Unveiling Retreat 2020-07-13T21:41:14+00:00

Now, more than ever, you must have a road map to navigate your way to even greater success.

How are you planning to get there?

I am talking about the specific process you have in place to guide you from where you are right now to a specific point within a specific time frame, not the thoughts that are in your head that you wish you could bring to life.

What if, unlike a conference filled to capacity, you could actually see tangible, forward movement within your business in a weekend?

What would be different about you, your business or your career.

If you had a clear and compelling road map with support and accountability all year long?

The Unveiling Retreat Business Intensive Weekend . . .

is an experience that provides the support, resources and guidance needed to ensure you, your business and your career are positioned to thrive, not just when all is well but when challenges arise. Our approach is a masterful blend of facilitated learning, exploratory coaching and experience-based consulting.

Let me tell you how that looks.

Facilitated Learning focuses on sharing insights, information and resources — a framework — to excavate your rich knowledge in order to help you bring your vision to life. We work through your knowledge and capabilities and leverage them to design a road map that helps you more effectively navigate your journey.

Experience-based Consulting is a solutions-driven approach focused on sustainable growth and profitability. We use our expertise and specialized experience to help you develop products, services and approaches that deliver measurable value to your clients, employers, partners, supporters and team members.

We will specifically share insights rooted in: leading effectively, creating compelling strategies, executing with excellence and creating exceptional experiences.

What will we focus on?

  • Generating significant revenue/income consistently
  • Attracting new clients/employers – the right fit
  • Retaining current clients
  • Establishing and strengthening key relationships
  • Creating and tweaking products, services and capabilities
  • Managing expenses and projecting revenue/income
  • Developing a relevant marketing strategy
  • Communicating clear value for client and opportunity attraction
  • Building a team without breaking the bank
  • Prioritizing yourself through radical self-care
  • Maintaining a strong, healthy personal foundation
  • Anticipating expected results
  • Measuring your actions’ effectiveness

You will leave with a plan that you will have already begun executing.

We do not believe in overwhelming you with information and sending you on your way to work through it on your own. Whether you lead a for-profit business, nonprofit organization or are navigating your leadership and personal development, having and executing a clear strategy is critical to your success.

  • What is different about this experience?
  • How many conferences, workshops, webinars and teleclasses have you attended?
  • Have you read lots of books, created vision boards, attended networking events?
  • How much have you actually put into action?
  • Often, the biggest hurdle to taking action lies in getting ready to take action.
  • This is an action-oriented experience.
  • It is time that you will carve out to do in a supportive setting what you have hesitated to do on your own.


If you are ready to move forward and need support to help you do so, or you understand the benefit of having a consistent, supportive, disciplined approach to bringing your vision to life, this experience is for you.
