Want to be the first to know when I open up registration for the next Elevate Mastermind?
ELEVATE MASTERMIND is a yearlong journey for 14 ambitious, heart-centered, free-spirited, big-dreaming women who will make 2014 the most incredible year of their life.
IMAGINE WHAT YOU CAN DO
with a dedicated tribe of like-minded women,
a fearless leader who is hell bent on your success,
12 months of inspired accountability, and a boatload of loving support.
It’s the year to activate your dreams. To celebrate your growth.
THIS JOURNEY IS FOR YOU IF…
- You are committed to putting it all out there: your desires, your fears and your challenges.
- You are ready to be honest with yourself about what is and isn’t working in your life.
- You’re craving camaraderie — women who get you and lovingly challenge you.
- You’re incredibly thrilled to have Molly on your team for an entire year. (Like really, really excited.)
- You’re willing to work hard to get what you want.
- You believe that you are worthy of a joyful, successful, meaningful life.
THIS JOURNEY IS NOT FOR YOU IF…
- You’re not willing to commit to yourself and your growth for an entire year.
- You don’t want to participate in group retreats, group calls and group accountability.
- You’re not willing to take ownership of your actions.
- You consider yourself a pessimist and believe life will always be a struggle.
- You’re not able to make a significant financial investment in yourself.
THIS IS THE YEAR
to understand that everything you are truly hungry for is within your reach,
to take a chance on your dreams, and to commit to your happiness.
IF YOU’RE CRAVING
(I’ve totally got your back.)
For the 14 of you brave enough to act on your hunch, apply for this group, and get accepted into Elevate Mastermind? I’m honored and extraordinarily excited to be part of your year.
“If a stranger asked me if they should apply for ELEVATE, I’d say hells to the yeah, mother effer! I pretty much dare someone to set a goal and not meet it during a year of ELEVATE. It’s magical!” Annie, Elevate 2013
“Elevate is for you if you are truly, madly, deeply committed to moving forward in your life and you’re ready to put your whole self into seeing change through.” Hillary, Elevate 2013
We will be starting our adventure together with a three day retreat at Calliote Canyon outside of Ojai, California. You’ll pow wow as a group for workshop time and having plenty of solo time to recharge and reflect. I’ll be there to lead the weekend and get to know each of you IRL. We’ll wine and dine, dream and scheme, meditate, sauna, hike and write our cute little butts off. There may be some secret ceremonies. There will definitely be some surprises.
YOU WILL BE VISIONING YOUR YEAR, creating your action plans, and enjoying some incredible time to bond, write, relax, and nourish yourself.
(And we’ll have a fabulous time of course! We’ll be doing some serious soul work, but we won’t be taking ourselves too seriously…)
January 23-26, 2014.
Mark your calendars now.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH YOUR INCREDIBLE YEAR?
What external measures will be visible to all?
Will you get in the best shape of your life, start your business, or become the mom you want to be for your child? Will you fall in love, choose a healthy relationship, or tackle that *big* goal on your life list? Will you go after your promotion, become a burlesque dancer, move out of the country, or give up drinking? Will you write your novel, start your passion project, or get in to the PhD program of your dreams?
It’s all possible. Get on board, lovely.
And what internal changes will occur?
Will you learn how to savor the beauty of each day? Will gratitude be a daily practice? Will you know how to stop a downward mind spiral, ask yourself the hard questions with grace, or truly honor your values? Will you rewrite some outdated stories? Will you play bigger with your talents, love your body, or embrace uncertainty? Will you know how to stand up for yourself, ask for what you need, or forgive old wounds?
Our minds are interesting creatures. We’ve got to know, accept, and work with their quirks.
Take a minute here, GORGEOUS.
Sit back, close your eyes, and picture YOURSELF a year from now.
Imagine what it would feel like to be sitting here one year from now, knowing you didn’t make excuses to put off your personal work. How would you feel reveling in the fact that you spent quality soul time getting clear on your highest priorities, creating fiercely ambitious yet conquerable action plans, and then truly activating your desires? Imagine creating magic in your life one day at a time — one hurdle, one scary step, one brave declaration, one clean cut, one new habit — at a time.
