Women’s Strategic Planning Retreat


Join a small group of women entrepreneurs in getting real together and getting clear on crafting your business to fit your life. Make space for yourself to envision and map out the year ahead (and beyond). Use your planning muscles to actualize what you envision.

The Plan

An initial gathering feast and a day and a half retreat designed to support you in clarifying, articulating, and mapping out where you are headed with your work and how you intend to get there. Doing this as a small team of women allows us to explore together, learn from one another’s unique perspectives, and gain valuable insight on our business planning.

The initial gathering feast and the retreat will be facilitated by Leigh Tillman. Leigh will guide you through a collaborative process to shape the unfolding of your business and thoughtfully integrate it with your life. To learn more about Leigh click here.

The Group

  • Women entrepreneurs and small business owners of noncompetitive businesses
  • Women who are in it – i.e. your business is your primary form (or one of your primary forms) of work and source of income
  • Women who want to do this together – to have a team to support and be supported by in your work

Come Away With

  • A compass setting that honors your life and your business – that honors you
  • Clarity on where you want to go and how you want to get there
  • A roadmap of what you are doing – with who and by when
  • Enhanced understanding of an array of planning techniques and how to cater them to your planning intentions
  • A team to engage with in the year ahead to support the unfolding of the course you’ve set
  • Gratitude toward yourself for making this time for you and your business
