Busy Business Owners Weekend Retreat

$997.00

When was the last time you had time to look at your business as a whole?

When was the last time you were 100% distraction free and could just power through and get everything you wanted to get done, done?

As busy business owners, the idea of taking time out can feel uncomfortable. You’re spread so thin between doing everything in your business and family life that it can seem selfish to get away from it all.  My reply to that is “What the heck is wrong with being selfish?”

Taking time out of being in your business to focus ON your business is one of your best time investments you can make. Check out the full description to find out what makes this retreat worth every cent.

It’s time to get out of your own way. Ditch the excuses & distractions. Take massive steps forward in your business.

Retreat Location Pumpkin_Hill

When was the last time you had time to look at your business as a whole?

 

Wouldn’t it be great to take a step back and see easier more cost and time effective ways of doing things?

  • Having time to call around and outsource
  • Having no distractions so you can sit, start and finish a task in one sitting
  • Being able to be proactive rather than reactive to opportunities
  • Look at your business through fresh eyes
  • Ultimately saving yourself time by not having to restart the thinking process every time you get interrupted

Some of what got achieved on our last retreat;

  • New logo outsourced
  • Bookkeeping done
  • Years worth of blogs scheduled
  • New products with higher yield developed
  • Re-targeted client avatars
  • Plans for the next 3-12 months
  • Cutting the fat & outsourcing to make the gift of time carry on past the weekend
  • The price increase that beautifully had an order less than 10 hours after the price increased ….. made money directly from being able to think clearly over the weekend.

How much are you holding yourself and your business back by not covering the basic building blocks, that you’ve been telling yourself “I’ll get round to it when I have time” that never comes?

Book yourself in some time. Do it now. No guilt. This time is NEEDED to move your business forward.

Pack everything you need (and more) to get all the jobs you’ve been putting off done. *A Guide Pack List is one of many Value Added Benefits you’ll receive 1 week out from the weekend to make sure you get the most from the weekend.

Go somewhere away from all distractions. No piles of laundry looking at you, no interruptions, no TV.

Investing time in your business a couple of times a year can take you from 1000’s of hours doing everything to a few hours managing and creating.

No one got into business to be swallowed by it. Time to take back your time!

Bonus – escape with people you can bounce ideas off. It’s great to get out of the limits of your own mind.

When I first saw the invitation for the Busy Business Owners Retreat I was intrigued but sceptical.  What could people who don’t understand my vision offer me? Plus, if I don’t know where I’m going with my business right now, how are they going to help me anyway? But my intrigue got the better of me and I clicked the button, although reluctantly at first.

Let me tell you – boy am I glad I went! Not only did it make me have a good honest look at why I started my business but also gave me focus to build my business into the future. With help and support from likeminded people I was able to reflect on what had worked and what hadn’t. From there I was able to build a path to take my company into the future.

One week on and I am already well on the way to rebranding, launching new products and stream lining processes within the business, and my life in general.

I have a workable business plan and focus and so many new ideas that the future looks exciting, not daunting.

The location was simply stunning and the food was even better! I would highly recommend the Retreat, the quiet and the tranquility were perfect for getting work done without the distractions of everyday life.
