Theme:  Walking Into Your Abundant Life


Join Cassandra Mack and women from all around the NYC on Saturday, September 29, 2018 for the 5th Annual Grab A Girlfriend & Take Time for Self Walk, a 1-Mile non-competitive walk just for women that you take to start your journey toward better self-care and aligning your life with your vision of success.

Why should you take this walk? As women, we spend nearly 75% of our lives taking care of others; often at the expense of our self-care and personal goals. As a result of leaving ourselves on the bottom of our to-do-list, we become more prone to stress, burnout, emotional exhaustion, and even feelings of depression.

Given the reality that women overwhelmingly put everyone else ahead of themselves, Cassandra Mack, CVO of Strategies for Empowered Living Inc., launched the Grab A Girlfriend & Take Time for Self Walk, for women of all ages and stages to come together to do something special for themselves, walk into their next season of purpose and learn to make themselves more of a priority... since you only get one life to live.

When women make their own happiness and well-being more of a priority, they are better able to show up for those who depend on them and the priorities that they are committed to from a place of strength and resourcefulness rather than the realm of overwhelm.

Who are the women taking this walk? ...Simply put: Women who realize that if they don’t start investing in their own well-being and happiness, no one else is going to do it for them. Truth be told, the women who are attending this walk are walking with us for a myriad of reasons. Some are walking to rebuild their confidence. Others are walking to reclaim their burried dreams. Some are talking this walk as a first step to recommit to better health and wellness. Then there are those who aren’t quite sure why they’ve chosen to take this walk …all they know is that they want to be a part of something significant, while doing something special just for themselves. Does this sound like you? Then why don't you come out and join us.  We would love to have you.

What Will This Walk Entail?

The Grab A Girlfriend and Take Time for Self Walk is a non-competitive walk, meaning we are not racing or competing against each other, we are walking together at a moderate pace from beginning to end ...leaving no woman behind.

This walk is about fellowship, self-reflection and connection. Also at roughly every quarter mile we will stop at a designated stopping point aka quarter mile milestones, to set one small self-care intention. This is a small self-care promise that you make to yourself. Your self-care promise can be something related to your physical health, your finances, a relationship, a mindset that you want to be free of, a habit that you want to work on or any other area of your life that you would like to enrich or pay better attention to. You can set your intention silently or declare it out loud. Each stopping point that we make during this walk will correlate with the theme for that particular quarter mile milestone. 

And most importantly...No girlfriend will be left behind! If due to health reasons, you cannot complete the entire 1-mile walk, you can still register for the walk and then choose to do what you can and walk a portion of the walk with us. But you must register in advance in order to participate and join us. 

 What Makes This Walk Different?

This walk is different from other walks, because it is more than just a walk .... it's a walking workshop. Not only will we be walking together, but at the various stopping points, you will be guided through simple yet very powerful activities designed to help you activate your inner awesomeness; so that you can walk into your next season of purpose with courage and resolve.  

Here's What Your Registration Fee Includes:

1. Your entry ticket into the Grab A Girlfriend and Take Time for Self Walk & Outdoor Workshop where you'll be guide through interactive high-value activities that Cassandra Mack only offers in her live corporate trainings and private workshops)  

2. Grab A Girlfriend & Go Drawstring Lightweight Backpack

3. The Grab A Girlfriend & Take Time For Self E-Journal 

Created Exclusively for the participants of this event. (This E-Journal will be delivered to your e-mail address via PDF File to the email address that you register with. ***Please allow up to 72-hours from the time you register to receive your E-journal.)

Day At A Glance 


1.      Welcome: At 8:00am participants will be met and welcomed at their walk meeting location  by their Grab A Girlfriend & Go Team Leader who will say a few encouraging words before they begin their one-mile walk. The walk will begin @ 8:15am SHARP

 2.      Quarter Mile Milestones: At roughly every quarter mile the group will stop and you will be asked to set a self-care intention, (something that you intend to do in order to make your self-care more of a priority). You can set your intention silently or you can declare it out loud. We will use the analagy of walking to signify what we intend to walk away from in order to walk toward a better future.

   Here a few examples of self-care intentions:

*I am walking away from hating my body... so I can walk into appreciating all of the helpful ways that my body serves me.

*I am walking away from the need to people I can walk into doing more of the things that meet my needs and make me happy.

 *I am walking away from bitterness and I can walk into greater peace and joy.

 *I am walking away from spending beyond my that I can walk into  better finances this year.

 *I am walking away from relationships where I am not respected, valued and    treated with that I can walk into relationships where I am treated with love, care, respect, consideration and concern.  

           At every quarter mile, your Grab A Girlfriend & Go Team Leader will stop and say: “We are at our quarter mile milestone marker...What's your intention? You'll then consider one thing that you will walk away from so that you can walk into something better.” This will occur four times in total.

 3.      Connect & Culminate:At the one mile mark your Grab A Girlfriend & Go Team Leader will say a few closing words and lead you through a closing activity. Then your team leaders will close out the walk.


 Raindate: TBA
