If not now, when? You’ve been dreaming about change for a while. A new venture, a different role, an artistic exploration or a relocation. Perhaps your next big thing has been lingering, unformed in your shadows or reappears in tantalising, inspirational flashes ... But the conversation never moves forward.
Struggling to find time between pieces of life means taking a risk - your chores for the day may kill the dreams for your lifetime*. Whatever you’re longing for this is your opportunity.Let us give life to “something different” in you!
We are Nicki and Rachel. We both have three kids to raise and a business to run. We’ve been practicing how to make major life choices for years, and helping each other to do it. Now, for the first time, we’ve combined our individual coaching practices, real-world business experience and life survival tactics to support other talented parents.
We need your presence to do it, for a few hours a week. Time… that never-enough resource. Making time for “something different” is an act of rebellion! It’s a step into the unknown, exhilarating and terrifying, which is why we respect it. We promise your dream will grow from taking this step. We’ve designed exercises, tools and techniques which will stretch your vision and open your heart to what's possible. Are you ready?!We invite you to join us!
We know that growing together benefits your progress. In a series of 6, small-group, workshop sessions we will be together live to share as a group how to be the “real me”, challenge each other to move through what holds us back and cross edges you've never dared look at before. We know that with the accountability and friendly support of other like-minded risk-takers you will grow in ways you can't alone. Our friendship is evidence that inspirational allies make bold choices possible.Your future-friends will come together in 6 workshops starting October 2019.

"After a year of being stuck and overwhelmed and rarely showing up as my best self, Rachel's coaching helped me create a big change in my career and some much needed rewriting of my story. She has a way of holding you lovingly and fiercely so that you can trust yourself and let go of what holds you back. I'm immensely grateful for her feminine wisdom, playful irreverence, and unwillingness to accept mediocrity.” (Mihca)
“Nicki makes everything so clear for me. She took a big-assed spaghetti junction of a decision point in my life, and turned it into bite-sized steps that not only stopped me hyperventilating long enough to get on board with, but to ACTUALLY ACHIEVE! …She made ME accountable – she took all my hopes and dreams and turned them into a plan that somehow made it feel like MY idea – then, in making me not want to let HER down, taught me how I actually didn’t want to let MYSELF down.” (Lara)
"Rachel is amazing. She has given me the tools to identify, acknowledge, move past some limiting beliefs and expand my perspective, which has really improved my life. Rachel has helped me build new bridges towards success and opened my eyes to so many opportunities that are fun!" (Katy)
“Every time I leave the meeting room after my sessions with Nicki, I take with me a lot of encouragement and I learned to always believe in myself. Nicki helped me discover my signature strengths. I will forever be grateful of having the leadership training with you. It’s been really awesome and I wish many more can share the experience…” (Mae)FAQs

PLEASE NOTE: The Eventbrite calendar shows only the 1st event, once registered you will be expected to attend all 6 workshops.
Do I need to come to every session?
Yes, we'd like you to commit to that because we've designed it to support your development that way. Like any other course, our expectation is that the content will build from one week to the next. If you attend all 6 workshops you will get the most benefit from your investment. If, on a rare occassion, you can't attend a session we ask you to let us know in advance and we'll discuss what's best for you. For some content you'll be able to catch up by listening to the recorded link, but missing a session means won't get the coaching and connection (which happens live). Being present in person is when the real magic happens.
Where are you doing this workshop?
We'll use Zoom for every session. It's free to download to any device and it's free to use over WiFi. With your permission, we will record every session and send it to the group to support everyone's development each week.
Why are you doing this workshop online?
We wanted to run this workshop together but we live 5000 miles apart, which is too far to commute. We’ve done many online workshops as participants and trainers. It works amazingly well, the connection is real and meaningful. Also, it saves you from travel time and logistical challenges, like who’s going to be at home to look after the kids. If you've not been to an online event like this before we ask you to trust us - just give it a go! You won't regret it.
How many people will be in the group?
Our maximum is 8 participants, plus Nicki and Rachel (10 total). Once registered for the Oct 15th start the group will be closed and the same participants will be expected to attend for the whole series.
Who is this workshop for?
Anyone is welcome. Our intention is to support parents who feel ready to make a change. We want support anyone who wants to take a courageous next step towards a major life goal. We are committed to the learning and development of everyone in the group - once we have the final participant list we will adjust our content to meet everyone's needs, if necessary. We have built our content from our personal experience of parenthood, so it's especially relevant to Mothers. We see parenthood as a collaboration between many allies. Fathers are encouraged to join us. In the (unlikely) event that we feel your participation is in anyway disruptive to the dynamic of the group we reserve the right to cancel your registration (with / without refund).
What's included in the ticket price?
For 90 minutes each week you'll get the undivided attention of 2 professionally certified coaches, 7 supportive friends and full access to your wisest Self. All 6 group workshop sessions (90mins) are included in the price, PLUS a recording of the session and the materials we've developed to support you. Materials will include worksheets, exercises, recommended techniques and suggested tools for to take away. Our aim is that you build your own bespoke plan to continue your progress in 2020. You'll need to download Zoom to participate (free) and you may want to print the resources in advance of each session (not necessary). We will share all material by email. We are committed to your development. We invite you to share with us what else you think you might need.
What ongoing support will you provide in 2020?
For 6 weeks you will have seen how 2 professionally certified coaches, 7 inspirational friends and your wisest Self can make incredible action happen. It's up to you to decide what's next for YOU. We will help you to make choices which support your growth, maintain your energy and create progress. Our experience is that a group of this nature often co-creates what it needs during their time together e.g. through social media connection, monthly meetups etc. Outside of these workshop sessions, Nicki and Rachel are both available as coaches for private sessions (additional cost).
What's the refund policy?
Sorry, no refunds will be issued. We reserve the right to refuse your registration if we believe there will be any issues in your participation. We will not accept abusive or discriminatory behaviour. In the unlikely event that we need to cancel your registration we will return your ticket price.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
No. We want to know who you are to accept your registration, please give your full name and email address so we can contact you with more information before the event starts.
