There are 36 hours left to reserve your spot at Stratejoy Summer Camp.
36 hours left to take the leap, have the conversation, push your edge, use those vacation days, carve out the time + say an enthusiastic (if slightly nervous) YES.
The Camp Bus leaves at midnight PST this Friday!
We’ve been hard at work at putting together a magical + deep, playful + transformational, restorative + energizing retreat for the 71 women (so far!) joining us in August.
As we plot and plan, we’ve been recounting times in our own lives when we went out on a limb to say *yes* to ourselves — when we valued connection and reflection, courage and presence.
Our stories reminded us of the Camp experience we’re creating for you — one that is not only going to be a freakin’ blast, but also, one that you’ll look back on and say,
“Oh yes, that’s when everything shifted for me.”
There is power in gathering with other like-minded women who want to connect on a deep level and and talk about the big stuff. There is immense value in having dedicated time alone to reconnect with yourself and your dreams. And there is a beautiful magic that happens when you push yourself outside of your comfort zone!
Want to hear our stories? Read on!
In January 2015, I invited 8 women into my living room. I had met them each at least once; most of them didn’t know each other. But we all were business owners and we all felt alone in our pursuit of our own American Dream. When we sat down, I asked them to answer two questions: what do you love about business and what are you struggling with?
Three hours later, we were all still talking, crying, laughing, and finally feeling understood.
Fast forward to now — these women are the ones that hold me in their arms when I struggle, have drinks with me when I win, and fight to make themselves available when I need help. I never had really good girlfriends, and finally having them has changed my personal life, my business life, and made me feel confident that I can actually get to my own American Dream.
And it all started sitting in a circle of women with a few glasses of wine.
It wasn’t more than a few months after leaning into the world of personal development that I found Molly and Stratejoy. I knew I’d landed smack in the middle of my people in this joyful corner of the internet.
And it wasn’t more than a few months after that when I was brave enough to take my life in a new and exciting direction.
Armed with new knowledge about how to transform my definition of self-worth and emerge from my own QLC, I decided to save up some cash and kick off a new chapter of my life. And before the reality of it all could set in, I went on a personal pilgrimage, zooming around the American West for a month with the essentials for a transformative moment: my sleeping bag, a journal, a camera, and an openness to possibility…
I was taking time out to connect with nobody but myself. Time out to hit reset. Time out to dig into the details of where I wanted my life to go. Time out to dance my booty off at concerts, explore a part of the world I’d never seen, eat fish tacos in San Diego and BBQ in Montana, and meet my newfound Stratejoy sisters IRL.
(I met Molly for the first time on that road trip! Hurrah!)
Without that gift of time that I gave to myself? I truly don’t know if I’d be living a life of alignment today.
Everything started for me when Ken and I left our “real lives” and backpacked around the world for 10 months back in 2007.
The trip was my self prescribed solution to my Quarterlife Crisis. It seemed like escape from my world, escape from my job, escape from the traditional path, was the only thing that would help me reconnect to myself. I spent the first 3 months of my trip decompressing and the last 7 months designing my new life.
I wanted to share a little snipped from my journal towards the end of our trip —
“Today I took myself to a cafe in Hoi An, sat back and really appreciated the thinking I’ve been doing over the course of this trip. I’ve been exposed to so many new ideas and observed so many different ways of life. I have really and truly connected to my vision of success and am enthused about bringing Company X to fruition.
I am so excited about the changes I’m making in my own life to grow and push and seek joy. And incredibly excited to share these breakthroughs with other woman who feel that sense of quiet desperation.
There is so much I still need to learn, but I feel that my heart & my head are in the right place & ready to move forward.
I know I can’t give everyone the trip around the world, but I hope I can offer the right kind of experiences to help them really and truly connect with their truth.”
I’m hoping Summer Camp will be your week. Your life-changing moment. Your breakthrough to joy. Your jolt of clarity.
I can’t wait to hear you say,
“Oh yes, Camp’s when everything shifted for me.”
Time to take action!
Doors close tomorrow night at Midnight PST.
