Ignite your
Life Live

Discover How to
Release Fear and
Create Impact


If you’re like me you have struggled with fear, self-doubt and the feeling of powerlessness. I remember the moment when something inside just clicked and a surge of personal power swept over me. Before I knew it these overwhelming and all consuming feelings were gone. It was like nothing I had ever experienced. To tell you the truth, at the time it was a magical and almost out of body experience. Thinking about it now though, when I break it down to the nitty gritty, all I did was give myself permission to BE.
I invite you to join me at Ignite Your Life Live and give yourself permission to BE.  Ignite Your Life Live is an intimate gathering where you will make connections, release your fears and learn how to create a life of impact.
Ignite Your Life
This is not your average conference. You will be challenged to dig deep, to embrace vulnerability and to awaken the power you already have inside to live your life on fire. Together, we will step into our lives fully ignited.

Event Details


Ignite Your Life Live is a manifestation of several hours spent floating in the pool during the long hot desert summers in Phoenix Arizona. As a child, Geoff used to stare into the clouds and dream about what his life would look like, where he would be and what kind of legacy he would leave. Geoff grew up knowing, even at a young age, life is about service. Ignite Your Life Live is different from other conferences because it’s all about service to YOU. We do not try to sell you anything from the stage or sign you up for any programs. Our team will have many tools available to you if you are interested in plugging in however this is not our focus. Our team is committed to serving you and helping you reach your highest potential. When you get down to the core of IYLL…it’s all about vulnerability and giving yourself permission to BE who you are destined to BE and releasing every obstacle that holds you back. We are here to help facilitate this experience for you.

If you’re into an experience like this, than IYLL is for you.

Ignite Your Life Live
Before Geoffrey Alan Gray became an advocate and mentor for “igniting” people’s passions and changing their mindsets, he had his own challenges to face. If you were to ask him he would say growing up he thought he was the very definition of average and greatness was merely a dream. He grew up in a poor part of town and faced head-on a family addicted to drugs, bullying throughout school, and complete reliance on his faith for survival. Finding purpose and direction in church, Geoffrey went from spreading the word with new friends on the piers of southern California, to traveling the world and making an impact in countries such as India, Honduras and Spain. Just as he felt life was falling into place, he returned home to face the loss of several very close family members in a very short time period. This loss coupled with the loss of his job within the church, triggering a downward spiral into a deep depression and substance abuse. It took a near death experience to help him overcome his mental and spiritual blocks, essentially allowing him to be reborn and on a new path to discover his true purpose. Geoffrey’s story is the perfect example of how anyone can overcome the obstacles in their life and ignite their passions and drive.

Geoffrey is a coach, speaker, author, mentor and in many ways a minister of faith to those who have lost their voice. He believes we are all destined to leave a legacy and change the world. He’s dedicated his life to helping others find their way by igniting their lives, passions, and mindsets.

Calvin Wayman

Imagine you were born into a family so large that the most common question people ask you is “can remember all of your siblings names?”

Calvin Wayman is 1 of 45 kids in his immediate family. He grew up on family farm in a strict fundamentalist religion that practiced polygamy—1 dad, 4 moms (yes, FOUR), and 44 brothers and sisters!

From an early age, he was taught exactly what “could” or “couldn’t” do–how to act, what to think, what to desire and not desire, even down to the kind of underwear he was supposed to wear.

But he always felt he was meant for more, and had a dream of designing a life on his own terms.

In 2015 at 27 years old, he took the plunge to leave everything he ever knew to pursue the life he had always dreamed of. He started selling door-to-door, facing adversity and rejection that helped mold him.

As rocky as his story has been, he’s been documenting the entire journey on social media to help others on their own path.

Some of the things he’s done are incredible:

  • He was an employee and started working for himself full time
  • He was $53k in debt and documented him becoming debt free
  • He had never run a marathon before and he ran a 50 mile ultra marathon
  • He was overweight and lost over 50 pounds
  • He had a dream of one day speaking on stage with his mentors, and he’s since shared the stage with people like: Brendon Burchard, Lewis Howes, Mel Robbins, Jay Shetty, and Tom Bilyeu)

Today, he’s a proud papa and successful entrepreneur. He’s a TEDx Speaker, and the best-selling author of Fish Out of Water. He’s the host of a podcast carrying his name, and he stars in the YouTube show Making The Millionaire: a vlog where he’s documenting his story from polygamy to prosperity–from $53,000 in debt, to his first one million dollars. He’s been featured in 100s of magazine, television, radio, and podcast shows—including Entrepreneur Magazine, and the Dave Ramsey Show.

Calvin is also the founder and CEO of The Prosperity Loop: a company that helps people live their dreams and make an impact on the world through first improving their relationship with money.

Calvin’s story shows that it doesn’t matter what everyone around you–including negative voices in your head–tell you about what you can and cannot do. And despite the adversity you’ll face along the way, you have the power of creating the life of your dreams.

Julie Juju Christopher

Julie “Juju’ Christopher is an International speaker and best-selling author who is the world-renowned expert on business intuition, aka Biztuition. Via her proprietary process, Julie has empowered C-level executives and entrepreneurs globally to become better leaders and scale their business faster by harnessing and cultivating their skill of Biztuition.

Juju has since been widely recognized for her unique contributions to the business world. She has been interviewed on shows like Dr. Drew, Nancy Grace, Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield, and more. Juju has also been featured as one of the world’s preeminent experts on sites like Forbes and Authority Magazine. Juju is also a regular contributor for Entrepreneur, Thrive Global and other media outlets, and has even graced the set of the popular television show, Shark Tank… not once, but TWICE!

Julie found her path as an entrepreneur first as a professional musician and recording artist in France. It was her heightened sense of intuition that led her to America with only $50 in her pocket, a guitar on her back, and no English. Despite her humble beginnings, Juju had a vision and believed that she could make a difference. Her early struggle only fueled her desire to realize her dream of helping people realize their full potential.

In mastering healing arts like yoga, Reiki, and other proven techniques, she has since been called on to assist and guide entrepreneurs on their missions. Today, she helps executives, professionals, and corporate teams develop their own innate skills and abilities with Biztuition—ultimately guiding them into becoming charismatic and confident leaders who attract abundance, love, and success.

Throughout her career, Juju has successfully helped entrepreneurs from all walks of life to navigate and overcome the challenges of growing a business. With her keen power of Biztuition, she foresaw that a quantum shift in the business world was inevitable, and she quickly realized the need for leaders to seek help with modern-day difficulties like The Infobesity Epidemic. As a result, Juju created a special combination of teachings to ease her students’ journey towards self-awareness and in the process reveal core strategies for getting to the heart of self-realization and transformation.

She inspires others to lead from a place of Self-acceptance, simplicity, and love to reignite their own master buddha within.

Her mission is to build a “Human R~Evolution” Community in order to share and guide others in walking the path of self-actualization. She applies her music, singing, and wisdom to ignite spirituality in business. On stage, Juju uses all of her unique talents and shines as an “EnterTrainer.”

Ben Gower was thrown into the adult world of figuring out how to provide for a family at the age of 18 when he learned he had a little one on the way. It wasn’t long before he found door to door sales as an opportunity to provide well for his family and his entrepreneurial journey began.

Today, Ben has over a decade of commission-only sales experience in both door to door and in high ticket coaching sales. The most powerful sales tactic he’s learned in all of that time is to simply care about the customer and to find a win/win.

Today Ben teaches new coaches how to market and sell their services using social media. His mission is to empower those committed to the work of transformation with the tools needed to change more lives because of the difference it’s made in his own life.
