WHAT ARE WIT + WISDOM RETREATS ALL ABOUT?

Imagine joining a small group of like-minded women in a gorgeous mountain home for three days of hands-on business education.

Imagine staying in your pajamas all day long while you work on your business with the support of the group and your hosts, Erin Shebish and Kirsten Thompson.

Imagine no more! Wit + Wisdom Retreats are small-group, hands-on, actionable and FUN events designed for hyper-focused education for small business owners.

ALL-INCLUSIVE = NO STRESS

The cost of the retreat covers everything from the moment you arrive so you don't have to worry about anything: cozy accommodations, delicious meals, plenty of snacks + wine, entertainment, and of course, education.

NEW FOR FALL 2018: MASTERMIND OPTION

We've created an opportunity to be part of a three-month mastermind that begins at the end of the retreat for on-going support and growth in your business.


QUICK NAVIGATIOn


Your Content Masterclass was the perfect size for hands on learning and growth! The intimate size class made it easy for everybody to fully learn and get all questions answered. It was also really nice to be in a small setting where all the attendees could really get to know one another and help each other out with any business related questions. The entire trip was nothing, but amazing and I highly recommend it! Kirsten and Erin really know their stuff and are wonderful teachers!

*Due to the small-group nature of the event, all applicants will be vetted through a video interview and series of questions. Our goal is to be sure the mix of personalities will work well together and everyone has similar goals and mindset for the event. We do not discriminate against anyone, however, this event is for women only.

GOOD TO KNOW: You will be sharing a room, and possibly sharing a bed, which makes this retreat great for friends! There are two rooms with twin beds, 1 queen bedroom, and 1 king bedroom. Your preference will be noted on your application and will be first come, first serve. If you wish to have a room all to yourself, you will be required to register for two spots. No discounts will be given.

Kirsten and Erin have a gift for teaching and their passion about what they teach comes through. They are extremely knowledgable and can break down complex ideas into bite-size, easy to understand language. These gals know their stuff, they are professional, down-to-earth and patient. I’m looking forward to the next Wit + Wisdom retreat!
