Spend More Time

Where do you want to spend more of your time? At the beach? In a garden? On a horse? On the water? With children? In a relationship? In the kitchen? ... Well, you get the idea.

Sit down. Make a list of where YOU would like to spend more time. These are your next Adventure and Retreat environments and themes and topics. Slip more than one into a single adventure if you want.

We spend way too much time trying to think about what others will want; that is, what will sell. What will sell best is creating an outing around what YOU want. Do what you want, invite others, and let's go. I'm with you!

Take A Break

You deserve it because you have earned it, Or maybe you haven't. It does not matter. We don't always have to "earn" those things we find delicious, rewarding and healing.

This is the message Patt and I give to our retreat participants. It's not about what you've earned, it's about who you are. That is, gift yourself a break for no reason at all. Be more of who you are, not what you do. The doing will happen naturally when you find more of yourself by taking a break.

Now off with you. Go wiggle your toes, hands body, head in something delicious.

One of Patt's favorite "break" sites is Calm. I've come to love it too.


Our Live Adventure Retreat Leader Teleclass Series begins February 3. Will you join us?

May I Call You?

Such an easy question. And it has such big impact on building your Adventure Retreat business. Yet we are often reluctant to ask. So ask this question until it becomes automatic and easy.

Unless you've specifically made an appointment, most of your networking will be in public places and events. Often, for numerous reasons, the person you are talking with does not have the time to listen to all you have to say about your offerings. Or the environment in which you are trying to carry on the conversation is distracting and noisy.

Getting a phone number and permission to call opens up all kinds of time to generate interest. Your first call may be nothing more than setting a time for a second phone call or an in-person meeting. That's okay.

Just follow through and you'll create an environment that is much more conducive to being heard fully. You'll engage more people. You'll fill  more outings.

The Adventure Retreat Leader teleclass training begins February 3. Interested? May we call you? Simply zip me an email to deb@adventureretreatleader.com with your interest and phone number and either Patt or I will follow up. Thanks!

Fabulous Frannie

Essential oils are often just the thing to help your participants calm and breathe into the reflection activities you are offering. Patt loves Fabulous Frannie for herself and her retreat participants.

Patt says....
"Fabulous Frannie's essential oils are fragrant, therapeutic and affordable. I particularly like the 6-bottle gift set that includes peppermint, lavender, sweet orange, rosemary, eucalyptus, and tea tree; very aromatic. All packages come with detailed tips on how to best use the oils as well as what benefits will be gained from each."


The Adventure Retreat Leader teleclass training begins February 3.

The free monthly Adventure Retreat Leader Community Calls begin January 13.
