Your Leadership Recipe
LIVE
The universe isn’t out to get you. It’s here to conspire with you.

Most days. 
The universe isn’t out to get you. It’s here to conspire with you.

Most days. 
And yet, the world doesn’t always have the backs of women.
 
In fact, it can be downright hostile.  And let's face it, we can be downright hostile to other women as well.  

We collectively make 77 cents on the dollar in corporate environments, and women in leadership have to work their asses off to be considered trustworthy and claim true leadership roles.  Run those numbers through other lenses such as race? Black women make 65 cents, and Latina women make 54 cents on the dollar...Despite similar educational backgrounds and capabilities as their white male counterparts.  

Statistics like that?  
Should NOT exist.  And yet, they persist.  
 

We spend hours and hours working hard to claim our niche, proving ourselves each step of the way all while strategically attempting to build credible authority. 

On top of all this, we're bombarded by media that doesn't serve the kind of women we are or who we want to become.

And said media is constantly pitting us against one another.  Social, news outlets, it doesn't matter.  It's a battle.  
But how can we counteract this toxic culture?  
We can choose to rise.  Together.
​​​​​​​
Because no one is free, unless we are ALL free.  And truly, all of us.  How, of course, is the big question.  The solution?  Looking closely at our personal, community, and global leadership capacities. A process I call Your Leadership Recipe.
The hard truth?
Women are under capacitated as leaders.  Women of color, often even more so. Because we aren't expected to become leaders.
​​​​​​
Meaning, we're not trained/programmed/expected to lead. In fact, most of our cultural conditioning is that women aren't as effective as men when in leadership roles. But that is just patently false.  We're called shrill, bossy, overly emotional, know-it-alls and we're bullied (even in adulthood) by our male and female compatriots alike.

But YOU know we're more than that. WE KNOW we have more to offer than meets the eye of some beholders. Women are just as effective, and often have just as much if not MORE ability. We just haven't been raised, conditioned, and capacitated for radical and transformative leadership.  (Admittedly, neither have men.)

Your Leadership Recipe LIVE! 
A no-bullshit, retreat/workshop/live event for women* (and those who desire to capacitate them) who want to realize their big dreams, lead movements, and do so without selling their sisters (not just cisters) out in the process.
 
This is not a mean 'girl', compare yourself to everyone else, their name brands, and their bank account kind of event.  And it most CERTAINLY is not a pitchfest (50% of the time you're in the audience while speakers are on stage attempting to get you to buy stuff pitch fest.  In fact, our speakers don't sell from the stage, at all.)

This event is to find YOUR personal Leadership Recipe.  Taking all your ingredients, tools, and wisdoms to craft your own method of leadership.  Because the catch all way of leading?  It's long dead.
 

This event is a hands on, transformational workshop for leaders and leaders in training who long to make shift happen in the world.  

Think of this event like a retreat for your mind, body, and soul.  There will be movement, relaxation, action, business acumen, leadership, and discussions of intersectionality (led by people who's entire mission is to lead this charge).  You'll go home with a renewed sense of purpose, concrete strategies to implement right now, and practices to start engaging with immediately.  

WHEN?
March 9-16, 2019

Three days of Courageous Cooking, a day off, then three days of intensive leadership training.  (I know you might be thinking...COOKING?  Well, Makenna believes that cooking is the PERFECT way to look at how we show up.  We'll use the cooking classes as a way to take inventory of our current way of being.  It's actually kind of magic.)
WHERE?
Chateauneuf-Grasse, France
La Pitchoune, The Former Summer Home of Julia Child AND Bramafam, the Former Home of Simone Beck

 

(Airport to fly into?  Nice-Cote D'Azur.  Then you can Uber or Taxi into La Pitchoune)

WHY?
A rising tide lifts all boats....hypothetically.  

But that's just not always how it works.  We have to rise TOGETHER and do so with INTENTION.  Otherwise?  Stuff stays broken, and systems of oppression persist.  

Think of this as your opportunity to rise in your own leadership, and to help others rise with you.  To truly own your commitments to your work, changing the world at large, and not just changing YOUR inner world. We have a metric ton of magic to share, and this is the space to do that.  
WHO?
There is room for 13 folx to join us.  That's it. We can have up to 16 if couples would like to share a room and bed in Bramafam.
Movement leaders.  Entrepreneurs. Moms. Sisters. Friends. Corporate executives. Teachers. Non-profit mavens.  Gender non-conforming humans.  Folx who long to lead.  Women who already ARE leading.  You're all invited.  

(*When I say women I mean ALL women AND gender non-conforming folx who have experience oppression due to femininity and/or woman-hood.  Gender is a sticky thing, as someone who has also wrestled with gender identity for years, I do in fact get this. 

Think of this event as centered around women, and women identified folks.  So that being said, any self-identified woman or gender non-conforming/trans-feminine/has-experienced-life-as-a-woman-at-some-point-in-time human is welcome.  And we certainly don't discriminate based on race/creed/religion/gender presentation/sexual orientation/etc., etc., etc.)

Meet....Makenna Held

She's been in marketing since the tender age of 16 and has aided in scaling businesses from zero to profits, from 10k years to 100k years, and from revenues in the millions to revenues in the billions.  (Yes, literally). She's a writer, speaker, trainer, courageous cook, and FOUR Business CEO. (And yes, she sleeps 9 hours a night. And lives a relatively balanced life.  Truly.) 

Before she took to the online world she was a professor of Business and Economics, and was highly sought after as a high-energy teacher who made her classroom frequently laugh with delight with her eccentric metaphors, and curious homework assignments.  Surprise!  She brings that energy to R.E.A.L. marketing too.    

She's a strange one in the online marketing world, equally resourced in teaching AND marketing know-how.  Which makes her lethal in helping you grow your business.

What People Are Saying About Makenna's Live Events
​​​​​​​

MELISSA GERRIOR
"These events are for someone who knows that there is more to life than what they are currently experiencing, and is ready to jump to find it."
OMKARI WILLIAMS
 "This was, hands down, the best conference I've attended in at least 5 years. The content was thought-provoking and inspiring. The flow was extremely well thought out and implemented. "
MEGAN HALE
"I left feeling completely determined and confident that I could become the woman I knew I could be to lead differently and more wholeheartedly. I think back to this event often as a truly shifting moment for me. These are the types of events that are needed."
KERI-ANNE LIVINGSTONE
"I appreciated the heart and soul Makenna put into ensuring speakers and attendees felt nurtured and taken care of.  These events are for people seeking a deeper conversation with tangible take aways and life-long connections with others on a similar path."
LINDSAY PADILLA
"Makenna knows how to orchestrate an event. This was a mother effin symphony. Every detail, every moment, every speaker, (did I mention the massages during checkin?!), filled with intention. I felt so taken care of. This is a mandatory event for my business. I will attend as long as she's keen on hosting them!"
SARINA HARZ
"Makenna's live event was unlike any I've been too.  I was nervous at first, unsure of where I would fit in. The first day, I was a bit uncomfortable. I was excited to be with such a phenomenal group of women, but a bit intimidated. It forced me to find my edge and then love it. By day two, I felt more cozy. We were digging into social justice, intersectionality, and how to lead. It was messy and beautiful. By the next morning, I had 20 new best friends and was ready to conquer the world! Her event was a life-changing moment that supported my authentic expression and helped me find my courage to lead in the world. As a result of the event I have grown my workshops by over 50%, been accepted for publication, and begun to really show up in my world. Makenna is an igniter of leadership and authentic expression."
