Our first annual multi-day business retreat for Fempreneurs is here!

Thursday, November 8th through Saturday, November 10th 2018

Fempreneur Fest



You’ve been working HARD to grow your business and LOVE what you do!


✔ You’re busy doing lots of things and have built SOME areas of your business, but you’re still not getting the results you want…OR even if you’re getting good results- you just KNOW there are gaps that must be filled to grow to your next level.


✔ You’re READY to reach your goals, make more money, make a bigger difference, and have LESS STRESS and MORE FUN!

That can be a very frustrating and overwhelming place to be….If you’re not careful to take intentional action to address these gaps, you can become- or stay- STUCK and exhausted.


It’s time to get the STREAMLINED SUPPORT and GUIDANCE you need, AND recharge your batteries and creative juices!

You need clarity on what you want (and don't want). See what's possible!

You need services + prices that support your life + business, and that are compelling to clients.

You need a clear, tangible plan to create your next level business. Map it out!
