Can you believe the page has turned to November?
The fall is such a beautiful time to host a retreat. My heart is still full from the delight we created at my own event, Bloom + Grow Live, in late September. And I am loving seeing all of the posts our Invite & Delight and Front Porch Club sisters have shared on retreats they have hosted this season, too.
As we move into fall and winter seasons I have such a sense of gratitude for the connections we make at live events and what that does for us personally. There’s really nothing like being in a room full of brilliant, like-minded people who are excited to learn and grow!
This will be the first of a regular retreat planning blog series. Each post will be full of inspiration, insights, and resources to support you on creating your live event experiences in your business.
Speaking of growing, let’s celebrate one of our Invite & Delight program students, the lovely Rasheda Hatchett from The Audacious Woman Leadership Retreat!
Rasheda hosted her first event earlier in October and it went off with flying colors! Here’s what Rasheda said about her first retreat:
“It was an amazing success and completely sold-out! You can do it, keep going!”
Helpful Insider Expert Tip: Linen Rentals
Using a fabulous rental linen for a pop of color or glam can make a big impact. These you get shipped right to your door before your event and you ship back after. They are an investment but can really make a WOW factor in your photographs and marketing. My two favorite ship to your door linen rental vendors are Nuage Designs and BBJ La Tavola.
