Tell us about yourself
I went from corporate life to living in Bali, running a successful retreat company and community. Ten years ago, I went on my first retreat, and it was that 'aha' moment that shifted the rest of my life. I realized, like most, I was living by the standards of my parents, society, media, etc. After my first retreat, I realized I truly create my own reality and can design the life of my dreams. Years later, I started Revamp Retreats so I could support others on this same path. Each day I am motivated to make an impact on this world. It starts at home in my own life, with my family, and from there, it moves to my business and to building a community that will change the culture of the world.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Going all in from the start -- 15 retreats in year 1, six-figure profit, and TONS of impact on both the guests and communities around the world.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Entrepreneurship is a rollercoaster journey. One of the hardest things has been finding life balance as a new mama while also growing something I deeply care about.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Go all in -- go bigger than you imagine.
- Get a coach/support.
- Don't be afraid to fail, pivot, or change course -- it's all part of the journey.
