The Women of Hot Pink YOUniversity

Women Igniting... Unapologetic, Bold with a Sprinkle of Sassy!

Ann Murgatroyd-Soe and Christie Gause-Bemis

Authors of Ignite Your Life, Live Life with Passion, Purpose and Play, and Co-Creators of Hot Pink YOUniversity.

Women leaders, dreamers and doers...this is a call to action!  The women, we are a-rising!  Learn how you can throw your hat in the ring and add your voice to the collective conscious we are experiencing...from the MeToo disclosures of brave women to the speech by Oprah at the Golden Globes...we are riding the wave of this energy to create lasting change without losing our connection to our unique femininity.

Two bodacious broads teaching women to live a life they desire now!  As psychotherapists, Ann and Christie have created tools and techniques to take women from overwhelm and disconnect to live out loud and on fire.


Women Rising:  And Let's Take the Men With US

Shana James

Creator of Man Alive Podcast and CEO of Shana James Coaching

Women are rising up, finding our voices and raising the bar on our expectations for salary, being noticed for our worth and being treated with love and respect.  We are coming into power as a conscious collective.  You can feel it!

So, where do the men fit in with all of this?  How can the men who have respected and loved women all along-treated them with that respect, fought alongside women for this uprising towards greater equality, fit in with this collective voice?

For 15 years I have coached nearly a thousand men — leaders, CEOs, authors, speakers and men with big visions-step into more powerful leadership, start and grow businesses, find and rekindle love and become more personally inspired and fulfilled.  These men want women to grow alongside them.

We will examine the interplay between men and women so you can have more of the support, success and love YOU want!

With an M.A. in psychology, DISC certification, more than a decade facilitating groups and workshops, starting multiple businesses and helping hundreds of entrepreneurs start their own, my range of skills is unlike many other coaches.

You may wonder why I coach men?!

especially men who think and feel deeply or are more sensitive than the “Man Mold” teaches them to be.

To men, Shana shares this, "I know you are innately powerful and lovable. I know your desires are good. I have love and respect for your truest, wildest and most tender places. Nothing is too raw, too bold or too vulnerable to bring to me. I am honored to be on your side and help you create a life where you are fulfilled, inspired, respected, listened to, wanted, loved and cared for."

Shana James, M.A. is the co-founder of the Authentic Woman Experience (AWE), a series of life-changing workshops, coaching and products for women.Shana has been coaching individuals, couples and groups for 15 years. Her coaching style is informed by extensive training in communication, masculine & feminine dynamics, leadership, integral psychology, systems theory, meditation, nutrition, yoga, creativity, women’s circles and various spiritual traditions.
As a dating and relationship expert, she has worked with men and women all over the United States and around the world — including the U.K., France, Italy, Ireland, Croatia, Australia and Thailand. Therapists, psychologists, long-time coaches and Master NLP practitioners credit Alexis and Shana with helping them move through their own personal blocks to love and create the relationships they’ve always wanted.
She has been featured in: “Sex with Emily” (97.3 FM, San Francisco CA), “Just For Women: Dating, Relationships & Sex (Personal Life Media), Tripp Lanier’s “The New Man Podcast,” WISH (90,000 women strong International Summit for Women’s Health), Raw Attraction Magazine, Common Ground Magazine, Wellness With Rose Radio, Up Close & Personal with Bonnie Graham, Seven Steps to Lifelong Love, Decoding Him and Rori Raye’s Inner Circle.
Shana has an M.A. in integral psychology. In addition to coaching women, she has been an ally and confidant to thousands of men who turn to her to understand how women think and what women want. Shana has appeared in panels alongside brilliant teachers such as SARK, Mama Gena, Cheri Huber and Mastin Kipp. She integrates the wisdom of creativity, yoga, meditation, tantra, travel, women’s circles and mothering to help people stay vital and inspired, especially in relationship.
