A relaxing women's retreat for creative entrepreneurs where passions are reignited and friendships are made

November 8, 2020

Northern Kentucky

It's not a secret that 2020 has been tough on us all.

As a small business owner, no one knows this better than you.

This November, we'll gather together to reflect on what 2020 has taught us.  We'll dive deep into the ways that this year has shaped our business and how to be stronger for it.  Sharing meals & concepts.   Breaking down the dynamics of exactly what is necessary to create a lasting business, with clients who are your biggest fans. Regardless of where you are in your business, you will leave this retreat inspired, packed with fresh ideas, and with a new community of friends.  We can't wait to see you there.   

Let's take a little time

Looking for the INTERNATIONAL retreat?

Take Me There

I was able to identify what triggers those feelings of self-doubt, how to push past the fear, and what makes me & my business unique. I came away from the weekend with new friends, new perspective, and new goals.

I don't even know where to start. I'm feeling all the things after this weekend. I'm feeling so inspired - creatively & personally. I'm feeling excitement for what the future of my business is going to look like. I'm feeling the joy of community & connection with fellow creative business owners.

"Best investment I've made for myself as a female and business owner! I love this group of women!"

relax & reset from 2020 in the company of other creative female business owners

What do you consider a creative business owner?

Women who are serving clients with their hearts - such as, photographers, event planners, hair and makeup artists, yoga instructors, interior designers...the list goes on and on! 

What is the group size?

The group will stay intimate in nature as all of our retreats do.  The retreat will have 3 staff members, and up to 15 attendees.

Is there an overnight stay option?

While we won't be staying in the house overnight, there is another house on property available for rent for a group as well as other hotels in the area.  Please email us for information on how to make a girls weekend trip out of this time!

I have a special diet, can you accommodate? 

On the application, you'll see a spot to let us know any diet needs you have & we will absolutely do our best to meet those at all meals. If you have specific concerns, please feel free to email with questions.

how do i get there?

Our retreat home for the day is nestled amongst the trees on a peaceful piece of land in Northern Kentucky.  A 30 minute drive from the heart of downtown Cincinnati, it's an easily accessable hop away from the city while still having the peace of the countryside. (The address will be provided to you after booking your spot.)


Frequently asked questions

Over the last 14 years, I've poured my heart & soul into creating a business that is known for serving people well. 

In that time, I've helped many other business owners along their own journey in digging deep to find their own unique voice & gifts.  This retreat is a time for us to do just that, in group form.

Intentionally scheduled for the end of the year, this is a time of looking back to learn & looking forward to growth. 2020 brought with it much unexpected change & transition. Together, we’ll unpack what can be learned from this year & how to make our businesses stronger going forward.

I hope you'll join us.
