How to Plan a Working Retreat — Part 1

by | Uncategorized

You want to get some great work done in the world, right? I know you do. And getting this kind of beautiful work you are doing born and shared broadly in the world is no small feat. There is so much to do – so much creativity and energy required.

So, you really must go on a working retreat.
I was on a working retreat today – will be again next Friday. Working retreats are when I get my best work done. I've written two books, largely on retreats, planned at least two major business overhauls and brought countless ideas to life, all on working retreats. I do them often. And I love them. Love them. I know you will, too.

I'm going to do a series of posts on how to pull a working retreat together for yourself, based on the three most common questions I get from clients and friends about working retreats:

  1. Where do I go on retreat?
  2. How do I afford a great working retreat?
  3. What do I do on a working retreat?

Watch this video where I talk more about why working retreats are so awesome – and get you started thinking about your own retreat:
