How to Lead Circle:

Step into your feminine leadership and start your first circle in 2018!

Imagine breaking through the fears of feeling incompetent to lead circle and instead feeling confident, worthy and powerful so you naturally attract women to your circle with ease.

Imagine empowering yourself by becoming fluent in the structure, facilitation skills, and language of circle.

Imagine surrounding yourself with sisters, and mentors celebrating your brilliance and cheering you on.

Imagine following a step-by-step journey into the facilitator seat and feeling like you are fulfilling on your dream of becoming a feminine leader.

You can find it all in our 12-week How to Lead Circle Program.

How to Lead Circle is, according to past participants, the best, most integrated and holistic program out there to learn how to effective start and lead a women’s circle.

In fact, more than 75% of the women who graduated completed their first circle before the end of the program! Talk about effective!

As Roe said: “Taking this course was the best move I made in 2016. Tanya thought of everything you need to know to run a successful circle. Within 1 month, I added circles to my 6 week coaching program and 10 women signed up for a December start! I earned nearly $4000 before finishing the course. More important than the money is I love hosting circles and the transformation for the attendees has been amazing.”

(Yes, I am completely committed to you MAKING MONEY while leading circles!)

Our next class starts March 19. Will you join us?
