The Short Story

Cordes has been a stay-and-home mom raising 4 children while trying to build 2 businesses. She understands the difficulties of being immersed in family life and putting herself last. She has had sleepless nights and seemingly uncontrollable schedules. She understands the challenge of balancing the need to be present for the family with the financial burden caused by diminished income. She understands what it is like to answer the question “What do you do?” with “I’m just a stay-at-home mom” and feeling that she wasn’t able to express her true talents and abilities.

Cordes has dedicated her life to teaching and coaching adults and teens to lead better lives. She has created courses on a wide range of topics - from wilderness skills, Albanian conversation, AP Government, International Relations, Report Writing for UN workers, and college exam prep to religious topics, leadership skills, games, leadership and more. In addition to the learning she created for her classrooms, she has created learning for organizations such as the Prince George’s School District, WETA, CSPAN, YMCA Camp Thunderbird, The American Church of Bonn, The United Nations Development Fund and others.

Recognizing that her teenage children still needed her, in 2022, Cordes left the classroom again to create her second company focused on creating courses. However, instead of spending most of her time creating courses, she found herself immersed in learning what it means to start and run a virtual business. She took all the courses, followed all the podcasts, joined every webinar and researched every topic.

Then she discovered everyone was coming to her for all the answers, and she realized she could help more women find freedom by empowering them to overcome their doubts and confusion and creating a clear path to entrepreneurship.

Now Cordes blogs, teaches and coaches women on how to get the ideas in their heads into a business that brings freedom by empowering women to unleash their inner superpowers and create the life they dream of.
