the virtual wall of
During a time in my life when the world seemed to be spinning faster than I could grasp, Molly showed me how to slow down and savor the moment. She helped me rediscover my true dreams and, in a way, meet the real me for the first time.
Through my work with Molly, I have created a life filled with passion and fun. I am truly aware of my wants, needs and values. I have set real, measurable goals that I KNOW I can achieve.
And, most importantly, I now have the confidence, attitude and tools to never sell myself short from living the life I deserve. Looking back, I am so proud of how far I’ve come and I know that I couldn’t have made a better investment.
My journey with Stratejoy began because I wanted to “go, decide, produce, push”. As a newly minted entrepreneur with a lot of ideas, I was anxious to improve my efficiency and get things moving!
Little did I know these weeks would totally alter my outlook.
The support system we created, and the reflection you encouraged combined to soften and strengthen me in a big, big way.
I’m not much for asking for help, acknowledging my wishes and feelings, or slowing down with intention, but thanks to Molly and Stratejoy, I’ve been learning how to do all three.
Molly came into my life at a time when an unsatisfying and defeating job had me feeling worthless and unmotivated.
After working with Molly, not only did I have a specific direction to take my new job search in, I was enthusiastic about the process and more confident in my abilities and myself than I ever had been before.
Molly provided me with accountability and helped me to create a constructive and active learning and development plan. She pushed me to ask and answer the right kinds of questions to help me learn about myself; who I am, what makes me smile and what I need in a job and career in order to feel motivated, happy and fulfilled.
Molly is proof that bubbles and brain really do mix. And she’s full of capital “L” Love.
Molly is an instant dose of sunshine, and I especially love her because she keeps it just as real as she does sparkly. Whether a course or a conversation, I love that I can trust Molly to inspire me with actual actionable ideas as well as to call me out when I try to hide behind excuses or fears. You need someone in your corner who’s just as real as she is brilliant, who’s as human as she is genius — Molly is so totally this person.
Molly is sparkles and sunshine mixed with a healthy dose of grounded wisdom.
Her perspective on life and how to live it best is inspiring, fully of joy, and deliciously practical.
Part best gal pal, part brilliant therapist, part tough love mentor, Molly is the girl to optimize your life.
In 2010, I hit some seriously bumpy times. I had no idea what it was that I was going through, only that I was going through something profound and unraveling. Molly’s combination of patience and compassion drew me out. She has given me something that I never could have given myself: self-compassion and acceptance. I’m alright with who I am. I’m really alright with where I am. One of the most influential people that I have to thank for my profound transformation is Molly.
Having other women out there who are experiencing the same things and cheering each other on has been a huge source of comfort and confidence for me.
Stuck in my business, I found Molly so very helpful in giving me great new strategy ideas. I loved the support and accountability of other kick-butt gals in the Stratejoy community.
Molly is an excellent, joyful leader who combines the rare traits of firm motivation with compassion to inspire you to be your best self. If you are looking to juice up your life with a kick, I highly recommend Molly.
The key for me to taking my business to the next level is having Molly Mahar as my business mentor. She won’t let you play small if you need to be playing big! What works for me is Molly’s understanding of insecurity and doubt around your business desires. I can comfortably express my feelings, be held accountable and come away with a solid plan.
She is there to celebrate your success and navigate the bumpy road with you!

The tools Molly has given me have been amazing at helping me get really clear on what I want my work life to look like.
I’ve gained confidence in my opinions and I am still continuing the journey of discovering what path I want to take. This has been the perfect jumping-off point for me.
Molly is the business-savvy mentor with the bubbly older-sister personality that I never had!
Stratejoy provided me with a safe space to declare my intentions and seek support along the way. Not only has my confidence increased dramatically but the work I did with Molly resulted in huge accomplishments.
Never have I ever met someone who was able to motivate me as much as Molly.
The girl has such a genuinely happy and energetic spirit that she can turn any dreary day into one full of sunshine.
Molly is wise, grounded and talented, which you want in a coach — but it is her inspired zest for life that will have you beaming as you dig deep to design your own joy-filled path.
Molly is a firecracker exploding with inspiration, motivation, professional illumination, and tips for living a soulful, open-hearted, fulfilling life.
Before I started working with Molly, I was feeling super stuck and unmotivated. I wasn’t quite sure why I was doing any of the stuff I was doing anymore… to say that I was lacking purpose is an understatement.
Fast-forward three short months, and purpose is like my new middle name! I feel totally inspired, and the faith that Molly has in me has really helped me build up the confidence I need in order to go after my dreams – in a totally practical, but totally big way.
Exhausted, disoriented, and having mixed feelings about my stay-at-home-momness–even 2 1/2 years post giving birth–was when I contacted Molly. I wanted so badly to see some light and feel like a connected, contributing, confident woman and mother instead of the intimidated blob I’d become, but had no clue how to get there.
Almost immediately, I felt a shift in my energy, a newfound sense of purpose and direction, more joy, peace, gratitude. There’s so much more space in my life after Molly.
For over a year, I felt dissatisfied with my professional life / business. I didn’t feel successful, didn’t know what I wanted and was desperate to figure out what I was missing. I ended up hiring Molly and have not looked back.
She helped me define success for myself, figure out what excites me, and what my strengths are. And in the end, which direction to take my business. I could not give a higher recommendation. She helped me get out of my brain and move forward in my life and business.
Molly is a sparkling blend of joyous positivity, wit and life hacking.
