ARETELife Online Course

Proven Framework to Achieve Excellence in All Things.

In life and in business, we tend to consider excellence a destination. We strive for an unattainable level of perfection which can leave us feeling defeated, our full potential unfulfilled.

Put together, ARETELife is a program developed to identify your full potential and change your habits to create a way of living that aligns with the pursuit of excellence;

A life well-lived, A Potential Realized and A Purpose Fulfilled.

Happy Clients

Some testimonials from satisfied clients

Derek brings HIGH energy to the room! He reminded me “WHY” I do what it is that I do! He is inspiring and made me really go deep and think! He helped me re-align my thoughts and activities. We all seem to get so wrapped up in the day to day of what it is we actually “do” …and this helped me get back to center. I highly recommend this class for anyone and at any stage of your business!”

– Roseann D.

Kudos to Derek Schenck…his presentation on Wellness & Mindset was absolutely fantastic. My agents were engaged and loved Derek’s material and delivery. When you see tears, you know there is an impact.

I wanted to write and express our gratitude for your scheduling Derek’s talk yesterday. As lifelong professionals, to be motivated so immensely is nothing short of miraculous on Derek’s part and worthy of vulnerable appreciation.

Derek Schenck shines on a stage!  His passion and purpose-driven lifestyle are evident in every mannerism.  Derek finds a compassionate way to deliver content that is relevant to every level of production.  Oh, and he even sprinkles in a decent portion of humor. Simply put, if Derek is speaking, I’m attending!

I’ve obtained spurts of inspiration and motivation from countless seminars and instructors in the last 17 years. Derek’s presentation stirred up something more in me. His words and my dream resonated in my head until I finally did something about it!
