HAL ELROD is on a mission to Elevate the Consciousness of Humanity, One Morning at a Time. He is a grateful husband, father, survivor of a near-fatal car accident and recent conqueror of near-fatal cancer.
Best known as the author of the international bestselling book, The Miracle Morning, and creator of The Miracle Morning Community.
In the summer of 2014, after one of his keynote presentations, a question was posed to Hal that inspired an exciting new possibility, “Have you ever thought about putting on a live event so you could work with people for longer than 90 minutes?”
Six months later the 1st annual Best Year Ever Blueprint [Live Experience] took place in San Diego! And to take it to ensure that every person who attended would maximize the impact of the event long after the event, Hal invited world renowned experiential trainer (who happens to be one of his closest friends), Jon Berghoff to help facilitate the first event.
Nearly four years later, Hal and Jon agree that it truly feels like a family, as returning BYEB attendees come back to San Diego for the 4th annual Best Year Ever Blueprint.
JON BERGHOFF is a world renown experiential trainer and co-founder of Flourishing Leadership Institute (FLI). Only two things intrigue Jon Berghoff more than the art of asking a beautiful question. The first: possibilities. Possibilities for how questions might cause our human system to come alive, be at our best, play to our strengths, deepen our sense of purpose or even — dare we say — save the world. The second: science. The data-driven, scientifically informed craft of designing questions in a way that makes what is possible become probable.
Early entrepreneurial ventures served as a “way out” for Jon, diagnosed with ADHD and rejected from every college he applied to. Eventually, his insatiable curiosity propelled him to lead the meteoric sale growth for Vitamix Corporation, from $40 million to $175 million in just four years.
Today, Jon and his team at Flourishing Leadership Institute are guided by one question: What causes the human system to come alive faster, more effectively, and more naturally than ever before? The answers might surprise you.

Have you ever attended a personal development event and left with “information overload” feeling more overwhelmed than when you arrived? Then, you go home with pages and pages of notes, and you’re left to figure out how and when to implement everything you’ve learned.
The Best Year Ever [Blueprint] is very different. Co-hosted by Hal Elrod, author of The Miracle Morning, and experiential trainer, Jon Berghoff, the main focus of BYEB isn’t so much on “learning” tons of new information as it is on what you “experiencing” a better version of yourself, real-time, while taking action and immediately implementing what you learn.
In other words, the BYEB won’t just teach you how to change your life, you’ll actually starting taking steps to change your life while you’re at the event and have the support and guidance of Hal, Jon, and 300+ like-minded high achievers.
Hal Elrod and Jon Berghoff will guide you through a revolutionary process (based on the latest cutting edge ‘experiential learning science’) that will enable you to immediately:
- Gain extraordinary levels of clarity as to what’s actually possible for you THIS YEAR (based on your potential, NOT your past).
- Then, we’ll help you to identify and overcome the self-imposed limitations that are holding you back from achieving your full potential.
- Discover the power of your life’s purpose to enhance your levels of success and fulfillment, and hot to integrate your purpose into every aspect of your life and work.
- You will experience “real-time” transformation immediately, while we’re together in San Diego.
- Finally (and most importantly), you’ll be a member of the BYEB family and have hundreds of people who you can count on to give you ongoing support to follow through with implementing your blueprint.
In other words, you will leave BYEB as a better version of yourself, equipped with the mindset, step-by-step plan, and the continued support from your new BYEB Family to ensure that the next 12 months of your life are (by far) your best 12 months… ever.
AND… you’ll be upgrading your circle of influence alongside hundreds of like-minded people, to not only become a better version of yourself and create your best year ever, but to co-create this truly once-in-a-lifetime experience, TOGETHER.
