Please join me this May for a weekend of connection, clarity and inspiration in beautiful Hepburn Springs, Victoria, Australia.
Life is busy. In fact, it’s so busy that sometimes we forget to slow down long enough to think about the direction we’re moving. Without meaning to, we can find ourselves going through the motions but not living a life that truly inspires us.
The Live Brave weekend is about you. It’s about giving yourself timeout to get really clear about what you most want for yourself and to reset your compass on the highest vision for your life. One that taps into your talents, honours your values and inspires your spirit. Deeply.
There’ll be lots of talking: some of it by me, some of it by you, and lots of it together. You’re going to laugh. A lot. (You may cry. A little.) You’re also going to get really present to all that you’ve learned up to now and the many possibilities that still await.
I don’t have all the answers. But I’ve learnt that when you stop still long enough (not easy for many women!), you discover that you know a lot more than you think!
Like what you need to say no to, what you need to say yes to, what you need to let go of and what you must confront about the price you’ve been paying for holding on to ‘stories’ that no longer serve you (if they ever did).
All of which will take courage.
And I know a thing or two about that!
(If you’ve landed here but have no clue who I am, you can get the full scoop here.)
This weekend won’t involve African drumming and I won’t be giving you a 10-step formula to ‘find your bliss’. However, drawing on many years of coaching capable women like yourself and facilitating all sorts of groups around the world, I’ll help you create your own personal roadmap to chart a braver path forward.
Between plenty of laughter with fabulous women you will:
Rewrite your personal story to expand what’s possible for you in your work, wellbeing, wealth, relationships and life
Uncover the core fears and blind spots that have been holding you back
Connect to your Big Why & clarify the highest vision for your life (every part of it!)
Design daily resilience rituals to help you be at your best more often – body mind and spirit
Design a specific goal plan to chart a braver path in 2018 and beyond
Learn how to practice self-compassion to counter your habit of self-criticism so you can quiet your inner critic, get off your own back and stop letting self-doubt call the shots
Embody the presence of a woman to be reckoned with; highly valued and hugely respected
Learn simple but powerful techniques to
Create the accountability you need to stay in action when motivation wanes and things don’t go to plan (as always happens!)
So whether you want to climb further up the ladder you’re on or move in a whole new direction, I’ll be giving you tools to step more powerfully into action. Because if there’s one thing I know that you don’t want – it’s investing any more energy or time on a path that isn’t bringing out the very best of who you are.
If this sounds like your kind of weekend, then I hope you can join me.
Is this weekend right for you?
Not sure if this weekend is right for you? Fair enough. Let me tell you who it’s for (and who it’s not for… because it’s not for everyone!)
It’s for women who want to make their own unique mark on the world, but too often doubt if they can.
It’s for women who’ve been wondering “Where to from here?” and are ready for change but feel unsure or overwhelmed at where to begin.
It’s for ambitious women who want to take their career/business to the next level but with less juggle and more joy and need a little ‘time out’ to reassess their approach.
It’s for capable women. Career women. Entrepreneurial women. Aspiring women… women who are ‘up-to-stuff’!
Most of all, it’s for women who aren’t willing to settle for anything less than the biggest life they are capable of living and are ready to get out of their own way to pursue what they want and change what they don’t.
Who this weekend is not for?
Women who are comfortable being comfortable or just not ready to let go the payoff they get from staying where they are. (Well, not yet anyway.)
“When it comes to helping people make braver decisions, Margie is a master. Her practical wisdom will guide you toward a more authentic, passionate and purposeful life.”

