10 Tips for Holding an In-Person Retreat

10 Tips for Holding an In-Person Retreat

Last week I did not get a blog post to you or a video blog post because I was busy holding a retreat for my high level leader business partners on my doTERRA team. I attempted to bring six women together, four got there, but I was asking them to travel from really far away. I brought them to my hometown, put them up at our local boutique hotel, and we had the most amazing day and a half together. I'm here to share my tips from this from organizing my first retreat. 

I've been wanting to do something like this for over two years and I finally just said I'm doing it. I'm doing it in a way that feels really good to me, and so I'm going to share what I learned about this. 

While I'm an introvert and I don't love big, large scale events, I love connecting with people in a more intimate environment. So why would you even want to hold an in person retreat? Again, whether it's for some customers or clients of yours, let's say you're a nutritionist and you want to hold a weight loss retreat or a stress free retreat, or you're just being called to hold an in person retreat for your customers or clients. Or, if you're like me and you have a network marketing team, and there are several people that are helping you build this business, then you might want to bring them together for more of a business retreat. Even if you don't have a network marketing team, let's say you have a team of people who help you, like assistants or copywriters or whatever, wouldn't it be lovely to bring them together to envision the next six months or a year of your business so that everyone is on the same page together.

That is why you might hold an in person retreat, because there is nothing better than true connection.

How I went from $5K a year to $5K a month as a holistic nutritionist (+ a free download)

How I went from $5K a year to $5K a month as a holistic nutritionist (+ a free download)

I'm going to do something that most other business owners don't do, and share my real income numbers from every year of my business, up to and including the time of writing this.

Why don't more business owners/coaches do this? Because, frankly, it's terrifying to think that a whole bunch of my ideal clients (i.e. you reading this right now) will see my real numbers, know that I'm not running a 6 figure nutrition practice, and immediately dismiss all the knowledge I have about running a "successful on the outside" holistic business.

Well, screw that, you need to see these numbers and the timeline so that I can show you what I was actually doing in my business, and what happened to my income because of it. There are some really good lessons hidden in these numbers, and I think you deserve to see them, even if *I* am terrified of showing them to you.

My top 3 mistakes from my first year in business as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist

My top 3 mistakes from my first year in business as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist

Starting up the first iteration of my holistic nutrition practice feels like a lifetime ago. In reality, it was 2008, and if I had to count the business lessons that I've learned since then, I think it's been approximately 592,603. Not that I'm keeping track or anything.

Back then, I was fresh out of nutrition school, having just graduated as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) from CSNN. Me and my then boyfriend (now husband) decided that we were going to move back to our hometown. There weren't a ton of job options for me, so, by golly, I was going to start my own business!

For the record, I don't say 'by golly'. I swear like a sailor, but 'by golly' seems to sum it all up as to how utterly and absolutely naive I was about being an entrepreneur.

I read, let's say, 3 online articles about opening a business. The first one I think was called "How to open a business in Canada". That was the extent of my research.

I committed every single common mistake that a ton of budding entrepreneurs make, not because I was ignorant or dumb, but just because I didn't know what I didn't know! I figured that since I was moving to the heart disease capital of Canada (I wish I was joking with that statistic), people needed to be healthy. And I was a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, wanting to help people be healthy. How could I fail?

Well, let's look at the numbers, shall we?
