A Note From Tissa

I love helping women answer the questions, “Who are you? Who are you as a leader? Who are you in your life?” I hear similar things from far too many women …I wish I had the time to explore this. I wish I had the time to figure out what was next. I don’t want to do the same thing again. I want to do something more purposeful, more fulfilling. But I don’t know how to figure that out. 

I realized I could help women with that exploration. One of the most amazing thing that comes from these courses is seeing incredibly busy, successful women take time and space for themselves – time they usually don’t take. This isn’t just about unlocking your leadership legacy. It’s about unlocking your prioritization of yourself. It’s taking time once a week – powerful, transformative time – for you to discover, explore, and answer questions you’ve been thinking about. Answers with powerful impact. And, doing it with other amazing women means real, authentic connections and real-time feedback. It’s amazing to see long-lasting friendships develop. So many relationships bloom from cohorts – women sponsor and mentor each other, extend resources to each other, and become unexpected allies as they go through this journey together. 

I’m so honored and excited to share this journey with you.
