2023 Business Planning Retreat Recap

In January, SOWBO hosted our annual Business Planning Retreat at Carillon Beach in Florida. SOWBO’s business planning retreats bring together like-minded, high-achieving women from all over the United States. Using proven planning methods in both group and individual sessions, we efficiently and effectively map out the next 12 months and create a detailed action plan.

We put aside our day-to-day responsibilities for four days to focus solely on our next steps in business. Planning, brainstorming, and collaborating with other business owners helped each of us feel less overwhelmed, burned out, and lonely. We left energized and inspired.

Oh, and did we mention we were at the beach? (Thanks to @Victorialand_photography for these amazing memories!!)

What is the SOWBO Business Planning Retreat?

Our retreats are hyper-focused and intentional. 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 levels up your business.

SOWBO was created by women business owners just like you out of a need for authentic community. You’ll quickly learn that the heart of SOWBO is all about serving 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

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

The Goal is REAL Community

By now you may have realized that community is essential to the health and happiness of entrepreneurship. Whether you’re aiming for your own mega empire or intimate small business, having trusted relationships provides a more efficient and joyful journey. 

We spend a lot of time preparing for our retreat and creating intentional conversation moments. Our content is structured in such a way that attendees showcase their heart early-on—allowing them to make a more vulnerable connection before we talk about money, strategies, and other important business concepts. 

Our goal for each event is for the women to leave with new friends who they can continue the journey with. We offer a platform for accountability and continued community even after the event is over which makes the continued friendship even easier! 

SOWBO’s Business Planning Retreat is for You if  . . .

  • You own an existing business that sells products or services.
  • You are already making money and have been in business at least one year, but you are ready to grow your revenue and profits 
  • You need a few days to focus on your business (rather than in it!)
  • You desire quiet time by yourself to focus, but also experts nearby to ask the “how to’s”

  • You want a tribe of women you can trust & who will understand
  • Your greatest desire is to make an impact in the world while also spending more time enjoying life with the people you love most.
  • You want to soak up the sounds of beach waves, sip on some wine on the porch swing, feel the warmth of a bonfire, and watch the sunset with other hard-working women who understand 

We’ve created a safe community with curated events that provide an energy boost, inspiration, and clarity on next steps for women business owners. At our 4-day retreat, you’ll enjoy a combination of group and individual business planning time.
