Behind The Scenes

ACADEMY

In 2020, old structures and ways of being are crumbling.

The world is desperate for individuals who are willing to help create and lead in the new paradigm...through being themselves.

Are you feeling the call to finally pursuing the dream, working on the project, showing up for the impact and income they want to create?

If so, it’s time to expand your leadership … own your voice … Create your impact…

Here's Your Opportunity

🙌🏾  Learn to create success on your own terms without sacrificing your values, identity, or expression

🙌🏾 *Sustain* greater levels of success 

 

🙌🏾  Firm up those boundaries (probably some you hadn’t even through of) so that you can expand your capacity to lead more, receive more, have more, and influence more

 

🙌🏾  Reclaim your voice, embody your power, get right with your money, and step into being the CEO of your life!

🙌🏾  A community of women [cis, trans, nonbinary] leading in a revolutionary way that is true to your uniqueness and inspires leadership of those around you SO THAT you can normalize taking bold brave action that expands you + leads to collective empowerment in your communities

🙌🏾  Experience freedom in your life: of your time, of what you can do with money, scaling your impact and more!

Let Go Of...

👉🏾 Personal development industry norms where systemic oppression is baked into the ways of doing business, coaching, and shaming people into “success.” Align your leadership with your values without replicating systemic oppression.

👉🏾 The feeling that you’re not safe outside of your specific demographic or group. Learn to carry your safety within you no matter what space you walk into.

👉🏾 The issue of having what feels like success once, then never being able to recreate it / sustain it ever again

👉🏾 PERFECTIONISM IN YOUR LEADERSHIP (oh 👀 did I mean to type all caps? YES) Buh bye 👋🏾

👉🏾 Feeling held back by your fears of “failure,” success, living from your intuition, etc. When fear does not stop you, you are UNSTOPPABLE.

Meet Your

Behind The Scenes

QUEEN👑

Hey beautiful. I’m Lisa Dennen-Young (she/her). I serve as an intuitive sound healer and lifestyle coach. As the 1st WOC to graduate as a forensic linguist in the United States and the descendant of the civil rights leaders in North Carolina, I know intimately what it means to be on the forefront of leading change within myself and in larger communities.

 

I have earned my former Fortune 500 clients millions within minutes at trade shows, have spoken and performed my art in front of 14,000+ in multiple languages, and traveled the world for a decade training groups on cross-cultural communication, equity, and human connection across professional, romantic, and interpersonal relationships...

 

In this time I’d gained behind-the-scenes access to well-known leaders in their industries: grammy award winning producers, Oscar winners, directors & actors, athletes, tech startup leads, politicians & activists, Joe Biden, cultural icons, multimillion dollar CEOs and more. No one is showing what it takes to BE the kind of leaders with such great influence and cultural capital. Now I’m taking you behind the scenes so that you can learn your own path to this kind of success.

I only learned to incorporate these teachings into my own life with mentorship and support.

#normalizethejourney

I used to sit still in fear of moving too much for someone around me. I shut my voice down because my presence was already offensive so I could never imagine taking up any more space with my words. I used to run myself into the ground because if I wasn’t working I wasn’t worth anything. I used to try to know everything and win all the awards as compensation for it. I had always been afraid … afraid to be loved, afraid to make money, afraid to marry, afraid to fail, afraid to thrive, afraid to disappoint, afraid to be vulnerable, afraid to use my voice, and ultimately afraid to be seen…as ME. 

 

I’ve spent the last 7 years making fear so sexy that the scary thing becomes more seductive than your status quo. Together, with the support of community, you too can step into your unique version of leadership.
 

I've gotten to where I am now — sharing myself vulnerably knowing it is the REAL strength, getting on Facebook live videos with great ease, claiming and living my desires, setting my boss boundaries, co-creating an incredibly liberating marriage, building a biz expressing my WHOLE myself, and decolonizing my mind, body, spirit and biz — because of support. Mentors pointing out blindspots, energy workers providing healing, surrounded in supportive community, and accountability to keep me on track, and celebrating every step of the way!

💥 Get rid of any money mindset toxicity your industry taught you. 

💥 This is a place where you can be with ALL of you! Reclaim your quirks, attitudes, opinions, body parts, and/or personality flavors that were once deemed unworthy/not good or valuable. In the Academy we know these parts are the exact parts needing liberation for you to lead in a way that shares your greatest gifts.

💥 BTSA is designed for you to easily apply all modules and lessons to each area of your life with greater ease so that your visibility and increased impact does not come at the expense of love, your health, family, and lifestyle. You do not need to suffer into your success.

💥 This program starts the week of October 19 and ends in late January. This means you have my support + the support of the community to start your new year in your most YOU leadership yet! (With lots of R&R time between!)