Imagine loving the life you live and living the life you love.
It would feel incredible, wouldn’t it?
That is what I want for you, plain and simple.
And I don’t want you to feel like you have to do it alone…
There is something immensely comforting knowing you have a year of support to make it happen, no?
I’m talking about AN ENTIRE YEAR
of excitement, hard questions, unconditional encouragement,
and calling out of bullshit when you start getting in your own way.
How would it feel knowing that you have the resources, connections, vision and cheerleading of 14 other women who understand that deep craving to create a beautiful life? How would it feel knowing that I wasn’t going to let you get left behind? How would it feel to know that you were never alone in this year of incredible growth, incredible love and incredible satisfaction?
That’s why Elevate Mastermind is a yearlong program — I want to continue the connections for an entire year. I want you to remain dedicated to your dreams for an entire year. And I want you to have an entire year of support to integrate new habits, to take action and make changes in a way that works for you and your real life.
The 2014 ELEVATE MASTERMIND includes
the January RETREAT at Calliote Canyon,
the PRIVATE COACHING with Molly,
the GROUP of 14 Soul Sisters,
the CELEBRATION weekend,
and the TREATS.
January 23rd -26th 2014 at Calliote Canyon in Ojai, California.
Spend a transformative, nourishing 3-day weekend with your Elevate Tribe. From Thursday’s dinner to Sunday’s breakfast, your accommodation, workshops, classes, meals, wine and special surprises are all covered. You simply get here — I’ll take delightful care of you as we dive deeply into your desires, action planning, self-love skills and mindfulness practices.
THE PRIVATE COACHING WITH MOLLY
Hot seat time! You’ll schedule one-on-one time with me to dig deep. Illuminating questions, wholehearted listening, and soulful strategies for life and work — personalized elevation just for you.
EXPLORATION: We’ll have monthly coaching sessions January through April to begin our work together by assessing where you are, where you’d like to be, the blocks in your way (external or internal), and how to bridge the gap. 4 intense months with me will provide loads of new insight, breakthroughs and self knowledge.
INTEGRATION: We’ll break from one-on-one sessions from May through August for a summer of integration — you’ll practice your new tools, mindsets, and action planning on your own. And have a blast on all your travels, weddings, picnics and general summer shenanigans of course!
COMMITMENT: We will return to our monthly one-on-one time September through December to address challenges, deeper yearnings and perhaps set new goals or dreams because so many of you will already have accomplished what you set out to elevate in your life.
In addition to our scheduled one-on-one time, you’ll get 3 “emergency” calls — especially useful for big decisions, mini meltdowns, role-playing for hard conversations (asking for a raise, breaking up with the deadbeat, explaining to your father that you’re moving to Costa Rica), business/website/product launches, or giving direct feedback on your desired progress.
An inspiring monthly call to report progress, celebrate wins and ask for help when you need it. There will be a bit of teaching from me and a bit of sharing from each of you. I want to do everything in my power to make sure you are truly moving forward on your goals (whether they be external or internal) with the support of the group.
4 Virtual 3-hour Live Weekend Retreats (end of March, May, July, September) for committed time and space to check in with your action plans and progress. We’ll gather online to jam on our new group theme (could be topics like authenticity, self-compassion, focus or greatness), break apart to do our assessment and own action planning work, and regroup online to share our personal plans and intentions. Talk about accountability and magical motivation!
One year’s worth of access to a private online forum for sharing resources, networks and strategies. Easy access to your mastermind sistas’ for support, camaraderie, constructive feedback, and glowing enthusiasm.
December 4th – 7th 2014 in Seattle, Washington
We’ve worked and laughed and cried our way through an entire year. Strangers have become soul sisters. You’ve been transformed. We need to celebrate! For this optional 3-day weekend, we’ll be renting a gorgeous Seattle home and sharing meals as revisit the highlights of the year.
