Enjoy 5 Days & 6 Nights in Beautiful Portugal


October 2, 2023 - October 7, 2023










“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” 

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

We believe that travel is one of the most important things that you can do during your lifetime. Not only do you push yourself out of your comfort zone but you also grow as a human being.

Travel tests you. It’s not always pretty. But the activities you do, the people you meet, the pictures you take, the food you eat, and the landscapes you walk, create memories that last forever.

As therapists, small business owners, and entrepreneurs, marketing our ideas doesn't always come naturally.

We have all of these great ideas but most of them only reside within our minds, never to be seen by the world.

Our own fears and insecurities convince us that we should play it small, that we should shrink back inside of ourselves, and that we will inevitably FAIL.

Call it impostor syndrome. Call it insecurity. Call it self-doubt…

Whatever you call it, we are going to work through it together and OBLITERATE it so that it no longer paralyzes you from putting your GREATNESS into the world.

Doubt Yourself But DO IT ANYWAY!

(That is the motto of this retreat.)
You’ll be with other like-minded, INCREDIBLY talented human beings in an “Incubator” in the most historic cities in Portugal.

How can it possibly get any better than that?

Oh… did we mention you will get to write most of this off on your taxes? That’s a nice added bonus as well. (Obviously, talk with your accountant about what percentage is deductible).


What is the Power of the Group Experience?

Normalizes fears, failures, & mistakes, allowing us to acknowledge that it’s OK to second guess ourselves

Allows us to build each other up and turbocharge our creative processes

Being around excited, creative, & motivated people pushes us to be better than we were before

They allow for accountability, life-long relationships, belly laughs, and storytelling. These are the things that make you think back and smile.

Maybe you’ll see me “dancing” in the corner silently while the music’s playing. Odds are slim… but not impossible.

During this experience, we’re going to combine work and play with a little bit of history

  • We are going to eat incredible Portugese food together and have 3 all-inclusive, catered meals each day.
    • “We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink.” – Epicurus 
  • We are going to stay in Naturasolta Quinta de São Pedro, only 15 minutes from Lisbon (the Capital of Portugal).
  • We are going to have group experiences in Portugal.
    • Examples include a Day Trip to Sintra, an enchanting Portuguese town located in the hills of the Sierra de Sintra, a tour of the capital of Portugal, Lidbson, wine tasting, and more!
  • We’ll be working on marketing strategies and workshops to support your dreams, goals, aspirations, and ideas. We’ll be providing business coaching alongside several other industry experts. This is a workshop style retreat so you can take the strategy that is developed on day 1 and put it into action!

  • Too fearful to start that coaching program because no one would ever buy it? Screw that noise. We’ll help you work through that impostor syndrome.

    • Wondering how you can write copy that attracts more of your ideal clients and actually represents your brand? Done and Done!
    • Simply want to fine-tune things in your business and just be a part of the process and collective energy… You Do You, Boo!
    • You’ll have access to us in group and breakout settings, as well as individually.
  • 8 NBCC approved CEs
  • A 3-month and 6-month follow-up group coaching call so that you can maintain momentum and accountability
  • Surrounded by KICK ASS, Brave Therapists and Entrepreneurs

As your retreat hosts, Jennifer and I believe that travel helps us take more risks in life. It gives us permission to move, to experience the culture, to eat new food, and to make new friends and connections. We owe almost everything we have to travel experiences. When we start to think bigger, we can start becoming more creative in our businesses, our personal lives, and in everything we do.

You don’t grow when you’re comfortable.


“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts; it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain
