The 8 Facets of Life

About the Podcast

Hosted by Chris Conley and Debbie Ellis

The 8 facets of life started with a Christmas gift, a simple planner designed to help Chris Conley organize his schedule for the coming year. What he didn’t anticipate was how that basic calendar would change his life, and is now changing the
lives of others. The 8 facets of life: a simple title with seemingly simple principles; but each a stepping stone designed to build a whole life – mentally, spiritually, and physically.

“That planner I received was like any other, except for one page. That page listed nine areas for goals.” Conley said. “I asked myself if these areas covered all aspects of life and I began to go through each of the nine. I combined two of them and edited a couple and created The 8 Facets of Life.” After applying these goals to his own life for an entire year, Chris was ready to share his new way of thinking with others.