I imagine wine, snuggling, live “Holiday Council” work, a trip downtown to enjoy the holiday lights, and amazing coffee shop sipping. Your accommodations for all three nights, a hydrotherapy spa evening, and other surprises will be covered.
Additional trainings and calls with my League of Awesome Ladies. We’ll put together a wishlist of women in January and I’ll do my best to get them on the phone for you! I’ve got connections, yo.
Access to any current or upcoming Stratejoy Course or Council for additional learning — The Joy Equation, The Fierce Love Course, Joy Juice Prompts, The Holiday Council, The Willpower Council, and anything else I create in 2014!
Surprises. Like in the mail. ‘Nuff said.

PRAISE FOR ELEVATE + MOLLY
I committed to ELEVATE because I knew this was my year to shine! But only if I really invested in myself and getting the support, guidance and community I craved.
Kyla, Winnipeg, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because I knew I needed support in making big changes in my life. As I got to know everyone, I was inspired and comforted by the thought that I was truly not “in this alone.” And as the year progressed, my relationship with Molly and the support from the other women made all the difference. I’ve felt so much unconditional love throughout this experience.
A year ago, I lived in a different state, had a different job, and hadn’t gone on a date in over 2 years. I now live across the country, I got a new fellowship, and I have three dates lined up this week. Striding forward into 2014 with a year full of coaching, group love, and personal growth under my belt, I’m know I can keep the progress going (even though I’m going to miss Molly so much!)
If a gal pal asked me how my life has changed through Elevate, I’d say, “It’s changed in every single way possible because of who I’ve met, the work I’ve done, the support I’ve had, and the mirror I’ve been holding up to my soul.”
Diana, Philadelphia, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because I knew I would go farther with this group of amazing women than I could on my own. After the January Retreat, I felt empowered. I had a clear path towards the year that I wanted, and I felt that getting what I wanted was within my reach.
In the past year, I completed grad school on my own terms, ran a half marathon, moved across the country, got a job I’m loving, got a new, healthier perspective on dating through a not-so-fun situation, and made 13 new incredible friends I know will have my back forever. I might have been able to do a fraction of this on my own, but I definitely do not think I could have pushed myself as far or changed my perspective on so many things in my life without being a part of Elevate this year.
As I think about my year with Molly coming to a close, I’m wishing it could go on forever! I will miss my calls with Molly a ridiculous amount and don’t quite know what I’m go without her. I do know that I am walking away with so many tools and perspectives that I can use myself, so although I’ll miss Molly, I know I’ll be good on my own.
Elevate has helped me be more confident, more sure of my path in life, and more sure that the life I want is most definitely within my reach. In addition to my own stories, it was been wonderful to get to witness and celebrate the journey of these other amazing women throughout the year. Having them to cheer me on when things got rough or to inspire me through their own courage and gutsiness has been one of the biggest blessings of this program.
Amanda B, Los Angeles, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because even thinking about signing up filled me with more hope for my future than anything had in years. That alone was a lead I had to follow.
After the January Retreat, I felt connected to a deep inner sense of calm, certainty, and hope. I felt like I’d met some of the most wonderful people in the world and that I’d been spoiled by the love and support of these people I’d only just met. I felt so excited to be setting out on an adventure with this group for a whole year! And I felt so, so happy and grateful to have met Molly!
I’m incredibly grateful I was able to gather the time, the money and the determination to take this leap of faith in myself and in Molly. I honestly don’t know how I’d have made it to where I am now without this year of Elevate. I’ve learned to get into the process of change and let go of my expected outcome. I’ve learned that it’s in the trenches of change where you meet like-minded spirits, where you release everything you don’t truly need to take with you, and where you develop the strength you need to get where you need to go.
Hillary, Toronto, Elevate 2013
I committed to Elevate because I knew it would be amazing. So much synchronicity brought me back into the Stratejoy orbit at precisely the right moment and there was no way I could pass up the opportunity. I was looking for an experience that would allow me to grow and develop as a woman and allow me to make some connections with other like-minded women.
