How is a SOWBO Retreat Different?

We provide easy conversation starters at each event in order to remove the awkwardness among strangers. Because honestly. Every woman who attends our events has a story worth telling.

Our conversations are intentional.

That's why we provide an opportunity for it at each event! You deserve time away from the household duties and taking care of others. Our events are opportunities for you to take workations, write the expense of the trip off, work ON the business, but—just as important—to allow yourself time to dream, have fun, relax, smile until it hurts, dress up in your favorite outfit, and make everlasting memories with wonderful people.

We believe in having fun, making memories, and taking time to rejuvenate.

We hone in on the power of intimate collaboration among like-minded women. This isn’t a conference or girlfriend’s getaway. It’s a life-changing experience that will level up your business.

Our retreats are hyper-focused and intentional. 

It was created out of a need for authentic community. You’ll quickly learn that the heart of SOWBO is all about serving YOU… not us. We believe in you. This isn’t some selfish endeavor—this is about empowering real women to overcome the hardest obstacles, passionately pursue deep callings, make real change in the world, live a life of fulfillment, and do so together.

SOWBO was created by women business owners just like you.

Our 4-day event is a true business retreat. You will leave with an action plan for your own business plus a community of women who are doing the journey alongside you.
