Small Business Ownership is a Journey. It can be full of magic, beautiful experiences, travel, FREEDOM, connections, and endless possibilities.

If you’re an Entrepreneur or Small Business Owner, and you want MORE out of life, then this experience was designed exclusively for YOU.

Imagine sitting by this pool ➡️➡️➡️, overlooking the incredible mountains of Le Marche, in the medieval village of Petritoli.

Maybe you’re sipping a cappuccino or a glass of locally-made wine. In this moment, you realize that your business journey can be different and that you get to create the lifestyle that you deserve, and the business that you LOVE.

Small Business Ownership is a Journey. It can be full of magic, beautiful experiences, travel, FREEDOM, connections, and endless possibilities.

If you’re an Entrepreneur or Small Business Owner, and you want MORE out of life, then this experience was designed exclusively for YOU.

Imagine sitting by this pool ⬇️⬇️⬇️, overlooking the incredible mountains of Le Marche, in the medieval village of Petritoli.

Maybe you’re sipping a cappuccino or a glass of locally-made wine. In this moment, you realize that your business journey can be different and that you get to create the lifestyle that you deserve, and the business that you LOVE.

The Freedom to travel, The Autonomy to make your own decisions, & The Ability to create something different awaits you.

Around 6 months ago, I came across an article online about an entire medieval Italian village that you could rent. I wasn't looking for this village, but this village found me. I was recovering from my second throat surgery in two years, and I needed a spark to help recapture my creative energy and excitement.

At first, the thought of renting an entire Medieval, Italian village scared the absolute hell out of me...

Hosting our first international summit, and renting an entire village?

Who the hell am I to do something like this? Impostor Syndrome hit me like a ton of bricks.

Impostor Syndrome hit me like a ton of bricks.

I immediately told Jennifer that we should consider visiting, meeting the hostess, and hosting our first international summit there. We booked a visit 6 months in advance to see if this would be the right for our vision.

This was step 1 of working through Self Doubt, Fear, Impostor Syndrome, and the “this is a great idea but it’s probably better for someone else who knows what they’re doing,” Mentality. Through the power of imperfect action, we started to put one foot in front of the other.

These are the things that show up in our entrepreneurial journeys that hold us back, that limit us, that keep us playing small, despite our successes and abilities.

The Doubt Yourself Do It Anyway Summit is geared towards all entrepreneurs who are too often held back by self-limiting beliefs.

As therapists, small business owners, and entrepreneurs, we don’t always practice what we preach.

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 summit.)

We didn't want to host a summit in a tourist trap, or big city, as we want to ensure you are able to immerse yourselves in the local culture, have beautiful green spaces to decompress in, and have the experience of a lifetime. We love to travel like locals, and let me tell you, the area of Le Marche, and the village of Petritoli, are like stepping into a movie set.

I think that the best places to travel to are the hardest to find. I 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.


We are going to have the entire medieval Italian village to ourselves, living amongst the people, eating delicious food, and truly experiencing the magic that Italy has to offer.

You'll meet the restaurant owners, small business owners, have incredible experiences, and again, the breathtaking views are literally everywhere you look.

This is a quirky, historic, medieval town. We want to make sure that you know that this will not be like staying at a traditional hotel. There is an old-world charm, which is a part of the beauty of this experience.

We are limiting the attendance to 100 total guests.

You can be a mental health entrepreneur, a small business owner, or someone who wants to travel and grow. We don't care, as long as you want to have this incredible life-changing experience.

You’ll be with other like-minded, INCREDIBLY talented human beings in an “Incubator” in a historic, medieval, Italian village.

How can it possibly get any better than that?

Oh… did I 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).


During this experience, we’re going to combine work and play with a little bit of history. Here's what's included…

  • We are going to eat incredible local Italian food together. You'll only be responsible for 2 dinners on your own + drinks during cocktail hours.
    • “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 a beautiful, medieval Italian village in The Majestic Palazzo, and the beautiful boutique hotels, living like locals. And, we'll have exclusive usage of the town squares, the gardens, and more.
  • We are going to have a welcome party with delicious food and wine, as well as Local Welcome Gift Bags with locally-made products.
  • We are going to have 3 group experiences to explore and enjoy the Italian lifestyle and culture.
    • Potential Excursions Include... Wine tasting, E-Bike Tour, Craft Beer Tasting, Cooking Class at Palazzo, Hiking Sibillini National Park, Farm and Cheese Tasting, Pottery Class, Pizza Challenge, etc.
  • 13 NBCC-approved Credit Hours (1 Credit Hour for each session attended)
  • We’ll be working on your dreams, goals, aspirations, and ideas. I’ll be providing business coaching alongside several other industry experts.
    • Want to finally write that book? Let’s work on the mental blocks to help you get started.
    • 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 amazing leaders in the mental health and entrepreneurship community during group and breakout settings. Explore your passions and pitch your ideas. 
    • A 3-month follow-up group coaching call so that you can maintain momentum and accountability
  • Surrounded by KICK ASS, Brave Therapists and Entrepreneurs
