2020 Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea

Oceanfront, Virginia Beach, Virginia

October 21 - 24, 2020

This is an incredibly beautiful, fun and powerful retreat experience exclusively for women who are heart-centered business owners, creative entrepreneurs and those with a mission!

I’ve designed this retreat experience to create an environment where you can…

Dream

Believe

Create

What’s next for you!

Things are changing so much in the world… and in your world. You need a place to be quiet and feed your soul so you can get in touch with what wants to emerge. You don’t need to push harder right now, you need a beautiful environment to be nurtured and you can connect with your soul’s whispers for what you want to create next.

This retreat is perfect for you if…

You are ready to own into your expertise in a big way and be a visible leader in your industry – and you know you need to nurture that vision and confidence so it can unfold in a much bigger way!

Know there is a deeper creative expression you want to unlock for you and your business.

You want to design, market and lead exclusive retreats in beautiful locations yourself! (My first piece of advice is to go on the type of retreats you want to lead. You’ll learn a lot about what you like, don’t like, how it runs and you’ll see the coaching, training, leading, mentoring, plus all the food/lodging details in person. Priceless.)

You know you want to grow your business in a different way that is more intentional where you are co-creating with spirit, nature and other like-souls.

You are genuinely seeking a new way of being in business that isn’t about hustling 24/7, it isn’t about selling your soul… you know it’s about letting so and letting your soul be in charge.

You are sick and tired of the same ol’ marketing and you want to create a way to connect with your tribe in a way that feels authentic and genuine to you both.

Since this is obviously an intimate experience, I like to talk with each prospective woman individually to make sure we are a right fit.

We’ll also discuss where you are in your business, leadership and growth plan so I can design the best program to meet the needs of the group.

So, if you are even a little interested, trust that intuitive hit – this will change your trajectory and path. Send me an email and let’s set up a time to talk more about the retreat.

Laura, you saved my mastermind butt! It was falling apart. I knew it and worst of all, my members knew it. I had a retreat coming up and I didn’t know what else to do but give them more stuff. Then I worked with you and it was like magic! I took back my leadership power (with less work!) and my members were thrilled! My next retreat was a huge success! I was never going to offer a mastermind program again and now I’m filling my next one! If you have never experienced Laura’s absolute magic as a retreat facilitator and leader, you owe it to yourself to make this happen! She is a true master at what she does. <3

Margie Beiswanger

I was at a place in my business where I didn’t want to “rinse and repeat” the success I’d created. I wanted something more, something different. But I didn’t know what direction to go or how to begin. Because of that, I was feeling less than enthusiastic about any further development of my business plans. I was stuck. Thoroughly stuck.

Enter Laura West and her amazing retreats! Her program allowed me a safe place to dream, play, and envision a new direction for my business. With her guidance, coaching, and the support of the group, I developed and experimented with a variety of new ideas and programs. My enthusiasm returned! The joy I had for my business expanded, and I am filled with creative energy for my business and its future.

She cheers me on and acknowledges me when I take a bold and courageous step to move forward in my life. Laura has the ability to get to the heart of the matter or the real issue quickly, and I appreciate that.
