    Mojo duo brings positive thinking to Loudoun

    It happens to people of all ages, on a regular basis: That feeling of being overwhelmed, anxious and then more negative thoughts overtake the positive ones. Over time, you start losing your “mojo,” or passion in life.

    So, how do you get it back? How do you find it in the first place?

    This is where the “MoJo Duo” comes in.

    Elaine Stephanos and Steve Conlan, of Ashburn, have both experienced losing their mojo – but they've found it now. As trained and certified Tony Robbins life coach speakers, they're on a mission, and have launched the “Loco’s Got MoJo” TM movement.

    The duo are working their way around Loudoun County with the hope of showing people how to double their mojo. 

    “We want to educate people so they develop a healthy mindset and practice healthy living habits, resulting in a community and family members enjoying a fulfilling life,” Stephanos said.

    Stephanos and Conlan are hoping to make a big impact, but aim to start locally. 

    “If we, Loudoun County, could set the example as the launch pad of how to come together and boost your mojo, from the ground up, we will be vibrating at such a high level of positivity, our country would explode with mojo,” Stephanos said. 

    “Wouldn’t it be great to educate and empower our teachers so that positivity will trickle down to the kids?”

    Stephanos said. “We all have it, and some people have a hard time accessing it. We teach you how to unleash it.”
    Conlan and Stephanos met at a mutual friend’s 40th birthday party several years ago.

     “We talked for six hours straight,” Stephanos said. “We connected on a very deep and spiritual level. This was the seed for how we became business partners. Our spirits are burning to share how we got through all the stuff we both experienced and show people how to get through the challenging circumstances to get to the other side,” Stephanos said.

    “If you project positivity, more positivity comes to you,” she added.

    The MoJo Duo offers a variety of different types of workshops, boot camps and personal life coaching programs, which can be tailored to the specific needs of a company or individual.

     They recently presented a workshop to the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce. 

    “What we think affects our body,” Conlan describes in one of their recent workshops. “We can give you tools to control the way you want to feel. You can command your brain and change your state on your own,” he added.

    This made an impact with Tony Howard, president of the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce. 

    “What they taught us is that we have more control over the events of the day and our attitude than we realize. Having a better attitude helps you to be more productive,” Howard said. “They taught us some very useful techniques and tools for how you can turn thing around and control your own attitude,” he added.

    “The results we are getting are so amazing,” said Stephanos. “We hope to do these workshops at businesses, schools, organizations and more and we can tailor it to each location. We are committed to expanding the reach to minimize suffering and maximize mojo,” she added.

    They envision companies investing in their employees and asking them to come and educate and empower their employees. “One person brings down the energy of a group, we want to spread this empowering attitude. It will have a huge impact.”

    The Mojo Duo are offering two upcoming “Double Your MoJo in 60 Seconds” workshops: Belmont Country Club Hunt Civic Center, March 29, 2-4 p.m., open to the public; Life Time Fitness - Loudoun Lounty, April 5th 2-4 p.m., open to the public.

    Gandhi didn’t sell tapes in the lobby.


    Point Number 1: Stop calling Loudoun County (LoCo). It sounds stupid and means “Crazy” in Spanish. The county has a proper name and it should be used, not shortened for the linguistically lazy

    Point Number 2: This whole MoJo spin is little more than one handing over their money so somebody can make them feel good with motivational speeches. This is the ultimate snake oil with lipstick. I’m surprised LTM is giving these con artist free advertising.


    What a waste of taxpayer money.

    I can watch a you tube video on similar topics for free.

    My friend is a motivational speaker (which appears what these 2 are). He makes good money, sometimes 15K per speech.

    Waste of time and money…
