March 28-29, 2017 Seattle, WA (formerly the CONNECT Retreat)
Are you an entrepreneur ready to ignite your next level leadership in your business?
Would you like to tap in to the courage to make the badass moves that you know deep down are right for you?
Would you like to do it in a community of like-minded leaders who “go there” like you do? (i.e. seek truth)
Our world is changing, and so is the online marketing industry and ‘personal growth space.’ As an intuitive leader you can feel it. You know you must shift too – not just to ‘keep up,’ but to be one of the people who is setting the direction for where we go next.
Badass Leaders Align is a 2-day experiential live retreat designed to support you as you tune in to the personal shifts you know you must make to lead your business into the future.
Badass = Courage to make decisions that align with who you are, often from faith and divine guidance, without knowing exactly how they will play out.
This retreat is designed for the leader committed to continually raising her (or his) own consciousness and that of the planet, with business as a pathway for growth and service. It is perfect for you if you have recently begun feeling into the form your work needs to take in the future, and you’d like a space, and an energy, from which to make the vision clear. You will leave having activated a whole new energy in your business, and knowing your first few steps to make it real.
Some will invent a whole new business model, others will embody the slight shift that creates more flow, ease, and fun in your already awesome world. No magic marketing formula, simply the knowing of your soul.
At Badass Leaders Align you will…
- Allow the space for you to connect with your soul’s longings and the role you are meant to play as a leader in today’s society.
- Fine-tune your messaging, marketing, business model, or life design by getting yourself into this environment for truth.
- Lighten up, seeing just how to share your work in the world in a way that FEELS REALLY GOOD to you, and everyone knows it!
- Get creative with Liz Gilbert, badass author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic, in a private workshop designed to help you tune into the part of you that wants to be heard.
- Connect with promotional partners who are willing to work authentically, like you, and find creative ways to share each other’s work that innovates the tired launch process.
- Experience an unprecedented level of camaraderie with other leaders who are just as badass as you are!
- Have loads of fun playing with your divine self-expression!
Badass Leaders Align March 28-29, 2017 (formerly the CONNECT Retreat)
Our curriculum is not a barrage of information, but rather a carefully crafted experience designed to guide you to breakthrough results in the following three areas:
We are never without clarity – our authentic marketing message is always clear deep within. We often lack courage. This manifests as confusion. At Badass Leaders Align, we’ll tap into the courage to bring your message forward with all of the fierceness that is in your heart. Be 100% you in all your creative glory in service of your mission. Once you experience this freedom, you will never go back.
Gone are the days of muscling through and going it alone. Badass Leaders Align is designed to provide you a breakthrough in trust, intimacy, asking and receiving. In this energy, community/ connection/ collaboration is a given. Imagine the impact on your clients when true community is the norm. And on the world!
Ever been frustrated that people you care about are spending time on conversations that don’t matter? At Badass Leaders Align we will explore what it takes to create a NEW conversation for what’s possible, such that the people around you would much rather speak YOUR language! You’ll craft a specific statement that is your guidepost for the conversation worthy of your life.

Power and Privilege: Where Your Personal Truth Meets Our Collective Truth
What lives in our minds is a mirror of what lives in our society. As we look deep into our own mirrors to find, know, and name the truth, we MUST also look deep into the social and cultural mirror, as we are not separate from the whole. In this session we will look courageously at the paradigm of white power and privilege. The consciousness that has you asking yourself, “Am I good or worthy enough to do this?” has actually contributed to our current societal reality. We will explore the way self-doubt, judgment and comparison have kept us blind to our privileges (specifically white privilege for most of us), and perpetuated our own oppression and that of others. To practice magic is to practice the “art of changing consciousness at will.” As we examine our own consciousness through the mirror of society we can choose to practice magic through Transformational Activism and shift the consciousness of ourselves, our society and beyond. Sam Wallen is the Founder of Write In Power, which is a growing movement of conscious people who commit to writing into the core wounds and brilliance of their lives in order to claim their fundamental value, live in abiding self-trust, AND create a book!
Cordelia Francesca Brabbs
From Good Girl to Wild Woman: Reframe your “sins” into superpowers to create the life you want
What if you could bring ALL parts of yourself into your business so you can unleash your soul magic? Cordelia believes that women can heal the lifetimes of core guilt and shame that stops them from being as powerful and magical as they know they are (but are afraid of being). By embracing your darkness, your shadows, your messy, raw, beautiful parts – rather than feeling you have to be pure and sweet and perfect in order to be spiritual – you will free yourself to create the pleasure and prosperity you really want. If you’ve experienced the shame that comes up for spiritual women about their dreams and desires – be it for wealth, sex or luxury – you won’t want to miss this dynamic session. Cordelia Francesca Brabbs is a spiritual teacher and mentor for entrepreneurial women who want to see what’s really possible when they start breaking the rules of the old paradigms, and start living from their magic.
The Art of Faith in Business: How to cultivate faith to stay tuned in to your purpose as you grow
All conscious entrepreneurs have faith in something. Sometimes it’s God or Spirit or the Universe. Sometimes it’s faith in fear, scarcity, lack, or overwhelm. Or it’s faith in someone else’s magic business formula or ideas for your business. The more conscious you are, the more important it is to utilize faith to grow your business – even more-so than strategy and planning! To grow exponentially, you must be able to have faith in what you cannot yet see in your business. Without faith, you will stay stuck in indecision and worrying about the “HOW” of achieving your goals. In this workshop we’ll explore how to cultivate our faith in the right direction and stay in touch with our real purpose and desire. Misdirected faith can cause sneaky forms of resistance and playing small. We’ll explore why we need ALL of who we are to propel our business forward – both the light and shadow sides. We will dive in to what faith really is, how to blast through resistance, work with our light & shadows sides, cultivate desire and step into our greatness. Emma Churchman is a spiritual director for conscious business. She’s broken all the rules to create her succes, and she loves supporting you to move into your greatest soul expression and an abundant business!

