Next Meetup

Special Mental Health Edition: We're talking about depression, anxiety & suicide
Hi! September is Suicide Prevention Month and we're talking about mental health! We're flying the coop and getting out of our comfort zone to talk about an issue often kept secret because of stigmas. Have you ever felt depressed, anxious, weary, overwhelmed, alone, etc? Or, do you have a loved one who is dealing with mental health issues and want to better understand it and know more about how to help? We're bringing in a panel to talk about suicide and depression. We're going back to our "talk show" format, and you're the audience! You'll hear stories of people who have survived a suicide attempt and/or known someone who has committed suicide. We will share openly about how this can affect us, and how to cope. The bottom line: we're talking openly. Stay tuned for updates on panelists. This will be a closed meetup to meetup members only with limited seating (25) to keep it intimate. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

What we're about

Hi, we are a tribe of women (men welcome too) who understand that life is a journey. We are in various phases of "flying the coop" and leaving our comfort zone to pursue our dreams and goals. Some of us have already leaped, others are thinking about it and some of us just want to connect and support other women who've done so. Together we are stronger.

We share our unique stories and the lessons we've learned from quitting our 9-5, starting a business, moving across the country, traveling, self-discovery or leaving a broken relationship, etc. ...because we want to inspire each other and learn new tools for our own journey. Join US!

This group was started by Sarah Batista, a former TV reporter who took a leap to launch her own film production company, Stories to Inspire. "She Flew the Coop" is also the title of her independent documentary which gives a behind the scenes look of her journey and the amazing women she meets along the way. The film is set to release in 2018.
