It all started one night in Acapulco….shouldn’t all stories start like that?
My friend Derek and I put 200 bucks in our back pocket and created a checklist of challenges (aka a scavenger hunt) that we wanted to accomplish by sunrise. About five tequila shooters and a shit-ton of adventures later, it ended up being one of the best nights of my life. It was fucking magical. Like unicorn magical.
Since then, I have created scavenger hunts for nights out with friends, when I am traveling or any time I need to get out of my comfort zone. Which is a lot because just like everyone else, it gets super easy to stay in my pajamas and binge watch Veronica Mars episodes.
Because if you are not willing to challenge yourself, you are not willing to change yourself.
In April of 2014, I launched The Scavenger Hunt of Awesomeness. An online scavenger hunt to get people offline trying new things and meeting new people. Within days, I was watching women from around the world embrace life in a new way and learn something beautiful in the process. That they were fearless.
What started as a scavenger hunt, ended up being a new way of life. So this group was inspired by those amazing women who looked at that ridiculous scavenger hunt, said “what the hell” and then asked for more.
Fear has ruled long enough in my life. What do I mean? Fear of what people think, fear of going to hell for (just about anything), fear of not finding love, fear of not pleasing people enough, fear of being homeless, fear of losing my job, fear of my child dying, fear of not having a man....and the list is endless. This hunt has shown that by conquering fears, like lunch alone by myself, I will survive and grow in the process. Giving into my fear, I lack courage. I want to leave a legacy to my daughter to be fearless. Part of being fearless is being vulnerable.Sarah, Denver

OK, so no you are not getting a Strawberry Shortcake TK in the mail, but the bi-weekly email will be like one. Filled with audio pep talks, journal questions, madlibs, downloads, printables, videos, playlists of my favorite songs and more! It will feel like a virtual bear hug.
I am literally seven layers of ridiculous and have TONS of fun ideas that I want to do with this group. But if I told you, it wouldn’t be a surprise. Just know I may show up in fb with unicorn prizes that need to be given away immediately.
One of my biggest takeaways so far is that we can build the life that we want to. Sometimes we spend so much time thinking about what we don't have that we forget to give thanks for what we have and to enjoy life as it is.Adriana, Washington DC

At a freeway exit, I gave a homeless person a bottle of water... and although it was an act of kindness, it didn't even occur to me to take a picture for the hunt, since that wasn't my original intention. That's when I realized that this scavenger hunt is putting me/us on an energy level that's causing thoughts of kindness... and curiosity, playfulness, etc. Our actions are then supporting that. This seriously rocks. You all rock. Thank you, Kira, for literally changing how we think and act... which affects those that we engage with in such a positive way. Wow.Greta, Portland
Through this experience, I have learned that the only thing one has to do in life is show up! And be the best possible person you can be because in life, we should strive for progress and not perfection. Also being forced to step out of my comfort zone taught me that you can never fall too hard too fast or too far that you can't get back up and rebuild yourself into a better you!Indhira, NYC
Scavenger Hunts? Unicorns? Will I really get something out of this?
Here is the absolute truth. You get out of this what you put into it.
If you are going to not join in on conversation in the fb group, participate in activities, push yourself to do the challenges then you are not going to get jack shit out of this. You can grab your boxed wine and bitch to your friends some more about how life and love suck.
If you are ready to try some new things (even with baby steps), get vulnerable in the group, have some fun, meet new people and embrace the shit out of this, you will change your life. No joke.
This is life changing if you let it be.
I don't live in North America, can I still join?
I want The League to be inspiring others everywhere! Revolutions are not much fun if they are only one continent.
What if I can't make the calls? Will I miss out? I have FOMO!!
Every call will be created into an mp3 to be downloaded and listened to again and again. And you will want to listen again:)
If you have a question for me for Q & A and can’t make the call, just email it to me before hand and I will answer it on the call.
What if I start dating someone, will this group still be for me?
Hell yeah, it is.
This group is not just about dating, it is about you.
You, feeling great and making yourself more awesome for your future or current significant other.
They will actually thank you when you are happy, learn new insight and how to be even better in your relationship.
You will be so excited it will be contagious. Kind of like crabs.
Oh wait, not quite like that.
Why do I have to commit to three or six months?
Because change does not happen overnight, Sugarpants.
I believe in you enough to be bossy and make you commit. Because there will be days where you are tired or frustrated and not feeling it. That’s ok. You take a few days off and then remember how amazing it feels to choose to be happy.
To embrace joy in the world.
To push yourself to try new things.
To be surrounded by incredible and supportive people.
To have a life coach at your fingertips to ask advice.
Then find your way back to us. We will be here ready to ask you were you have been and how we can support you!!
