Take a deep breath. This is for you!
Let this end-of-year ritual be your chance to gain clarity about the lessons of 2023 + welcome in 2024 with intention
The Holiday Council
is a practical and magical online experience that gives you a way to process the year, reconnect to your desires + recommit to yourself. This will be our 13th year gathering together + the magic that happens astounds me every time.
This was a year of high highs + low lows for so many. Glimpses of hope + then reminders that so much is still out of our control. We've had the chance to stay true to the values + boundaries that became clear to us over the last few years.
Sometimes, all we could do is make another cup of tea, hide in the bathtub, and let out a muffled scream. Sometimes, all we could do is reach out to a friend + say, "I'm tired. This is hard. I'm not sure what to do to next."
You're here. I'm here. We made it.
Let’s alchemize the lessons delivered this year into alignment for ourselves + our world. We'll leave the bullsh*t behind + take with us the moments of grace + strength. We'll recharge our belief so we can keep up the good cause of creating the world we want to live in. We'll get clear on HOW we want to feel, WHO we want to be, and WHAT we want from 2024.
Our 21 days together will help you process what happened in 2023 + give you space to deliberately decide what you want from 2024. There's still much we can't control about the upcoming year -- but there's many pieces WE CAN.
This is the perfect time to trust yourself + follow your dreams as you continue to re-imagine what is possible for your life or even just your day-to-day experience. Because right now? We're in the midst of evolution. Many of our our old ways + old dreams aren't supportive of the women we've become + the lessons we've learned.
Let's set our Intentions for the new year
In our 3 weeks together, you'll learn a goal setting process for smart + soulful humans. It's a mash-up of live calls, deep prompts, gorgeous worksheets, visioning meditations, and flexible action planning templates for each quarter of 2024 — all designed to help you take stock of your world + get specific with your dreams + goals — even in the middle of your evolution.
Imagine this –
- Being seen + supported by a worldwide circle of your people who dig the combo of "a little bit magical + a little bit practical."
- Entering 2024 having processed 2023 (the good + the bad) and deliberately planned for 2024 without overwhelming yourself or regurgitating New Year's resolutions you've totally outgrown.
- Having accountability + camaraderie while you give yourself this GIFT of reflection, renewal, visioning + planning for the pieces of your world that you can control.
- An ethos that encourages dreamy possibilities, but also understands the reality of our individual situations + lived experiences. No spiritual bypassing (all vibes honored!) + no worshipping mother martyrdom -- but loads of belief in your ability to change as desired.
- Creating a beautiful yearly ritual for yourself -- something you can count on every year to support your self-awareness + goal work.
- Something just for you. You've given SO MUCH to everyone + everything else this year. This tradition? This community? This process? It's all yours.
I swear, HoCo is becoming as familiar to me as Thanksgiving and Christmas. I am SO excited!
I believe in you...
I believe you can identify + trust your desires.
And I believe that no matter what kind of year you may have had...
Let these 3 weeks be an invitation to reconnect with yourself and recommit to your dreams.
Nothing makes me more joyful than guiding you through this process; celebrating your deliberate gratitude, whole-hearted (self) compassion, big dreaming and ambitious action-planning.
Many of you know I wrapped one up one of my long held dreams this year -- taking a sabbatical + traveling with my family around the world! While a year of backpacking with your partner + kids and then moving back to your hometown (where it snowed BEFORE Halloween this year!) may not be your goal -- I'm incredibly grateful for the support + cheering on so many of you have offered me through the last 3 Holiday Councils as I dreamed + schemed my way to this reality.
Join us. Find out exactly what it means to release, renew, and remagic based on YOUR TRUTH. Let us witness + cheer YOU on.
To clarity! Sisterhood! Impact! And magic-making!
I have done the Holiday Council every year since it started. Every year, the content of the course changes only a little, but every year, my life changes drastically. The time I’ve spent with the Holiday Council reflecting on one year to plan for the next has made my life my own design. I look back on the plan I made last December, and I am exactly there right now. Thanks, Molly, for helping me create my own magic.
Every year when the Holiday Council rolls around I feel a flutter in my heart – a sense of wonder, excitement and gratitude. With Molly’s reassuring voice on the other end of the phone, I dream my wildest dreams and release my deepest sorrows. There are always tears – of joy and grief. It is my December ritual, and leaves me feeling like the year is complete and I have a plan for success in the year to come.
Last year was the first time in four years I didn’t participate in HoCo – I’d just had a baby and didn’t think we had room in our budget. I regretted that decision all. year. long. I didn’t realize how much I relied on my word for the year and my goals. There have been plenty of times this year where I’ve been floundering and I was craving my word for centering and focus. You better believe I’ll be investing in myself this year!