Discover Your Entrepreneurial EDGE: Create a life of more ease, joy and impact
96-98% of all our decisions are made from our subconscious mind. When we’re not aware of what’s running us, those things have a huge impact on the outcomes we create. As human beings we are trained (often from a very early age) to do anything at all to avoid looking in the places that feel the most uncomfortable to us – the feelings and emotions that make us squirm. The truth is, it is exactly those same places that hold the key to our deepest transformation – and the work we are here to do in the world. I call this finding your ‘Entrepreneurial EDGE’. During this talk, we will explore together how to step up and own your EDGE and why facing the things you run away from holds the key to immediate transformation in your life and business – and the impact you are here to make in the world. Kate Gerry helps business owners tap in to their best, most creative work, by structuring their business and life in a way that creates so much abundant space their ideas can’t help but sprout and grow.
Understanding Fear: The Key to Manifest Your Soul Purpose Like a Master
In this interactive workshop, Renee will offer crystal clarity around what fear is, its impact on your personal life and on all of your current and future clients or students that you have sacred contracts with. Learn to navigate your fears as you pursue your Soul purpose as a sacred business. Seeing fear for what it is and consistently working through it not only offers new experiences, growth and expansion but self-mastery. Mastering fear is part of the self-ascension journey where you practice the dance between fear and love that is at the core of this 3D hologram we live in. See what is holding you back from going “all-in” with your Soul purpose and leave feeling empowered to walk through those fears. Renee Li helps new and aspiring spiritual teachers achieve Soul purpose success. When a new wave (a new generation) of spiritual teachers and leaders come into their full power, the energy on Earth will shift and help more and more individuals heal, evolve spiritually and ultimately ascend into their self-mastery. Ushering this new wave is Renee’s business and Soul Purpose.
Claim Your Magic: Embrace the Courage to BE You and Live Your Vision
With all of the healing that self-aware people do, why aren’t things changing? What if we could choose to change rather than healing something that is “broken”? Do we really have to breakdown to breakthrough? With a blend of humor, truth bombs, and practical tools, Angella will guide you on how to:
- Receive more ease and abundance from the universe, even through surprising ways including increasing your willingness to receive judgment.
- End the epidemic of self-judgment and be fully aligned with your inner knowing.
- Stop talking about creating change and actually create change on a molecular level, which changes your physical reality.
- Find the courage to be who you are without apology.

Shake up Your Success: Find your more & (re)design your business to live the life you crave
The definition of success is changing for many people this year, and if you are feeling just a little bit discontent with what you’ve created, it makes sense. It’s probably because success for you looks and feels different than it does for other people, and different from when you started achieving your success. It’s changing with the times. This is great news! It means you’re a Badass Leader ready to (re)define success to lead, love and live in a new way. But often we don’t give ourselves the time or space to tune in to what really works for us now and wants to unfold next. That’s what we’ll being co-creating in this break out session.

WHY BADASS LEADERS ALIGN IS UNIQUE
In addition to the safe space of transformation, the unparalleled tribe, and the expertly crafted agenda from someone who has truly been there, there are a few other reasons you don’t want to miss Badass Leaders Align:
You will learn a lot and take away some hot tips. More than that you will experience yourself, your business, and your mission in a new light. At Aligned Entrepreneurs we believe in transformation over information, and that when your learning is experiential you can walk away with exactly what you need and leave the rest. No giant to do list. Simply clarity and focus.
A cornerstone of Badass Leaders Align is our self-expression experience. Last year it was a second line parade down New Orlean’s Bourbon Street. This year we take to the water with our annual self-expression cocktail party. The safest space to explore who you may really want to be in the world! Judgment-free.
The focus is on aligning with your personal truth, and gathering the support to make your vision a reality. It is not about adding more to your plate! In fact as you align you’ll likely LIGHTEN YOUR LOAD and feel connected to your message in a whole new way, with creative ideas to spare! Ones that feel fun for you to implement, and spur you into action.
Our attendees are generous and showing up ready to share. Our speakers are selected by a committee of past clients/ attendees who are committed to changing the conversation. This is a no-pitch event. Our speakers are also participants, creating an energy of collaboration rather than ‘client-getting.’ You can relax into the community here.
