Course Preview


Mapping Past Maybe is a 4-week coaching course designed for women ready to own their future and live the life they were made for. It is a hybrid course, meaning it includes weekly live coaching sessions, recorded sessions to meet your schedule, and weekly assignments that we call "Rest Stops."


Rest Stops in this course are like rest stops on the highway - a place to pause, grab a beverage or snack, and breathe. As you work on your 'rest stops' in the course, I invite you to focus on YOU, your beautiful future, and what positive impacts your decision to live your best life will have on your mental and physical health as well as your family's.


We talk about overcoming the guilt of 'leaving a perfectly good job" to pursue what makes your heart smile while talking about the financial & logistical preparation that may be needed.


Every woman's situation is slightly different, but at the end of the day - we're all working toward the same thing - living our Very Best Life.


The course requires time and commitment to the process for you to gain the most benefit from it.


In this course, I teach you the six steps I used to retire early from my teaching career to run my five-year small business (then, side hustle) - now full-time and thriving.


To be sure, these were not prescribed steps. I didn't have a road map or process that someone shared with me. I did what seemed right - tried, learned, stumbled, and tried again until I figured things out. I wish I had had a road map! That's why I created one from the process I intuitively worked through. Now I'm sharing it with other women ready for their own change. :)


Deciding enough is enough and taking charge of your future is a BIG step, one that can lead to a journey that will be short or long. The choice is yours. Either way, it requires clarity, confidence, and willingness to work hard. Are you ready?


It's both exciting and terrifying when we finally commit to doing what our heart feels (and needs). As someone who took TEN years to make the leap, I take my commitment to helping 'map' futures seriously! I applaud you for considering your future.


During the four interactive course weeks, we focus on the first four steps in the process, helping you build your Life Map's foundation to move you past "Maybe" on a timeline that works for your life, family, and current situation.


After our four interactive course weeks, you'll have two additional months of coaching - monthly small group sessions via Zoom + 1:1 access, to help you continue into Steps 5 - 6 with support.
