You’ve been in business for a few years and you’ve had some great success.
You’re a self-starter and you’ve worked hard.
And when you can get the time (which is rare these days), you realise there are still so many more things you want to achieve.
You feel a rush of excitement as you remember the spark that got you starting your business.
And then… just as quickly… there’s that voice in the back of your head that says “Yeah, but you’re so busy already, how can you possibly do THAT?!”
Or maybe you just can’t get the time or focus to even get clear on what “THAT” is!
Or perhaps you’ve even stopped dreaming… and you’re wondering… "Is this as good as it gets?"
If so, you're not alone.
Running a business… especially a busy one like yours, can feel like a marathon…
And you can get tired and sometimes even lost along the way!
That’s why you need to regularly give yourself space to refresh, reset and recharge!
Because stopping, and taking the time for YOU to dream and fall in love with your business again, is one of the BEST financial decisions you can make!
When you have clarity and focus, nothing can stop you!
You, me and a small group of like-minded businesswomen sharing a 5-day all-inclusive experience to REACH new goals and BREAKTHROUGH to even more success... all in a stunning luxury resort in Hawaii!
When you join us for the HerBusiness REACH Retreat, you will be part of a small and select group of women business owners who will spend five days together in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, learning the practical 5-step process to re-imagine, re-engineer and REACH a new level in your business.
This is where you will get that much-needed time for YOU.
You'll step out of the day-to-day hustle and bustle and get a new, clear and more inspired perspective on what you want for your business AND how to get it...
WHAT: The REACH Retreat — A 5-day Business Retreat for Women Who Want to Make a Dent in the World
WHEN: 29 October - 2 November 2018
WHERE: Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa, Hawaii (divine!)
INCLUDES: Everything! You get 5 nights luxury twin-share accommodation / all meals / all tuition from expert mentors / special "surprise" experiences + workshop materials
(All you need to take care of is your flight to and from the venue).
Enjoy a balance of:
A new surge of energy for your business - After the REACH Retreat you will be re-energised. People will wonder what your secret is as you recapture the spark you had when you first started your business and you find it so much easier to take action, set goals and stay focused.
A sense of being supported - When you’re the one out in front in your business it can feel isolating. Friends and family often don’t understand. And there are some things you can’t talk to your team about. During the REACH Retreat you’ll find your support network. Other business owners who will become your cheerleaders and your sounding boards who will support you as you REACH further in your business.
More money! - YES! Being in business is about making money… and while you’ve had success in this area, you know there’s a LOT more potential in your business than you are tapping right now. Use the 5-Step REACH Process to see the opportunities in your business and get clear on the specific actions you can take to turn that potential into real dollars.
A clear plan - Using the 5-step REACH Process, you will develop a clear plan. With this plan (we call it a "REACH Map") you’ll be able to go back into your business feeling “ready” and with a clear set of actions - now you know what you can STOP doing as well as being laser-focused on what you need to START doing to get the results you want.
A bigger game - If you’ve been feeling for a while that you want to “step things up” - make more money, grow your business, take on a new project or expand into a new product line - whatever it is… when we think about playing a bigger game, it can feel intimidating. Making the “bold” move often sounds good in theory but can be harder to do in practice. Procrastination, fear, lack of knowledge, can all kick in. The REACH Retreat is all about supporting you to take that BIG action and create that new SHIFT.
Have some fun - It can all get so serious in business, juggling so many deadlines and priorities and demands. Isn’t it time you had some more joy and fun again? Just for YOU? And it makes good business sense too. When you can make life and business enjoyable, you make it sustainable and you magnetically attract opportunities and great people to you.
It all starts the moment you arrive at the luxurious Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa on Hawaii’s Big Island.
Perched on the iconic lava cliff tops of this ancient and stunningly beautiful island, you look out over the majestic Keauhou Bay.
Fittingly, “Keauhou” means “new beginnings”, and that’s exactly what this experience will be.
… and you’ll feel it right away…
There is something very special about this place… and it’s not just the great expanse of ocean, the graceful manta rays gliding past nor the palm trees gently swaying in the tropical breezes...
There is a sense of possibility here.
I felt it the very first time I arrived.
It was 1993.
I was 26 years old and feeling a little lost. I’d been working and travelling overseas for a while and I came home feeling at a loose end.
When I look back now, I can see I was soul-searching. I wanted more from life.
