Perfect Day

A Guide to Curing Lifestyle Deficit DisorderTM and Reclaiming Your Business, Your Relationships, and Your Life

Perfect Day offers the cure to this ongoing epidemic. In warm, accessible language and engaging anecdotes gleaned from her client files, Cokie Berenyi takes entrepreneurs on a journey of self-actualization, helping them design their Perfect Day Pyramid.

Cokie creates a top notch experience and you will learn so much from working with her.

  • “While the circumstances that led me to Cokie require cocktails and a longer conversation, I am happy to share with you the benefits of having Cokie as part of my “Life Team”. She is smart. Book smart AND Street smart. Financially and worldly. She anticipates months ahead of me, my goals, my needs, my tolerance. I have come to lean on Cokie prior to making large financial decisions, be it purchasing a home, a boat, requiring legal assistance as it pertains to wills and estates and even requesting her feedback as to accountants and other service providers. Her excellent recommendations have never led me astray. Working with Cokie is peace of mind.”

  • “Cokie took a personal interest in our lives and helped us to understand and define our core values and beliefs. Once we had defined the most important aspects in our lives, she helped direct us to align our financial goals with our lifestyle goals. From that point on, we more fully understood how we could leverage our individual business interests to meet our long-term financial goals, removing the guess work on how to position the business for an exit strategy. Over the course of the next 5 years, we were able to meet or exceed every goal we set! ”

Women are givers. We are caretakers who give to the point of putting ourselves last.

Prioritizing ourselves is not selfish. If we don’t take care of ourselves first, we can’t take care of others, give to our communities, or achieve successful careers.

Realizing personal fulfillment is not selfish. Our joy inspires us to give more—to enrich the world by sharing it. 

Cokie’s passion surges with challenge, whether overcoming everyday problems, or summiting the world’s highest peaks. In working with asset management clients, fellow entrepreneurs and everyday parents balancing home with career, she realized one of the greatest challenges is finding lifestyle balance. And that begins with uncovering your personal passion.

Today, my greatest passion and challenge isn’t to successfully summit Mount Everest next spring and make it home to my two teen girls. As huge a goal as that is, it’s much bigger than that. I want to have an impact beyond a 29,000 foot peak. From now until the monster climb, my passion is committed to Everyday Everest and its campaign to raise $1 million in support of accessible healthcare—specifically cancer screenings for women.” 

I’d love you to join me in that. If you’re interested, click here for how you can help. But I also want my passion to inspire YOU to uncover yours. I want you feel the joy that comes from your inner energetic drive. Not only will you find personal fulfillment within yourself, you’ll discover how you can have positive impact in your home, at your office, around your community, and yes, even in the world.  

Everyday Everest is all about the small obstacles each of us confront and overcome every day to eventually accomplish big goals. We all face challenges in our lives that can feel as hard as scaling Mount Everest, but it just takes one step at a time to scale our personal mountains.

Let Cokie help you reach your summit. All you need to do is take this simple action: share your name and email below and type “YES I’M COMMITTED” in the subject line.  There’s no money or obligation involved. Just a powerful commitment to yourself. 

I’d love to read your comments too; if you know it, share what your passion is and what you’re doing with it; if you’re not quite sure yet, we can uncover it — tell me about your ideas and frustrations. No matter what your internal response is, I want to help you harness it and make it work for you.

I promise either way, the commitment to yourself will be the best thing you’ve done towards joy and fulfillment. I’ll send my monthly newsletter and more information for how you can further your commitment.

Cokie Berenyi and team climbing one of the Great seven summits.
