Chief Marketing Officer GKIC
Vision Day was one of the most transformational things I have ever done, not only for my business but for my life. After Vision Day, I had such a clear plan and focus for where I was going and most importantly, the action steps I needed to take.
Dr. Chris Tomshack
CEO HealthSource Chiropractic
Vision Day was monumentally transformative. It has been an amazing growth experience, which has allowed me and my key executives to take our company into a stage that we otherwise wouldn’t have entered.
Rob’s genius is in truly dissecting your business and coaching you to real actionable items that lead to growth. He’s a wizard …who can adroitly and quickly determine what it is that you need personally and professionally … Vision Day has been a very wise investment for me.

Impact First Leaders
I went to Vision Day and worked with Debbie to get clear about my purpose, my mission and my vision. It was absolutely priceless. Since then, I’ve written two books, built a national leadership firm, and started a non-profit to support the work of filmmakers focused on social good.
Don’t miss out on this tremendous experience! Vision Day is a day dedicated solely to you…a day free from encumbrances like your cell phone and email. It’s a time for you to really get away and focus on yourself and your future. Whether you’re doing a personal vision or a business vision, it’s an absolutely transformational experience.
You will have a simple-to-follow formula that you take back with you after Vision Day. It’s very easy to implement and before you know it, you start seeing the results! Finally, those results come that you’ve been wanting and that you’ve been expecting for so long.
Completely amazing! Vision Day brought me so much clarity. I have a step-by-step blueprint for what I’m going to do with my personal and business life for the next 12 months. I feel free and lighter with so much excitement and hope!
If you’re considering Vision Day, you have nothing to lose except frustration, confusion and disillusion, and everything to gain in terms of clarity, focus and real chutzpah that what you have is something of tremendous value and that it’s time to bring it out into the world.
Founder and President
Vision Day helped me gain clarity about where I wanted to go. A definiteness of purpose that was really helpful to what I wanted to achieve.
Linestream Technology, Inc.
I feel like I have the balance and the calm that I need. I’ve been able to be present in navigating changes on the business end and the personal side … a direct result of some of the work that I have done and continue to do with Rob.
Rob sees your strengths and weaknesses and he helps you put together a plan that means you can’t fail.
Author, and Co-owner
After Vision Day I had a really, really clear vision for how our company should run in a way that was aligned with our goals and the kind of company that we wanted to be in the world.
I barely recognize the person that I was before Vision Day. Instead of drifting along in life, I feel like now I have something that I am aiming towards, something that I’m going towards.
After graduating from college and taking an 8-month trip to Uganda to work with refugee children … with the help of Debbie and Rob I was able to develop a road map for my future.

We wanted to do a Vision Day so we could learn how to really maximize the impact of working together. Being a couple comes first, and we didn’t want our working together to impact that and Vision Day really helped us with that.
“Amazed at how a few hours can be so transformational.”
“Vision Day gave me the realization that I can create the perfect life. In my personal life, my marriage is enriched. Wendy and I have reached a new intimacy that I carry throughout the day. In my business life, I am able to see the big picture so the daily ups and downs stay secondary to keeping my eye on the ball in achieving my goals.
If you have unanswered questions in your personal and business life and want to discover answers by looking inside yourself instead of asking for advice. Vision Day will bring it on. Self-discovery with guidance is much more powerful and lasting than just coaching!”
“Rob and Debbie are experts at bringing out your vision.”
“My husband and I were at a crossroads on which way we wanted our lives to go. We needed help figuring out how to move forward as a team. I saw the Vision Day website, went on pure faith, and it was all beyond anything that I could have imagined.
Rob and Debbie were amazing at how they were able to pull things out of us in such a gentle and easy manner. Most valuable insight: I discovered that what I thought my husband wanted and was thinking was not what he wanted and was thinking.
Now I feel so much happier and more complete. I am slowly growing my business at a speed I can handle, which makes the process enjoyable, not stressful. My kids and my husband are much happier, too. In fact, I loved our couples Vision Day so much, and it did so much for us that I did a personal Vision Day as well!”
“A day totally geared to me… and totally worth it.”
“Before my Vision Day, I had some concern that it would be a “cookie cutter” thing, not really focused on my particular situation. After spending 8,234 hours filling out forms and doing personality assessments – and then seeing that Rob had actually read through them prior to our meeting – I felt at ease.
What changed most for me afterwards was being able to focus more on my core goals and values instead of being so easily distracted by the next “shiny object.” Vision Day meant getting a warm, friendly, compassionate yet tough, no-shite second set of eyes looking at my life and helping me to get on track. It’s like your own personal Tony Robbins event, all about you, without having to walk over burning coals.”
