Our Mission

To create a collaborative community to help women flourish, thrive, and find joy in the journey of life.

Our Purpose

What is the secret to happiness?  We feel it is finding joy in every day and every experience.  The Wisdom Coalition, LLC is built on the foundation that there is power in joy.


The Wisdom Coalition will create the support women are missing today by providing them with words of wisdom, practical tools, and advice needed to maintain a positive, hopeful outlook about the future.  We will impart uplifting messages in an interactive SAFE (Secure, Authentic, Friendly, Energizing) environment, encouraging women to reboot, refuel, and recharge to create a positive outlook enabling them to find joy in every aspect of their lives.

Our Why

In our busy lives, many of us don’t take the time to look inside and find the joy that is waiting for us. We feel this life-changing gift of joy is perpetuated by the camaraderie and wisdom of other women.


The ultimate goal of the Wisdom Coalition is to help women connect and commit to their personal passion and inner wisdom, empowering them to move forward in life with vigor and self-love.


The Power of Why

Your "why" (Y) is the driving force behind your thoughts and actions.  It is your central guidance and ultimate purpose.  At the Wisdom Coalition, we believe your Y should be at the heart of everything you do. 

Connect to Your Why (Y)

Knowing and staying connected to your Y plays an essential role in living a joy-filled life.  Your Y sets the foundation for all of your whats, whens, wheres, whos, and hows.  Think about the power of Y.  If you are clear on your Y, you WILL find a way.  And if you are passionate about your Y, you WILL find a how.  And if your Y is clear AND you are also passionate about your Y, you will achieve any what, trust in when, meet all the right whos, end up in the right wheres, and overcome any challenging hows!  The key is digging deep and building awareness to discover your personal Y. Your Y is unique and meaningful to YOU.  Staying connected to your Y will enable you to thrive and find joy in all aspects of life.

The Y Behind The Wisdom Coalition

Our ultimate intention is to collectively elevate the human spirit by using the power of joy to fuel our core energy.  The Y behind creating this collaborative community is to help one another increase vitality and take control of our personal power.  Doing so will enable us to own our energy and use it for the greater good of ourselves and others; thereby removing the joy vacuum created by our stinking thinking, self doubt, and limiting beliefs.

The spirals represent:

expansion, connection and balance







Core Energy

(Inner Light)


The Wisdom Symbol exemplifies the mind, body, spirit connection to our inner light. It is a visual representation of the relationship between our thoughts, our actions and our emotions, and their effect on our core energy.


This symbol is comprised of 3 Y's coming together to create one larger Y (our ultimate purpose.) Each Y represents a different dimension; thoughts, actions and emotions.  The sunflower in the center represents our core energy (our heart, our inner light, and our truth.) The bottom Y represents the body; with our actions rooted, grounded and balanced by our core energy. The upper Y's represent the mind and spirit, like open arms reaching towards the sky, welcoming a life filled with joy. The spirals at the ends of each Y represent expansion, connection, and balance.

Each Y is growing out of the heart-center, representing the fact that our core energy (inner light, passion, purpose, truth or whatever word resonates with you) is the foundation of our Y. And therefore, when we are connected to our Y, our core energy drives our thoughts, actions, and feelings enabling us to live a joy-filled, purpose-driven life.


This symbol serves as a reminder to live your life from the inside out (with your passion driving your thoughts, actions and feelings) rather than from the outside in (allowing the outside world to influence your thoughts, actions and feelings).  


Our thoughts, actions and feelings are all interrelated such that each influences the other. Remember that we control our thoughts and actions, and therefore our feelings!  When we increase the quality of our thoughts, we instantly elevate our feelings and are open to experience more joy and unlimited bliss.  


By sharing our wisdom with others, we stay connected to our passion and purpose, allowing our inner light to shine for all to see, and igniting the light of those around us.  We are essentially spreading the joy of life!


Our ultimate goal at the Wisdom Coalition is to live life with purpose-centered thoughts, actions, and feelings enabling us to uplift others we encounter on our journey.
