The #1 question all moms are left asking as their kids begin to leave the nest.
For 18+ years you have been 100% focused on raising your kids to become independent young adults ready to go out into the world. What you didn’t think about was what you were going to do with all the empty space and time left behind.
We are community of moms all with kids either about to leave the nest or already have. We are a drama free group of women who desire in-person connection and support combined with a bit of adventure. We are all about learning, growing, connecting, sharing and thriving through this next transition.
"Moms Who Dare has given me a new direction for my sense of adventure. Although the adventures may take you from Jodi's living room, sipping wine paired with chocolate, to traversing suspended walkways leading to zip lines, they are shared with other women just like you! The best part of MWDD is the spirited and inspiring leadership of Jodi!"
"I met Jodi at a Women's networking meeting at a time in my life where I just became
an empty nester. With the help of Mom's Who Double Dare and the wonderful women in the group, I am experiencing new adventures, getting out of my comfort zone, discovering who I am as a woman, and meeting amazing women along the way. Thank you MWDD."
"As a single mom with no chicks left in her nest, I am so grateful for the Moms Who Double Dare community. I have made new friends, stretched myself outside of my comfort zone, DARED to do new and sometimes crazy things, and enjoyed supporting other moms as well as receiving (much needed) support."
As my children entered high school and needed more space and independence, I realized there was a lot more time and space in my world. That’s when the question, NOW WHAT?, first popped into my head. What would I do with my newfound time and space?
This new situation brought up many feelings. The strongest one, which totally blindsided me, was the feeling as if something was missing in my life! This was a very awkward feeling, because my life was full and wonderful, yet there I was feeling as if there were something more for me to be doing. It was this feeling of “something more” that began pushing me outside my comfort zone. I began saying yes to new and different, (and sometimes scary), yet fun, opportunities. Opportunities that took me out of the sadness and loss of my kids leaving home to a life of fulfillment, community and of course, PLAY, or as I love to call it DARING!
Experiencing new things and meeting new people opened my world in ways I’d never imagined. Not only did I discover a new path in my professional life, I became more interesting to my children and created stronger connections with my husband, friends and family. I began learning and growing as a woman. I was discovering and embracing who I was and who I wanted to be both as a mom and as a woman during this next season of my life. This path of self-discovery, which I call DARING, eventually led me right here, to the creation of The Moms Who Double Dare™ Membership Community! This one of a kind community is here to support you on your journey of learning, growing, experiencing new things and creating deeper connections with the people you love most. And the best part, you do it all with other moms, other women, just like you! It’s the community for you if you are ready to say YES to discovering all you want to be, do and have during the Empty Nest Season of your life.
You are never alone here. Truly you aren’t. Reach out in the Moms Who Double Dare™ Community where there is always a fellow mom willing to help and support you. We get it and we are right there with you.
You also have access to Me! I’m your coach, mentor & motivator! I have made it my mission to support you through this community and connection. When you join MWDD you have access to me, not only as your Dare Guide, but as your coach! Need to talk? Feeling stuck? Shoot me an email it's that simple!
Your MWDD™ community can help with the serious stuff and the play stuff!
Darventures are a blast! The best thing about these is that you can do them anytime anywhere, alone or with friends. Need ideas? Just check out the community, where we are always posting fun things to do and try. From a day of shopping, or a day of pampering to indoor Skydiving and Escape the Room fun, whatever adventure sounds good to you we are ready to support and cheer you on. Who knows, we might just plan one in your area.
And speaking of wine, our Moms Who Wine Evenings are more than relaxing with girlfriends and sharing mom stories- these in-person and virtual events are times to relax, be real, and not have to show up as the Super Moms we all tend to try to be. We sometimes invite experts in fields, such as mindfulness, organization, personal style, etc. to help us learn and grow together.

Books have changed my life!
