Conscious Leadership Collective for Women in Business

Connect. Lead. Elevate.

It’s time to elevate yourself - both personally and professionally.

You’re not a beginner anymore - and you’re ready to elevate YOURSELF so that you can elevate your business.

Your next level of growth isn’t in a strategy, course, or program - but rather in expanding the way that you think, experiencing next perspectives, and surrounding yourself with the right people.

You're Different

As you grow as a business leader - you’ve started to notice that you’re DIFFERENT that the people around you.

You’re learning to trust yourself, you’re leaning into new ideas, and you’re tired of doing the same thing that everyone else is doing.

You’re looking to surround yourself with a community of women who are on the same trajectory.

Straight. To. The. Top.


Only 12% of women business owners make over $100k per year*

AND Only 4.2% of all women-owned firms have revenues of 1 million or more*

AND Women only hold 24% of senior leadership positions*

We’re NOT okay with that.

(and we know you aren’t either)

The Best Part?

Success is a mindset.

Not an income level. Not a job title. Not years of experience..

Be in the Room is a conscious leadership collective for women in business.


It’s a space to CONNECT with other high-achieving women that span different industries and job titles.


It’s a space to show your ability to LEAD through idea sharing, community and collaboration you will not find anywhere else.


It’s a space to ELEVATE every aspect of your life and truly become woman and leader you want to become.

It’s the TRUE definition of a mastermind.

The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony

- Napoleon Hill

Our definite purpose

BECOME the best version of ourselves.

Every. Single. Day.


Build powerful relationships.

MYTH: "It's Lonely at the Top"

As humans, we aren’t MEANT to do life alone, but we hear over and over again that “it’s lonely at the top.”

When AMAZING women come together and truly CONNECT with one another - we become unstoppable.

When we take time to CONNECT with ourselves - we learn to trust ourselves, love ourselves, and build rich, full lives.

Hard truth

You'll never grow if...

... you’re hanging out in the same rooms, with the same people, in the same industries, with the same job title, at the same income level. It simply will not happen.


Lead Yourself

Lead Your Company

Lead Your Clients

Lead Your Team

Lead Your Family

There is NO shortage of opportunities to demonstrate your leadership in different areas of your life.


Whether it’s learning a new skill, elevating your leadership acumen, or getting a crash course in the newest marketing trends - you’re constantly looking to elevate yourself.


We celebrate wins. The wins you’re afraid to share with your friends, because they just don’t get you. The wins your family doesn’t understand because they never really understood your drive.

We support challenges. Even the most successful women have challenges - and as a leader, it’s hard to find a safe space to go to discuss them. Oftentimes you’re left to figure it out on your own. Not anymore.

We hold others accountable for being a leader. Not just someone who delegates tasks, gives orders, and holds an impressive title. We hold you accountable for being an inspiration and empowering others to succeed - even when you aren't around.


We are a movement of women who want to DO things differently.

Your next level of leadership is as much INTERNAL as it is EXTERNAL.

You are ready to become the next version of yourself.

And we all know it’s not about DOING more or LEARNING more…it’s about BEING the leader you know you were meant to be. And being around the right people - who hold YOU accountable.

What is Conscious Leadership?

Conscious Leadership is about leading from a place of self awareness.

It's about leading from a place of connection.

It's about leading from a place of integrity.

Conscious Leadership: Showing up as a conscious leader, whether you're a business leader, community leader, or thought leader - is about showing up self aware, it's about knowing yourself FIRST, it's about service, it's about lifting others up ....not just telling them what to do!

Conscious leaders empower OTHERS to become the best versions of themselves.

What is the commonality of the Be in the Room members, if not income level or industry?

They want more.

They want to do things differently in their business and their life.

They’re willing to do the INNER work and the OUTER work.

They’re solution focused, not problem focused.

They respond versus react

They’re creating their own version of success.

Is this a coaching program?

No. Not in a traditional way - it’s not about a step by step process or a blueprint to grow your business or become a better leader.

It’s a peer led collective designed to raise the collective consciousness of the group, in turn - helping you level up in your business and your life.

What can I expect for an ROI?

What’s the value of a relationship?

New ideas? New perspectives? New skills?

This isn’t a traditional networking org that’s focused on passing referrals, nor is this coaching program that says do these 3 things and make this amount of money.

The ROI is 100% determined by YOU.

Do you show up to the events?

Do you attend your mastermind calls?

Do you interact in the online community?

Do you connect with the Strategic Advisors?

If the answer is YES - then the ROI for you will likely be 10x what you paid to join.

But - if you’re joining JUST for the ROI - you might want to think about WHY you’re joining.

Why is there an application process if it’s not about income level, industry, or job title?

To protect the integrity of the community.

While it’s not a demographic that ties our community together - it’s a psychographic.

And because of that - we are fiercely protective of who we welcome into our space.

How is this different from other networking organizations or masterminds?

Short answer - we cannot possibly know the ins and outs of all programs.

Here’s what we commit to…when you join this community, you don’t get bombarded with sales pitches. You get welcomed in with open arms and open hearts.

We aren’t a coaching mastermind. There is no guru here. There is no right or wrong way to do things. We do things differently - period. We don’t tell you what to do or how to do it. We create spaces and facilitate conversations that matter to help more women make more money and live fulfilling lives.

Is that different - I don’t know. But it’s what we saw missing from other spaces.

Is this for beginners?

Depends on how you define a beginner.

You might be a “beginner” in business - but have a 10 year career prior to starting a business - and you’d totally LOVE this environment.

You might be switching careers after 15 years in a different industry or role - and this is a GREAT place for you.

What if I’m already making seven figures or in a VP or Executive role?

If you’re tired of being the smartest person in the room - you belong here. Period.

If you don’t want to spend $30k, $50k, $100k to get into those rooms - we get that, too. We’d love to have you.

We believe that there is SO much value in connecting with and learning from people from different industries and experience levels.

We think you’ll love it.

What are the formats of your events?

We host weekly live events - we rotate through Peer Advisory Board, Peer Collaboration, and Peer Education sessions.

Everything we do is driven by our membership and the amazing-nes that they bring to the table.

What if I’m not actually in a leadership role?

If you run a business - even without a team - you’re a leader.

If you are in a corporate role and want to grow - you’re a leader.

If you want to influence others in a positive way - you’re a leader.


Leadership is NOT a job title. You can lead from ANY seat in the room.

Who else is in the room?

Great question - and our membership is growing every day.

We have a large number of business owners. Most make over $100k a year and up to $1.2 million.

Our corporate members and intrapreneurs are at the Director, Senior Director and VP levels (or some variation of that) in their respective career.


A few words from our members...


Impressive personal and professional growth.

As someone who works from home, I missed having the daily connections to a group of people. Whether it be to share a struggle, small win or to run an idea by – the sense of belonging is something lacking in the work-from-home world.

I am so impressed with the growth I am already feeling, both personally and professionally, by participating in the calls and chats. I feel supported, encouraged and comfortable to share or ask anything of the amazing women in this community!


Unique brilliance.

I love the in-person events. To be able to connect in person with a group of like-minded, powerhouse women running businesses at every level was pure magic. We laughed, we cried, we called each other out on some hard shit.

This community creates a safe space for us to be ourselves, and appreciate one another for our unique brilliance.