Molly’s one of those women who you wanna hate because she’s so smart and does such great work and has the cutest babies on the planet… and then you meet her and she’s nicer than she appears (if that’s possible!) and then you’re all, “I looooooooove that Molly Mahar!” This happened to me, and it’s a definite guarantee that it’s gonna happen to you, too. This is a threat/promise.
Every time I get a little Molly in my life, my attitude is instantly changed–I can’t help but transform into a grinning, life-lovin’ hippie child. I sometimes wonder what the neighbors may think, when I’m on a call with her–all that hootin’ and hollerin’, they probably think I’m doing something much naughtier. Fortunately for me, I’m not. Am I saying that Molly is better than sex? WHY YES, I AM.
Molly has a heart of pure brilliant gold, mixed with the perfect blend of curiosity, business savvy and life experience to help you get wherever it is you want to go — with confidence, clarity and peace of mind. She’s kind and caring, but isn’t afraid to lovingly tell it like it is.
Every interaction I have with Molly leaves me inspired, uplifted and full of actionable ideas.
My work with Molly revealed the deeply passionate girl living inside of me, but most importantly she showed me that most vital relationship I have is the one with myself.
Before I worked with Molly, I was a bit unfocused. I had so many ideas and directions that I wanted to pursue, but I wasn’t getting anywhere with any of them. Molly really encouraged me to focus on what was next instead of what would stick to forever.If you’re thinking about working with Molly and you’re willing to do the hard work, then I’d definitely recommend it.
Molly won’t find your passion for you, but she’ll help you ask the right questions to build a plan for yourself.
After becoming a mom last summer I wasn’t really sure what to do with my business or how to take the next step balancing life as a working mom.
Molly helped me come to a crystal clear definition of what I wantedmy business and life to look like, post baby.
The other members of Stratejoy were also fabulous and held me accountable to weekly goals and checkpoints. I walked away with a clear itemized three month to do list. It was just what I needed.
My work with Molly began because I had plans to quit my 9-5 and pursue my coaching business full-time within 3 months. With Molly’s guidance, support, and encouragement I was able to create a structured plan, develop rock-star confidence, and actually follow through with it all.
The friendships I made with the other ladies in through Stratejoy was definitely the cherry on top. Only 6 months later and my business has grown by over 600%. My business wouldn’t be what it is today if it weren’t for Molly!
Working on yourself is never straightforward or all that easy, but Molly gives you a road map for self-discovery and she works to make it fun along the way.
When I found Molly and Stratejoy, I needed to talk about my life with people who would understand what it means to do the work. It was liberating to discuss my dreams and goals with like-minded people who encouraged each other like crazy. Now I know my action plan is in line with what I want for myself, for my career and for my life.
I’m a personal development junkie – I read all the books, take all the courses, and follow the blogs but few have pushed me to take actionable steps toward my passion work like Molly has. Not only is she brimming with valuable, actionable advice specific to your situation, but she’s also caring, connected and incredibly supportive.
My goal was to step over the line from the corporate world to starting my journey as an entrepreneur. With Molly’s guidance, asking the questions you never thought to ask yourself and getting to the nuts and bolts of what your business is about, I am so excited to say that I achieved my goals!
What I found through work with Molly was a supportive environment, a new sense of introspection, and the realization that I wasn’t alone in feeling lost sometimes. Molly helped me get back in touch with the things that make me truly happy in life.
Whenever I’m doubting myself and my abilities, I think, “What would Molly tell me to do?” And, without fail, the answer kicks my ass in gear. I can’t thank her enough for all of her help and guidance with my Life Less Bullshit brand; it’s thanks to our coaching that I was finally able to articulate what I want and how to go from where I am now to where I want to be. She helped me clarify my big picture, and gave me the confidence to do the impossible: get up and speak in front of 1,000+ people.
My path from wannabe writer to published author? A little luck, a little hard work, and a whole lot of Stratejoy. Molly’s coaching style is the perfect combination of spontaneous enthusiasm and “big-picture” vision. Not only did she motivate me to actually finish my book, but it also helped me build a roadmap for my long term writing goals.
A year after working with Molly, I had two multi-book deals with two major New York publishers. A big thank you to Stratejoy for helping me not just follow my dreams, but also see them through!
When I first came across Stratejoy, I was absolutely impressed that so many young women where taking the brave journey to live an authentic life. I often wondered where my life would be if I would have done the same in my twenties. What Molly and others discussed resonated so deeply, but I wondered if I could really go down this path in my forties.
I felt my life was so entrenched with certain responsibilities and obligations that there was no room for a big change. Deciding to work with Molly was one of the best decisions I had made for myself in a long time. She provided me with the tools and clarity to reconnect with my values and more importantly, myself again. She helped me learn how to make the time for self reflection and held me accountable to act on the change I desired so desperately. With her guidance, I have not only been able to create a more authentic and joyful life for myself, but for those around me.
Through my work with Molly, I was able to narrow down exactly what I wanted out of a career and was able to plan a strategy to make it happen
Working with Molly has been a life changing experience for me. For a while, I felt as though I was wandering aimlessly around my own life. With no clear understanding of who I was or what I wanted, I reached out to Molly for the guidance I was so desperately seeking. Without guilt, shame, fear, or embarrassment, Molly allowed me to think and dream big – bigger than I ever allowed myself before.
Her approach forced me to dig deep into the uncomfortable places in order to overcome the cloud of self-doubt I was living under. I am truly deserving of happiness and joy, and without Molly, it would have taken me much longer to realize this.
With hard work, dedication, and Molly’s unending support and encouragement, I am more confident and feel as though I am capable of anything.
