"What The &^# Am I Doing With My Life?" Workshop With Alex Baisley
Figure out what you’re doing with the next chapter of your life – your thing – and start on Monday.
Thursday, November 30, 2023
9am – 11:00am Pacific
COST: $25 USD (Replay will be sent to those who can’t make it)
Picture this …
It’s a sunny morning, and you wake up feeling more at home in your life, in your own skin, and excited about your day, than you have in a very, very long time.
And you also have that deep satisfying feeling that you’re on track.
You know exactly what you are meant to be doing in this life and world.
If the topic of life purpose, life direction, finding your calling, or put more simply: “figuring out what the sweet holy f**k am I doing with my life” is a big question for you these days, then this might just be the webinar for you!
Hiya friends of Tad and Marketing for Hippies.
My name is Alex Baisley and I’m based in Canada. I’ve got a mentoring biz called the Big Dream Program and for the past nearly 20 years have been sharing my perspective with folks trying to figure out the bloody-hard question: :wtf am I doing with my life?”
I work mostly with self-employed folks who have about a gazillion interests they struggle to choose between, are really talented, ambitious (especially when they know where they’re headed), and really want to make their own unique kind of contribution to the world.
They are driven by a desire for their lives and work to feel meaningful.
And they are ALSO driven by a desire to have a more sane daily life, which sometimes seems at odds with the previous desire.
Want a successful business so you can be in charge of your own time?
Have a friggin’ lot of interests and talents and don’t want to have to choose just ONE to move forward with? (Spoiler alert – you probably don’t have to choose, at least until hearing me out.)
Sometimes want to throw it all out the window and figure out a way to live in a hut by the beach, do yoga, grow vegetables, hang out with your close-ies, and read great books all day?
IF you answered YES to these then you need to be on this call!
A Walk in the Woods Invitation to this Workshop:
A little bit about me:
My first 10-year career was as a commercial diver (which I did not like – froze my butt off while working largely for companies ruining the environment).
Then through an unexpected twist of events I ended up in my second career: a full-time Reiki Master and Teacher (and Seichem, and Golden Dragon, and all manner of mad stuff.) Much better, but …
Trouble is, a few years into doing this work I was unhappy again.
What the hell was wrong with me?
Did I just have trouble being content?
Turns out, no. It all changed one afternoon in my reiki clinic (with not enough clients, but at least a dandy hot coffee) when a story went through my head, and my journal came out.
My entire life changed that day, and the Big Dream Program was born.
Soon after – with the help of the amazing Tad Hargrave – I was road-tripping my way around Canada and the US teaching workshops (to 1200+ people I might add, whereas previously I had trouble getting five people to show up for something) with my family, camping gear, and a lot of swimming holes. My business and life became very different in a very short period of time.
I’ve not felt lost (nor had any trouble with contentment) since. That’s the part that amazes me to this day. I’m so grateful. If I died tomorrow (sure hope not), I had the chance to “find” and “do” my thing.
I have spent the 15+ years since sharing with well over a thousand brave and eclectic clients and workshop-participants around the world, plus anyone who accidentally stands still near me just long enough for me to get started!
What Tad has to Say About Me ...
“For the love of God send them to Alex …”
“I met Alex many years ago and he became one of my dearest friends and colleagues. I’ve hosted his workshops and seen him work absolute magic with people who had felt lost and directionless for years. He’s a hidden gem.
If you know anyone who is trying to figure out ‘what the f*** to do with their life’, who’s really stuck, who’s got a lot of interests and talents, and gifts and genius, but hasn’t found a way to turn that into income, for the love of God send them to Alex.
This is Alex’s definite genius of helping people figure out how to thread that needle which is not easy to do, and impossible when you’re the person IN it, because you just can’t see the forest for the trees.”

In This 2-Hour Workshop, You Will:
- Learn how to avoid the “mono-crop” template of work-design. That’s what the problem was in the first place for me and most of my clients. (Hint – you’re probably an experience designer, a very different business model.)
- Uncover a unique way to blend your interests into your calling instead of the endless cycle of trying to choose a pigeon hole that’s too small for you.
- Craft your Personal HABITAT: a fill-in-the-boxes masterplan to package all the things that make you YOU into your own unique business – your THING in this world. It’s a wholistic approach that aligns with who you truly are.
- Learn a way to get started building it this week.
This Webinar Might Be A Perfect Fit For You IF:
You really want your life and work to be meaningful. BUT ALSO lifestyle-friendly. You’re done with burnouts and rat-races. DONE.
You are very motivated to find “your own thing” – something unique and enjoyable and very “you” to do in this world, and you KNOW it’s there somewhere!
You love the idea of helping others have a better life in some way, making some kind of deep contribution of help, healing, fun, or beauty in your community or world to lift others up and help heal our planet.
You feel life is an adventure. You want to make the MOST of it, but you’re side-lined by not having a plan that seems to click.
You have a LOT of interests and ideas, and potential paths, but GACKKKKK! You just can’t decide which one is your “thing”?! It’s paralyzing trying to choose!
This Webinar Might NOT Be A Good Fit For You If:
You know exactly what you’re doing with your life and business, and are more in need of mechanical support getting there.
You’re overwhelmed with life-stuff and simply don’t have the bandwidth for this kind of high-level design right now.
You don’t like salty language. I curse. I’m from the rural Maritimes of Canada and it’s in my DNA. It’s gonna happen.
PS: Back when I was a commercial diver, and desperate to get out of it, I used to go to a coffee shop every Sunday morning with my journal and whatever self-help book I was reading at the time about “finding my calling.”
Every one of those mornings I learned things, but I could never nail something down that would prevent me from having to pack my dreams in my sack, walk home, and face Monday morning in the cold Atlantic ocean without …
… A PRACTICAL PLAN.
It’s why I do what I do now. My hope is that this workshop will be practical for you, and provide you with something you can roll up your sleeves with, get started on, and implement, right away.
If you sign up for this workshop, you’ll also get:
Alex’s beloved (and kinda famous!) MapMaker Kit. A Road-Less-Travelled, Fill-In-The-Blanks, Mavericks’ Guide to Kick-A** Life & Work Design.
Workbook 1 – the 29 Questions: get all your cards on the table. Like Marie Kondo’s throwing everything on the bed.
Workbook 2 – the Filler-Outer: plug your 29 answers into a project-maker template and see what direction ideas come out the other end!
Testimonials for the MapMaker Kit:
“I’m not a fan of workbooks. Or wasn’t … until I came across Alex Baisley. I’m telling you, a few hours spent on his extremely thought-provoking workbooks will have you understanding yourself and exploring avenues you didn’t know were there to be enjoyed. I honestly don’t know how he does it. But I do know he has a gift for it, and that it’s a gift you shouldn’t ignore. You’ll thank me!” ~ Tim Emerson, National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach.
“I just love how you’ve managed to organize all of these questions in a lovely story-book kind of way.”
Danielle W., client of Alex Baisley
