When the world tells you you shouldn’t, but your heart tells you you should, 


believe you can

achieve what matters

If you are an ambitious woman with big goals and even bigger talent,

but feel like you would have been better served by learning business acumen in school instead of geometry (I mean seriously, when’s the last time you fell back on your parallelogram skills), 

this mastermind was created for you.

Running a business requires an abundant amount of skills that few of us were ever taught. From business planning to goal execution, deciding what clients you want to serve to target marketing, from growing your confidence to asking for what you’re worth, sales, managing finances, hiring and delegating… these are all necessary skills to grow and scale your business.

But who has the time to learn them all? And how will you know if it’ll work?

The Honor Your Ambition mastermind will equip you with tangible, actionable learnings, and takeaways that you can test and implement in your business immediately.

you provide the ambition.
We'll provide the acumen.

With a collective 40+ years of executive experience training new business owners, thousands of clients coached, and multiple millions of dollars of revenue generated, Honor Your Ambition founders are sharing the secrets of their success

who is this for?

If any of the following statements apply to you, you're in the right place!

My business is profitable and growing, but it’s time to take it to the next level (like how do I double this thing?!?)

I love being independent, but I miss being able to brainstorm ideas, get feedback, and collaborate with others

I adore my friends, but would love to have a place where I’m surrounded by women who are as ambitious and career focused as I am

Most of my coaches, mentors, competitors, and counterparts are men… and their way of doing things doesn’t always resonate with me. I’d love to hear how successful women are honoring their ambition

I’m passionate about my work but want to avoid burnout and be able to serve more people

I work hard and I want to make sure I am working proactively in the direction of my goals 

I have the ambition, talent, and passion, but would benefit from growing my business acumen


who is this not for?

Please note that this mastermind is not designed for the following:

Women business owners that have already surpassed the $500k net income/ profit (not total revenue) mark… while we applaud your success, our goal is to support women who are still working to get there

Women who only want to sitback, observe and research. We are all about being prepared but we also know confidence is built through action. This will be a collaborative, engaged, and action oriented community

Like anything in life, you’ll get out what you put in, so make sure you can make most of the live discussions before you commit!

Honor your Ambition

what to expect

You will participate in a 12 week intentional mastermind with facilitated content + open discussion designed to honor your ambition and grow your business acumen.

Weekly 45 minute MASTERmind education sessions (12 total), facilitated by an HYA coach - click here for schedule

Plus four 90 minute masterMIND peer growth sessions, designed to share successes, solve problems, get input, and create action plans. Think of it as a business support group (bring your own wine)

The faith to see beyond your current reality and the framework to bring your vision to life

The $1,800 investment in YOURSELF will pay off in increased revenue, confidence, and expanded network (because when has investing in YOU ever NOT paid off?)

I have had the pleasure of working with this amazing group of experts and thought leaders for over half a decade and individually each of them are a force to be reckoned with. The fact that they have all banded together to bring an offer to market that combines their collective strengths is just too good to be true!!!

- Carrie D. 

I have been able to think bigger and gain a clear vision of what is possible both personally and professionally. I'm both encouraged and inspired to be bold in honoring my ambition!

- hannah a.

I've built systems and processes that have reduced my day to day stress of running my business and have both a quarterly vision and a long-term vision that excites me, and is based on what I want to achieve rather than what others want me to achieve.

- Sydney K.

It's women like you who inspire me every single day to show up as my highest self & never give up on my dreams.

Frequently Asked Questions

what happens after the mastermind?

Retreats, membership opportunities, continued growth groups, world domination (we’re ambitious women… the possibilities are endless)

Stay tuned!

What happens if I can’t attend a live session?

Please do your best to commit to the sessions… we know you’ll get far more when you attend live vs. listening to a recording. Having said that, we know ambitious women are busy women, so if you need to miss a session or two of the MASTERmind (weekly) sessions, you will have access to a recording. The four masterMIND peer growth sessions will not be recorded, so please plan accordingly.