We’ve been doing the Holiday Council for 13 years now + it’s incredible to see it becoming a treasured December tradition for 1,322 (and counting!) of you. Ready to join us?
with the Holiday Council?
Tuesdays at 6 pm PT | 7 pm MT | 8 pm CT | 9 pm ET.
I’ll be teaching and sharing; you’ll be listening and writing (and drinking wine or cocoa/commuting/hiding from your children). This year, the AUDIO ONLY calls will be recorded and posted in our online Headquarters on Monday mornings. I'll be hosting a Zoom listening party on Tuesday evenings for those who want to gather live! We'll connect for a bit on video + in the chat and then complete the call together. Join us for the listening party or listen on your own schedule. Either way works! There's plenty of women who don't even start their "HoCo" work until January.
- December 5 : Releasing + Renewing 2023 So You Can Welcome in a Fresh New Year
- December 12: Dreaming + Scheming for a Magical + Meaningful 2024
- December 19: Plotting + Planning to Create a Personalized Action Plan for 2024
Once you register, you’ll get immediate access to the 2023 Holiday Council Workbook to use during the calls and to complete your challenges in between. You can either print out your PDF worksheets (getting them printed + bound at a Staples/Kinkos works perfectly) or fill them out online!
I'm also providing a "HoCo in Action" workbook for those of you who want to utilize our quarterly review + planning calls, as well as a monthly check in for self-accountability. I plan on printing out both workbooks + getting them bound together in the same spiral notebook!
You’ll refer to these worksheets full of personal reflections all year long as you plan out passion projects, hard conversations, travel, new habits and prioritizing your desires.
I know, because I definitely do.
You’ll get immediate access to 10 years of HoCo Interviews with the fabulous people listed below. It's a diverse mix of powerhouse humans who all share a passion for living their purpose. Hearing each of their stories about how they reflect back + plan forward will remind you that there are no “right” ways to go about crafting and living a meaningful, joyful, lit up life. We each have to figure out what works for us!
How cool would it be to get love-filled text messages from me with specific reminders about your word of the year + ways of being? Checking in on your goals? Always magically timed to give you a lift right when you need it?
I'll send 2 per month. Here are some examples full of emojis + capital letters 'cause that's how my 43 year old self texts. 😂
Yes, these are totally the text messages I received from myself in 2023... My theme was Uncharted + my goals were Uncharted Marriage, Uncharted Expression, + Uncharted Presence. My "ways of being" were Creatrix, In Love, Generous, Colorful + Resourced.
Once you fill out the form at the end of HoCo -- I'll know your theme, WOB, and goals so I can text you too!
If you’re ready to dive into your own life with compassionate awareness, align with your true potential by dreaming your ass off, and set yourself up for success in the New Year — this 21 day exploration is for you.
Registration Closes In...

Together, we’ll release + renew, dream + scheme, and plot + plan.

Loved tonight’s call! This Holiday Council process is already eye-opening and empowering.
Is this for you?
Set aside your hesitations, your busyness, your fear, your disillusionment, your exhaustion for one moment.
What if this is your chance to release + renew + remagic?
I'm not promising there won't be ups + downs + uncertainty in 2024 -- but I am saying identifying deliberate ways to feel + deliberate ways take action in your life helps remind you of your capacity to thrive no matter the conditions.
This is for YOU if you're ready to trust your own desires.
This is for YOU if you see value in a clear process + welcoming space to do the work.
This is for YOU if want to ownership of the parts of your world that you can control + peace with the parts you cannot.
This is for YOU if it's time to adjust your energy + attitude instead of staying stuck in overwhelm + frustration + fear.
Own those beliefs, sister.
Live that life.
The Holiday Council process I’ll lead you through for 3 weeks will remind you of your immense capability + ability to remagic your life through awareness, alignment + action. It's full of hope + inspiration, while staying grounded in reality.
Awareness is the incredibly powerful skill of listening to yourself. It's tuning into your own wisdom + becoming aware of what has gone right, what has gone wrong, and what your wisest self is craving. Awareness is the difference between a year that feels beyond your control and one that feels like you’re aligning with your true potential!
Alignment is the connection between what you truly care about + where you focus your resources. Your personal resources of time, energy, + money are precious + must be deliberately harnessed. And yes! Sometimes this means facing the truth on how you are using distractions (social media, TV, alcohol, perfectionism, busyness) in your life.
Action is taking step after step in honor of your vision. Sometimes the action will be big, bold and life-changing. Other times it will be small daily choices to be uncomfortable and to do things that are scary. One thing I know? Action requires a rock solid connection to your “why" and clear vision of where you want to be.
