Have you been looking for a way to have more confidence and courage so you can contribute to the world in a significant way? Have you been looking for a way to love life, like, for real, and to connect to a community who is committed to doing the same thing? Have you been looking to stop making excuses and to start living to the fullest?
You were made to be more than mediocre. You were made to thrive, not just survive. You were made to tell a story with your life that impacts and inspires others to love and live more. You were made to love the body you are in and love the unique things about you that make you you. You were made for more: you were made to live with confidence and courage. You were made to create and contribute.
And The College of Confidence was made for you. Our motto is simple: we are committed to cultivating confidence to courageously show up in the world. We are a community, we are a virtual neighborhood of motivated women who aspire to be the best versions of ourselves possible, creating connection and collaboration as we gather together around the curriculum of confidence.
WHY DOES CONFIDENCE MATTER?
We are able to be our best selves in this world when we are equipped with confidence. Confidence rids us of the extra skin we hide behind and gives us courage to pursue that which has been laid upon our hearts, which I believe is our calling and our contribution to the world.
Everyone needs more confidence – the real kind of confidence, the kind of confidence that comes from being involved in a community like the College of Confidence, because the College of Confidence is connecting space that is growth-oriented. Someone with deep confidence knows that they are enough, they are beautiful, they are worthy, and yet because of those things they are even more inspired to learn more, grow more and love more. That’s the thing – real confidence is contagious – it’s something you want to pass on and share with others. It speaks truth, love, and hope and it builds up to create a lifestyle of massive action, intention and purpose, encouraging others and inviting them in to do the same.
If you have been looking for a way to love people more, you have found a good place to begin. If you have been wanting to step out of your comfort zone and finally trust your gut to follow your dreams, but are looking for a safe place to jump into flight, you’ve found your home. If you know that you have a story and a voice that matters and you yearn to share it with the world in a meaningful way, yet don’t know where to start, you have found your people who will cheer you on and hold your hand as you speak.
The College of Confidence is for anyone who is looking for…
- The courage to be yourself and speak up in life
- Resources on how to figure out who you really are and what you really want
- Confidence to step out take action on a dream
- The resilience to keep showing up when discouraged
- Start seeing yourself as God sees you
- Letting go of what is no longer serving you and living differently
- Find a way to have a good relationship with food and with your body
- The perseverance to press on through rejection and failures until you succeed
- The ability to break the cycle of self-criticism and perfectionism
- Freedom from feelings of inadequacy and overwhelm
- Support and belief in the pursuit of your goals
- Accountability to become someone who always follows through
- The tools to learn how to become a massive action taker
- Improved and deepened relationships
THE COLLEGE OF CONFIDENCE WILL GIVE YOU THE COURAGE & SKILLS TO:
I know what it’s like to downplay yourself. I know too well the compulsive cycle of perfectionism and the dark hole of disordered eating and body insecurity. I know what it’s like to not feel comfortable in the skin I am in and I know what it feels like to feel scared all the time that you are really just an imposter and that you don’t have anything worthwhile to contribute to the world. I spent fifteen years of my life trapped inside the walls of perfectionism, pretending to be happy and confident on the outside, but feeling desperately insecure and full of self-doubt on the inside. Inadequacy and self-criticism lined the thoughts in my mind and it felt like I would never know how to live or think differently – it felt like I would never experience real joy or real freedom to feel alive and happy in my body. The more I heavy-hearted I felt, the more guilty I felt about not appreciating all of the blessings in my life, making the self-bullying and my internal self-talk even more toxic and negative.
Then, one day, I turned my mindset, and my life around.
I stopped being my own worst bully, I stopped getting in the way of my dreams, I stopped wishing something good would happen with my life and instead started making something good happen with it.
One of the most empowering moments of my journey towards confidence was the realization that I am not alone. There are thousands, hundreds of thousands, of people out there walking a similar journey as you, searching to have freedom, to beli
eve in themselves and to love life to the fullest so that they can stop self-sabotaging themselves with limited-habits and self-limiting thoughts. That’s why creating a community around The College of Confidence was absolutely essential for me. I can help you get to the other side of your mind – the happy side – the side that is naturally confidence, so that you can activate your greatest level of happiness and joy in life. It’s time that you stop playing small, not just for yourself, but for the world around you – the world you are meant to contribute to in a confident and courageous way.