I could feel all this amazing potential that was within me… but I just didn’t see how to free it up… how to create the life I sensed was possible for me.
A friend had recommended I go along to an event called the Excellerated Business School for Entrepreneurs being run in Hawaii at the very same place I want to take you (it’s had a major and stunning refurbishment since then).
At the time, the Business School was a giant leap outside my comfort zone… both financially (I saved for months to get the money together) and mentally (I had never invested so much in my business education before).
But I remember just having this “feeling” that, even though it felt far out of my reach and I was fearful about going, this was something I really needed to do.
So I made the commitment to go… I felt at the time like I was being pulled towards the next BIG step I needed to take.
And maybe right now you are being pulled towards YOUR next big step or idea.
Maybe you’re even doing some soul-searching — sensing the potential in your business, but just not quite sure how to get to the next stage.
It could be you want to expand, re-design or find a new direction for your business. It might be that you want to break through to a new way of “being” that frees you from past obstacles and limiting beliefs about your success and enables you to feel more empowered, confident and in control.
Or it might be that you’re “stuck” and you need a reboot, or you’re ready to stop playing small and finally get the financial rewards you know are possible for you.
If so, joining me in Hawaii might be just what you’re looking for.
The new perspectives I got when I made that leap to attend the Business School in Hawaii totally changed the course of my life.
And I DID go on to find my next BIG idea, and that led to two successful businesses in Australia and in the US.
Those businesses went on to help hundreds of thousands of people, creating financial freedom for me and my partner in the process.
And, most importantly, I finally felt I was living on purpose. Now I was doing EXACTLY what I was meant to be doing — and my business was really serving ME.
And as I look back now at the picture of that young woman who was making her first foray into really seeing and believing in her future, I am so glad she made that leap.
Here is a picture of me at that life-changing Business School in Hawaii, which really marked my turning point as a businesswoman. The time when I first caught a glimpse of my potential and how to REACH it.
And part of getting there was being with a group of other business owners — and in being away from the day to day grind — to really be able to create something transformative.
So I know, in the deepest place in my heart, the power of making this trip to Hawaii…
That’s why I have been back many times since that first visit — to recharge, to reconnect and to re-create. There is just something magical about this place!
And this time I want to take you with me...
I’ve dreamed for many years of bringing a small, intimate group of HerBusiness members to experience the transformation that I know is possible… and I am beyond thrilled to see the REACH Retreat become a reality.
Just imagine yourself experiencing this…
When we arrive, you will have some time to get settled into your beautifully-appointed room and wander the picturesque grounds… the ocean just a stone’s throw away.
Then it’s time to say Aloha to your fellow Retreat participants at a special Welcome session followed by cocktails and a traditional Haleo Luau and celebratory dinner.
It’s here you will begin to get a sense that, by the end of these 5 days, these women will become your friends, supporters and cheerleaders, for life.
Because this is not your usual event.
This is a special gathering that goes beyond what you might have experienced before.
At some point during these 5 days you will feel this shift too.
The shift from feeling like you’re part of a “program” to feeling more like you’re sharing an experience with your “ohana” (your family). And feeling the shift that's imminent for your business.
Each morning we will meet on the terrace at Paakai Point overlooking the bay for our morning ritual to prepare ourselves mentally, physically and mindfully for the day ahead. Breathing in the morning Mana (Mana is a life energy that flows through all things) as we journal, reflect and refocus and open ourselves to new learnings, before heading to the open-air Lanai for a healthy breakfast.
Because in order to look after your business… you need to look after you. And that’s a BIG part of what will be happening at the HerBusiness REACH Retreat.
This is YOUR time to rejuvenate. To reconnect with what you want to create.
After a glorious morning, and a leisurely breakfast it will be time to meet up in the Hualalai meeting room with its full glass doors opening out onto the ocean.
Here is where you will find a new perspective (and a new plan!) for your business.
The journey you will take over the next 5 days is one that has been designed from beginning to end to help you REACH your business goals… with time built in for you to enjoy this magnificent island along the way.
The REACH process unfolds over the 5 days we are together, with a mix of study and learning, practical processes and exercises, discussions and inspiration.
This is a life-changing 5 days for your business, which takes you away from your daily grind so you can really think clearly and reach for new goals.
Each day we explore a new dimension of the 5-part REACH process...