Elevate offers that and then Molly sweetens the deal with the January retreat, the monthly calls/virtual retreats, random google hangouts, and a full year of coaching, support and girlfriend bonding. The personal growth I have experienced and the friendships I have made have changed my life forever. I am not even remotely the same woman I was at the start of Elevate. I’m beyond grateful that I took a leap of faith and became one of the trail-blazing women in the first ever Elevate Mastermind.
Within this group of women, I felt like I had finally found my people. I felt connected, loved, supported and accepted for ME. As if that wasn’t enough, the retreat itself was a magical time filled with all the best parts of an adult sleepover, plus a healthy dose of mind/body/soul nourishing. There are secret, magical moments that I can never fully describe and actually do them justice. I feel blessed to have shared those moments with 14 of the most incredible women I’ve ever known.
The most impactful piece of Elevate has been Molly. Without her beautiful spirit and insightful guidance, I would not have grown as much as I have. Knowing she was there supporting me, believing in me, and challenging me made all the difference. There is no doubt in my mind that I will work with her again, but I am a little sad to leave the magic of Elevate behind and pass the torch to a new group of women.
As this year draws to a close, I feel like I know myself better than I ever have. I’m more in touch with my own desires and the path I want my life to head in. I’ve mastered the art of self-care and am infinitely more self-compassionate. With the support of my Elevate sisters, I know I can continue to piece together the life of my dreams. Being a part of Elevate has given me the confidence to keep chasing those big dreams and turn them reality.
Nicole, middle of Illinois, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because I wasn’t happy with my life and I wanted to make a change now, the year I was turning 30, to become a more authentic version of myself. To feel less like life was ruling me, and more like I was taking control of my own future. The way I was feeling before Elevate was permeating every facet of my life – job, family, friendships, relationships. I didn’t want to do anything and I was angry at the fact that I wasn’t where I thought I should be.
After meeting my 13 long lost sisters, I knew would have trusted each of them with my life,and that’s kind of what I did. I needed their help to get me through the year, and they needed me. After the Retreat, I knew that I could count on them always.
A year later, I can truly say I am so at peace with where I’m at now.
A year ago I was stressed about what was going to happen next, what the future held. Now, I can be present and grateful for the day in front of me instead of getting so wrapped up in the fear of the unknown that I can’t accomplish the things I really, really want. After this year I’m feeling so confident, so alive, so challenged to constantly keep growing and evolving.
I think the most important thing that Elevate taught me is how to maintain control over my own life and be the captain of my own ship! I truly feel like anything is possible for me.
I’m so very thankful for the time I shared with Molly and happy that I can release her into the wild so that she can help other women change their lives! I feel confidant that I am at a place where I know I can do all of these things I have learned on my own.
Meghan, Dallas, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because for the first time in a really long time I had concrete goals that I really wanted to meet. I thought, man, if I could reach those goals in one year, it truly would be the best year ever. And wouldn’t you know… I hit all three goals three months before the year was over!
After the January Retreat, I felt like I could do anything!!! I felt like I was going home with 13 new sisters who were part of a new and incredible support system. The amount of love, trust and inspiration that was created and shared at the retreat was more than I could have imagined and definitely the highlight of the Elevate experience. I’m pretty anti-retreat, so I was a bit trepidatious about the whole thing–but it was absolutely amazing! I think I cried every day that first week I was home because I missed everyone so much.
When I think back to where I was a year ago, it’s crazy that I have done everything I set out to do! I’m a mama to a beautiful baby girl, I started my coaching biz and quit my day job an attorney.
I will never be the same because I’ve learned so much about myself this year, especially about goal-setting. I learned that I tend to shy away from setting goals because I’m afraid of failing. But when I don’t set goals, I seldom get what I want. Now that I’ve met many tiny goals on the way to reaching my big goals for the ELEVATE year, I know how I work best and how to set and meet goals going forward.