Awareness, Alignment and Action take time.
They require space to notice, time to process, and the audacity to trust yourself.
That’s what we do together during HoCo — create sacred time + space for you to connect to your own wisdom, bravery + “why”.
Holiday Council is the best money I spend on myself all year. It’s a commitment to myself to check in and process the past year and plan for the next. I am guaranteed to have a few “ah-ha” moments that impact my life in really meaningful ways. Tears and laughter and support from and to the other ladies in the group; I can’t wait for December.
Molly has designed the perfect outlet for self-awareness and reflection during one of the busiest seasons of the year. Having a gentle guide and a supportive community is just what I need to look back at what I’ve accomplished and then, focus on what’s next. I anticipate this tradition with excitement and end up feeling a lightness and hopefulness when I’m done.
Last year was my first year doing Holiday Council with Molly and the Stratejoy community. It came after a tough year and prepared me for another tough year ahead. It was my anchor and life raft in the midst of a very big storm. I already know that Holiday Council will become an annual self-love 3 weeks for me every year. I can’t imagine life without it.
I loved every minute of Holiday Council. Inspiring with a wonderful community of women!
Additional Details and FAQs
It’s hard to get over how much of an impact the planning processes from HoCo have impacted my life! Before HoCo, I thought the idea working for myself was pipe dream that would never, ever happen. I thought it was fanciful and unrealistic and no one would ever hop on board with my ideas. But over the past few weeks I’ve been sharing what I’ve been working on with others and have been overwhelmed by support. I’m almost in tears writing this because I can’t believe that this might actually happen! I could never be in this place without the awesomeness of Stratejoy and the Holiday Council in my life. Thank you!
The Holiday Council was amazing. The insightful questions Molly asked gave me access to parts of myself I had been keeping in hiding. I have never before sat down at the end of the year and assessed how everything went and why. I have never before been so intentional at the beginning of the year, figuring out how I want to be and what I want to pursue. And the support, love, encouragement, and ideas from the other women in HoCo were priceless. It was wonderful to feel such a sense of community, inclusivity, and camaraderie with women from all over world. I think Molly just might have made a lifetime HoCoette out of me!
I’m hoping to share a couple early achievements that are shaping my this year into the year I want it to be. To get back in touch with myself, I completed a 21-day yoga challenge, feeling that I’ve now turned this into a habit. Yay! And to write my own story, I am moving to NYC this summer. I will either by attending NYU (fingers crossed) or working in the charter school system — 3 interviews done, 2 to go. Holiday Council has empowered me in so many ways to shape this year into everything I want and need it to be. Thank you, Molly, and all of you out there for joining in this journey and celebration!
Loving the Stratejoy Holiday Council. Definitely one of my best investments of the year!
Tapestry : Yearlong Stratejoy Community
I'm so ready for our yearly tradition of gathering to Release, Renew, + Remagic. 2023 has been quite the year of "Uncharted" for me + I'm ready to discover what is next. I can't wait to see what is next for you, too!
And I'm SO excited to stay connected all year for those of you who choose to continue with Tapestry-- our new year long community space. Creating this online home is something you've been asking me for + 2024 was finally the year to kick it off. Tapestry isn't another program full of content; it's a way to stay connected to your intentions for the year AND to each other.
Tapestry is something we will be creating together this year + is only available to those who participate in Holiday Council. We'll be using Heartbeat for our online gathering space: there is both an app for your phone + desktop version available. You can join now (please do! It is so helpful to me!) but it will be available as an upgrade through January 15th when we officially start. You're welcome to join anytime between now + then.
Tapestry is $350 for the year + there is a 10 month no-penalty payment plan available.
In Tapestry, we will be trying different ways of supporting ourselves + our intentions by
- Continuing many of our Stratejoyland online traditions: 4B's, Book Club, Goal Updates, Shake + Sits, Bragasauras, Witnessing, New Moon Card Pulls
- Bringing some of our beloved Camp practices into the online world: Wall of Love, Story Share, Community Offerings
- Using some of the lessons from the Joy work we've been doing to create measurable personal experiments around our WOBs + Theme
- Gathering on Zoom monthly with me for Circles + Goal Progress
- Offering opportunities for Interest (Writers? Mamas? Queer? Witches? Entrepreneurs?) or Location Based Subgroups
- Creating an alternative to social media for connection, witnessing, exploration, sharing of wins, and ALL the feels
2024 will be a Tapestry experiment to see if gathering in this way adds to our lives in measurable, positive ways! I need you to help us find out!
Looking forward to dreaming + scheming + continuing the inspiration throughout 2024 with you, friend.
