We all have narrative running through our minds about who we are and how our life is to be. This story has most often been shaped by a lifetime of conditioning, other people’s beliefs, ideas of who we should be, and past, sometimes painful, experiences. Though this voice is ever present in our minds, we seldom take the time to examine how it’s directing our life.
What if you could write the next chapter of your life just as you desire it to be? What if you could call to the surface any beliefs or fears that are holding you back from the life you would otherwise lead?
Here’s your opportunity. Join us for a life-changing day with an intimate group of powerful women to explore your two life stories – the one from this point backwards and the one from this point forward.
Explore and learn how to let go of the limiting stories, resistance and fear-based attachments that have ingrained a sense of hesitancy to living the life you have felt deep inside your soul.
Our presenters traverse the world empowering women through unique and engaging experiences. This is a rare opportunity to work with them locally.

Deborah Bateman epitomizes achievement, determination and kindness, professionally and personally. Her career has seen her rise from teller to executive while never losing the grounded perspective and touch that makes her a valued friend and mentor. Committed to developing individuals around her and helping them reach personal and professional goals, Deborah speaks from the heart when relating her own life experiences to those who value her counsel.
“I encourage persons. I coach and mentor, to really dig deep and find out who they are,” Bateman says. “Not who your parents wanted you to be, not who your friends think you should be. But really and truly who you are. To have that target design of knowing ourselves and our purpose is absolutely paramount. Too many people – men and women – are a result of being who someone else has asked them to be.”

J’Lein Liese, Ph.D.
“Tell me that I can’t and I’ll show you how it’s done!” is J’Lein’s mantra to living life. Having left home at 13 years old to ride horses (hunters/ jumpers) professionally, she moved from Scottsdale, AZ to Nogales, AZ on the border of Mexico. It was living and going to school in Nogales that sparked J’Lein’s passion for social change. At 17, when she was forced to make a decision - go to university or ride horses professionally - her lung collapsed. A spontaneous pneumothorax she considers “divine intervention” it gave her the space she needed to decide to quit riding horses and devote her life to resolving conflict and developing leaders who want to be an influence for the greater good.
Having never had a formal “job” but a blessed, meaningful and passion-filled life, J’Lein has lived, worked and traveled to over 70 countries. Clients range from Fortune 500 global companies to governments. A frequent international speaker, J’Lein spoke at TEDx National Women’s Day in 2012 as well as several United Nations conferences. Her work has been featured on MTV and the American Psychological Association’s award-winning documentary “Warning Signs” and in multiple books.
However, J’Lein’s most important and fulfilling life experience is being mother to her 10 year old son Ethan. A single mother who was often told by “well meaning” friends that she would have to alter her life when her son was born (i.e. can’t take a child to Africa), J’Lein listened to her heart and today Ethan has been to over 30 countries and is as happy living in a traditional Masai village in Kenya as he is at home in Scottsdale with his video games.
As a coach, J’Lein combines a laser-sharp focus that will help you pull each fear, belief and hidden passion to the surface so you can step into (and own) the life your heart is yearning to experience.
