Mastermind for Women- This is the group for you!

Online event

For most of my life I was a shy, timid wallflower. I hated living afraid & knew deep down there was a feisty woman in me but didn't know how to release her. Most everyone me labeled me as "quiet", "scared" or "shy". I hated it but when everyone tells you something you start to believe it. A few years ago I started to change. I discovered how to flip my fear & and have gone literally 180 degrees in the other direction. I'm now able to speak my mind, feel happy & free. Trust me, If I can do it you can too. I believe every woman deserves to live Confident, Fearless & Safe. However, most of us are not taught how to live that way. Many people think women are not assertive or confident because are timid, feel unworthy or lack self-esteem. Though we may have some self-limiting beliefs or feelings of lack, I know it is possible to break through them. Even if you consider yourself to be passive/scared/shy/unstable/a victim/unsure who you are- you have strength inside of you. What would you do if someone came up to you & started yelling or kicking your child (or your favorite pet or someone you love)? Would you sit back & let them? Of course not. You have the ultimate badass confidence inside of you- you just need to be shown how to exude it & attract the right people & situations to you. If you've read this far, don't overthink it... This is the space for you. Learn more about our weekly Mastermind here: https://www.daraconnolly.com/mastermind TESTIMONIALS from women in our group: "Dara is a master at what she does. She's not only passionate, she cares. In her Mastermind, I learned valuable lessons in assertiveness, overcoming timidity, & also powerful methods to alleviate dangerous situations. I have a life-time of negative input to overcome from bullying as a child to verbal abuse in the work place. With role-play & a touch of humor, she has impacted me strongly toward being a more confident person in all situations. It can do the same for you. I highly recommend her." - Sara Thomas "Dara Connolly will change your life. She's not afraid to deal with some of the tricky issues women go through. She gives excellent advice on how to stand up for what you believe & feel safe. I would recommend her Mastermind to every woman. She's very professional!" —Viveca Hubbard “After attending one workshop led by Dara, I came away with actionable tools to build a stronger, bolder presence in everyday interactions with both men and women. Dara has a keen awareness of meeting women right where they are and guiding them to increasing confidence (in aspects such as voice, presence, and self-defense)- better equipping them in today's world. She's relatable, engaging, and a master at making others feel welcome and supported. I would highly recommend her." —Shelley Lumm "Dara is a gem! Her passion for Empowerment & safety of women is evident both personally & professionally. She's an exceptional & inspirational leader for women. Her depth of knowledge, compassion and her deep desire to see you be strong physically, emotionally & spiritually is present in all of her work." -Lisa Fairchild “Dara Connolly is fantastic! I can’t explain the confidence she gave me & my daughters. Both college girls, facing the dating scene. When can you say “No?" ALWAYS! She gave them the tools not only to read different scenarios, but gain confidence and the skills for self-defense. Becoming self-sufficient and believing in yourself while staying safe! This program is so worth it!” -Tracy Wiley “My adult daughter attended your Mastermind last night & told me all about how much she learned from you. She discussed body language, how to verbalize firmly and what to say. It was amazing! The lessons you taught were invaluable. We are very grateful to you!" —Suzanne Sterling You are amazing & I look forward to meeting you in our group, Dara * Note this group is for Women only. Men who join will be blocked and removed.