Annie, Philadelphia, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because I’d always been successful at things, but I wasn’t necessarily happy.
It took lots of digging and soul work to recognize that it wasn’t the “things” I’d done or owned that brought me satisfaction or that my heart really craved. Being able to check-in with Molly, knowing I’d have somebody lovingly pushing me and cheering loudly for me, allowed me to do the inner work necessary to really get to know myself. I am now able to work through barriers holding me back and continue to build my own authentic, rich life that feels truly successful and fulfilling to me.
I have no doubt that I’ll look back on 2013 and the year I spent coaching with Molly as both a milestone and a turning point in my life.
Amanda D, Houston, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because I felt like I was passively drifting through life. I had BIG goals but was not making progress on any of them. I craved accountability, structure, a supportive community and of course a big dose of Stratejoy magic that only Molly could provide! When the ELEVATE email arrived in my inbox I felt like Molly was speaking directly to me.
The most amazing part has been the close-knit community we created. As I got to know my Elevate girls, I became aware that I had found my people. From the first emails in October to in-person bonding at the retreat (sleepovers, dance parties, skinny dipping champagne, oh my!) to the countless messages/emails/ridiculous
I’m filled with gratitude for having Molly in my inner circle over the last year. She is like a wise older sister. She motivated me to go after the goals that aligned with my truest values. She pushed me to my edges and dared me to go just a little bit farther and when needed she would be there with the biggest of virtual hugs!
Victoria, Ottawa, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because I wished that my life was full of strong women, authentic connections, laughter and adventure.
I ran across this quote the other day and thought – this is me!
“You know what’s really, powerfully sexy? A sense of humor. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Hips to grab on to. Openness. Confidence. Humility. Appetite. Intuition. … Smart-ass comebacks. Presence. A quick wit. Dirty jokes told by an innocent-looking lady. … A woman who realizes how beautiful she is.” – Courtney E. Martin
A year ago I never would have said I was powerfully sexy. I would have only wished that I felt powerfully sexy. Today – almost a year into Elevate – I know I am powerfully sexy, not because I lost 10 lbs or was perfect in my morning ritual this year, but through Elevate I got comfortable being myself – loving myself, appreciating my own beauty and humor and with the investment, valuing myself.
I’m a planner, so naturally, I worried at the beginning about what would happen when it’s over. Would I need this kind of intense support forever? I joined Elevate in part because I wanted to achieve and do and go! Go! GO! Have my best year yet! Life is messy and yes, there was achievement, going and doing, but with Elevate and Molly as the guide, the achievement came out of being and will continue long after this year is over.
Molly has a gift for drawing together beautiful women, building community (at the retreat and beyond), connecting with each of us and allowing the space for us to develop relationships with each other. I leapt with Molly and the other women into this adventure of Elevate and like everything else worth doing, I got out what I put in and I will never regret investing in my life – the work I’ve done with Molly this year, the friendships I’ve nurtured and the life I built.
Erin, Boulder, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because I felt stuck. I was in a job rut, a life rut, and just kind of gliding through life feeling unsatisfied. I had worked with Molly before on Find Your Passion Work and loved the experience, but I knew I needed more. I wasn’t in a crisis but I was in need of some truly deep introspection and committed time to work on myself and reconnect with who I’ve always been.
Through the Elevate programming, Molly’s coaching, and support of my Elevate sisters, I’ve asked myself questions I never even thought of before and been strong enough to stand up for myself in a big way, and make big strides in my life. The thing is, I’m a changed person, but not because I’m a different person…because I’ve learned new ways to look at all aspects of my life and be honest about it all.
The Elevate experience has opened up so many possibilities in my life, and though I may not know what the next steps are, I’m in a much more positive and stronger mindset to make the best of anything the future holds. Not to mention how awesome it feels to have a tribe of lifelong sisters!
I’m forever thankful for the experience of Elevate and the new Elevate family that I have.