As we say Aloha we acknowledge where you are today. Because moving forward starts with knowing where you are now, we shine a light on the journey that got you to this point. You get time to see things as they really are right now, to acknowledge the current reality and to bring your whole self to this experience.
This day is about doing a business audit - inspecting your business and looking back. What's worked? What do you need to keep? What's not working? What do you want to stop?
Because moving forward takes making the time to Pause and recalibrate. Before the day is through you’ll create your ‘Here and Now’ map so that you have a strong foundation to launch from, as you start to design your future.
Today you start to create the ultimate picture of the life and business you want. This is your permission to dream and reach for the stars as you clarify a new vision. You'll reconnect with your inspiration. Just like the Hawaiian Goddess Pele, known for her passion and power, destroys the old to create the new, so too will you harness and focus your passion, enthusiasm and attention towards the new future, the “prime dream” you wish to create. Breaking through old ways and expanding on what is possible for you. This day is about creating your Strategic Plan.
Knowing where you want to go is one thing… but how do you get there? It takes a level of personal power to make things happen — a level of boldness.
And it takes a solid business plan. During this part of the REACH Process you will start to create your 'Realisation Map'… this is where you’ll work on the plan for your “prime dream” and map out just how you're going to make it happen.
This is unlike any plan for your business you’ve ever done before and it could be the missing ingredient you’ve been waiting for.
Because when you connect your intention with your vision, you get a powerful clarity about exactly what you need to do next… and a confidence and enthusiasm to do it!
Now you know where you want to go and how to get there… how will you communicate your Vision and your Plan? How will you convey the valuable gift you have to share? Because you have something important to give. And the congruence, enthusiasm and clarity in your story makes all the difference.
Who do you most want to communicate with? Who is it that you want to make an impact on and to create the most difference for? How do you charge what you're worth?
This part of the REACH Process is all about helping you share and communicate your VALUE in a way that naturally draws people to you.
Today you start to create the ultimate picture of the life and business you want. This is your permission to dream and reach for the stars as you clarify a new vision. You'll reconnect with your inspiration.
Today is about passion and power, destroying the old to create the new.
Today you harness and focus your passion, enthusiasm and attention towards the new future, the “prime dream” you wish to create. Breaking through old ways and expanding on what is possible for you.
This day is about creating your Strategic Plan.
And all along the way you will experience one magical moment after another…
From cocktails at sunset…
To quiet times for reflection, where you can find your way to the water’s edge to watch the giant manta rays that regularly swim by…
To eating some amazing food and enjoying the famous Hawaiian hospitality and culture…
At the end of the Journey it’s time to celebrate!
You’ve come so far in just a short time.
Looking back at the woman who arrived you can see how this precious space you’ve given her has brought about a transformation!
You’re clear about “where to from here” and you feel more connected to your purpose than you have been in years.
And you’re ready to go into action!
It truly feels GREAT to have given yourself this gift.
We celebrate that gift with a gorgeous lunch at Ray’s on the Bay where you will sip on cocktails and enjoy a Hawaiian feast. We began with Aloha (welcoming in the Divine Breath) and now we end with Mahalo (gratitude) as we farewell our REACH family and give thanks.
And then it’s time to head home, clear, confident and with a map and a plan for reaching your goals and achieving your vision.
Coming on a journey like this is as much about the people who travel with you, as it is about the road you take.
So I need to make sure everyone who comes along is going to support making this an awesome experience.
I owe it to the group to ensure we strike that balance of the right energy and focus and presence… and that each person will be committed to the REACH process.
I also owe it to you. My goal is for this to be EXACTLY what you are looking for right now, to help you grow and thrive in your business.
As you can tell from what we’ve got planned, this is a really special experience.
And you know that making all this happen — including all your accommodation and meals and special outings takes a lot to put together…
So it’s an expensive event.
And it’s not for everyone.
But if you know the value of taking some time out to completely recharge in body, mind and spirit… and what that can mean for your life and your business… then you’ll also know how valuable this precious time will be for you.
My advice to you, even if you’re just thinking about it, is to apply now. Because this is only for a select few and places will fill fast.
We are keeping our numbers small and intimate, so you know you’re going to get a lot of special care and attention during our time together.
So with that in mind, I’ve included the link below to apply.
Once you’ve filled out the application, I will be in touch.
I so hope you will join me.
I’m putting my heart and soul into this retreat and I’d love to share it with you.
Here’s to doing what you love,
Suzi Dafnis CEO, HerBusiness
