You’ve worked for your success. But, what got you ‘here’ will not get you ‘there.’ At the “Scaling your Mindset Leadership Summit,” you get to shed the baggage that’s been weighing you down, summit the next peak you’ve been after and stand in the confidence of being an authentic leader, experiencing a truly transformed life.
January 26 – 31, 2023
About The Retreat
Do you remember the feeling you had as you stepped into your role as a leader?
Saying yes to that purpose was a risk, a leap, and an investment in your future. But look at yourself now.
You’re standing at the peak, you’ve worked hard for your success and now you’re probably wondering, “what’s next?”
Being your business’s most important asset requires you to invest in yourself.
And now, to go higher, you have to dig deeper. Reconnect to your purpose, your authenticity, and the powerful leader within.
The Scaling Your Mindset to Scale Your Business Leadership Summit is more than a business retreat.
It is a holistic and transformative experience designed with a sole purpose: granting you time and space to invest in yourself, allowing you to reconnect with the powerful, authentic leader you are born to be. We will use self-discovery and visioning as tools for business growth – digging deep to scale higher.
Are you ready to scale the summit?
The Scaling Your Mindset to Scale Your Business Leadership Summit is more than a business retreat. It is a holistic and transformative experience designed with a sole purpose: granting you time and space to invest in yourself, allowing you to reconnect with the powerful, authentic leader you are born to be. The coaches will use self-discovery and visioning as tools for business growth – digging deep to scale higher.
You are being called to join a cohort of like-minded business leaders and spend five days in the jungle of Costa Rica – disconnecting from your ‘normal’ to rediscover your “why” and access true freedom.
Will you allow yourself to access your most authentic self, and lead from that place?
Arrive at Imiloa via a chartered flight landing in the heart of the jungle. Discover the barefoot luxury of your accommodations and settle in with chef-prepared snacks and a dinner with your new cohort. Begin the journey by taking stock of all that has brought you to this summit, who is standing here with you, and set intentions for the week ahead. End the night by mingling fireside together or retire to your cozy bed in the jungle.
Begin to learn the tools of transformation with a facilitator-led yoga session each morning. Stretch, breathe, and meditate as you shed the armor of daily life. You will enter the journey to authentic leadership by gaining full awareness of yourself: the habits, patterns, and self-created obstacles that impede your progress, and how to accept and work through them. Connect with the group, with nature, and with yourself in an indigenous Costa Rican cacao ceremony at sunset.
Using the awareness awakened on Day Two, on Day Three you will learn how to break free from frustrating, repetitive, and burdening patterns. In business, relationships, and daily life, re-envision a version of yourself that is powerful, connected, and authentic. Then, commit wholeheartedly to that self.
Visualize your future, empowered by the transformative work of the past several days. Erase boundaries constructed between business and authentic selves, and learn to bring your whole self to your work: in vision, purpose, path, and relationships. Speak with strength, clarity, and honesty as you chart a path to your vision, and a plan for the coming year. You will leave this day with clarity around your own vision of what it is you truly “want to do”in your life and business.
You’ll spend this final full day completely attuned as your authentic self, discovering your untethered inner strength in your choice of yoga sessions, surfing excursions, massages or body treatments, or simply unstructured personal time to explore and reflect poolside on the exquisite retreat grounds. In the evening, our whole group will journey to a nearby beach town for dinner. As the sun sets, connect with your newfound community and celebrate the incredible journey made in the course of just one week.
GRATITUDE & NEW BEGINNING
This part of your journey to authentic leadership ends by honoring the connections you’ve made and the commitments you’ve created. Stand at your personal summit as the authentic leader you are born to be, and look across to see those standing with you. Recognize the hard work and life-changing growth of each and every leader present, and commit to yourself and each other to embark on a new beginning as these effective and fully-conscious leaders upon returning home.
What You Will Gain
Clarity of Purpose
Shed the patterns that block you and achieve powerful clarity of your unique purpose and the steps to return to that purpose. Lay claim to your authentic vision and voice. Communicate from this place: calm, centered, and powerfully aligned with the future you truly desire and deserve.
Freedom from Expectations
Unplug yourself from the constant barrage of emails, texts, tasks, and expectations. Reconnect to a rhythm long forgotten: breathe, eat, swim, stretch, and play free from inhibitions. Grant yourself the space and time to shed the masks worn at work and in life, and reveal yourself in a space specifically held for you.
We’ll use yoga, breathwork, chef-prepared vegan cuisine, bodywork and play to lay the foundation for a week of growth and discovery. With these in place, you will be prepared for deep, transformative coaching sessions alongside a support system of peers designed to unlock barriers professionally, psychologically, and emotionally. Discover a holistic vision of success and stand tall as a lithe, authentic warrior of a leader.
A Supportive Community
Be enveloped in a fully supportive, inspiring community where you’re completely seen and cared for. Connect on a deeper level with other leaders who have experienced the same pains and yearn for the same fulfillment as you. Step into the oasis and uncover the true meaning of co-elevation alongside the abundance of nature.
The best and most successful leaders are not those who mold themselves into the leaders they think they should be, but the ones know themselves deeply and use their authentic strengths every day.

Attending the Scale Your Mindset to Scale Your Business summit resulted in a deeper transformation than I ever could have imagined. I am now in a position to show up as a better leader; not only for my business, but in my life overall. I am now seeing the return on my investment, in terms of both time and money.
When I returned a friend asked me how much the retreat cost. I couldn’t even remember. I told her the investment was irrelevant compared to what I gained from this transformative experience.
Personal growth builds business growth. The format guided us to look within, to examine our actions, to understand how they are influenced by the past and to be conscious of them going forward.
I’m still experiencing the benefits of the deep work I was able to do. By going deep in the coaching sessions and within myself, I am able to be more conscious of why I do the work that I do in the first place. Since returning, I’ve experienced the largest success in my business career so far.
