NEW RULE; the Big Idea/ Strategy to help with this new world we live in:

Creating Transformational Destination Retreats in Your Business is a Great Way to Add More Income to Your Bottom Line.

Why it’s important; benefits both personally and professionally:

People want to travel in a way that is deeply experiential and life-changing. They  want to travel, have fun and learn at the same time.

How to accomplish the above:

I encourage coaches, authors, facilitators – entrepreneurs of all kinds to incorporate transformational destination retreats into their business models because they are extremely lucrative and clients are ready to travel and experience something amazing.  Follow a step by step process and be sure to have all your legal papers in place.

What do you do to stay motivated or the secret for your motivation:

Love what you do.

Golden Nuggets:

The Destination of the Retreat should correlate with the Theme of the Retreat

Be open to learning when you travel – People are people no matter where you go.  The Food is different; the culture is different, but think is there something in my belief system that could change – can I learn something from this culture.

Sheri has traveled extensively, which adds to her experience:

  • Bhutan
  • Peru
  • Mexico
  • Costa Rica
  • Honduras
  • Guatemala
  • Hawaii
  • Sacred Britain
  • Greece
  • Israel
  • Jordan
  • Egypt
  • Italy
  • France
  • Tahiti
  • Bora Bora
  • Morocco
  • Yugoslavia
  • Crete

Beanie Baby Toeclog is the Mascot – a cute little Lemur – that Sheri carries in her backpack when she travels.  This most likely stimulates conversation with the locals.

Sheri is also owner of Journeys of the Spirit – Boutique Travel Agency:

  • custom individual travel
  • group retreat travel

Sheri began doing retreats when she started working for Don Miguel Ruiz – famous author of The Four Agreements.  She was his Business Manager for years and learned everything there is to know about planning and hosting retreats.

Planning a Retreat is like putting together a puzzle.

The Retreat should be Transformational and never be just a workshop in a pretty place


  • Get clarity on what you want to teach – what are the benefits someone attending your retreat will walk away with. What is your Promise?
  • Creating some really good engaging text around what the context is -great trip title, great description – will immediately qualify your client. You want your retreat to solve a problem.

The aspects in creating a retreat:

  • The Initial stage including Engaging text, Trip page, etc. with Pictures
  • Marketing the retreat, Filling the retreat and Monetizing afterwards
  • Legalities

The outcome of taking Sheri’s course is the confidence and know how to plan, organize and lead the retreat.

One of the side benefits of creating a retreat through your business is that you can write the trip off as a true business expense.   The retreat will be life changing and profound for your clients but it can also be life changing for you.
