In 2022, I had this dream of hosting a retreat because as a solo business owner, I often struggle with finding time to implement all the things I’ve learned from webinars, online courses, etc. I am always busy working on my business, serving my clients, and taking care of my family.
After attending a 2-day in-person workshop in 2023, I realized that when you are away from your daily grind, you have the opportunity to focus on yourself while being surrounded by a group of like-minded entrepreneurs. Doing the work together is more fun and the energy is magical! I felt inspired and with the new skills I learned, I can be more strategic about how to help my clients and grow my business.
BUSINESS & WELLNESS RETREAT LOCATION
I started planning for the retreat and I found the perfect location – Artemis Hill Farm in Chester, NY.
Daniela Nastasi is the founder and owner of Artemis Hill Farm, where she rescues horses and other animals that help bring smiles to all who visit. She also founded Cavalli Healing Hearts, a public charity providing sanctuary to rescued horses as well as cultivating healing relationships between humans and horses.
I learned about Daniela’s farm when we connected on LinkedIn. I love her mission and her story. I knew I wanted to host my first retreat there.
BUSINESS & WELLNESS RETREAT – YOGA AND SPEAKERS
Of course, I couldn’t do this retreat alone, so I reached out to my best friend and my branding photo session clients to help me make this retreat a success. They all said yes and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I want to take this time to introduce them to you.
Faith Miller is my best friend, we’ve known each other for more than 15 years. We were working together in the same department at our corporate job. She is the owner of Yoga with Faith.
