I am a business strategist and lifestyle designer who’s passionate about helping busy entrepreneurs create the freedom lifestyle that they deserve without sacrificing business growth.
I’ve been privileged to work with top entrepreneurs like Joe Polish, Jeff Walker, Yanik Silver, and many more through my various companies.
I used to be a workaholic who spent over 80 hours per week growing my companies, until I had a life changing incident that set my priorities straight. The incident motivated me to learn how to design my business around my life instead of designing my life around my business. I’m now able to run my 3 companies in 3 different industries by working just an average of 3 days per week, while they keep on growing.
We Believe That The American Business Culture
TO “GRIND, GRIND, GRIND”,
IS “WRONG, WRONG, WRONG”.
As busy entrepreneurs, we’ve been brainwashed into thinking that working harder and throwing more resources at a project is the best path to success and happiness. Some of the greatest business leaders like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Gary Vaynerchuck, and the late Steve Jobs are idolized and praised for their “constant hustle”.
However, this is one of the biggest lies ever told within the American business culture.
THIS “WORK HARDER” MENTALITY SIMPLY ISN’T TRUE AND IT’S NOT SUSTAINABLE LONG TERM.
I’ve learned the hard way that working smarter, not harder is more productive, fulfilling, and leads to lasting success. When I was in my 30’s, I had reached incredible levels of worldly success, but it came at the expense of working 80 hours per week. Because of the brainwashing in our business society, I thought that was the only way to succeed. I then had a few life-changing incidents (including a house fire) that made me realize I was doing things all wrong. I spent several years restructuring my businesses and my life to create a lifestyle that I absolutely love.
During this process, I learned that the money you make and the time you spend growing your business are only as valuable as the freedom they give you to create a meaningful life! I also learned that you can have growth in your business AND plenty of free time, and in fact, working less and having more free time is one of the key ingredients to growing your business.
So, are you ready to have growth in your business and plenty of free time, without having to pick one over the other? Are you open to the possibility that maybe there is a better way than the
Here’s What People ARE SAYING
I used to be a workaholic, and now I’m working less than ever and my company is still growing.
Wow, I can’t believe the principles covered in the Vacation Effect program work so well. I used to be a workaholic, and now I’m working less than ever and my company is still growing. I’m letting my team step up and use their gifts. It’s like a dream come true. I just trusted the process that Denise took me through in the coaching calls and the materials and it has paid off. I’m now a believer and have made these principles a way of life.

I don’t enter into any business deal unless
I run it past Denise first
I’ve worked with Denise Gosnell on literally hundreds of business and personal projects over the past 10+ years. Her diverse skillset as a business strategist, lawyer, real estate investor, problem solver, and collaborator has been invaluable to me. I don’t enter into any important business deal unless I run it past Denise first.

If You’ve Always Dreamed of Having
Freedom Without Sacrificing
Business Growth, I Can Help
There are two ways to work with me.
The first way is through my coaching program called The Vacation Effect – where I guide you through the exact process that I went through to transform my own life and business. My program has now helped many top entrepreneurs do the same.
I also work with private consulting clients on a one-on-one basis, but these spots are very limited and expensive.

Deanna Rogers Director of Events, Boost Events
I’ve known and collaborated in various ways with Denise for nearly a decade. And now watching her step into her gift has been incredible. Denise has spoken at several Maverick events and I'm excited to have her present again on how entrepreneurs can take more time off and have more fun, while still growing their businesses. This is a topic that can have tremendous impact for all of us that seem to think this is a paradox.
Yanik Silver Founder Maverick1000 and Author Evolved Enterprise
Denise has spoken at two of our previous events and is an amazing combination of smart, kind, and engaging. She has a great ability to recognize what’s holding someone back and then call them on their own B.S. in a direct, yet loving way. I’ve worked with hundreds of speakers over the years and would highly recommend Denise to any event planner.
