Explore National Parks in the U. S.

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore
Here's a website I go to often when I'm looking for inspiration for my next Adventure Retreat; The U. S. National Park Service.

It's not even necessary to create an offering in a National Park (although these parks are so inspiring they can do much of your work for you). Just land on the page and go exploring. Something you see on this site will inspire a location and a theme. I promise.

And if you're interested in learning about the rules for offering an Adventure Retreat in a U. S. National Park, consider signing up for Deb and Patt's Live Teleclass Series to Leading Adventure Retreats in Nature and ask the question about National Parks when we discuss locations for your offerings. We are happy to elaborate.

See you in the Park!

Get Your Personal Adventure Retreat Needs Met

It's true. We are Adventure Retreat Leaders because we personally love being on adventure and in retreat. And we often assume we will get our fix by leading adventures and retreats.Yet, it's not the same.

Want to be an outstanding Adventure Retreat Leader? Then go on another leader's offering. Or go on your own private outing.

How often? It's up to you. But we suggest at least twice a year. Better yet, once each season is lovely.

And by the way, Patt and I offer a guide to your next Adventure Retreat called The Rest of Your Life. It's a good start to getting your Adventure Retreat needs met. Enjoy!

David Whyte Tours

Do you know David Whyte? He's one of my favorite poets and authors. You can learn more about David at his website, DavidWhyte.com

And in the spirit of Adventure, I want to tell you today about his walking tours.

David has two tours this year, one last July in the West of Ireland and one coming up the end of August in the Hills of Tuscany.

He's been doing these tours for awhile. If you can't make the last-minute trip this year, put David on your radar and prepare for next year. In preparation, here's one of my favorite books by David Whyte.
 
Crossing the Unknown Sea: Work as a Pilgrimage of Identity

Will you be anywhere near Utah in early November? Here's an Adventure Gear Expo to check out.

The next best thing to being on adventure is checking out gear and talking adventure with like-minded folks.

Raise Your Fees

What!? But you say, "I just got started. I need to beta test and develop my business through attracting participants with my very reasonable prices!"

Well if you want to keep your Adventure and Retreat offerings full for the long run, consider raising your rates now.

Most of us, when we start our business, tend to offer a lot of value to our participants while undercharging for our services because we want to build our business. But what we are often doing is training our participants and customers to expect a lot of value for little money. When you finally get tired of working so very hard for so very little money, it's hard to raise your rates because you've developed a certain kind of client who expects you to continue to deliver a lot for low prices.

Raise your fees now. Attract the kind of participant who is willing to pay for value. Deliver all you promised and more. Enjoy being a quality Adventure and Retreat Leader and appreciate the good income you make.
