Working Moms – Overcome the stigma, guilt, and other nonsense around getting help.

Despite women making up a strong proportion of the workforce, household tasks are still the woman’s responsibility in most households.  

For the women leaders who are investing in the help that they need to successfully manage careers and home responsibilities, statistics show that they feel ashamed to admit it.  

This has to change.  

Let’s talk about it.  

Join us on Thursday, February 8th at 8pm Eastern to hear from guest experts COL Katie Matthew, Ph.D. and MAJ Erin Williams, M.S. on how we can overcome the stigma and guilt associated with investing in the household support we need.

Body Image – Empowering Performance Over Appearance

Women are constantly bombarded with messages about how we should look.  The world elevates what is aesthetically pleasing over what is functional – or simply tells us that whatever it is we look like, we should look like something else.  

In the military, the completely inaccurate tape test and ever-present emphasis on military bearing create constant pressure to look a certain way.  

The combined effect is that so many military and veteran women struggle with body image issues, low confidence, and anxiety.  

Let’s talk about it.  

In this interactive discussion, we’ll explore:

  • What has created the body image issues with which so many women struggle?
  • What does it look like, in a practical sense, to elevate function over aesthetic?
  • How can we support each other to fall out of line, resist the pressure the world imposes on us, and overcome self-doubt on our individual journeys toward optimal health, strength, fitness, and confidence?  
  • All three of this call’s facilitators are, or have been, strength athletes in one form or another.  Many women who focus on strength training have a positive body image.  Why do you think this is the case, and what do you recommend based on this observation?

Join us on Thursday, June 1st at 8pm Eastern to hear from guest experts MAJ Jessica Phillips and COL Kristin Saling!

Jessica Phillips is a 2000 graduate of West Point, US Army Reserve Officer, operations manager, professional natural fitness competitor, and mom of two.  She has been able to overcome various obstacles in her life by focusing on specific strength-based goals.  Her own journey to finding a healthy lifestyle has given her insight into the challenges that keep women from finding the path to their best lives.  

COL Kristin Saling is a 2001 graduate of West Point and a US Army Officer.  A collegiate all-American strength athlete turned runner, senior military leader, and mom, Kristin understands the challenges of creating a healthy life around a busy schedule – and has experienced first hand the military pressures that emphasize appearance over performance.  After commissioning as an Engineer, Kristin deployed in support of OIF1 and OIF3, commanded an Engineer company, and deployed again with the 25th Infantry Division as a staff officer.  After attending graduate school at the University of Virginia, Kristin joined the faculty at West Point in the Department of Systems Engineering, after which time she transferred to Functional Area 49, Army Operations Research and Systems Analysis.

Freedom from Doing Too Much

You’re chronically over-obligated.  Your calendar is too full.

You’re exhausted.  

You feel overwhelmed and empty, and like this can’t possibly be it.

You feel constantly pulled in different directions, with no clear way to decide what to do and not do.

You spend so much time and energy chasing the tasks on a never-ending to-do list.  

You feel like something is missing – and maybe that something is wrong with you.  

Let’s talk about it.  

As busy, high-performing women, we have so much to give.  …which often means that we give too much, over-commit, over-obligate, and put ourselves last.

Join us for an interactive conversation on how we can break free from doing too much – so that we can give our full selves to the right things – the things that are truly meaningful and important.  

In this interactive discussion, we’ll explore:

  • What causes us to over-obligate?  Why are our calendars too full and our to-do lists too long?
  • How can we identify what is truly important and meaningful?
  • How do we choose what is truly meaningful – and how do we say no to that which isn’t?  

Join us on Thursday, July 6th at 8pm Eastern for an interactive conversation with guest expert Retired Chief Master Sergeant Shelina Frey on how we can experience freedom from doing too much!

Overcome Self-Doubt so You Can SLAY

Imposter syndrome.




Even the most confident high-performing woman experiences fear and self-doubt – often without even realizing it.  

If we aren’t aware, deliberate, and intentional about it, our instinctive and conditioned desire to keep ourselves safe will only keep us small.  

Let’s talk about it.  

In this interactive conversation with Rochelle “SLAY” Hemingway, we’ll explore:

  • Why imposter syndrome is normal – and actually a good thing
  • Why fear and that “inner mean girl” voice are both normal – and how to overcome them
  • Practical steps for courageously becoming our best selves so that we can create meaningful lives that we love

This call is for you if you are 

  • In a period of life or career transition, 
  • Starting a new career, founding a new business, or in a phase of intentionally becoming YOURSELF
  • Struggling with imposter syndrome, self-doubt, or anxiety
  • Just wanting to hang out with some super cool women who SEE you, understand you, and will uplift and support you

Join us on Thursday, August 3rd at 8pm Eastern to hear from guest expert Retired Command Chief Master Sergeant Rochelle “SLAY” Hemingway on how we can face our fears and insecurities to step into the next phase of our lives with the confidence we need to slay.

When Rochelle “SLAY” Hemingway graduated from Northwestern High School located in Kokomo, Indiana, she decided to pursue further education as an Occupational Therapist.  After a year of college at the Indiana University of Kokomo Indiana, she decided to enter the United States Air Force on August 4th, 1991.

During her military career, she started as a medical technician.  Later, she served as an Independent Duty Medical Technician, First Sergeant, Inspector General Self-Assessment Program Manager, Medical Group Superintendent, and Command Chief Master Sergeant.

Rochelle is currently the CEO and Founder of SLAY To Success, LLC where she helps empower women to face their fears and insecurities to step into their next phase of life with confidence after retiring or pivoting from a 20+ year career by implementing her signature “SLAY” framework.  She also self-published her first book titled “SLAY To Success”, guides 800+ women in the SLAY To Success Facebook community, works as a contracted facilitator for Air Force Global Strike Command’s Striker Leadership Course, serves as Chairperson for Waldorf University’s Outreach Committee and is frequently sought out to speak in-person and on virtual platforms.

One of the biggest challenges of Rochelle’s life was serving and leading as a Chief Master Sergeant.  A few months after she found out she achieved the rank of Chief, she was deployed to the countries of Jordan and Kuwait for 6 months as the Medical Group Superintendent at both locations.  When she returned from the deployment, she was selected to serve as the Command Chief Master Sergeant at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota.  She led the wing’s enlisted force and served as the primary advisor to the commander on all matters concerning the morale, welfare, warfighting effectiveness, operational utilization, and professional development of nearly 3,200 enlisted Airmen and 8,000 total personnel who support the largest B-1 combat wing in the U.S. Air Force.

She led through the onset of the pandemic, racial and social unrest, multiple unexpected tragedies, and significant base mission changes.  She motivated herself and others to get through these difficulties by using the word “SLAY”.

Rochelle’s life and leadership philosophies are based on preparation, character, psychological safety, positive mental attitude, and resilience.

Even though Rochelle has over 30 years of leadership experience in unprecedented conditions in both the military and civilian sectors, she is still on a journey to become an even stronger leader.  She recently achieved her master of science degree in strategic leadership. She retired on October 1st, 2021.

Rochelle and her husband Dominic Hemingway have been married for 20 years.  They have a 12-year-old son named Andrew who is in the 7th grade and loves to play basketball.  They are currently residing in Odenton Maryland.

Rochelle enjoys health and fitness, shopping, and traveling.
