“WHERE I BEGIN” E-COURSE



Imagine what life would be like if you had space to create your big dreams, courage to speak your truth, and gumption to live a HELL YES life.




THIS IS WHERE YOU BEGIN.



I get it. You want a life of freedom, confidence and soul-alignment.

And yet, you still find yourself obligated to “should.” Over-giving, undervaluing yourself, and stuck giving your energy to what others think far too often. Even though you’re powerful, strong and independent, you’re still:

  • Downplaying your personality in fear of being “too much.”

  • Tired from all your doing, striving and achieving.

  • Feeling scattered and overwhelmed by all the to-do’s and expectations.

  • Playing small and refusing to own your shine. (Making sure everyone else feels comfortable, at your own expense).

  • Letting others determine what you do with your time and energy.

  • Feel paralyzed at the thought of those “tough convos;” communicating your vulnerable needs, desires and boundaries to friends.

  • Are hiding your truth from those you love most, in fear of letting them down or rejection.

  • Your emotions are beholden to the whims of others’ comments, feelings and actions.

  • Convinced if you were just better, more, or could please others, you’d be happy and at peace.

  • Expend all your energy hanging onto the expectations of those who didn’t have your highest in mind.

  • Hang onto those who don’t want you to thrive because you’re afraid. Afraid you’ll be alone. Afraid to speak your truth. Afraid if you set boundaries you’ll be considered “selfish,” or even a “bitch.”

  • Don’t have the right support in your life to set effective boundaries, so every time you try, they don’t stick.



The good news, although boundaries take time and skill, they can be learned and you can take your life, happiness and peace into your own hands.



This means, when you learn the basics of boundaries, you can have:

  • More Peace - no more guilt! You’ll have the ability to turn off mental noise of what others are thinking and stay in your own lane.

  • More Power - Be able to stand in your truth with power, no matter what others say or do.

  • More Confidence - Confidence to take up more space- be more honest, feel free in your own life.

  • Healthier Relationships - Leave the relationships that don’t serve you, and shift the ones that need a “boundaries boost.”

  • Better Health - No more striving to meet expectations or “hustle” at the cost of your own physical wellbeing.

  • More Freedom - To be yourself and that you can naturally attract the right people, and stop trying to be something you’re not.

  • More Presence - Show up fully in your highest self by learning to create win-win situations in your relationships, no longer reacting in anger or hurt when others push back at your boundaries.

  • More Fun - You’ll have capacity for more values-aligned goodness. (This is your life, on your terms).

  • More Space - You won’t be rushing from one holiday party to the next, rushing to answer emails or have a full calendar. Your priorities will be clear and your life will have more white space.

  • More Effective Communication - Instead of hoping for your needs to be met, you’ll have the skills to speak your truth with efficacy and integrity.

  • More Clarity - Cuz when you cut out all the noise and “should’s,” you’ll finally hear your Soul speak.

  • More Pleasure - When you stop pleasing everyone else, you can finally tune in and meet your own desires.

And less of everything that keeps you from your joy!

"Before taking this program, I was always setting my needs aside for others, I was unsure of how to move forward in relationships that really mattered to me but were sucking me dry.

'Where I Begin' stripped away all of the lies that I had been telling myself about my role within relationships and equipped me to set boundaries with the confidence I'd been craving. I no longer have to feel guilty for saying 'no'. I can unapologetically decide for myself what is and is not ok with me and I can offer up more love and compassion for others by doing so.

This program made me realize that boundaries come from the heart and it's up to each of us to set our own rules if we want healthy, thriving relationships. My favorite thing was how Madison so clearly communicated that boundaries allow us to love BETTER, it’s about more love, not less! Madison evokes so much warmth and transparency in each module. I never once felt shame for not having this figured out! For her inspiring wisdom, witty personality, and knowledge I gained in this program , I will be eternally grateful! 'Where I Begin' changes everything." -Sharon L

TAKE IT FROM DR. BRENE BROWN:

“Compassionate people ask for what they need. They say no when they need to, and when they say yes, they mean it. They’re compassionate because their boundaries keep them out of resentment.

