  • Every woman makes a great living doing work that makes her come alive and is acknowledged for her contribution to the world.

  • Every woman has the power to cultivate freedom, well-being, wealth, meaning, and joy for herself, her community, and the people and causes she chooses to serve.
“I’m in the strategist’s chair everyday in my own business, and what I really needed was someone who could give me what I give to my clients: wise, supportive strategy. Working with Cigdem has been one of the smartest investments I’ve made.”
JAC McNEIL, Co-Active Coach & Thought Partner
"I would have never been able to do on my own all the deep digging that Cigdem guided me through. My business is now booming in all directions. Great new clients, speaking gigs, teaching, art. I also get a lot of good feedback about my site. I'm so happy!”

Start Writing
“After participating in Cigdem’s writing groups, my way of thinking about certain challenges and obstacles in my life has shifted. And I’ve developed a new mental approach and attitude to deal with them. This program is an opportunity to put yourself first for a change.”
LEERAY COSTA, Professor of Cultural Anthropology & Social Justice Advocate
“This program provides a huge opening to explore and navigate my own thoughts and then create from them. The prompts never fail to start a good, little tornado of muses and reflections, forming the words that get put down. In some ways, it is the combination of the weekly activities that sets this program apart from others. Writing and life coming together so beautifully.”
