Three Days To Your Best Stepmom Life

April 20-22, 2023


Learn how to love your role as a stepmom, not just survive it.

How do you create your happily ever after when you're raising someone else's kids (not to mention dealing with their ex)?

Congratulations - you found your soulmate!

But it just so happens that your knight in shining armor comes with kids - and also an ex.

No matter how well you "blend," when you join a ready-made family, it's impossible to fully understand (much less prepare for!) what you've signed up for.

Do You Ever Feel Like . . .

  • You’re just “getting by” every day and have no control over your own life because your partner’s ex and kids dictate every detail? 
  • You lost out on all the fun “firsts” with your partner and have sacrificed your own happiness for this new family?
  • You have all the responsibilities of parenting but none of the respect from the kids and you’re constantly comparing yourself to your partner’s ex?
  • You don’t have many other stepmoms in your life, so you feel totally alone, like nobody gets it.

Meanwhile, what you really want is . . .

  • To feel like yourself again and like you get to make decisions over your life and to stop feeling like you’re in a relationship with your partner AND their ex.
  • To feel secure in your role and relationship so that you feel heard, accepted, and treated like a real parent. And like you’re part of the family, not an outsider or third wheel.
  • To have a strong relationship (or at least mutual respect) with the kids.
  • Connections with other women who understand who have been in the same role of stepmom that you can talk to about your experiences.

We get it. Because we've been there, too.

The Stepmom Summit will help you calm your blended family chaos and begin to thrive.

The Stepmom Summit will run from April 20-22, 2023 with a variety of presentations to choose from each day.


I don't know about you, but I prefer to leave my house as little as possible. That being said, you can tune into the summit from anywhere with Internet access. Yes, that means your couch, too!


Presentations will be about 45 minutes in length. The presentations will be available for 24 hours only to encourage you to stop waiting for the right time and take action along with hundreds of other stepmoms.


You’ll also have access to a private Facebook group for the summit where we’ll be partying it up before the summit starts and working together on our stepmom lives once it kicks off.


As an attendee, you’ll have the chance to win prizes based on engagement, BINGO, and giveaways. In fact, entries are being awarded right now in the Facebook group. Come on in and join the fun!


After registering, you can also upgrade to gain access to the All-Access Pass. That means you'll get lifetime access to presentations and hundreds of dollars of bonuses designed to help you implement what you learn. You won't want to miss it!

A Space For Every. Single. Stepmom

The Stepmom Summit offers REAL solutions and REAL people from all walks of life.

There's something for every stepmom here, whether you're an every other weekend stepmom or a full-time stepmom. Whether you have a high-conflict ex or if she's your BFF.

This summit is for you whether you love your kids like your own or if you can barely stand being in the same home as them.

Stepmom life doesn't have to be full of constant stress. We know things can be better, and we want to help you get there.


We've pulled together an unparalleled group of top experts on issues that impact stepmoms.

Ready to join us?

The Stepmom Summit has served almost 4,000 women.

Here’s what some of them had to say:

I was feeling discouraged and down, but the summit brought me hope. I know it will be a long road but I’m feeling more confident that I can get the stepmom life I want. I hope for another summit soon!


“Love this, you two - you've created an incredible thing that will benefit so many people.”


The Stepmom Summit was life-changing for me! Beth and Cameron go above and beyond with amazing speakers and presentations, as well as bonus materials that will help us grow. 


I’ve always felt left out of the “mom club” as a stepmom. After attending the stepmom summit, I now feel like I am part of an amazing tribe of women who are so strong and make a difference in their families everyday.


The Stepmom Summit was transformational! Knowing that so many other women feel the same things I do has given me permission to not feel guilty about how I feel.


“I wish I had this resource when I got married! It would have made the last 7 years so much easier”


“This is life-changing work, ladies”



We've got A's for your Q's

Is this only for stepmoms?

It sure is! We have a lot of resources that every member of a stepfamily can use, but we have tailored this particular event just for the unique challenges that face stepmoms.

If you're feeling overwhelmed, or like blended family life has gotten out of control, this summit is for you. Whatever issues around your stepfamily that you're dealing with, you'll find help here!

When is this whole thing happening?

The main portion of the summit runs from April 20-22nd. We'll kick off on April 20th with an opening call and the Facebook community will be available to you as soon as you get your ticket!

Are the presentations live?

To avoid tech glitches, save our sanity, and keep things easy for the speakers, the presentations are pre-recorded and will be released at the scheduled time.

However, they air live and speakers will participate in live chats during their presentations.

Are the videos captioned or transcribed?

We want the summit to be accessible to absolutely everyone. So we will have captions and transcriptions available.

I still have other questions!

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions you may have. We'll get back to you as soon as possible!

I'm in a queer stepfamily; is this event for me?

Yes! Our mission is to serve ALL stepmoms. Whether you're straight or queer. Whatever your race is. And whether you're a stepmom of faith or agnostic, or anything in between. 

Our diverse group of hosts and speakers have each experienced the ups and downs of stepfamily life in incredibly different ways. They've lived it, learned it, and are ready to pass their rich experience on to you.

How long will the videos be available?

Each video will be available for 24 hours. However, you can grab the All-Access Pass to get lifetime access to all of the videos - PLUS hundreds of dollars of bonus tools to help you implement everything you learn.

Will all of the speakers get my email address?

No. We know you may not want to stay in touch with every single speaker. A speaker will get your email address when you download their workbook or freebie. And you can opt out of future communications at any time.

Learn more in our Privacy Policy.

What if I miss a speaker or panel that I want to see?

Don't worry! You'll be able to access recordings of the speakers and panels for free until 24 hours after the event.

But if you'd like access longer, we have a couple of great VIP options for you that will also give you more bonuses and gifts. You can find out about them HERE.

Are you still accepting speakers?

All of our speakers for this summit have been hand-picked and our slots are currently full. However, we're open to additional affiliates or potential speakers next year's summit. If you're interested in affiliate details or being considered for The Stepmom Summit, email us at
