You are signed up to get the killer T-shirt...  But, before you go...you get to be one of the very first people to have this life changing opportunity.
First you dream it...then you real-life it.
  (Read on to learn about our life-changing opportunity to level up personally, professionally & within relationships)
Surely You're Utterly Sick And Tired Of Spinning Your Wheels By Now? Well You Don't Have To Be...
Not anymore. 
Attention Women Business Owners, Up And Comer's, + Executives:
Do you have this crazy idea that maybe your purpose is bigger than you? 

Perhaps you’re feeling “stuck” in life or your career, but you know you have something in you… a business idea, a personal gift, a relationship to offer, a next level to achieve… that just might be a game-changer, for both you & others? 

You’ve been dreaming about this “something big” for ages, & you’ve reached a place where you *might just explode* if you don’t chase this dream down or push yourself onward & upward, but… you don’t really know what the heck to do to get it started? 

Guess what, Girlfriend… we feel you


At The Dostal House, we believe whole-heartedly that the future is female... which is why it is our soul’s purpose to help women take the leap from being “dreamers” to “doers.” 

No matter what mission you're set out to achieve, we aim to give you the platform you need to do the dang thing… in the biggest & best way possible. 

Also, can we talk about divine timing?! These 120 days in The Academy will set you up for your most impactful, successful year yet in 2020


Check out what people are saying about The House:

Introducing The House Academy...
Think of this as a 120-day “mastermind group meets self love & awareness boot camp” geared specifically towards developing a greater understanding of Y-O-U. 

Honestly, we like to refer to it as leadership & legacy-making... 

Whether you’re feeling a bit “stuck” with where you currently are, you’re on a personal journey to invest in the relationship you have with yourself, or you want to connect with other women on their way, this your sign! You need in on this, Girl!

Personally & professionally… The House Academy is dedicated to setting you up for living your best life

And we’re not talking the kind of stuff that gives you all the feels, gets you pumped up, & then sends you on your way… we’re talking roll up your silk blouse sleeves & tighten your ponytail, because we’re going in!

 Into the nitty gritty of who you are & why you are the way you are. 

We're discovering what the heck it is that really lights you up inside, & building a life around implementing exactly that. 

We’re developing real goals: the kind that are attached to your soul’s purpose & your personal values. 

We are identifying & developing a detailed strategic plan for exactly how you’re going to get there, & then we’re going to do it, together. 

Let’s overcome fear-based thinking. Let's overcome our limiting beliefs.

Let’s learn to be effective communicators & how to negotiate like a girl boss in a man’s world. 

Let’s rewire our brains for resiliency

Let’s celebrate who we are, work hard at achieving the big things we are destined to do, & empower the women around us on the way. 


Every single little detail of The Academy has been designed with you in mind, Girlfriend. 

Because you’re the type of woman who doesn’t want to get to the end of your life & find that you’ve just lived the length of it. 

You want to have lived the width of it as well. 


We hear you, we see you, heck… we are you & we’re here to support you

But you’re going to want to act fast: We are limiting the number accepted to The Academy to only 10 women! 

We’re here to do great big things, & you can’t do great big things with mediocre people… so we’re looking for the best!

Meegan Hofmeister, The Dostal House | SignedM. 

Meegan Hofmeister is the founder of The Dostal House & the influencer behind the life + style blog, SignedM. Her journey as a serial entrepreneur & girl boss has been an organic one: after opening & closing her first business within 3 years, struggling through a not-so-pretty dissolution of a business partnership, & losing sight of what she thought was her “life’s purpose” (aka: living out her fashion dreams via retail) Meegan learned first hand how to trust the process & turn failure into fuel. Her next business endeavors organically came to be through an immense amount of growth combined with rediscovering who she was, both personally & professionally. What started as a quest to "crack the code” to the social media game & learning everything she could about content marketing led to the launch of SignedM. as her creative outlet, which evolved into accidentally creating a freelance social media strategy & content creation business from her couch. This couch-turned-home-office revelation resulting in Meegan discovering an innate need to surround herself with other like-minded female entrepreneurs for support, encouragement & accountability, which in turn led to the founding of The Dostal House in May of 2017. The House has since evolved into being the women’s workspace & social club committed to creating a community of women on their way that it is today. 

