Wild Comfort: The Solace of Nature by Kathleen Dean Moore

Wild Comfort: The Solace of Nature by Kathleen Dean Moore is a thoughtful expression of what we all know about healing and answers found in Nature.

You'll be nodding your head and expressing your agreement throughout this read. It's not so much that Wild Comfort will teach you what you already know. It's that Wild Comfort will give you the words to express it and the joy in knowing others out there feel the same.

Enjoy!

Who Are Your Adventure and Retreat Centers of Influence

Centers of Influence are not necessarily your Adventure Retreat Collaborators like outfitters, venues, service providers, etc. But they can be.

Centers of Influence are not necessarily others in your industry (sometimes called competitors but I don't much believe in the old notion of competition). But they can be.

Centers of Influence are those people who like and admire what you do AND have a strong and large circle of connections. They want to share what you do with others and the have plenty of "others" with whom to share.


Now don't necessarily expect your Centers of Influence to want to join you on your adventures and retreats. They may not ever be your customers. Often their goal is not to join you or work with you. Many Centers of Influence assemble a large group of interesting friends doing very different things as a way to enjoy a variety people without every buying their offering, artwork, food, clothing, etc. But I promise, they will talk about you, connect you with others in ways you cannot do yourself and promote your business.

Strengthen your relationships with your Centers of Influence. Become part of their assembly of interesting, quirky, dynamic, and through-provoking friends.

Escape


Patt and I have been following the tiny house movement pretty closely. And Escape we think has gone the extra mile to combine simplicity and luxury, while paying close attention to the environment.

While the Escape is a movable building, it really is meant to stay in one place. Think recreation and a retreat site.