Stephanie, Austin, Elevate 2013
I committed to ELEVATE because I needed some real change in my life, and I had no idea how to make it happen. In the 8 months before I applied, I lost several loved ones, earned a promotion, cancelled my engagement, found out my former fiance was never in love with me, moved, met a bunch of new people, traveled, drank too much, and lost my best friend in the world — my Grandma. I was stalled. I was out of steam. I needed some help to get me moving again.
Elevate appealed to me because I’d worked with Molly before and I knew it would be exactly the hard work and honest guidance that I was so desiring.
After the January Retreat, I felt energized, connected with other courageous girls, ready to get to work, and a little nervous about how all of it was going to pan out. Going from the magic of the January Retreat (yoga, trees, tea, laughter, wine, and true companionship!) back to real life (fresh off a bad breakup, gaining weight, struggling at work) was really hard, but it helped me to identify where I needed to work. I used that lesson over and over throughout the year to identify things that made me uncomfortable or unhappy and put extra work into understanding and changing them.
When I think back to where I was a year ago, it’s crazy that so much has changed! It’s strange to say, but it’s true: people who knew me before Elevate have seen the difference in my demeanor, in my writing, in my actions, in our relationships. Friends have written long emails to say how happy they are for my own very real, very visible happiness, and sometimes even to ask advice and guidance. I can’t pinpoint specifically when it happened, but sometime this year I gained the confidence to stand on my own two feet, and the knowledge of how do it with kindness and poise.
I feel stronger and more confident than I ever have before, and more importantly, I feel incredibly self-aware. I understand my emotions and needs better, and I’m able to discover the whys that define what I do.
Elevate changed me. Elevate gave me sisters, for the first time in my life. Elevate reminded me, gently sometimes and with a punch at other times, that I am a real, genuine, good, strong woman. Elevate taught me how to tap into all of the beauty and goodness within, and allowed me to explore how I can share that with the world. Elevate made me reevaluate and really think about a lot of aspects of my life. Elevate helped me to find the confidence to talk about the life I really want to be living, stripped away from the needs and pressures of outside sources, and what I need to do to get there.
I truly believe that I wouldn’t be where I am today — emotionally, romantically, mentally, physically — without Elevate.
Lauren, Arlington, Elevate 2013
And move forward I have. I have accomplished so many of my goals, and discovered my real desires. I got to the point where I can proudly say, on most days, that — right now, in this very moment, I feel like everything is coming together, that I am exactly where I need to be, that the pieces are falling into place, and that I am surrounded and cradled by people who love me and want to see me succeed. My heart feels full and I am grateful.
Change happens over a long period of time, little by little. Looking over my journal entries from December and January, I can see just how far I have come. Molly and my Elevate sisters are here to witness the changes and celebrate the growth along the way.
I will never be the same because of this year!
Katherine, Montreal, Elevate 2013
I created Elevate Mastermind because after being in business for 5 years, I have amazing clients and Tribe sisters who are ready for the next step.
You’re not in crisis anymore. You have an amazing sense of who you are and a growing sense of what you want. You understand that in order to truly shine, your inside attitudes and desires need to be in alignment with your outside actions.
What you lack is the like-minded company with whom you can be utterly honest. You lack long-term high-level support with a mentor dedicated to your success. And perhaps you lack a bit of motivation to keep doing the work, day after day, when the results aren’t immediately clear. Those are the problems I’m solving by creating this group.
This is not a business mastermind, concentrating on profit and marketing. This is not a church circle, book club, networking conference or manifestation retreat.
Elevate Mastermind is a group of women who understand the quest to find balance in ambition and acceptance, to find strength in our individuality and to find joy in the process.
It will be made up of women who come from all walks of life — some in business for themselves, some with corporate jobs, some in the process of huge passion projects, some going back to school, some partnered, some single, some mamas — from Houston to Toronto, Raleigh to Vancouver, San Diego to Philadelphia. All are committed to dreaming, creating, and receiving the most incredible year ever.
