Event Description

WHO IS THIS RETREAT FOR? Are you a woman business owner or a woman entrepreneur who always hustling? Do you feel like you are so busy to take a moment to relax and have a "me time"? Do you sometimes feel guilty to take a nap in the middle of your workday because you're just so tired? Do you keep delaying your vacation because you can't step away too long from your company? Well, this retreat is made for you. We all are busy women who are trying to achieve a lot of our goals for the business and take care of so many different things in our personal and professional life. Sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves. We know we need to pay more attention to our self-care, but why don't we? If you feel the same way, this retreat is for you. We believe in the restorative power of retreats. We also believe in unplugging and offering nurturing care to your sweet self. We realized that we all need this kind of self-care retreat for ourselves, especially after experiencing burnouts or even to avoid burnouts. This retreat is a guided stepping away from your everyday life and the busy entrepreneurial hustle. This retreat will help inspire you to learn to get more focus, be present, and taking control to prioritize your self-care.
