Are you due for a Mindset Reset?
The Beach is the BEST place for that!
Warm water, clean air, sunshine...
Come learn about putting more FUN into your business and your life!
The 4-day retreat registration is $1500.
You can get a special BFF rate by signing up BEFORE 3.31.22. That's a TWO-for-ONE price for another woman entrepreneur you invite along!
When you click to register, you'll be asked for a non-refundable deposit. Then, 3 weeks later, the remaining registration amount will be charged to your credit card.
COVID is a real concern. That is why you will see us planning most of our activities to be held outdoors, including dinners.
The Omicron variant is slowing dramatically here, and more people are vaccinated than news might lead you to believe.
You will not see many masks, though the resort's current approach suggests masking indoors, and their staff wear masks.
If you are driving or are local, we will send you specific directions upon your registration. There is FREE parking at the hotel.
If you are flying, RSW (Fort Myers International Airport) is your best bet. Most major airlines fly here, and the fares are GREAT (think Southwest).
Now THIS is important!
Here in SWFL, we consider shorts our uniform. Or a beach coverup. MAYBE a sundress. NO makeup. Hats and sunglasses are ESSENTIALS.
Bring 2 swimsuits (pool AND Gulf), sandals and walking/running shoes, workout clothes (in addition to the gym in the resort, you have 5 miles of State Park trails outside your front door, and occasionally yoga is offered on the beach).
If you get a sunburn, you MAY want a light wrap in the evening after the sun goes down. Bring sunscreen and insect repellent!
We are very spoiled.
After you register, we'll ask for your food and drink preferences.
We'll stock the fridge in your suite with continental breakfast ingredients so you can enjoy your private balcony in the mornings.
Lunches are on your own. We'll have a list of dining options, plus there is a Publix supermarket about 10 minutes away where you can find whatever you want.
Two group dinners are planned with each person paying their own tab.
Women Business Owners of EVERY age (especially those of us who are in the second half!), no matter where their business is in its lifecycle, will gain enormously from this shift from their daily grind, not to mention the value of being in the company of these other women!
We encourage LOTS of conversations outside of the Breakout Sessions, to share and ask questions of each other!
Anticipation is such a big part of any time you afford yourself! You work HARD in and on your business. This retreat is to prepare you to continue that with some new-found skills for self-care. We stress "putting on your own oxygen mask, FIRST!"
Having said that, once you register, we will send you some prework (related to Catherine Price's book The Power of Fun for one), and ask about your preferences for other activities. When you arrive, you'll find your itinerary (closely mirroring the detailed agenda further down on this page) in your Welcome Pack.
If your bestie is another Woman Business Owner, by all means invite her! (We just may have a special registration offer if you bring another woman entrepreneur to our circle! Write Nancy directly for details.)
If your spouse/partner and/or kids won't demand all of your time while on retreat, and if they understand this is YOUR time, you may wish to include them for all or part of the time. Remember you might also extend your stay if there is availability!
Look, we have free will. You will get the most out of this experience by being present and PRESENT for the sessions. A gracious amount of free time is built into our schedule with great intention.
So much of ANY group event is not only about what you GET but what you BRING to the group.
There is one hotel on Lovers Key, and we have reserved a block of rooms there starting at $240. That is good until MARCH 18, or when our block is sold out, so please don't delay! We've extended Early Bird registration to match that.
All rooms are 1-bedroom suites with king-sized beds, a sofabed, and a full kitchen.
Upon your registration, we will send you the instructions to secure your reservation directly with the resort.
(You MAY be able to extend your stay at the Group rate. Reservations require 2-night deposit, with the remainder due 14 days before arrival. Local tax is 11.5% and there is a $15 daily resort fee.)
PLEASE WORK DIRECTLY WITH THE RESORT IF YOU WANT AN EARLY CHECK-IN OR LATER CHECK OUT.
You can certainly use one, especially if you're adding time on the front or backend of the retreat. Florida is not known for mass transit options. You'll want to make a reservation ahead of time. The hotel has free parking (NOT always the case).
Airport transfers can be done with Uber or Lyft, or taxi. Share your flight info and we'll try to pick you up; and we'll have a car heading back to the airport if you're flying home on Friday.
April is the DRIEST and SUNNIEST MONTH! So if you're a sun-worshiper like Nancy, you want to be outdoors as much as possible. It IS HUMID, and the temps range from a low of 66 to around 87 in the afternoon. There is generally a breeze on the waterfront that is most welcome.
We may adjust our schedule to avoid the hottest part of the day (when you might prefer the beach or another activity during your "Me Time"). And in case of rain, we may switch to sitting indoors rather than outside. We can also swap morning and afternoon plans without too much difficulty. You will be kept closely informed of any changes.
