YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IF YOU WANT TO PLAN A live event – BUT YOU JUST DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START.

The to-do list you’ve mapped out is overwhelming and you’re pretty sure it doesn’t even include half of the things it should (it probably doesn’t). You’re terrified of a half empty gathering, nervous that the people who DO come aren’t going to love it, and you are worried about losing money or credibility.

But you just can’t shake the feeling – you KNOW that holding live events is something you’re meant to do. Your message is something that people are craving. Let’s be honest - the work you are doing is changing the damn world. You really believe in the magic that happens when people come together #inreallife (me too!) and you know you want your business to be a part of it.

Hi, I’m Lizzy, and I help heart-centered, socially conscious change makers plan intimate retreats & gatherings that are perfectly scaled for your unique business. Whether you want to spend a weekend retreating at a campground under the stars or a morning gathered for yoga and art making in a local park, I want to help you pull your event together with ease, alignment, and deep impact.

 

Together, we will map out your one-of-a-kind, step-by-step Retreat Roadmap:

  • Create a comprehensive plan of action that will serve as a retreat roadmap you can use over and over. Because once you do one retreat, you will be hooked!

  • Dive deep to uncover the heart, soul, and intellect of your event, outlining your clear vision and purpose. A clearly defined vision and purpose will drive all of the decisions you make while planning and executing your retreat - it is essential, and we will work together to make sure you have a strong foundation.

  • Outline your ideal budget, including how to estimate costs, preparing for possible unforeseen expenses, determining what to charge, outreach to sponsors, and how much profit you can expect to make.

  • Scout out & secure a location, venue, and vendors that align with your group numbers, ideal budget, and overall vision.

  • Marketing strategies that work. Marketing live events is completely different than anything else. You are going to learn how to actually get people to buy tickets and show up!

  • Consult and strategize around anything that comes up for you during the planning process. There will be hiccups but you will feel confident to handle them because you will have my help at your fingertips - we can work through them together!


I couldn't have done it without her!

"Before working with Lizzy, I was terrified of planning a retreat. But her confidence in how simple and fun it would be was reassuring and comforting, so I decided to take the leap. She made the process so manageable and simple, organizing the details and breaking down the phases of planning into bite-sized manageable chunks that really are easy to implement. And Lizzy didn't just help me plan my retreat, she helped me to get focused and clear on other avenues of my business as a whole. The value and support she provided through this ongoing process was way more than I expected. I couldn't have done it without her!"

"Lizzy helped me get clear about the primary fear that was holding me back from taking action on planning my first local workshop. I've been teaching online and knew it was time to become visible in person, but I felt overwhelmed about getting started. Lizzy showed me a pathway to quickly get into action by sharing how I could start with one very simple workshop and make the most out of it with a few key strategies I never would have come up with on my own. I'll be turning to Lizzy for support as this side of my business grows!"

SHE'S THE MASTER!

"When I walked into the Mindful Mama retreat that Lizzy worked on, I was blown away by the organization! All of the elements were perfect - from the food to the bags, to all the little touches that made it great. With Lizzy's work, the day flowed seemingly effortlessly. It was a joy and a pleasure to be a presenter there and I made lasting connections with clients. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to ask Lizzy for help with an event. She's the master!”

I feel like I can hear your heart speaking to me through the screen. You KNOW that your message has the power to make an impact, and you KNOW deep in your gut that gathering people together for intimate in-person retreats, workshops, or circles is integral to your work.

I know this about you, because this is me too! I've spent the last 20 years bringing people together for both intimate and super large scale community experiences (most recently as (Un)Scripted Retreats - but the first women's weekend I planned was in 1997!); planning these kinds of gatherings and helping others do the same is the most rewarding work of my life.

As your Mentor, I will be your biggest cheerleader, guiding you through the process of creating your one-of-a-kind retreat roadmap, and providing insight, ideas, and must-have strategies for creating a meaningful, profitable, intimate event that resonates with your audience, elevates your business, and makes you proud of your impact. I will work with you (and your team) so that you feel confident and supported in tackling the vision, logistics and planning of your event. (Cue dance party because your business is about to explode!)

It is time for you to offer your first retreat. I am excited to guide, support, and encourage you every step of the way. I will learn about what you are doing, why you are doing it, and support you in gaining the confidence to create a live event that aligns with your deepest desires and values for your business and your life. This is going to get SO GOOD. My heart is bursting with excitement to be with you on this journey (seriously, I wish I could hug you through the screen).
