Read what You First alumni have to say about their experience…

I arrived at the leadership summit feeling overwhelmed by the demands of my career and personal life. After spending five days with Mindy Mackenzie and her team, I left transformed and empowered in a way I could have never imagined. It was the best investment of time and money that I have spent in my career.

The You First Summit is a transformational leadership experience that has forever enriched me as a leader and human being. Mindy has invested her hard-earned wisdom, heart and soul into creating a dynamic and entertaining journey of self-reflection and development for a select group of women professionals. As a result of the experience, I have a deeper understanding of how to optimally live and lead. As a bonus, I left the experience with a new tribe of incredible women who have become trusted advisors and life-long friends. I encourage any female leader to jump at the opportunity to be part of this one-of-a-kind experience.

The “You First” summit was a life-changing investment with lasting impact. Mindy has a unique ability to help people find their purpose and passion through a week-long experiential journey. I brought home with me, concrete new practices to incorporate into my daily life that have helped me be an even stronger leader in my own life, and in my career. An added bonus is that I now have an amazing group of women who stay in touch, providing on-going encouragement well beyond the week we spent together. I highly recommend this leadership summit to anyone looking to increase their impact in their life and career!

“The experience provided a staggering diversity of tools, ideas, and processes to unlock insight. Perhaps the most valuable dimension, though, was the time, space, and community within which to deeply personalize, metabolize, and integrate what I learned. I loved the environment of acceptance, safety and deep respect for one another. I loved the ‘stay in your lane’ guardrail, and I loved the truth telling. I would recommend the summit to anyone who is on a personal journey and open-minded and open-hearted about the outcome. Humility feels vital here. Also, kindness.”

“I had the most transformational experience. The deep knowledge I gained about myself and the insight into what I need to do prioritize myself were the most beneficial lessons. I came in assuming my stress, unhappiness and lack of fulfillment were all attributable to my job. Through Mindy’s guidance, the exercises, the shared experiences with other amazing women, I was able to pull back the layers and look inward for the first time ever. I loved so many things…connecting with other incredible, loving, supporting women was so soul boosting and something I really underestimated how powerful it would be. The sessions with Dr. Abby and Mindy gave me a plan I can sustain. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend You First!”

“The personalized attentiveness of the You First team made this summit immeasurably valuable. The sequence and content of the summit provided a growth opportunity that allowed me to address and resolve my fundamental needs to be the best leader and to live a life of fulfillment and joy. The value of the relationship with other leaders going through the same process is priceless. This summit is an inflection point that has changed my life. I am forever grateful.”

“The You First Summit was truly a life-changing event that came into my life at exactly the right time for me. From the moment we entered the room Mindy created a sense of positive light and energy. Each day brought new revelations and insights. I came into the summit thinking I had to ‘fix’ my marriage, my job, etc. and walked away realizing it was me who needed ‘fixing’. The group of women who were curated especially for this summit were nothing short of spectacular. I will never forget this tribe of powerful, empathetic and warm women. I would without hesitation recommend this summit to other women in my network.”