“This program was life-changing! As a mother of a new baby and a full-time nurse, it’s difficult to put myself first. That along with the ‘others first, you last’ mentality I grew up with kept me from feeling like I had the right to boundaries. Knowing now that I can say “no” and take time for myself and make sure that I am taken care of was really freeing.  It also gave me a lot of freedom to remember that I cannot control others reactions but I can control how I respond to their reactions and live in integrity within myself. I have spent far too long trying to make everyone happy!  I walked away from the material feeling very loved and challenged to think in a new way. I’ve already told everyone I know about it! ”

“Growing up, I never heard the word boundary or saw it modeled. I struggled with setting boundaries because deep down I viewed them as selfish and thought I needed to “get over myself” when I felt a line had been crossed. It was during the workshop when I truly understood that I need to set boundaries to honor my values and the people I care about. I often “sacrifice” myself, my time, my values, my work, and even the people I care about most to accommodate someone or something else. I’m coming to really grasp what it means to be responsible for my own happiness and NO ONE ELSE’S!  Because of this program, I am choosing to say “no” when I would rather not do something and saying “yes” to the things I really do want to do! I am so grateful for Madison’s wisdom on discovering where you begin!”

Why did I create Where I Begin?

Madison_-85.jpg

I was as sweet as sugar, spice, and everything nice.  Always striving to be beautiful, smart, helpful, a good daughter, an excellent wife, the best friend; always going above and beyond, always there to listen, care, and have it all together for everybody else.  Until I hit a wall...

I'd been so busy trying to be someone for everyone else that I completely lost myself. 

I was carrying family issues that were not mine to carry, trying to change people I was never meant to change, living for expectations, societal approval, and trying to please people who could never be pleased. It was in my first therapy session I was introduced to the term "boundaries" and it was then I realized I didn't know where I began. I didn't know what healthy friendship looked like, I didn't know I had the right to be upset with or say "no" to someone I loved, I didn't know I could go my own way and shape my own life! 

I didn't know being me was enough. 

Discovering where I began changed everything for me. I started seeing how my people-pleasing wasn't serving me, and started living from genuine love. My "yes" became HELL YES, and my no was a kind but firm, "no thanks." I learned to have those uncomfortable conversations, decline good opportunities to make space for the right opportunities, and developed friendships and healed relationships with family I never thought I could.

 Most of all though, I finally know myself and am living my life on my own terms, doing it from a place of overflowing love.

Where I Begin is a program made specifically for dreamers, for women who love to love, and who want to feel their best while changing the world. You can stop people-pleasing, have thriving relationships, and finally live life on your own terms!

These are boundaries for you to live free of expectations so you can be the woman you were meant to be.

If you ever feel drained and exhausted, tired from keeping up with the expectations, like no one sees your needs, frustrated the people in your life won't change, and really want to discover what it feels like to live fully alive, Where I Begin is perfect for you.

“Before taking Where I Begin I didn’t know I had boundary issues! In taking it, I had a huge “aha” moment where I realized I was trusting people who were not safe. I now see that being an open-book in unsafe relationships was causing me to live in fear and hold myself back from pursuing my passions. Having that consistent confidence with what I love in life will make me unstoppable! ”

This program can be completed in less time and with more benefit than a Netflix binge on a cozy Saturday afternoon. ;) You can take the entire course in one sitting or break it up over a few sittings. My suggestion is to block off a few hours at a time over 2 weeks, that way you can digest the modules an do the coursework without overwhelm. The program content totals to 5 hours long, not including journaling and worksheet time.


Q- I have good relationships with my family, but still feel held back by expectations. Will this still help me?

Abso-freaking-lutely! Boundaries aren't just for those with "toxic" people in their life, in fact, it’s the small, everyday boundaries that allow you to really show up like a Queen! The tips and insight in this course will give you the clarity and boost you need to stop living for all the "shoulds" and "expectations." I teach a love-based solution rooted in self-trust. So no matter if you've got tricky relationships or simply want to live free of approval, this is perfect for you.

