Connect with other business owners to talk business, learn and grow. You may even leave with some new friends!
freedom from distractions
Get some time away from your home or office and the distractions that come with it so you have time to focus on your goals.
pays for itself
The time you spend working on your business in the company of others, is worth it! You save time, money, and come back to your business refreshed and reinvigorated.
Christy is so knowledgeable and she doesn’t hold back in sharing all of her knowledge and experience. She really took the time to understand what I wanted for my business and helped find a business model that would work for me.

I came into the retreat with just a broad idea - I had no clue where to start and wasn’t even sure if what I was thinking was possible, but Christy was so patient and brainstormed with me until we had a plan in place.
The group work was a great opportunity to meet and discuss with others who are in a similar stage.
There are a few different types of retreats. Join our kickstarter retreat if you are in the beginning stages of your business. You should have a solid idea and be ready to get started. If you aren't quite ready for that, check out my mentoring sessions. Our executive retreats are for people who are at least 1 year into their business. You should have a grasp on your business model and want to take some time to work on systems, productivity, growth, and/or strategic planning.
Our field trips are for anyone! This is an opportunity for us to travel in small groups to soak up some inspiration.
Most of the retreats will be located in Lincoln, Nebraska. I will also be hosting a few retreats around the country. If you'd like for me to host a retreat in your area, let me know!
This is up to you! I do quarterly retreats for myself but I don't always feel like I would need to be with a group each time. If you value the feedback from other business owners and the comraderie, 2-4 retreats a year might be beneficial.
The cost will typically include meals, guided mentorship, two mentorship phone calls (1 before and 1 after) and a little swag bag. Some of the retreats may include more or less. You'll always want to check the description of the retreat you'd like to sign up for.
Choose your date and sign up! If you need more information regarding a specific retreat, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
This will depend on the location and each retreat will list the maximum number of spaces. The majority should be around 4-6 people. Keeping it small allows us all to get the maximum benefit of the time available.
why you should sign up for mentoring sessions
With mentoring, we will be able to really dive deep into your business and goals. We can work at your pace and you have my full attention.
Bounce your ideas and brainstorm with someone who has creative business experience. There's nothing I love more than helping people turn their ideas into reality.
save time & money
Mentoring sessions are meant to get you on the fast track. I've spent hours and hours researching and studying. Let me pass along some wisdom to help you avoid some of the pitfalls.
Christy helped me find resources to order business cards, packaging & shipping materials, design a monogram,& set up an Etsy shop. Eventually, she helped me design a website with Shopify that we used for 8 years.
Christy helped me find a few local opportunities where I was able to display my jewelry and sell it.
Christy was always available to "nicely" push me outside of my comfort zone to get to my goal of making extra money.
Business Mentoring FAQ
I specialize in helping small, creative businesses. If you are looking to start a business or want to level up an established one, you could benefit from some 1:1 mentoring sessions.
Because this mentoring is 1:1, we will be able to tailor our sessions to precisely what you need. If you don't even know what you need, that is one of the topics we will discuss! One of my strengths is strategic planning. I am able to take what you've been thinking about and make it an actionable plan.
This really depends on what you'd like to accomplish. If you're looking for some direction and a kickstart, I'd suggest 3-5. If you are interested in more consistency to stay on track, once or twice a month is usually enough.
You have the option! If you are local to Lincoln, I'd love to have you visit my office in person. Otherwise, we've all become very accustomed to virtual meetings so I'm offering those as well.