You matter. Your growth matters to us. We take your commitment to excellence very seriously and want to show up equally for you, so to help you maximize your enrollment as a student in The College of Confidence we have set up a special space in the membership section that’s we call our College of Confidence Orientation.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THE COLLEGE AND FROM ME:
I’ve synthesized years of knowledge, how-to’s, experience and insight and poured them into The College of Confidence to be a concise, simple, one-stop shop for personal development with confidence at your foundation. The College of Confidence will help you cut your confidence curve in half. You can expect The College of Confidence to be a place where CONFIDENCE, COMMUNITY, CONNECTION and CONTRIBUTION are celebrated and curated and where we build one another up and invest in ourselves with honesty as we collaboratively commit to being the best versions of ourselves so that we can best contribute to this world in a way that matters and leaves a legacy of love.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FOR YOURSELF:
With The College of Confidence, you’ll get the 3 core things everyone needs for their confidence …
(1). COMMUNITY AND REAL CONNECTION.
The College of Confidence is a close-knit community of likeminded individuals who are committed to building others up as they grow in their own personal development. We are encouragers, dreamers, celebrators of life.
(2). COACHING AND SUPPORT.
You’ll get real and personal advice and coaching from your lead Confidence Coach, Trish Blackwell throughout the week so that you are saturating your mind with truth and support to really transform your life. With our community forums, monthly Q&A and Mastermind calls, plus everything we share from behind-the-scenes in our own business, you’ll have tons of up-to-date guidance, personalized feedback, and inspiration for what to do next with your business.
(3). CUSTOMIZED PROGRAMMING FOR OPTIMAL GROWTH.
Your experience in The College of Confidence includes customized training with our progressive course models, meaning that every month’s focus theme will be applicable to individuals at every level and with every goal. By staying active and engaged in the college, you’ll experience a major shift in your natural state of self-confidence, you’ll cultivate the courage to open up your natural gifts and talents and pursue the life you’ve dreamed, and you’ll learn to love the skin you’re in and speak kind words to yourself. Most importantly, you’ll start living with an abundance, can-do mindset and find freedom some self-limited thinking and self-doubt.
WHAT’S INCLUDED: WHAT TRAININGS WILL YOU HAVE ACCESS TO?
(Here’s a small taste of what you’ll get and learn – but keep in mind, there’s more than this, we always believe in over delivering, but we don’t want to overwhelm you!)
COMMUNITY & CONNECTION
The essence of The College of Confidence is grounded in a community – because together we can move the world. We were created for community and in spite of the million ways through social media we can stay connected, being connected with people in a real way and in a positive, uplifting way can be challenging to find. That’s why The College of Confidence will give you the connection you are craving – because it is a gathering place of likeminded people like you and me who want to connect in a positive way so that they can make a positive impact in the world around. This community is a place of encouragement, accountability, celebration, positivity, and contribution – it is a virtual way to surround yourself with people committed to being more in life.
The College of Confidence is guaranteed to be a does of daily inspiration in your social media newsfeed. As you continually hone your confidence skills and the training of your thoughts, you will receive daily updates and inspiration from me that will be exclusive to The College of Confidence and in alignment with our syllabus and current focus spot of growth. The reality is that we are drowning in information and ideas – so much so that it can become overwhelming to know where to turn and how to be inspired – that’s why you can count on the private stream of posts from The College of Confidence to be your foundational starting point of the day to set your mind right. You can also expect periodical “Confidence Cheers” that highlight the courage, the commitment and the contribution of a fellow student – we are truly committed to celebrating your growth and success as a community so that confidence become contagious.
MONTHLY BOOK CLUB
There is power in words and success leaves clues, which is why I am an advocate for voracious reading. I’m also a nerd who loves book clubs, and since no college experience is complete without books, you can count on The College of Confidence to include books. Don’t worry, you aren’t required to read the recommended book of the month – you are simply invited to read alongside the others and me if you want. If you’re busy or not a big reader, part of what you will garnish from being in College with me is that I will concisely summarize highlights of each book and you will get the benefit of The College of Confidence cliff notes so you can put the truth and lessons of the book into application for your life, your happiness and your growth.
As in any higher learning setting, The College of Confidence is themed off a syllabus that will be released monthly. Each month will have a theme and focus in relation to confidence and personal growth application and to match the syllabus you can expect weekly themed videos from me delivered to your membership site, your email and onto our private social media feeds for you specifically.
