Welcome to my blog, The Working Mom Collective (formerly Girl Meets Soul), where I'm on a quest to help the ambitious working mom in a high-stakes career  win at work and thrive in motherhood!
Pull up a seat, grab some tea, and let's get to know each other!

Hi,   I'm   Priscilla

about me

I love being a mama, but let’s be real – it can get overwhelming at times. Even more so when you are an ambitious woman and have a high-stakes job that you also love.  Which is why it’s important to step away from it all once in a while, preferably with a group of like-minded girlfriends.

Picture this:

Packing your bags, leaving the chaos of laundry, meal prep, and endless emails behind, and jetting off on a journey just for you and your girls. It’s time to embrace the wanderlust within, reconnect with yourself, with your community, and soak up all the goodness that comes with a girl adventure.

I’m sitting in amazing San Diego as I write this, overlooking the Pacific Ocean from my corner wrap-around suite, enjoying the sounds of the ocean, the cool breeze wafting through my balcony door, and the serene quietness of no one calling my name. #SweetBliss

So grab a cup of coffee (or tea, if you’re like me), sit back, and let me share with you why traveling without your family is an absolute game-changer!

1. Unleashing Your Inner Superwoman: Imagine stepping away from the day-to-day chaos and reconnecting with the amazing woman you are. Travel where you get to focus on yourself gives you the chance to rediscover your passions, dreams, and all those desires that might have taken a backseat. Or, you know, gotten buried behind a thousand to-do items on a never-ending list. It’s about embracing the freedom to do whatever makes your soul sing – whether that’s hiking a majestic trail, indulging in local cuisine, or simply sitting in a café journaling and people-watching.  And spas.  We can’t forget the spas.

2. Bonding, Laughter, and Lifelong Friendships: When you join a group of like-minded women, the possibilities are endless. Imagine sharing stories, exploring new destinations together, and laughing until your belly hurts. The friendships you forge during these adventures are pure magic – they’re your cheerleaders, confidantes, and travel buddies for life. It creates a safe space where you can share your dreams, your frustrations, your wins, and your losses. And let me tell you, it is the most cathartic feeling in the world.

3. Rest and Rejuvenation: As a loving and dedicated mom, you deserve some serious self-care. Travel without your family isn’t selfish; it’s an opportunity to fill up your cup and come back even more present and fulfilled. It’s about pampering yourself with relaxation, enjoying the little pleasures, and embracing the luxury of time alone. Whether it’s indulging in a spa day or sipping cocktails by the beach, you deserve to be treated like the queen you are! And if you’re an introverted mama like me, it is essential to build in alone time even when you’re with friends.

4. Finding New Heights: Picture yourself stepping out of your comfort zone and embracing new adventures. Solo travel pushes you to try things you never thought possible. From navigating unknown cities to immersing yourself in new cultures, each experience ignites personal growth, boosts your confidence, and widens your perspective. You’ll come back home feeling like a badass conqueror!

5. Balancing Mama Life with Your Dreams: We all know that being a mom and pursuing your dreams can sometimes feel like a juggling act. But solo travel provides the perfect escape to reassess your priorities and find that sweet spot. It’s a chance to redefine what truly matters and strike a balance between your personal aspirations, motherhood, and career.

So, my wanderlust-loving friend, it’s time to let your adventurous spirit soar. Solo travel with like-minded women is the ultimate recipe for self-care, personal growth, and lifelong memories. It’s not selfish; it’s necessary! Embrace the freedom, the laughter, and the connections. Trust me, this journey will empower you to shine even brighter as an ambitious woman and as a mom. So pack your bags, embrace the unknown, and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. You’ve got this, mama! Safe travels!
