I am so freaking excited about the group of women that is coming together for the Strength In Mothers Mentorship! And your responses, enthusiasm, and questions about this program have been overwhelming. Thank you!!
I can’t afford it or can’t spend that kind of money on myself
Listen, I get it. This may be a steep investment for you at a time in your life when money feels tight. As moms, we feel guilty about pretty much everything, but especially when it comes to investing in ourselves. We put our family’s needs and expenses first while we wear clothes from 10 years ago and eat the crust of our kids’ sandwiches for lunch.
But, this is the exact mindset that keeps you stuck, exhausted, and honestly, maybe a little resentful. Right?
Ask any of the women who have already signed up and they will tell you that just the act of investing in themselves changed their perspective almost immediately, like this text I got from one of the new members:
We haven’t even started yet, but her mental commitment to freedom is already changing her life.
As far as feeling selfish, sure our kids don’t want us to take an hour away from them, and maybe our partners get grumpy about us spending money. But you know what they DO love? A mom/partner/colleague who is happier, has more physical and mental energy to devote to them, is more secure, and feels GOOD in their presence.
In fact, one of the number one things I hear from the women I work with is how their relationships with their partners improved immediately when they shifted their mindset. No more separate dinners, no more stressing at restaurants, no more mental energy taken up completely by how you look or food.
I scraped together $15,000 to invest in my own mentorship last year and it was so life-changing that I’ve signed up for another year. My four children (ages 5-20) are old enough to say “Mom, you’re so much happier and healthier now than when we were little!” An investment in me is an investment in them, and through this new mindset, I get that now.
I’m introverted and nervous about sharing
You may not believe this if you’ve seen me on social media with my own mentorship gatherings, but I’m a huge introvert. I actually cried when I hit the sign up button for that group last year, because I was so terrified. I was afraid I wouldn’t feel like sharing, afraid I wouldn’t fit in, and afraid I’d be the same wallflower that I was in school.
But a) the money invested lit a fire under me to give it my all and b) the women were all so similar to me and feeling the exact same way, so it was actually really easy to bond. Sure the first couple of calls were awkward, but in no time we all had each other’s numbers and they had me doing things like Soul Cycle and climbing the Santa Monica stairs (click here to see my highlight reel from my mastermind).
I’ve come to recognize that “out of my comfort zone” feeling as being a signal that something incredible and magical is about to happen. And now I’m pushing to find it all the time (like starting this mentorship!).
My life is so insane right now – I’ll wait until next time
Yep, life is insane. You’re a mom! And guess what, something new is always going to come up. There is always going to be chaos, a new situation or obstacle to overcome.
The timing will NEVER be perfect.
Waiting for perfect circumstances is part of the mindset we’re trying to drop in the Strength in Mothers curriculum. This is part of perfectionist or black and white thinking, which keeps us stuck and inconsistent. Instead, you’ll be learning how to navigate your healthy lifestyle and self-care through any and all circumstances. Imperfect baby steps forward are so much better than perfectly crafted steps that are never taken.
And, if I do another round of the mentorship, it won’t be until late fall. This is your last chance to join for at least six months, and possibly at this investment level.
I never finish any programs
That’s because 99.9% of the fitness and diet stuff out there doesn’t address the reason you can’t stick with it – your mindset! Your mindset is the reason you’re working against your own body, against your own brain, and why you’re either stuck unable to stick with anything.
Which is exactly why this is the main thing we’ll be working on in the mentorship. There are meal plans and workouts available for free all over the internet. You probably have a graveyard of programs that you’ve spent money on and they haven’t worked (long-term, at least). This is why. They didn’t teach you how to think about food and exercise, and in reality, they probably made your mindset WORSE!
And, in this program you will be part of a tight-knit, intimate group that will make you feel accountable if you don’t show up. We’ve got you and your best interest at heart!
I’m not sure if you/the mentorship will help me
I can promise you that if you show up with an open mind, read the lessons, participate in the calls and really try to implement what you’re learning, THIS. WILL. CHANGE. YOUR. LIFE.
Now, if you’re the kind of person who isn’t open to growth and super-stuck on the concept of temporary weight loss, this is not for you.
This program is for those who are ready to stop putting band-aids on symptoms and get to the heart of the issue so they can stop starting over, hopping on and off bandwagons, and start living their best life mentally and physically.

I hope this helps, but if I missed your reason, hit reply to this email and let me know and I’ll be happy to answer it for you!
Don’t forget – enrollment ends tomorrow (Wednesday May 1st) at midnight!