GOAL SETTING & SHARING
The College of Confidence’s motto is to “cultivate confidence to courageously show up in the world,” which means that the essence of what we do together as a community is to create goals and to share them with one another. Goals are a roadmap to help us define what high-level habits matter most to us and to guide us towards personal development that is measurable and tangible. I’ve learned from my years as a personal trainer and confidence coach that without a goal it is too easy to be lost and distracted, so, during your period of enrollment in The College of Confidence you are expected to have three goals at any given time – the goals may all be personal, or they may be professional, or they may be a mixture of both, but three clearly stated goals will help you get the most out of in your investment in your education. In the membership section of The College of Confidence you will find a journaling space to track and take notes on the progress of your goals, as well as some coaching guidance from me on how to set, evaluate and reevaluate goals.
ACCOUNTABILITY & FOLLOW UP
After having studied the skill of confidence for over a decade I have learned that no matter how deep and well-trained your confidence and thought-life is, you always need accountability. Everyone needs accountability and a coach, which is why The College of Confidence includes this as a base element of its enrollment and membership. Your expectation as a student and member in The College of Confidence is to announce your monthly intention and goal at the beginning of the month of The College of Confidence’s Accountability Page and to update your progress to your commitment weekly. Like a group project, one of your assignments as a student in the community is to like, comment on and support the posts of fellow students as they share with you and you share with them.
GROUP COACHING SESSIONS
Like being in a classroom, The College of Confidence wouldn’t be what it is without a classroom-like setting, which happens through our Group Coaching Sessions. Think of it like a fireside group chat where you will feel safe, inspired and heard. The coaching sessions will be led by me and will be recorded and posted in a secure area if you are unable to attend live. The Group Coaching Session will occur monthly and will include open coaching time any individuals who want to participate with questions or who have pre-submitted questions.
The reality is that you’re busy – you have the best intentions and a real desire to spend time researching personal development, doing one-on-one work with a coach and finding new resources of inspiration to challenge you and motivate you – but let’s be honest: you don’t have time to sit at your computer all day listening to podcasts, reading books or watching empowering video content. That’s why you have me! I will do all that for you and will be continually compiling resources to send your way so that you don’t have to waste time doing the work of research and instead can use your precious time in a way that is productive and that matters. I’ll be your personal confidence resource guide and you can count on me compiling only the best information for you.
ACTION ITEMS & CHALLENGES
As the lead point in your experience of The College of Confidence I will challenge you to step outside of your comfort zone and to put what we talk about into action – and since this is a community-based experience, putting anything into action means sharing with others in the community that you have done that and are doing it. As a College member you will receive periodic challenges throughout your enrollment and are encouraged to take on the challenges as if they were evaluations and growth opportunities for your personal commitment to confidence.
Q&A ACCESS TO TRISH
As your coach in The College of Confidence you can count on me being committed to personally answering any question you post publically on our college social media channel within 48-hours. Your willingness to post in the group will allow others who have the same questions, struggles or goals to receive coaching on the questions they might not have thought of to ask, and in turn, you will find new connections with like minded students who connect with you on the same goals and dreams.
OKAY, OKAY, WHAT’S THE COST OF THIS?
I believe in affordable education and I believe that education is life-changing and game-changing and I believe that The College of Confidence is something everyone should be able to afford.
The College of Confidence is a place for everyone.
I realize that not everyone can afford my 1:1 coaching or consulting (and honestly, I don’t have any current open coaching spots or space to work one on one with everyone) but I don’t want money to hold you back from being able to get the confidence coaching support you deserve and need in your life. The College of Confidence will be the next best thing to working consistently with me – in fact, it’s what many of my 1:1 clients will be enrolled in as well to support their personal development and growth in between our sessions.
You’ll receive an incredible amount of teaching and support from me, in short, you’ll receive all that you need to leverage your confidence each week, all for a fraction of the cost of actually working with me individually. Seriously, The College of Confidence gives you access to me at 13% of the cost.
I want this to be a matter of choice, not a matter of money.
I want to make investing in yourself easy, a no-brainer.
I want you to be able to say YES to your emotional education.
I want to award you your Confidence Continuing Education Units.
Coaching with me in a one-on-one capacity to this extend would cost well over $750/month and I simply don’t have the time and availability to offer this much support to as many people as I want in that capacity, which is why, by making this a group membership and coaching experience, you can receive the coaching support and investment you need at less than 5% of the actual cost and value.
Think about it, for just over a $1 dollar a day, you can change your life and finally get support and accountability you crave to create the life of your dreams.
