“Drop-in” Mastermind Workshops & Intentional Community for seasoned entrepreneurs

~Join us in 2019 for BRANDING with AUTHENTICITY & HEART: Creating an online and offline presence  that is 100% YOU)~

“Our journey as conscious entrepreneurs is to give birth to the best that is within us and to come into the highest expression of who we are. Our calling is to cultivate an unwavering allegiance to self, to serve in a way that nourishes us, to create work that is in alignment with our heartfelt desires and to be 100% true to ourselves.”  This is what UNLEASHING means to me.  Renee Trudeau


Unleashed ATX: “The conversations you wish you were having.”

What if you could drop into a beautiful, inspiring, supportive space every two months, connect with creative, like-minded entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds in a juicy, relaxed “salon” type environment and engage deeply around rich, meaningful themes that nourish and ignite your business, heart and soul? What if this community was being created for you, right now, in Austin, TX?

The invitation & details:

  • You’re invited to step away from your office and join us Fridays from 2-5 p.m at cool venues around Austin, TX, for UNLEASHED: Mastermind Workshop for Empowered Entrepreneurs. These creative, soulful, innovative bimonthly mastermind workshops will be held in Austin throughout 2018. There will be a different theme each time; these are “drop in” experiences-come to all the workshops or just the ones that call to you.
  • January Theme: BRANDING with AUTHENTICITY & HEART: Creating a stunning web site, marketing materials and an online presence that is 100% YOU)~
  • This new intentional community is for women who have been employed for at least 5-7 years–please do not register unless you meet this criteria.Read FAQ’s here.
  • Based on the Unleashed small group experience I led last year, we’ll embrace a “mastermind” format and leverage the power of group think through dyads, small group inquiry &  large group sharing. Come as you are–whether you’re on your third business, scaling back, in transition or growing!
  • Never heard of a mastermind group? Read more about why they’re so powerful. Ours will be a “guided” theme-driven, structured mastermind–the flow will be fun, interactive, reflective and you’ll be challenged to explore new ways of being.
  • Our gatherings will have a “salon-like” make-up (multi-generational, public and private sector leaders, creative, soulful women from various corners of Austin: art/culture, healthcare/wellness, business, real estate, media, coaching/consulting, law/finance, journalists/authors, inventors, etc. ).
  • These interactive mastermind workshops will provide a space AND community for women to connect who like to speak their truth, get real, are not afraid of being seen/vulnerable, who like to take risks, who love to tap into the power of collaboration as they birth their individual ideas/vision and honor our Sisterhood (read more).
  • Workshop themes may include topics such as Cultivating Discernment: How to Become Your Own Business Advisor, UNLEASHED: Being Visible: Marketing Your Business from the Inside-Out; Big Magic: How Do YOU Bring Ideas to Fruition; Cultivating Discernment: Using Our Energy Wisely; Harnessing & Leveraging Our Power (and what the heck that means); Creating Magical Partnership & Collaborations and more.

Why I created this community:

Since entering my fifties, I have been in deep meditation around, “What is mine to do next and how am I best meant to serve?” In January 2017 I was called to unleash my talents/gifts in a way that deeply supports self-employed women in Central Texas. After a highly-successful 14-year career as a communications executive and leadership/organizational change expert, I launched my first business, Career Strategists, in 1999. From there I have grown two sister global coaching/consulting firms, written three books and created a publishing company. For more than 17 years, I had the privilege of coaching thousands of professionals and business owners in coming into greater alignment.  Today, it’s my greatest joy to share what I’ve learned over the past two decades as a conscious entrepreneur and to hold a space for other women to shine big and bright (read Sisterhood). It would be honored to support you on your journey. Hmmm, what else about me? Many are surprised to learn I love cooking a big pot of butternut squash soup for my family and neighbors just as much as I enjoy going to India to speak at a Women in Technology Conference. I’m a compassionate, cause-driven ENTJ, the oldest of seven children and have been actively involved in women’s and girl’s empowerment since 1988.  My son (gulp) is a sophomore in high school and my husband, a software guy, is a die-hard member of the Austin Samba School (Brazilian band).  ~  Renee

UNLEASHED FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)


Feedback on Renée’s teaching/facilitation style:

“Renee’s guidance and coaching had an enormous impact on my business. She has the midas touch–her ability to hold space for what was possible for us was invaluable. She challenged me, but in nurturing way, and helped me connect with my Wise Self–my ultimate business advisor. We wouldn’t be where we are today without her support! —Patty, management consultant

“Renee attracts the most amazing women to her circles–soulful, creative, brilliant, generous and heart-centered. Many of the women I have met through her coaching groups are now some of my closest friends. She is a magnet for feminine power!”–Ellen, landscape designer

“If Renee offers a women’s group (rare, given her travel schedule)–grab a spot! Her wise and deep presence create an incubator and environment where incredible shifts and transformation are possible. She is masterful at group facilitation and has a way of balancing visionary strategic advice with warm, caring support. She’s played a huge role in my personal/spiritual evolution.” Rachel, parenting educator

“The thing that I loved most about your mastermind sessions were the rich, deep themes and being asked to reflect on these topics throughout the whole month. I also really benefited from the monthly (optional) homework and having a support buddy. Hearing the sharing from such a fantastic group of women was an added bonus.”  Marie, real estate company owner

“Your mastermind sessions challenged me to step out of the day to day routine of my business and get a bigger picture– both of what is going on now and where I want to go. It was enormously beneficial to have you hold the space for me to question what is working, what’s not working and how important it is to create monthly time to pause, reflect and take the 30,000 foot view.”  Gina, divorce attorney

“Thank you for the space, guidance, and opportunity to reflect and plan.  I am more energized around my work than I have been in months. Meeting this unknown group of entrepreneurs and the way Renee guided us through the powerful themes was life-changing for me. The topics you chose were individually enlightening – and – in retrospect – so complimentary. Fantastic job!” Susan, wellness clinic owner

“Not what I expected but SO what I needed! Thank you for a rich, supportive experience and for walking the walk. This mastermind workshop was insightful, inspiring, reflective and the connection I experienced with the other women was so powerful. I felt so much less alone and was able to be more compassionate with myself after these monthly meetings.” Ella, psychologist/relationship coach                                                                  Read more feedback here.
