Jeff Lerner - CEO and Co-Founder
Co-founder of Lifestyle Design International, owner of award winning digital marketing agency Xurli, author, speaker, and more... throughout his 20s Jeff spent most of his nights working as a jazz pianist and most of his days trying not to be a "starving artist" for the rest of his life. After multiple start ups across various fields that stalled or fizzled, including a restaurant franchise debacle that left him over $400,000 in debt at the age of 28, Jeff finally found his true business calling with the world of online marketing.
Within 2 years Jeff had more than paid off his debts and was ranked one of the top 300 monthly producers in all of home-based business worldwide, using the Internet to outperform leaders with decades of experience and teams of thousands. In 2010 Jeff took a position in New york City as COO of a leading online marketing firm that had helped pioneer the "top tier direct selling" industry, gaining invaluable experience in operations and enterprise management.
In 2011 Jeff created the "T3FP formula" and began teaching it online with a simple YouTube video. It grew into his own system with over 50,000 users and has become the bedrock of an entire industry, anchoring over $250 million in direct response sales to date for multiple companies founded by his students.
His own T3FP implementations have yielded 3 multi-million dollar companies and helped him create his own "not-quite-4-hour-work-week-but-close". He spends most of his time with his wife and 4 children either traveling or enjoying the beautiful Southern Utah landscape where he lives.

David Nayavich- Creative Director
To say that Dave is a pioneer and thought leader when it comes to direct response design is an understatement. Having built his Direct Response Web Agency to well over 4000 clients in less than 5 years, Dave quickly became the “go-to” guy for Internet Marketers and Infopreneurs (information product entrepreneurs), leading the charge behind some of the most profitable product launches to date on the Internet.
While attending Wilkes University for Business Administration and Graphic Design, Dave started his first internet business – “The N.E.P.A. Network”. His company was quickly acquired by a large local media firm… and that’s when his entrepreneurial drive really kicked in. Dave has since gone on to build several successful online businesses over the past two decades, including a wholesale merchandising company, an information product publishing company, and was a founding partner in a direct sales company that shattered many sales records.
His greatest accomplishment? “Being married to my best friend for 31 years and raising 5 amazing children who have grown up to be compassionate, loving and respectful to others and always look for the good in everyone. If I accomplish nothing else, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.”
When Dave isn’t toiling over his next pixel perfect masterpiece, you’ll often times find him playing golf with his sons. He also loves chillin’ poolside, listening to some Bruce Springsteen, puffing on an occasional Marlboro menthol… maybe even sippin’ a Landshark Ale – most likely with his 200 pound Newfoundland “Bruno” by his side.

Mckensie loves spending time away from work with her family and her puppy, especially when they can take a trip to the ocean. Hiking, camping, playing sports, and four wheeling over the sand dunes are some of her favorite ways to wind down. Yet Mckensie is also up for adventure, and she loves traveling to see new places. We could not be happier to have her as part of our team.
