What we're about

Hi, we are a tribe of women 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 2019.

What if there was a test that could help you identify your unique talents and show you exactly how to use them? What if that knowledge changed your trajectory and helped you lead a more fulfilling life, business, career and/or relationship? What if you learned WHY you chose the wrong career, relationship, etc OR confirmed you're on the right track! They say knowledge is power, but being truly self-aware is the ultimate power and can lead you directly to your purpose. DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN ALL ABOUT YOU! JOIN US FOR A TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE! The Gallup StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment will list your TOP FIVE STRENGTHS. (Must purchase and take the test separately before the workshop if you do not already know your top five strengths. See eventbrite for the $19.99 assessment. Must bring your test results to the workshop.) But what happens after the test? Strengths-based Human Potential Coach Bianca Capo, comes in. She created StrengthenHER™, a program to help women discover and grow their talents to strengths to self-actualize and purposefully lead, work, and live. By using a combination of her own talents, coaching experience and intensive training - Bianca will break down exactly how to best use your innate talent. Bianca brings decades of expertise and we're excited to partner with Capo Integrated Strengths, her Leadership and well-being company, on this workshop specifically tailored for THE SHE FLEW THE COOP COMMUNITY. In this interactive workshop, you'll learn: * Confirm your individual talents and what they mean * How to apply and strengthen those talents in your professional and personal relationships * What each of your talents need to make you feel fulfilled (YES! There is actually a formula to this!) * How you’ve been in OVERUSE of your talents for most of your life and how they’ve sabotaged you * How to self-lead with your talents to create the life you want and soar * How to release the patterns that hold you back and keep you in fear of flying the coop. COST: SFTC MEMBER EARLY BIRD : $75.00 (April 4th) SFTC MEMBER REGULAR : $85.00 SFTC NON-MEMBER : $100 Hear examples and stories of how other women are killin' it by applying their individual talents! Here's a personal story from me: "I met Bianca just a few months after She Flew the Coop from her career as a financial advisor to become a strengths coach. After taking the Strengths Assessment, I learned what my top five talents were. Suddenly, I was awakened to a new sense of self-awareness. I could understand clearly why I chose the journalism field and why I am so passionate about building the She Flew the Coop community. My strengths set me up perfectly to work in those areas. I also learned how to avoid overusing those strengths, and being aware of my "blindspots." Working with Bianca has truly been life-changing for me! I feel confident in who I am and what I have to offer. See you there!