“After doing a mini-Vision Day with Debbie during a Women on Fire trip to Paris, I decided to do a full Vision Day. I was nervous about it, but beginning with breakfast, Rob quickly put me at ease and I was completely open to the experience. Throughout the day, there was an energy or power that gave me the sense that things in my life were changing even if I didn’t yet know how.
Some of the work we did surprised me by helping me release pain that I had been holding onto. Most valuable was that I learned I am a storyteller. It defines how I relate to others. I realized that life isn’t real to me until I can tell a story about it. So not only am I exploring new opportunities for storytelling, I have a clearer picture of what I want from my life and am working to get it.”
Michelle Whittaker, Chocalatier
“Reaching for a higher purpose.”
“Not having to have a plan for the entire rest of my life, just for the next year was definitely a fresh approach that simultaneously challenged me and relaxed me. Vision Day was more emotionally powerful than I anticipated, and time moved much faster than I thought it would.
I had a pretty big Aha! Moment during the day related to pleasing my parents, which gave me a sense of newfound freedom. I also realized I had lost passion for some of my programs and services because they didn’t match up to what I really wanted to do. As a result, I have been refining my product offers to match my values/vision and play to my strengths.
Let me add that it’s rare to get even a few moments of someone’s full attention. Yet I felt Rob gave 100% to me before, during and after Vision Day. To feel connected to someone for an entire day is unusual. And to have them help you figure out how to achieve your purpose and personal/professional desires? Priceless.”
“There’s nothing like Vision Day if you’re willing to embrace change and growth.”
“Vision Day is a powerful tool for resetting your compass. I signed up to reach a sense of purpose and meaning after having felt somewhat adrift. I learned that it is possible (and important) to create a living and breathing vision that is truly attainable.
I appreciated the kindness and generosity with which Rob and Debbie welcomed me into their home and made the day so special. My Vision Day was a remarkable growth experience and even a turning point. I would heartily endorse it for others who need focus and vision for the future”
Christine Fairchild, Oxford, United Kingdom
“Vision Day boosted both my business income and time with family.”
“I wondered whether the cost of Vision Day would be worth the effort and time. That was answered within the first few hours, with some conversation and mental exercises that were definitely out of the box but provided helpful ways to slow down, deal with stress and stay focused on what is truly important.
Overall, the program helped me define my goals professionally and personally. The day created a path that allowed me to successfully grow my business 40% in the last year and provided me with time management skills so I could be with my family as well.”
“My favorite saying is, “Leap and the net will appear.” Vision Day gave me the courage to actually live that motto and not just say it. It became clear to me that I need to relocate as the next step in my life journey. Even better, I now have a plan to get there.
Rob is a gifted guide who will help you clarify the next step for your soul to take. Everyone deserves to give this gift to themselves!”
“Vision Day worked for me on both emotional and strategic levels.”
“Due to recent losses in my life, I felt I needed someone to wade through my “stuff” and pull out of me what was buried under the grief. Rob helped me lessen the emotional impact of my grief so I was able to begin looking at my unique message, talents, and gifts and start to create a new structure for my business.
I am now more open to changing my business image, message and structure more frequently instead of sticking with one concept and design forever. I realized that it’s good to keep reinventing yourself as time and situations change me.
I had heard Rob and Debbie were amazing and the process was transformational. Very true! Vision Day is a chance to find out many more things about yourself and what you are capable of than you even thought were possible.”
Vision Day is a personal strategic planning program that helps you create a plan for your life and work so you can live the fulfilled life that you want and do the work that is most rewarding for you. It is offered as a personalized individual retreat; a retreat for partners, couples, and groups; and as a corporate program for teams.
Vision Days are conducted at our beautiful, inspiring locations In Naples, Florida and on Martha’s Vineyard (pictured here).
Ready to stop chasing a life you don’t want?
Vision Daybrings clarity to at least four areas of personal uncertainty:
I am struggling to identify my life purpose, my perfect career, or the life that will be most fulfilling to me. Where do I begin?
I know my life purpose or my desired career, but now I need to create a plan to live in the most fulfilling way possible. How do I get past the everyday busyness to both create and carry out such a plan?
I am in the middle of a major life transition, or I have just gone through one and I am struggling, or a life transition is pending. What should I do to remain safe and keep my family safe? How can I make the most of this transition? How do I get past the struggle, bad feelings, and fear?
I’ve lost my mojo. Everything seems like a struggle, and sometimes I feel like I am stuck in a dead end. How do I get my mojo back?
