Unconventional Life is a sought-after live experience for entrepreneurs, influencers, professional athletes, creatives and thought leaders from all over the world.

There’s a reason we were rated the #1 event for entrepreneurs by Inc. Magazine— our unique methodology creates a cellular shift that elevates the way you show up in every domain of your life.

It all started when founder Jules Schroeder awoke with the words “Bali” on her tongue. In less than two months, she sold out her first event, and Unconventional Life community was born. Jules is a master event facilitator, real estate investor, serial entrepreneur, and host of the Unconventional Life Show podcast. Our events have made waves all over the world including: Nicaragua, Croatia, Bali, Italy, South Africa, and Fiji.  

here’s how unconventional life
is different from every other event out there

We Curate on the Mutual F*** YEAH

We consistently attract industry leaders who trust us to bring together groups of fellow, high-caliber trailblazers. We personally speak to each attendee to ensure that each participant is a match for the container, and only extend invites when there is a 10/10 mutual alignment. Every attendee arrives ready to catapult their success in every life area: relationships, health, business/money, and connection to passion and purpose.

We Value Energetic Integrity

We believe that event facilitation is an art that requires intuition, execution, and masterful energetic holding of the container.  We meticulously craft every detail—including the land, the food, the guest list, and the facilitation team.  That’s why we’re known for creating the space for rapid results and quantum breakthroughs.

We Believe Event Facilitation Is An Art Form

Our genius is getting strangers to cut through the small talk and develop meaningful connections in short periods of time. As soon as you arrive, you’ll receive a connection card with 3 names of people we believe hold a key to your success. We’ll personalize your experience so you meet people who will move the needle for you in your life and business.

We Prioritize Local Communities

At every venue we hold events – from Bali, Nicaragua, Italy, Croatia, Fiji, to South Africa – we incorporate local culture into the experience. We don’t stay at chain hotels and support local artisans in the fair trade manufacturing of our event swag.

VOUCHED BY

INFLUENCERS

GARY GOLDSTEIN

Author, speaker, consultant and Hollywood film producer

Unconventional life is being bold enough to lay down the stories that don’t serve you, not worrying about other people’s expectations or judgments, being kind and caring toward yourself. So you can be kind and caring toward others. Trust that you know what’s best for you. And the difference between what belongs to you and what doesn’t is self love. Because the absence of that diminishes and keeps so much humanity in check. Know your truth and live life on your own terms. And invest heavily, like really heavily in your friends and your relationships in the work that feels deeply aligned and significant in your health and well-being.

ALISON ARMSTRONG

Best-selling author, sought after speaker, and a master thought leader, founder of PAX Programs.

An unconventional life would be a life that doesn’t have the word “because I am this way, because of what happened to me, I was born this way because of a religion would be right” instead of “what I’ve invented myself, I’ve created myself, I have chosen to be this person, I’ve chosen this life.” And it might look conventional to somebody else. But if you chose every part of it, which is actually the definition of exquisite, carefully chosen, it’s the definition mix. You choose every part of your life and it will be exquisite. And that is unconventional. Most people’s lives are a mishmash.

TREVOR HALL

Singer-songwriter and guitarist

Unconventional life is kind of like the forbidden, or a pressure of what’s right and what’s wrong and pressure of how we are supposed to live our lives. And that pressure is created by people in power or media or Instagram, Facebook, etc. So I think, the unconventional life is the life of I guess — freedom, like it’s forbidden. I don’t think that those words are quite honest and fair to say that it’s permitted and stuff like this. It really represents to me a life of uniqueness and a life of a centricity, a life of freedom, growth, and self sovereignty.

JOEL BROWN

The founder of #1 motivation website Addicted2Success.com

Living an unconventional life really means being unreasonable, breaking the rules, because you know, the rules are shithouse. And that for us to move forward as a human race and to innovate and to create new things, we have to shatter old paradigms. I’m huge on this. I like, I live and breathe this, like my life has absolutely changed. And I’ve just seen so many people that break the rules that are now just moving mountains. So living an unconventional life is so damn necessary for each and every individual.