Meegan earned her Bachelor of Business Administration from Upper Iowa University, was honored as one of the Corridor Business Journal’s Forty Under 40 in 2018, & has spoken about her journey as a female entrepreneur & fulfilling her soul’s work empowering & elevating women at EntreFest, HER Luncheon, Kirkwood Community College, Courageously You Conference & Professional Women’s Network.

What are others saying about The Academy?
"Deciding to do The Academy was an easy decision for me because of the massive value that was presented (speakers, like-minded people, the fun perks, etc). I knew it would be good, but it has come to be even better than I expected. Diving deep into the topics and exercises allows me to be more intentional and dedicate specific time for it - and it has been great! It’s a space to be vulnerable and open, which is key for progress and growth in any area! Additionally, doing all that with the right people surrounding you - there are no words! The Academy is exactly what I have needed to grow to my next level! Absolutely love it.” 

- Sajra Vunic, Regional Vice President, Primerica


"Based on my recent experience, I would highly recommend investing in the Dostal House Academy. The insight I gained from week one’s lesson has been career changing. Within one month from starting the Academy, I implemented small changes to the way I run my consulting practice and have increased my productivity by more than 35%. This additional revenue provides financial freedom and affords extra time to spend with friends and family. I look forward to completing the remaining lessons and I am confident that my future will be dramatically different than I would have ever imagined."

WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE ACADEMY
Let’s break it all down.
Here's what you're getting...
  • Workshop #1 | Friday, September 13 from 2-5pm
WHO the Heck Am I?! 
with Patti Seda, Seda Consulting

Knowledge is power & the more we know about ourselves the more empowered we are to make decisions that will result in living our best lives. 
We kick off The Academy with doing a little homework to discover who we are, how we act, what our potential is & where our ambition might take us. Not only will we learn more about & understand ourselves better, but we’ll also be able to look at others & understand them too. (Talk about a game changer for relationships, both personal & professional!) 


  • ​Workshop #2 | Friday, September 27 from 2-5pm
WHY, Exactly, Am I The Way That I Am? 
with Shannon Beck, Endless Ocean Coaching

We all have a story to tell & our stories are unique to us, having been written by our own personal trauma & loss, success & achievement, relationships & memories made. We are who we are because of what we go through in life. & at The Dostal House, we firmly believe that we grow through what we go through.
 
Our stories are tied to how we see the world, how we interact with others, how we define our values & what we believe matters. We all are motivated by different things & want to bring to life different dreams... but, WHY are these dreams the dreams we dream? What does "success" look like, & what does it mean to me?  


  • ​Workshop #3 | Friday, October 11 from 2-5pm
HOW Do I Do Work In A Way That Matters To ME?
with Jackie Pelland, Leadership Expert

We all want our lives to matter. We want to do work that defines our purpose. Rights?!

Tragically, some people live their entire lives without ever doing the work most aligned to the purpose in their heart. So, what gets in the way? If you’re like most of us, you were taught to follow the rules, to be part of the status quo, and to give others the power to decide what work you will do. Once we start down this path of permission seeking it becomes easy to hide and play it safe. We don’t have to worry about being wrong, or not having our work accepted by others. 

But, our hearts long to live out our purpose, & you don't have to live this way. This session explores how to reconnect with what matters most to you and get started living that life right now!


  • ​​Bonus Workshop | Friday, October 18 from 3-5pm
Headshots & Happy Hour

Look good, feel good, document it with a pic... because if you didn't, did it even really happen?! Also, mix & mingle with your fellow attendees. Accountability counts.

 
  • ​​Workshop #4 | Friday, October 25 from 2-5pm
See It To Believe It 
with Denise McCormick, The Educator's Coach  & Cindy Knebel, Revisit Furniture Warehouse

"What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.” You don’t have to be Buddhist to appreciate the wisdom in these words! & as Oprah (quite possibly God’s gift to women…) has advised, “you must understand your intention before you make your decision.” 

Here’s the deal: you now know who you are & why you are, now what do you want to do… & why? We’re talking G-O-A-L-S here, friends. Three specific goals, to be exact: a personal goal, a professional goal & a relationship goal. & then we’re gonna manifest the heck out of them! 

Once you’ve identified “The Big Three” for you, we’re gonna get crafty! You get what you focus on, so focus on what you want. We’ll create beautifully framed vision boards, to serve as our reminder to focus on what you’ve committed to achieving during The Academy. 


