Pockets you didn't know you'd need. Stays clean... well at least not smelly.... for days and days. And washes and dries in a moment.

Deb and Patt love teaching this class and their energy is infectious. You'll get some very personal one-on-one help as you move toward becoming an Adventure Retreat Leader.

Into The Wild

Here's another book in our Great Adventure Summer Reading series. Patt recommends Into the Wild by John Krakauer for your end-of-summer reading.

Krakauer share with us the story of young Christopher McCandless, who leaves his comfortable home life for Alaska where he is later found dead in an abandoned bus by a moose hunter. His diary and letters tell the story.

Krakauer suggests some answers or insights "by exploring the pull the outdoors, seductive yet often dangerous, has had on his own life."

Your Adventure Retreat Blog or Newsletter

Does your Adventure Retreat Business have a blog or newsletter? These are two of the best ways to stay in front of your participants.

We like blogging but an email newsletter can also be effective. The advantage of a blog is that it gives your participants and those interested in your adventures the opportunity to interact with you.

Steps:
  1. Create your Blog or Newsletter online format.
  2. Establish a way for your readers to receive your blog posts or your newsletters by subscribing.
  3. Invite your readers to subscribe to your blog posts or newsletter. And invite them again. And invite them one more time. People want to participate, they really do. Sometimes they just need to be invited more than once. We're all in information overload and we need to understand the value to us first.
  4. Provide valuable content that your readers can really use. Give them something to think about. Ask questions to get interaction. 
  5. Share often. We've all subscribed to something we found valuable only to discover the creator has gotten bored and dropped the ball. Expect your readers to be interested only to the level that you are communicating with them and inspired about offering good value.
