What are others saying about their life-changing experience with the ARETELife experience. 

– Chris F

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.

– Roseann D.

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!”

– Gwen M.

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!

– Justin M.

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!

– Danya C. 

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.

– David N.

During the past six months of my coaching experience, my production has doubled and I’m set to more than double my numbers from last year.

– Janet P.

I have increased my income by 53%, but even better is that I have increased my net by 262%.


– Michelle B.

When I first wrote down my goals for the year, I about had a heart attack and 9 months into it I realized I already achieved those goals and I attribute that success with working with Derek.

  – Annie V.

They say that “Behind every fearless player is a fearless coach who refused to let them be anything but the best they can be.” From day one Derek has been that coach in my life. I cannot recommend him enough! Through coaching He led me down a path of self-discovery that clarified my motivation, dreams, and goals. Then held me accountable to that life vision in a compassionate and matter of fact way. I know the small everyday action steps I need to take to accomplish my weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. More importantly than professional results, with Derek encouragement I am a better leader, mother, wife, and friend to myself.

 – Sarah P.

I continue coaching as a way to define my goals, get clarity, get humor, and have understanding (and sometimes to get the kick in the pants that I need). The definition of coaching is “a teaching or training process in which an individual gets support while learning to achieve a specific personal or professional result or goal”. Partnering with Derek will enable you to set your specific goals and he will hold you accountable.”
