Stop people-pleasing, build thriving relationships, and finally live life on your own terms.
It all starts by knowing where you begin.
Where I Begin is an intimate 4-module program centered on discovering your inner voice and creating boundaries to support your life! You will learn to overcome people-pleasing, stop living for expectations, gain practical tools to create boundaries, develop courage to have those difficult conversations, to say no, and ultimately support thriving relationships, inner peace, and the life of love you really long for.
WHERE I BEGIN IS PERFECT FOR YOU IF:
You don't have to settle for loneliness,
there is another way.
"Before taking this program, I was hurting, worn down, and bitter. Feeling like I always had to set 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

Why did I create Where I Begin?
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 didn't want to 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, "no thanks." I learned to have those uncomfortable conversations, decline good opportunities to make space for the right opportunities, and developed friendships and relationships with family I never thought I'd have.
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.
Q- Why limited access?
This program was intentionally designed to be taken within 2 weeks, and I offer 5 weeks to complete it! This provides enough time to work through the modules more than once, complete the worksheets, and process the lessons while encouraging you to set boundaries asap by putting your needs first!
With an easily digestible delivery style, follow along guides, and access to Madison via the Come Alive Tribe, you can be assured you will have the support you need to implement what you learn into your life.
Q- Will I get all the videos at once?
Once you enroll you will receive an email with your course materials, the password, and the link to your program! You will have access to the material from the day you enroll until January 15. Enrollment is open from Dec 5-11, and the program ends Jan 15, no exceptions.
Q- How much access will I have to Madison personally?
This program is a "do it yourself" course so you can take it at your own digestible pace! Each module was designed, written, and recorded by Madison personally with you in mind! In addition to the 4.5 hours of recorded program content, you will have full access to the Come Alive Facebook Community where Madison answers questions daily and email customer support as needed!
Q- I'm busy, how much time will this require from me?
This program can be completed in less time and with more benefit than a Stranger Things binge. ;) 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 modules total to 2.5 hours long, combine that with the bonus content and you get a little over 4 hours of video training.
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! 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 to these issues and they always start with you. 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?
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 treatment or a licensed mental health care professional.
Where I begin is a relationship-focused program, so if you're looking for extensive self-boundaries, I suggest booking a one on one call with Madison and investing in coaching!
Q- How can I be assured this will work for me?
If you are not getting what you hoped for from Where I Begin and contact the MH team before Jan 15, 2018, and we will refund you every penny! Our only ask is that you take radical responsibility and invest yourself into the course content by taking notes and watching the modules. You must be willing to "do the work" in order for it to work for you! (There's no magic pill, babe. Only tools to learn and apply).
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?
Where I Begin is all about living the life of love you long for, and communicating our boundaries in the most effective way possible! You'll gain insight on boundaries and the skills necessary to speak your truth in a way that is not only loving, but really works.
Q- Can men take this course?100% yes! Although this program was designed for women and the examples given are stereotypically “women’s issues,” but the knowledge in each module is applicable to any gender, sex, orientation, religion, and relationship.
Stop people pleasing, have thriving relationships,
and finally live life on your terms.
What the girlz are saying:
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!
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.
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.
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
It felt so validating to know other women were going through the same thing. It was powerful. -Liz
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
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
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