If my mother reads this she will most likely fall off her chair, as I never read as a child. It was over 6 years ago I discovered the world of books and how they could change my life. I have read amazing fiction like, Harry Potter, The Help and Gone With The Wind, as well as personal growth books like, I Dare Me, Big Magic, The Art of Exceptional Living and Daring Greatly, jut to name a few.
Our bi-monthly on-line book club is meant to give you plenty of time to read and enjoy the books we choose. At the end of every book we will meet, via zoom video(just like Skype) and have awesome book discussions.
Giving back to others is just one way we can remove ourselves from what's going on in our lives to help make a difference in someone else's. We raise money annually for Living Beyond Breast Cancer. We have cooked dinner for the families at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House. We have supported local community cupboards. Have a way MWD can give back, shoot me a message and let's chat!

Create your version of a daring life today. You will feel great about yourself. Your kids will be proud. You will form deeper connections with those you love, and it all starts with daring to saying yes to YOU!
A: If you have kids in High School and Beyond then MWDD is the community for you. If you live near Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties then MWDD Membership is right for you. If you are ready to form meaningful connections with other women and embark on a journey of personal development and adventure, then MWDD membership is for you.
A: We have approximately 3 in person events a month. We may also have an on-line event or two. You choose what fits your schedule. Keep in mind, just like a gym membership or a spa membership, there will be months when you can attend all our events and others when life will get in your way. This happens and is normal, so don’t beat yourself up if once in a while you have to say no!
A: Yes! Yes! Yes!
One of my favorite parts of having this community is getting to know other moms, and welcoming new members to our group personally is super fun. I’ve met new friends and developed many strong relationships with my members. I attend all of the MWDD events I plan. We have a private, closed Facebook Group just for members where we post events and have on- line meet up chats. You are always welcome to shoot me an email to plan a time to jump on the phone or a video zoom chat.
A: Yup! No contract when you join. You will be billed automatically each month and can cancel at anytime. Although it would make me sad if you left, I would understand and you would be welcome back anytime.
A1: I get this alot! I myself have a full life, with friends(outside of MWDD) and family. However, I can tell you this, women have always needed other women and community to thrive. Having a full life already does not mean you stop meeting other women and experiencing new things.
I promise you that if you find time to attend just one event a month, you will discover opportunity, connections and fun you never thought existed or that you even were aware you desired.
A2: Many of the moms who find MWDD share with me, they have trouble committing their time because they have been so used to be being available 24/7 for their families!
It’s no wonder making time for yourself creates a feeling of unease and even anxiety. Here’s the thing. Everyone else is making plans, and doing new and fun things. They are moving forward and if you do nothing, you will be left stuck in the same place. You have this one precious, short life. You have done an amazing job raising your kids, and you will still need to be and always will be there for them. Showing your kids, by example, that it is ok to put yourself first is not selfish, rather it is a great mom teaching moment! It’s now your time to do new things that you have put off to raise your kids. I promise you, your family will understand and they will be proud of you for it.
A: Moms Who Double Dare membership is a monthly subscription. Because there is no contract there’s no-refund policy.
If you feel that the membership is no longer a fit, you can cancel your subscription with the click of a button at any time. You won’t be put in the awkward situation of having to contact me in person or give a specific reason. You’ll have access right up to the end of your membership period, and will not be charged again and you are always welcome back if your circumstances change.
Mind you, if you join MWDD and come to our events, your life will be so much richer. You’ll be so happy, you won’t want your money back.
Finally you’ll discover who you want to be during this next season of your life. It’s never too late to learn & grow, but it can only happen if you dare to take action.
I know it’s hard and I know you’re busy, but the Moms Who Double Dare Community is ready to support you, motivate you, and cheer you on along the way. Together, we’ll help answer that nagging question... Now What?
You don’t have to feel sad about empty nest anymore.
You can do exactly what you raised your kids to do...
Learn, grow, meet new people and experience new things.
Say yes and Join today and begin creating your Daring Life!
