It’s Time for Lift-Off

As the speed of life increases, it’s easy to go through the motions and get swept up in the busyness, ultimately disconnecting from what really matters.

The result is often overwhelm and fatigue, confusion about where to focus, and lack of purpose.

But. When summer wraps up, a solution is here – just in time for the start of a new school year.

LifeShine® Lift-Off™: the women’s small-group leadership experience.

Here you’ll find purposeful guidance, structured focus, heartfelt support, and clear direction to write your next chapter by design…instead of by default.

Kicking-off Fall 2024 the right way.

I was skeptical initially given the differences in the majority of the group’s age and myself, but a circle of women sharing a common thread goes beyond age. We were all looking for the same things, and it was so enlightening and joyful to know that I wasn’t alone in this desire to explore what those things are. Michelle was masterful at leading the way for all of us. My biggest takeaway is that in all of this life, we are not alone. Our challenges may look different, but we are all really striving for the same things: belonging, having our place at the table and in our own lives, and living a life of meaning. That is super cool. This experience is for anyone who wants a safe place to explore their next chapter. You get the expertise of one of the most caring and informed coaches, as well as the insights from other women who are also searching for that next best thing.

I was in a place in my life where I felt caught between my past and my future. This group came at just the right time for me! To work together with other women who were also in a transitional place in their life provided just the sort of courage I needed to push through tough barriers. Michelle is truly a gifted life coach. Her innate ability to assist in the process of self-discovery and growth is clear. She creates gentle spaces for magic to happen individually as well as in a group setting. The fact that everyone in the group was lovely, kind, and supportive was the icing on the cake. The most amazing thing to me was being able to witness others, and have others witness me, during this journey. It was truly an exercise in beginning with the end in mind. Not focusing on the ‘how’, but the end result. I still smile when I think about where we all ended up.

After two fantastic coaching engagements with Michelle through the years, she encouraged me to participate in this new group-based experience. That’s when I got the opportunity to meet four wonderful women who, like myself, were interested in continually growing and improving; four women who I would otherwise never have crossed paths with. Although strangers, these women provided wisdom and inspiration through the stories and struggles they shared, and they allowed me to authentically share my own challenges with no element of judgement or criticism. I felt like I could be my authentic self and speak freely with this group of ladies who provided a sounding board for how to move forward with my next chapter. With Michelle guiding us all, I felt less alone on my path, and I so enjoyed getting to know the other participants. I have such an appreciation for who they are, along with the unique perspectives they each brought to the group.
