Welcome to The Lifestyle Empire – A blog about life and guide to lifestyle design.


I’m Dane Bergman and like you I know there is more to life than the conventional, delayed-gratification theory of getting a job, working hard and retiring old.

Instead, I’ve decided to embark on a journey to design my life and do things important to me such as travelling, saving our planet, endless adventure and developing my mind and body. I want to help you to do the same.

The purpose of The Lifestyle Empire is to provide you with first-hand experience and actionable techniques to bring your dreams of lifestyle design to reality. I want to be as transparent as possible throughout my own journey to allow you learn from my successes and failures.

My lifestyle pursuits, goals, business strategies and adventures will be completely available for you to see. I’m not doing this to show off as I’m sure I will fail more times than I succeed, but rather to provide you with a clear path and blueprint to guide you on your own journey.

Within the pages of The Lifestyle Empire you will find articles on four core subjects: TravelAdventure, Health and Fitness and Lifestyle Design. All with the conviction of improving your quality of life and furthering your knowledge as you embark upon this epic journey.

If anything you have read above resonates with you then I invite to take the time and have a read through the blog, you may like it. Or you may not, and that is okay too.

Please feel free to sign up to The Lifestyle Empire below and be the first to take advantage of special reports, exclusive offers and all the goodness that comes with the blog.

It’s time to create your own Lifestyle Empire.
