Create and Launch a Retreat

When you start creating live events and retreats, you and your business are transforming into a new level. Since the womb, I've always loved to travel. At the same time, many things changed when I decided to start creating and launching retreats in 2016 with our first retreat in Costa Rica.


Travel is in my blood. I have traveled to over 27 countries and hosted over 4 retreats. The first global destination for our wellness and business retreats was Costa Rica in 2016. From the start, I envisioned creating an all in one retreat experience with faith, wellness, marketing, business and travel including community service, adventure tours, and creating online courses.


Travel to Costa Rica was on my radar for years. I love to speak Spanish, culture, food and beaches. I thought why not combine my first trip in 2016 to Costa Rica with a retreat? It is no surprise that things divinely aligned with my choosing Costa Rica as my first global destination for the start of my Travel to 7 Continents.


I am not surprised that Costa Rica is our next retreat for August 2021. From the start, Costa Rica has held a special place in my heart.


In creating and launching a retreat like a boss, I create an outline, themes, practical steps to #createit, pricing and psychology, and promotions.


In a world where there is excitement with instant gratification including conversions of 3-5%, I decided to focus on being different. I set out to create exponential results. My heart is to create relationship long-term with lifestyle transformation and entrepreneurship.


Our focus is first on creating an opportunity I would love, relationships and communities.


To give you an idea of the retreat results:

  • Over 40% conversions in less than two months with first retreat.

  • >60% booked calls with business builders + influencers.

  • >60% closing rates & interest to end of 2017 with first retreat.

These results continued into our retreats with Cuba, Barcelona and London. This is all setting the stage for entrepreneurs, travel bloggers, and influencers. We have options for retreats, as well as lifestyle transformation entrepreneurship collaborations.

Part of my purpose is to blow up your brain with limitless possibilities. Whether you choose to attend our retreats, or create and launch a retreat like a boss with our online course, I want to help you create, transform and inspire.


As we now focus on our Costa Rica Retreat in August 2021, I am excited to see what creators, entrepreneurs, and coaches inspire with influence and create community.

Step 1: Outline the Retreat

When I first started creating wellness and business retreats, I brainstormed what types of retreats I wanted to create. I considered the community, and what they would love to experience. This intentional focus helped determine the all-inclusive theme of transformation for our global transformational retreats.


Let the divine, dreams and desires come together.

Imagine what you could create.
