Why Is It Worth Participating in Sam Horn's East Coast Strategic Retreat?
"Individuality is fine, as long as you do it together." Frank Burns, M*A*S*H
Wouldn't it be nice to:
* have a brain trust - a board of advisors - helping you make an important decision so you don't have to figure everything out yourself?
* set aside a weekend to focus on a project you've been procrastinating on?
* benefit from other people's best practices so you can avoid costly trial-and-terror learning and time-consuming mistakes?
* create a strategic plan that holds you accountable for finishing a priority project so you don't feel like you're spinning wheels and getting nowhere fast?
* get away from it all for a weekend to brainstorm your top priorities with a group of smart, talented individuals who have your back ... and your front?
Imagine how wonderful it would be to:
* unplug from your busy life for a few days to get fresh perspectives from people from a variety of professions.
* be part of a collaborative community where everyone has a voice, everyone counts, everyone contributes, everyone receives, and everyone is elevated.
* clarify how you can complete a #1 goal so you have something meaningful and tangible to show for this year.
If all the above sounds good, join us June 21-23 for our Strategic Retreat in Wash DC - Reston, VA.
Many retreaters have thanked us for catalyzing rewarding relationships and increased revenue they said never would have happened otherwise.

* connect with a successful corporate speaker who hired her to deliver paid presentations for a Fortune 500 client in 10 cities around the U.S.
* meet the perfect writing partner (we don't call them ghost-writers) who is helping her produce chapters on her long-delayed book while she's working full-time
* craft a funding proposal that attracted investors for her start-up
* re-boot a career after taking time out - 2 years - to care for an ailing parent
* POP! their website so more visitors were converted into paying clients
* figure out how to leverage a round-the-world trip into a entrepreneurial career
* perfect a book pitch that resulted in a 5 figure deal with a major NYC publisher

Attire for the Sat-Sun sessions is weekend casual.
Remember to bring walking shoes and a swim suit if you want to go outside and take advantage of our nature trails and swimmable lake.
8. We keep our group size small - 16 people max - so everyone has an opportunity to received focused attention from Sam and the group.
In case you're wondering who attends our retreats; we get an eclectic mix of men and women of all ages and walks of life including:

* a Fortune 100 VP wanting feedback to his novel-in-progress
* a respected branding expert ready to reposition his company to reach a new target audience
* a Stanford physician positioning herself as a medical industry thought leader
* former executives with Apple, HP, Grainger and Lockheed Martin planning next steps for their career
* a former chiropractor who wanted to scale her in-person and virtual coaching practive world-wide
* an owner of an online retail business who wanted to ramp up media attention so she could receive funding from investors
* many authors wanting to crystallize a legacy message and signature topic so they could write a book that would break out vs. blend in
* some 50-somethings wanting to figure out their SerenDestiny - and "what to do with the rest of my life"
As you can see, our retreaters come from a wide range of professions and have a variety of purposes for attending our retreats.
What they have in common is they're yearning for an opportunity to be part of a group process where they can bounce their projects off fresh "eyes and ears."
They're eager to hear other people's opinions about what's working and what's not so they can move their project forward now ... not someday.
