don't worry. You’re not alone! Other people have been there. Heck! We’ve been there too.


Self is a powerful component to living Your Better Life. If we don’t focus on our own self growth or self discovery, how can we possibly find balance? With this life zone, we challenge you to take some time and reflect on what makes you happy. What matters most to you? What are the things you’d like to leave behind as your legacy.


We strongly embrace the celebration of faith at Your Better Life. We are a non-denominational organization that supports all religious affiliations. Too often, religion centers on the concept of right or wrong. We believe that faith encompasses so much more than that. The search for faith is rarely black and white. We open our community to every person seeking to live their best self, regardless of where they are in their faith journey.

Our community and experts are here to help you.


Relationships include every person with whom you form a bond over the course of your life. From understanding how to communicate with others, to building trust and even dealing with unpleasant or negative situations, fostering positive, healthy relationships will build a stronger network for every aspect of living.


Today it’s more difficult than ever to dedicate time to our health and wellness. However, it’s one of the most dangerous life zones to neglect. From eating & exercise habits, to coping with mental health, no discussion surrounding health and wellness is off the table. The support of a community is one of the most effective ways to find change.



From expecting your first child to caring for an elderly parent (and everything in between), navigating the road to family happiness can be bumpy, to say the least. Perhaps you need some pointers in caring for an unruly teen. Or maybe you aren’t sure how to approach an aggressive in-law. We’re here to cover all of the bases when it comes to creating a positive family dynamic.


Whether you’re in the beginning stages of your career, or are eagerly looking toward retirement, your career decisions are critical to Your Better Life. Are you getting the right education for your career path? When’s the right time to ask for a raise? Are you ever too old for a career change? Should I start new business?


Do you have overwhelming credit card or loan debt? Not sure how you should invest your money to help build a secure future? Want to buy a house but don’t know how you’ll ever afford it? Are you nearing retirement age with little to no savings? Don’t worry. You’re not alone. Many of us struggle with financial insecurity, which can impact our health, relationships, and so much more. 

Learning from others is one of the best ways to understand how to deal with your own circumstances