A Quick Overview
Friday 25 May
You’ll arrive around 4pm (though anytime from 2pm is fine!) and unpack your bags. Assuming you aren’t coming with a friend, now’s when you will get to meet the wonderful woman you’ll be sharing your room with. The women who attended my first weekend will attest to the wonderful friendships they made.
Depending on how much time you have, you may want to sit in the beautiful gardens or treat yourself at the nearby Hepburn Springs Spa to kick off your weekend.
At 5pm we will gather together for a welcome glass of whatever takes your fancy.
At 5.45pm I will formally kick off the weekend and we’ll make formal introductions (so it’s very important you’ve arrived on time!)
I’ll then get you started thinking and talking about the highest (and bravest) intentions you have for your life.
As I’ll be doing right throughout the weekend, I’ll both challenge you to ‘think bigger’ about yourself and encourage you to challenge some of the assumptions, labels, rules and ‘shoulds’ that have influenced your past choices and which might be getting in the way of you doing and becoming all that you want most.
You’ll also be given a keepsake journal to use that you can return back to for inspiration in the years to come.
We will then head to our private dining room for a wonderful 3-course dinner. Prepare for plenty of laughter and lots of real, big thinking and brave conversations.
Saturday 26 May
You’ll wake up to the fresh country air and we’ll head out for a brisk 45-minute walk (and talk) to the nearby national park to bring our bodies to life before breakfast. (Besides caffeine.)
Over breakfast you’ll enjoy connecting with other women, learning their story and sharing your own. You’ll find lots in common.
Our morning session will be a ‘Life Audit’ to identify what’s working and what’s not. We’ll then focus on the ‘Power of Story’ – how your stories have shaped your life, undermined self-confidence, and can expand or limit your future. You’ll be guided to rewrite those stories that are holding you back. It’s a cool exercise!
After lunch, we’ll clarify your big ‘Why’, then figure out your ‘What’. You’ll reconnect with what lights you up and reset your compass on your own True North. I’ll be sharing evidence-based strategies to help you begin moving toward more of what you want and away from what you don’t. The kind of things you can do to help you build resilience, stay focused, keep motivated, manage naysayers and keep your inner critic in its place.
I’ll also be sharing insights and tools you can use to address the issues that are undermining your ‘success’ (however you choose to define it) in the core areas of your life. So more talking and thinking, writing and growing, sharing and connecting.
Late afternoon (around 3.30) you’ll get some ‘time off’ to explore nearby Daylesford, take a walk in the local forest (plenty of terrific bush tracks) or just chill out on the beautiful lawns before dressing up for evening aperitifs!
We will then meet for drinks before another delicious dinner and fun evening of simply celebrating who we are! (Because we don’t do that near enough!)r dapibus leo.
Sunday 27 May
You may choose to sleep in or enjoy another brisk morning walk’n’talk with me and the fabulous new women you’ll have bonded with already.
After breakfast, we’ll begin tying the lessons, insights and ideas and dreams all together.
You’ll put pen to paper to write down your Big Brave Game Plan – enlisting support, clarifying next steps and creating accountability to keep you moving forward on the days when things don’t go to plan (they’re inevitable!)
You’ll share your 2018/19 game plan with others and help them to fine-tune theirs (because we can do more together than we ever can alone!)
We will wrap up (#hugs) at 1pm to give you time to catch flights or make your way back home.
If you have time on your hands you can enjoy all the wonderful local attractions – soak up in the local mineral springs, browse some of the stores in Daylesford or simply take time for yourself and new friends to enjoy the gorgeous spas in the area.
You’ll leave recharged and ready for your re-entry back to life.
But it won’t be the same. Because you won’t be the same (not quite). You’ll be stronger, and wiser, and braver.
You’ll also be a whole lot clearer about the woman you want to be in the world, what you most want and how you need to train-the-brave to make it your reality.
I’ll see to it!

Hear What Other Women Say…
“This weekend was a priceless opportunity to take a step back from my hectic day-to-day life and reassess my goals and priorities.

Margie's energy is invigorating and her perspective and wisdom inspiring.
I registered for Margie's Live Brave Weekend a little cynical. I needn’t have been. It was an amazing weekend that I got an incredible amount from and can highly recommend it to all women, from all backgrounds and walks of life.
Margie is an inspiring motivator. In business terms, her Live Brave Weekend was a perfect stock take and strategic planning weekend!

We laughed, we cried, we had life altering breakthroughs and we got to love and appreciate ourselves and the people in our life a whole lot more.
