Invest In YOU

Adventure Retreat Leading is an amazing opportunity and interest in becoming a Adventure Retreat Leader is growing, a lot!

Many of us are finding that leading adventures and retreats is not only a profitable part of our businesses but also an opportunity to enjoy more of what we love through our work.

So invest in YOU! Spend at least 10% of your Adventure Retreat Leading income on yourself:
  • Get some training in an area you'd like to discuss with your participants. What do you want to know more about that you'd love to share on your retreat?
  • Get some training in an activity you'd like your participants to experience. Even if you're working with an outfitter to provide the activity, it's a great idea to feel at ease in the activity yourself.
  • Take a photography class so you can better record your adventures and share your experiences in your marketing material.
  • Learn how to lead retreats and adventures better. See our training offering.
  • Take yourself on a planning adventure. Go somewhere you've always wanted to visit in order to better understand the place and what your participants will experience.
  • Learn about the wildlife, the plant life, the geography and the climate of the area in which you plan to take your participants.

Topic: Using Metaphors to Design Your Retreat Themes
Do you have a theme for your getaway or do you simply have a topic? Do you know the difference? How can you be clearer about that which you are offering using a retreat theme? And just what is a theme? What are the 3 elements that comprise a retreat them? How do you express them? Do your participants understand what it is you are offering when you advertise your Retreat or Outing or Getaway or Adventure?

Join Adventure Coach Deb Martin in a one-hour brainstorming session designed to help you better understand what your retreat theme is and how you can express it through metaphors. Please bring your questions and your ideas as they related to what “Using Metaphors to Design Your Retreat Themes” means to you. Deb will share a few examples and then we’re ready to brainstorm about your Retreat Theme.
