How to Clarify Your Life’s Direction,
Get Focused and On The Right Track,
Without Having to Hit the Restart Button

Are you aware this thing, called a Vade Mecum, can get you on track and keep you on track - the right track - to give you focus and direction for the rest of your life?  

What is a Vade Mecum?

The root word of Vade Mecum is Latin for "go with me." 

A Vade Mecum is "a book for ready reference; a manual; something regularly carried about by a person; a handbook or guide that is kept constantly at hand for consultation"

When you have clarify about your core values, vision, and your direction you are in a better position to:

  • have confidence to discern options and make the right decisions
  • have courage to take bold and aligned action to make a difference - at home, work, or the world
  • prioritize and focus - feel good about what gets done and what does not get done
  • have certainty that you are on the right track with your dreams, desires, and mission
  • set clear boundaries so you can spend your time on things that move you on your path
  • stay focused and make progress because you know what you are doing is the right thing
  • have a sense of security and no more second guessing or chasing the next best thing
  • be able to communicate both by understanding yourself better 
  • exercise the #1 leadership and life skill: self-awareness
  • get up inspired because you are on purpose and with purpose

By the end of the one month course you'll have a handy little book to help you navigate life so you never need to get lost or lose your way again. It's a life-long guide by your side to remind you of your identity, your mission, and your path of fulfillment and meaningful contribution. 

Better Than the Same-Old Discovery Work Creating a Vade Mecum Gives You a Lifetime Guide To Navigate Life 

My name is Danette Layne and I'll be walking you through the process, step by step, to build your own Vade Mecum. 

A Vade Mecum is a handy little guidebook all about you that helps you get on the right track with your mission and goals as well as stay on the right track.

The process of creating your personalized Vade Mecum is as important and life changing as the finished guidebook. 

Throughout the journey you'll get clarity, confidence, and conviction by completing fun exercises, activities, and processes that will reveal truths, touchstones, guideposts, and create a ​​​​compelling future vision.  

You'll upload information into the Studio Creator and we'll provide you with a digital version of your final Vade Mecum (see digital example on this page) and I'll show you how to create a printed version of your Vade Mecum so you can have a little handbook (see photo of printe example on this page) to take with you as you make plans, create goals, make decisions, and take action to fill your mission and purpose.  

As your Vade Mecum contains a collection of deep insight, wisdom, and clarity about all things "you" - your values, your desired results, your mission, your purpose, what speaks to your soul, stirs your heart, and more - it's the place to come back to when you find yourself drifting, distracted, disillusioned, or disappointed.

It's Time To Step Into Your Mission & Purpose

I'd love to help you create your personal Vade Mecum so you can get the clarity, confidence, and conviction about your mission, purpose, and dreams.

There's so much distraction and noise in our everyday life I consider it very courageous and conscious to take the time to create a little guide book that "goes with you" to get you on the RIGHT track, keep you on the RIGHT track, and if you get sidetrack bring you back home to you, your path, your mission, and your purpose. 

You matter. You're so worth it.
