Lead Boldly.
Ignite Change.
Accelerate Success.

We are taking our show off the road and straight to your house (and we also have an escape plan). Join us for a virtual experience like no other. Where you focus on your needs and goals. Where you re-envision your destination, adjust your sails and move forward with confidence.

Welcome!

You want to do more than survive. You want to ACHIEVE, LEAD, SUCCEED, and have a life you love. You need a clear destination and a plan that you can follow even during these crazy times.

Year after year, our participants tell us this weekend changes their lives. 

They are happier, more successful, and more fulfilled. 

They have expanded their impact, landed the promotion, changed careers, launched businesses, reduced turnover, expanded their teams, formed new relationships, and dramatically increased their income.

It's your turn. Take your leadership to the next level. Embrace your power. Achieve the success you know you were born to have. Ignite the impact you want to have in the world, and that the world is waiting for.

And this year, you can join us from home. You can dress up or show up in pajamas. And join a group of like-minded women changing the world and loving their lives.

The event is virtual, but you might still need to get away! We have a special rate of $139 a night for you at the Hotel Palomar Dupont Circle (soon to be the Royal Sonesta Dupont Circle). Just email us for details.

Why Invest Now?

It’s clear 2020 has not been the year we expected. And 2021 will no doubt be different than we thought. But that doesn’t mean you throw your dreams and goals into the trash.  

No matter what year it is, your dreams are valuable and needed. By you and by your family, community, organization or even the world itself. 

DREAMS DON’T HAVE TO CHANGE BUT STRATEGIES DO

You have dreams you want to achieve. Some you may have had for years. They don’t have to disappear, but the strategies that worked in 2019 are not the strategies you need now.

And, after this unexpected year, you may have new and different dreams. 

Join us for a weekend to refresh your dreams and reinvent the strategies for achieving them.

Your Passport to Self-Care

At Don’t Await It Create It®, you get to make yourself your priority, to put YOU at the top of your to do list. That doesn’t just mean using your head to learn and plan, it also means learning how to consistently and mindfully care for yourself body and soul. Throughout the weekend, you’ll be guided on how to incorporate tangible tools for self-care into your daily routine... no matter how busy you are!

Your Permission Slip to Shine

It’s OK to want to be exceptional. And it’s OK to want to blend professional excellence with a thriving personal and family life. This weekend will provide you with both time for private reflection as well as personal consultations to reignite your dreams, re-energize your spirit and rediscover your mission.

Your Pathway to Success

Our hands-on training offers you an empathic, soulful approach through innovative strategic planning sessions. You will leave with clear and precise instructions on how to get where you want and need to go. Even if your goals and desires are fuzzy now, Don’t Await It, Create It® will bring you to a place of clarity!
