Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is for female entrepreneurs who are wanting to learn the best strategy & tools to objectively examine into their own business while addressing the holistic needs they have as women in business.

I haven't launched my business, can I still attend?

Absolutely and this is so encouraged! What you learn on this retreat will help ensure you're using the most effective strategies, tools and approach for your business and will give you the motivation, inspiration and accountability you need to get it launched.

Why do I have to apply to attend?

Babes Who Business Retreat has limited spots available! It's an intimate retreat so that you can have the most hands-on and personalized coaching possible. We want to make sure we're accepting women who are motivated and ready to learn and who we feel we can really help rise.

Do I have to live in Niagara to attend?

Nope! We welcome all women from any city, any province and International attendees as well. Spend Sunday evening checking out beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake or take a peak at Niagara Falls as part of your weekend getaway.

I am not active on social media, can I still apply?

Absolutely! However, you do need to have a desire and willingness to become active. Social media has been crucial in the success of all our brands! Don't worry - we'll teach you all the strategy & tools and we'll help you work through fears of really being seen. 

I have dietary concerns

No problem! Let us know your restrictions on your application form and we'll see if our chefs can accommodate.

Should I come alone or bring a friend?

This retreat is learning and action-based focused so you'll be busy working towards your goals and dreams! If you have a bestie with a similar mission, joining with a friend is A-ok.

Is it really worth the cost?

YES, YES and YES! Shawna, Savanna and Megan all firmly attribute their success to the skills they've learned on retreats, business mastery events and programs they've invested in. They're now ready to teach this goldmine of combined knowledge to you.

I've had my business for a few years, can I still benefit from this retreat?

Absolutely! Taking time to step out of your usual routine, methods and strategies is paramount to personal and business growth. It's so easy to get caught up in our own little bubbles that we often forget to take a step out of it to see what's happening in other areas of business. Even if you feel you have a solid base, we guarantee that the takeaways from this retreat will breathe fresh new life into your business and, most importantly, your own holistic wellness journey.

I'm nervous about sharing where I'm at in my business and receiving feedback and constructive criticism for my business.

Yes! 100% normal and we've all been there. What we've learned is that working with your fears and stepping outside your comfort zone is actually what makes one grow and opens the doors to success. Putting yourself out there and getting comfortable with feedback and constructive criticism are hugely valuable skills to have in entrepreneurship. And like Shawna teaches all her clients, embrace the fear and do it anyways!
