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!)
It’s for women who want to do more and be more, yet who sometimes doubt whether 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 women who want to keep doing what they’re already doing, but better – with less juggle and greater joy; busy women overdue a little ‘time out’ to rethink their approach – to their work, relationships, well-being, finances and life.
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 know that they’re here to live an even bigger life than the one they’re living women and are ready to ditch the excuses that have kept them from fully pursuing what they want and changing what they don’t.
Who this weekend is not for?
Women who are content with the status quo or just not ready to choose growth over comfort. (Well, not yet anyway.)
A Quick Overview
Friday November 18th
You’ll arrive around 4pm (though anytime from 2pm is fine!) and unpack your bags. Assuming you aren’t coming wiht 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 by 5.45!)
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 November 19th
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 forest 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!)
Sunday November 19th
You may choose to sleep in or enjoy another brisk morning walk’n’talk with me and your fellow ‘bravesters’.
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’ for the year ahead so you can start 2017 strong – 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 2017 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 who you are, what you can do, why you must do it and how to get started.
I’ll see to it!

Here’s a short video from our Live Brave Women’s Weekend (shot on Jenny’s iPhone):
