January 16th - 18th in San Diego, CA


A powerful 3-day immersive workshop focused on:

Strategy ✧ Planning ✧ Transformation ✧ Next-Level Results


About the Retreat

As business owners, we often get so busy running our business that we don’t make enough time for ourselves. It’s hard enough to find the time to work ON our business, let alone make time for a vacation. Well, it's time that changes, don't you think?

It will be the best investment you will make this year - in your business, and in yourself.

One part luxurious destination retreat + One part strategic planning workshop

Expect an unforgettable experience full of breakthrough moments and game changer experiences as you strategically plan your next 90 days of growth and profitability.

Join a small circle of committed business owners in sunny San Diego.  We intentionally keep each retreat small so each attendee gets personalized attention and insight into their plan for the year and the next 90 days.

No fluff, Real results

What's Different About This Event

We are all about blending the practical with the transformational, and focus on you stepping into more of the visionary leader role that your business needs in order to level up.
  • It's not about doing more, it's about finding the few things that will make the biggest impact and optimizing the shit out of them.
  • You won't walk away with an overwhelming list of things to do, you will leave with a whole lot of clarity and focus, and a roadmap for success and scale for YOUR business.
  • With uninterrupted space and dedicated focus time, you will build out your 90-day plan that you can start taking action on right away.  
  • You will be in good company with a small intimate group of powerhouse women who are trail blazers, dream chasers and magic makers.

Action Packed Days

This isn't an event that is all talk with you taking notes and trying to keep up (or worse, trying to keep awake). 

This is hands on, action packed, and beautifully intense.  You will spend 3 full days working ON your business and building your plan for the next 90 days focused on profitability and sustainable success. 

But don't worry, we've built in plenty of time for fun and decompression too.  


Time for Reflection & Rejuvenation

The days will require for you to dig deep.  The nights will allow for reflection and rejuvenation. 

There will be time to relax and reflect on your business and on everything you experienced that day while enjoying the hot tub or taking in the breathtaking views from the patio.  On the 1st night, plan to spend the evening enjoying conversations and cocktails with other attendees at the poolside social. 

We are all about Lean + Luxe and the retreat provides both.


Clarity and Focus

You will leave this event with the clarity and focus you need to make the next 90 days successful beyond your wildest imagination. 

Expect some serious breakthroughs and game changer moments, and an action plan that is fully aligned to the big vision and goals you have for your business.


The Location

Located in San Diego, this private space has a luxe resort vibe with its saltwater pool, hot tub, and breathtaking views. Combined with its comfortable and homey interior, it's the perfect space to disconnect and focus on the next level of your business.
