No Fluff. Real Results.

Take Your Business and Yourself to The Next Level

The LOLU Retreat Blends the Practical with the Transformational

Each day focuses on key activities and exercises that deliver your:

Next Level Vision: We'll start by defining your next level vision and use this to create an ecosystem in your business where success becomes inevitable.

Next Level Plan: We'll systematically break down your vision into goals, projects, activities, and habits that will fast track your results and over-deliver on value for your clients.

Next Level You:  We'll help you step into more of the visionary leader role that your business and your team needs in order to level up.

We know you're not in this for the quick wins. You built your business to make an impact on your customers and those you care most about. You want freedom and flexibility and you want the confidence to know that what you are building will last. 

We'll make sure you are able to do just that by focusing on:  

  • More Profit, More Impact: We'll build a profit based plan that let's you broaden your impact, in a way that doesn't have you working around the clock and adding more to your already full plate. 

  • Balance Redefined: Balance isn't bullshit. Not only is it possible, it is necessary for sustainable success in business. We'll explore a modern and lasting take on balance that you can begin to apply right away.

Together, we’ll:

  • Define your next level of leadership and business growth
  • Map out your profit and scale plan
  • Identify where you can lean out and do less to achieve more
  • Set your intention for the year and create the ecosystem to make it a reality

What's Different About This Event

We know that success isn't about doing more.  It's about finding the few things that will make the biggest impact and optimizing the shit out of them.

As a result, 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 roadmap and 90-day plan that you can start taking action on right away.  

Best of all, you will be in good company with a small intimate group of powerhouse entrepreneurs who are trail blazers, dream chasers and magic makers.


The Lean Out Level Up Retreat will be the best investment you make this year - in your business, and in yourself.

Here's what you'll experience at the Lean Out Level Up Retreat

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 2 full days working ON your business and building your plan for impact, profitability and sustainable success. 

But don't worry, we've creating an environment for reflection and connection too.  


Clarity and Focus

You will leave this event with the clarity and focus you need to make the next year and 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.


Get Your Specific Business Questions Answered

One of attendees favorite parts of the retreat is "Lean Coffee Hour". 

We end each day with a focus block dedicated to answering and digging deep on your specific business questions

Unlike other events where attendees have to sign up for hot seats and hope they get selected, every attendee gets their burning business questions answered during lean coffee hour. 

It's one of the many benefits of keeping each LOLU Retreat small and intimate with powerhouse entrepreneurs who want nothing more than to help each other succeed.  



One of the best things you can do to level up is to surround yourself with people who think different.⁣

▫ People who have achieved the next level of success⁣
▫ People who are outside your industry⁣
▫ People with different experiences⁣
▫ People with different perspectives⁣

At this retreat, you will find yourself building connections with the people who will help you get to your next level, from your retreat host to the other attendees.

We'll have breakout rooms and lean coffee sessions designed for you to get personalized feedback and build relationships with other attendees.


Tools for Sustainable Success

We'll work through powerful exercises and discussions to not only transform and level up your business and yourself but to also build sustainable success so you always have the confidence that your business will thrive.

As an attendee of the LOLU Retreat, you'll receive an exclusive workbook to compliment the activities we do together, as well as a 90-day Lean Out Planner to keep you focused on making your big bold goals a reality. 

You'll have all the tools you need to build sustainable success both at the event and after.


" I feel like I've had so many light bulb moments in this retreat... not only am I walking away knowing that my business will be even more profitable,

I know that I'll be able to spend less time in my business and more time ON my business,

and even more important than that, I'll be able to focus on activities that really feel pleasurable for me and really allow me to operate in my zone of genius. 

I can not say enough amazing things about this retreat."

-Melissa Cassera, Entrepreneur and Screen Writer
