This is not a surface-level-networking-feel-goodery.  There will be no name-tags, paper cups, or stale hotel lighting.  Ain’t nobody got time for that.


This time will be about reflection, introspection, and then some guided direction.

A set of hours reserved for focused and intentional productivity, in a busy world that so rarely affords us that opportunity.



2017-2018 CAREER PLAN

An actionable 12 month - 3 year plan based off the LIFE (work + personal) you've been thinking about.  Because "a goal without a plan is just a wish." You'll walk away with a Career Roadmap which will include a new Morning Routine,  strategy for your Weekly Planning, a fresh look at your "Relationship Checklist",  3 Potential Mentors, and actionable tools +  strategies to hit the ground running right there in that room.



You'll get on the spot Career & Life Coaching to answer specific questions about your personal path (along with the opportunity to hear other women get coached around their own paths) - this is a favorite amongst the retreat crew


From scientifically proven tips on how to follow through and keep your goals and habits strong, to crucial information about the way your brain works in relation to your emotions - you'll walk away with a nerdy amount of new data


I'll share my personal stories, struggles, successes on everything from leaving the 9-5, freelancing, starting my own business, working as a mom, wife, and friend... and what my Top 10 pieces of advice are



A stunning Career + Life Workbook and Planner with dates, roadmaps, exercises, words of wisdom, and stats you'll want to keep with you all year - plus you'll leave with an insane bag of swag from awesome female entrepreneurs


You'll hug a lot, laugh a lot, and maybe even shed a tear.  We keep it intimate, and we keep it real,  so  you leave our weekend with a pretty magical bond, community, and dare I say Soul Sisters?  


You guys... the chocolate tasting rocks, the cheese spread is to die for, and the champs caps it off so we leave with full bellies and full hearts (oh yea, yea - plus green juice, smoothies, breaky etc:))

She perfectly articulated the challenges I had been feeling, and her tools and advice allowed me to turn ideas into action. So much of what Kelsey shared resonated with me, and I was incredibly inspired by her recommendation to shift my thinking.

What the day looks like...


8-9am Coffee + Hugs

You'll be greeted by me (beware I'm a hugger), and a coffee bar with all sorts of yummy options + breakfast snacks- the healthy and unhealthy kind- green smoothies, fruit, and some local sweet treats.


9-12pm Work + Tribe

This time will be about reflection, introspection, and then some guided direction with work and relationships.  We'll talk about how life looks now, what we need, want, and how to craft relationships around that.  We'll write letters to friends and mentors, we'll  brainstorm new projects and jobs and rituals for our home, and we'll share (and finally get past) some of the things we desperately need to change to move forward. 


12-1pm Grub + Breathe

We've been nourishing our souls, time to nourish the bod.  Walks + good convo + cheese + bread + fruit + veggies - we’ll have options for everyone.


1-4pm Self + Plan

Time to put some pen to paper and make some plans.  We'll cover 12 month - 3 year Career Plans, Morning Routines, Weekly Planning along with passions, purposes, emotional needs, and emotional changes we need to make to help our growth  stay on track.


4-5pm Clink & Drink

“Pleasure without Champagne is purely artificial.” – Oscar Wilde.  Here is where we will say the I  love yous and goodbyes, accompanied  with a little music, champs, and hugs.


8-12pm Sunday- VIP Coaching

I’m reserving the following day to work with a small VIP group for some dedicated 1:1 Coaching so we can get into the details of your personal plan.  This is for people who want help implementing their plan, with some personal consulting and coaching immediately. 




We’ll do some guided soul searching, and practical planning to get clarity on:

  • A 12 month - 3 year Plan for your next big {or small} moves in your career, along with tools for creating new opportunities and overcoming reoccurring roadblocks
  • You'll finally get clarity on why your current job isn’t lighting you up—even if it looks great “on paper”
  • Declaration + honest truth on what your passions and purposes are, and how (or whether they should) co-exist in your work life
  • 3 New Mentors (this may be easier than you realize), and how you can cultivate those relationships
  • Specific Routines & Rituals you need to create more organization, productivity, adventure, and peace
  • A new Morning Routine & Weekly Plan you'll actually stick to
  • A Personal + Work Relationship Checklist to know where you need to grow (and how), plus where you need to let go and move on
  • Clarity around what you want moving forward - right down to every detail, including your salary, your schedule, your relationships, and your work life balance
  • Plus you'll get the option for 4 hours of  1:1 Coaching the next day... just you + me + a few other soul searchers