  • ​​Workshop #5 | Friday, November 8 from 2-5pm
Strategy, Strategy, Strategy... Productivity, Productivity Productivity
with Marlo Higgins, Your Chief Inspirational Officer 

It’s the name of the game, ladies! Strategy without process is little more than a wish list… factual… & you’ve already dreamed it; it’s time to real life it! 

Let’s take The Big Three & break it down. Let’s draw a road map. Let’s identify *exactly* how you are going to achieve each of The Big Three, step by step. Let’s create action. Personally. Professionally. & within relationshipally. (Yes, we realize that's not a real word. But say it... it's kinda fun though, right?!) We’re going from inspiration to impact. 


  • ​​​Bonus Workshop | Friday, November 15 from 3-5pm
Headshots & Happy Hour

Look good, feel good, document it with a pic... because if you didn't, did it even really happen?! Also, mix & mingle with your fellow attendees. Accountability counts.

 
  • ​​​Workshop #6 | Friday, November 22 from 2-5pm
Have No Fear & Do NOT Be The One To Limit YOU.  
with Courtney Misener, speaker/writer/dance enthusiast

What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Self doubt & fear-based thinking can, & will, stop us dead in our tracks. But, what if there was nothing to fear? &… what if you could take it one step further… you could prove to yourself that this is true? 

Working with science based tools, we’ll build resiliency, relieve stress & anxiety, & inspire & ignite the courage within to thrive in life. Let’s move through fear, so our authentic selves can shine, baby, shine! 


  • ​​​Workshop #7 | Friday, December 6 from 2-5pm
How To Get Exactly What You Want
with Michele Williams, Tippie College of Business at The University of Iowa

What you really, really want... (& now the Spice Girls will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. You're welcome. 

You hear this all the time: "the key to any successful relationship, personal or professional, is communication." We’re adding to it. “& negotiation.” 

Seriously though, we’re gonna equip you with all the skills you need to have the upper hand always in this workshop… <insert evil laugh here>  & it’s gonna be legit. Learn how to effectively communicate & negotiate in a man’s world, to get exactly what you want out of life.

 
  • ​​​Workshop #8 | Date TBD
Wrapping It All Up With A Bow
with Santuary Spa

& just in time for Christmas! (& look at you go, Girl... you will be READY to KILL IT in 2020!)



Timing for this round of The Academy is *perfect*... you'll be spending the final 120 days of 2019 deep-diving into YOU:
~ discovering what makes you tick & why
~ getting crystal clear on what your dream life looks like ~ building the detailed, strategy that's going to get you there. 

You'll come out of The Academy as a better version of yourself & in the position to make 2020 your best year yet.
 
OH, & by the way...
If you were to go to a Professional Business Coach, this could take you years of time & over $25k in money spent... 

Here's What Debi Durham, The Iowa Economic Development Director,  Has To Say About The Dostal House:
“We’ve all seen the data demonstrating the benefits of female leadership to businesses and communities, but I’ve had the opportunity to experience it firsthand. From thriving main streets comprised primarily of women-owned businesses to the exciting ventures borne out of programs that hold up and support female entrepreneurs, women are breathing new life into our state. We need more programs and places – like The Dostal House in Cedar Rapids – that help ensure the success of women all across Iowa.”

(are you convinced yet?!)
Even if you're considering it... you should apply. 

The best investment you could ever make is in yourself. 

So go on. Let's do this dang thing!

Cindy wants to help others appreciate the beauty, quality and value of classic pieces. "The potential to bring new life to these pieces is amazing. The outcomes are fabulous," says Cindy.
In 2008, Cindy saw people were tightening purchasing patterns. Peoples shopping habits shifted and demanded design trends to shift with them. People started to enjoy finding pieces with character to use in their homes, or repurpose what they already have. It became cool to shop vintage and thrift to reflect their individuality.

In 2010 Revisit was founded in North Liberty as a high-quality furniture store that mixed new and old. This design reflected the way people truly decorate and furnish their homes and met an unfilled need in the area.

Cindy's newest venture is Revisit Furniture Warehouse. This is a culmination of the past, present and future in furniture decorating, combining furniture from the past, listening to current shopping habits and incorporating the future with online shopping convenience. The goal of Revisit Furniture Warehouse is to inspire those in the corridor to experience their best design.
