Transformation in Travel + 5 Tools!


There are a number of ways people transform. They include health, wealth, business, giving, and travel among others. I have experienced and love all of them. However, I particularly think travel has an incredible transformation bonus as being able to get away from daily life to focus on transformation.

This is what led me to create experiences like retreats that combine all aspects of transformation. That, and my utter and complete love for travel!

I've always loved creating experiences - so I thought why not combine Getting Healthy, Making Money, and Building a Brand while helping others around the globe? Yes. Please!

As a second piece continuing from the first retreat in Cuba, this piece will feature my own takeaways + five tools to help you! For more insight on the set up, visit Week 1's post.

Differences from Week 1:

Different Villa

Increased Video

Group Grew

Scuba + Snorkeling

Plaza Vieja Tour

We were in Cuba 2/15-2/20 with Marissa Pedersen and Ashley Renne.

Creating Space

In between Week 1 + Week 2, I gave myself 3 days to spend some time on my own in Vedado. I stayed near Havana Libre at an Airbnb and got to walk everywhere! I journaled and had some key takeaways from week 1.

These included putting together a plan for:

1) Video

2) Social Media Automation

3) Influencer Growth

I spent time in Vedado walking around, visiting Hotel Nacional, and visiting local street markets, and simply resting.


Week 2: 2/23-2/27

We were in Cuba with:

Jen Morillo,

Carly Nogawski

Tre + Preston

After integrating and interviewing various influencers for the past several months, I selected these four entrepreneurs as a result of purpose, positivity, value, and future potential growth.

The five of us got to spend time on creating a life and business we love together in Cuba.

Insight:

Jen brought an element of being a Cuban american, experiencing her birthday in Cuba with us, and being a videographer!

Carly brought an element of instragram hyper growth, social media automation and management, and travel hacks for budget travel + more!

So what did each day look like?

Immersive. Out of the Box. Creative.


Day 1: Thursday, 2/23/2017

Arrival

The first day Jen and I woke up to simply relax, and then head to airport to get Tre + Preston with the Weekend Voyagers! I spoke into existence we would find them right away and literally as soon as we walked into the pick up area, I hear "Katrina" and it was Tre!

We headed back to villa and Carly arrived shortly after. She was already in Cuba with her family and met us at the villa to start off the retreat!

Welcome

We kicked up with having a welcome with the binders + swag bag + super amazing info on video set up and lighting with the Weekend Voyager Team!

Service

We then headed over to the photography school to share our stories + also give back to the school! If you want to learn more, head back to the blog, and read all about it!

Dinner + Workshops

We arrived back at the villa to an incredible dinner prepared by the chef + workshops on Purpose2Profits, Space Creator, Taming Time, and Seven Steps to Success.

The energy was amazing + the group vibed great! We couldn't believe we had only known each other a day!! The transformation was already under way!!

We continued to team up with our driver from week 1 - Yansel! I highly recommend him for your driving needs in Cuba! He was super friendly and professional and always early!!! You may reach him at 537-691-7262!
