The Project YOU Experience

Your Steps to Self-Discovery

What Makes this Program Different?

The SabbaticalX program is a life-changing, world-class virtual learning experience. The Sabbatical Experience has been purposefully designed so that you will gain the greatest value and insight from each step along the way.

There is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to learning. Therefore, we’ve created this experience to leverage all means of learning including:

You will find each of these learning approaches to be a critical component of the overall experience.

You will complete the learning experience with a well-developed action plan. To be your best and live the legacy now.

We are building a community of like-minded individuals who have a deep passion to truly make a difference for the rest of their lives.

The program is really focused on YOU. It’s all about uncovering new insights and pathways to your future.

The Value Proposition

We inspire successful individuals who are committed to becoming their best in all aspects of their lives and to begin to live their legacy now.

Founder, Leo Pusateri; along with dynamic members of his team, comprise the extraordinary faculty who will coach and inspire you through this process. We also have a support team that knows what it takes to deliver a world-class experience.

A person who has found joy in achieving the full potential in his or her life. They have also made a difference in the lives of others.

Think of every role you play out in your life. You are a spouse or significant other, son or daughter, a friend to many, a possible brother or sister, a member of a work family and a member of a community. Imagine the effort required to be your best in all these areas; what a legacy you would be creating.

We have created a unique, introspective process that will have participants answering elegantly simple, but deceptively difficult questions to discover how they will uniquely become their best selves. We will further inspire participants through engaging learning activities that will leave a lasting, memorable impression.

It’s a lifelong quest to go down the path of learning and discovery. You focus every day on things that make you better. You are constantly pushing the envelope doing everything you can to be better at everything you do.

You begin to live your legacy now by acting on things and causes that mean something to you, now! No time to wait and make a difference in your life or the lives of others. The clock is ticking.

The Seven Elements of TPYX

Why The Project YOU Experience?

We believe:


“I had the privilege of attending The Sabbatical X in the fall of 2019. It was time out in life and a chance to step off the hamster wheel I created in my life. TSX was a gift of "reflection time" on what had been and what could be for me, my family, colleagues, and friends. TSX helped me reevaluate and gain perspective on my life priorities. As a result, I revisit the concepts often and share them with others who can benefit from slowing down and looking in the mirror. I encourage you to learn how to live a life of significance. ”

“I had the good fortune of attending the Sabbatical X Scottsdale, AZ in 2019.

It consisted of a group of very high achievers from all over the country, normally so busy accomplishing, that they not taken adequate time to reflect on their lives and what would be their true purpose in the “fourth quarter of life” - professionally, personally, and spiritually.

The open, honest and sharing atmosphere that Leo and his talented staff created allowed for ALL attendees to comfortably and openly share thoughts, struggles, stories, life lessons, etc. It was a “once in a lifetime” experience for me to be a part of this group. I highly recommend this program to anyone who desires to “Have It All”.

The program guides and mentors to this end goal that we all seem to be searching for, but so few are able to achieve! Sabbatical X allows one to gain valuable self-reflection and to one’s true purpose/role in life heading into the golden years. It was an amazing experience for all who attended. It was a wonderful bonding experience with other professionals that started out as total strangers.

It will continue to be one of the fondest and most positive experiences I have ever had. Thank you Leo and your creative team!”

“I was so pumped up after the program that I felt I could fly home without the plane!

The people who attended, the conversations we had, the feeling of being with like-minded individuals all listening and coaching each other, the amazing faculty-absolute inspiration and thoughts for the years ahead!

If you want to look at and think about the next 5-25 years of your life with the guidance of others who have had similar life issues and a journey towards significance, sign up. You will have no regrets.”

“Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience in Buffalo. I enjoyed it from start to finish. I’ve been mulling and strategizing and this will be the first in a series of musings… so much to contemplate.

I had an interesting conversation with 25 year old daughter Steph. We were sitting by the pool and she asked what the course was all about so I pulled out the notebook and read the questions … fascinating discussion. The questions from the SabbaticalX beg to be discussed as a family.

This led my thinking in a different direction: you have the makings of a family meeting plan in a box.”