Q- Who is this program NOT for?

Those needing immediate relief from a toxic, abusive or narcissistic relationship or are in a crisis situation.

Where I Begin was not designed to be a substitute for therapy. If you are struggling with severe codependency, or are in a toxic/abusive relationship or think you might be, please see in-person therapist.

Q- Do you offer a refund?

Where I Begin is offered with no refunds.

Q- I have no problem speaking my truth but the people in my life don't "get it."  Will this program help someone like me?

Q- Can men or those identified as men take this course?

100% yes! Although this program was designed for women and the examples given are the conditioning stereotypically women face, but the knowledge in each module is applicable to any gender, sex, orientation, religion, and relationship.

Q- What if I want to enroll in Awaken Her Soul + just get this as a bonus? Should I wait till then?

Because this e-course is offered as a bonus to my signature program, Awaken Her Soul, if you choose to enroll in Awaken Her Soul in June, you’ll automatically get the full cost of what you paid for the boundaries program discounted off your Awaken Her Soul tuition! Meaning, you won’t pay more just because you took the boundaries e-course! ;) Just consider it a perk of being a part of my inner circle.


Stop people pleasing, have thriving relationships,

and finally live life on your terms.




Words from previous grads:

"I always knew that boundaries were important, and after years of therapy, I was certainly familiar with the concept, but Where I Begin gave me a completely new framework for my experience. I now have the tools I need to protect my time and my perception of myself despite negative feedback. I find I now have a language I can use to describe what I'm feeling, and, most importantly, the confidence to listen to myself in the midst of other influences. Honoring myself in this way has shown me that I too deserve the life I want. In the past year since taking this course, I've noticed a huge difference in my peace of mind." —Sarah T.

I now see that being an open-book in unsafe relationships was causing me to live in fear and hold myself back from pursuing my passions. Having that consistent confidence with what I love in life will make me unstoppable! -Jasmine


Because of this program, I am choosing to say "no" when I would rather not do something and saying "yes" to the things I really do want to do! I am so grateful for Madison’s wisdom on discovering where you begin!
-Celia


Knowing now that I can say “no” and take time for myself and make sure that I am taken care of was really freeing. It also gave me a lot of freedom to remember that I cannot control others reactions but I can control how I respond to their reactions. -Mallory


The simplicity in which Madison expressed the concepts in the program really got me thinking about the mixed boundaries in my own life, with personal and business. The program sparked a realization on why I'm taking on more than I can handle when I want to help my friends. It’s time to redefine how my relationship works! -Cecile


This program made me realize that boundaries aren't like rules to a game that you read in a manual. Boundaries come from the heart and it's up to each of us to do our own digging and set our own rules if we want healthy, thriving relationships. Where I Begin' changes everything. -Sharon

I had a big “aha” moment when it comes to boundaries that I could have gone my whole life without recognizing if it wasn’t for this program. -Kinsey


My favorite about this program was that I don’t give myself space to things I know are good for me and I enjoy - like journaling. The module around boundaries with yourself really hit home! My writing and creativity has gotten so easily pushed aside because I don't value it or see it as a legitimate reason to say “NO" to an activity.

I went into the program with the mentality I had “another thing I needed to change,” but I felt feeling encouraged and inspired to give myself to my passion. -Jennie


I had many ‘aha moments’ and
I’ve been able to use the tools she taught in my daily life to gain peace of mind in my relationships (especially the difficult ones!) -Stacy

Before taking Where I Begin I found myself frustrated I couldn’t fix the people in my life! That was kind of an oh sh*t, you can't control what people do moment! I finally feel a shift towards acceptance and gentleness, something I didn’t know boundaries could have. -Kate

Even as a life coach myself, I didn’t realize - until taking this workshop - how much power I was still giving away, and how often I was still finding myself in “people-pleasing” mode. -Sarah