Lisa Story.jpg

“Since working with Lisa Dennen-Young I have experienced huge shifts of energy around business and money. Opportunities are flowing with momentum and ease unlike what I’ve experienced before. I have several influencers and a huge e-commerce company reaching out asking me to help them with their email copy, and new clients wanting to hire me to help them with lead generation. In another business I run, cash flow and business have dramatically improved. I'm so grateful to Lisa and her work, she is truly gifted.”

Jennifer Gardner

"From just a 10-minute coaching session, Lisa helped me clear What was in the way for me to offer my most popular offering yet. This yielded a new pipeline of business that is helping me flourish even in this economic downturn.”

SARAH LIGHTFOOT

“I wasn’t getting signups for my challenge and graphics are NOT my thing. Lisa gave me some major tweaks and I ended up with over 70 people registered for my challenge and now at $14,000 in sales for this launch!”

RENEE REESE

“I loved the embodiment exercises - especially how much more I could learn about others from movement and eye contact vs just words...I also loved the core thesis of letting your own light shine to allow others to do the same... it gave me new perspective to deepen that practice. AND you’re an absolute light that’s full of love and magic and it’s absolutely palpable in everything you do and touch.” 

MERIEM BEKKA

“When I met Lisa, I was transitioning from practicing medicine to coaching. I was having difficulty stepping into this new leadership role because of concerns about what others would think of me. I was afraid to speak my truth and share my voice because I have always considered myself a shy person. I was trying to figure out what people wanted so I could make myself marketable instead of trusting that people wanted what I had to offer. 

I now see that I am my brand. My true self and vulnerable expression is what people want. That is the magic and the magnet. 

Lisa helped me managing the fear and anxiety of expressing myself. She helped me gain clarity around my true identity and what it is I want to offer.  Lisa helped me get to a place of feeling worthy of receiving.

She showed me by her example that a successful business can also include self care, ease, fun and pleasure. Thank you Lisa!”

Renee Hilliard, MD

No. Make a choice to show up and you will experience the shifts. These training modules will be available to you indefinitely. Get what you need when you need it, and trust that the rest will come.




When does the program start and how do I get on the live community calls?


Official kickoff date is the week of 10/19. Our live calls are on Wednesdays at 12pm PT, starting on Oct. 21st and will run live weekly for the next 15 weeks (with 3 weeks off in between.) Calls will happen over Zoom video conference (easy to install on any device if you don’t already have it) and will be recorded so that you don’t miss a thing!




What is the time commitment?


Live calls are 90min, plus modules, videos + integration exercises may take up to 1 hour / week, based on how much time you decide to spend with them. This is designed to be super flexible so you can get exactly what you need when you need it. We recommend showing up to the calls for healing and coaching as priority. You'll have lifetime access to the content and modules.




What if I cannot join live?


All good! We have recordings of every call, + you have unlimited FB group access to ask your questions and get them answered + receive laser coaching.




It’s hard for me to speak up in groups. How will my voice be heard?


Being in groups can feel overwhelming. In accordance with my values, is my duty & honor to maintain a sense of equity in voice and expression during the live calls. It is of the utmost importance to me to personally ensure that all voices are heard, perspectives considered, and experiences valued. I am a fierce protector and will fight for your sense of safety in any space I create. There are many ways that I work to ensure this and bring all voices, including prioritizing the most marginalized voices among us and understanding / appreciating varying communication styles of the more introverted among us. If you want you speak your voice into the group, it is also your responsibility to receive my invitation to do it.




What are the terms & conditions?


Absolutely! View our Terms & Conditions HERE. You'll be agreeing to this once you submit your payment.




Who is this for?

I’m not a business owner / entrepreneur / trying to do the business thing. Can I still join?


All good! You don’t need to be. The business-specific content will enlighten you whether you’re the owner of the company where you've worked (worked with) or not. AND on the live calls we coach around any and all questions that come up, regardless of the week's content. You still will get exactly what you need in this program.




I'm an introvert and disappear in groups. Wondering if I'll get the support I need.


I love supporting introverts. Both the content and the coaching style is designed to meet you, ambiverts, extroverts, and also many personality/communication/energetic types where they are. You may feel a lot of things in the coaching spaces I facilitate, but you will NEVER feel outcast or lost in the crowd. Period. This is my personal guarantee.




I am disabled. How does this program support me?


Thank you for asking! During the program we will have transcriptions of ALL recorded content (including of the Zoom calls). You are welcome to speak, type, sign your questions into our private Facebook group [which everyone in BTSA will have unlimited access to]. We are open to meeting other disability needs if and as they come up.
