If you’ve created a stressful, high paying job for yourself - rather than an asset - we're going to help you escape that trap, get your life back and take away a whole lot of stress
Most entrepreneurs start a business because they love what they do, 
and want to share it with the world. 
As their business grows though, they start feeling overwhelmed. 
The business pulls them deeper into its stressful never-ending day-to-day management. They find that they 
don't have the time anymore to do what they love.
But let me be clear, we’re not hosting this retreat for people looking 
for a silver bullet. You know who I mean - the whiners, 
the complainers, the “get rich quick” chasers.
This retreat is meant for someone like you – a woman ready to take massive action.  Someone who is serious about embracing fulfilment 
and growing her business.  Someone who will make the most of
our week together.  Oh, and it helps if she has a sense of curiosity and adventure,  because did I mention we will be 
in Italy together having fun?!

We'll work hard but we will PLAY and RELAX hard as well. 
 Imagine a day in Rome to explore... a vineyard tour... 
and – oh my goodness, I am so excited about this – 
a visit to one of THE most beautiful spas you have ever seen. 
Hands down! If there is a heaven on earth, this it is ladies.
The Kleuh was the perfect solution for my small business. It's targeted, mobile responsive, out of the box ready, elegant and simple.  If you're looking for a great template look no further because The Kleuh has your covered.

Hosted by Angela Sedran and Lesley Benson
Lesley Benson and I have taken our 50 years of collective business (and single motherhood) experience to design this retreat for you .

Both our sons are now at University – sigh of relief – but the road to get there has been tough. We’ve moved heaven and earth. We've studied, experimented and tried and failed many times. But we never gave up until we succeeded - sometimes at the expense of our health and happiness. We've both cried ourselves to sleep many times over the years. 

Although I’m a qualified accountant, it didn't give me enough income. Fixing my son's ongoing hearing issues was expensive. So I invested everything I had, took 2 years off work and completed an MBA. It increased my income, but it didn't make me happier.  The corporate world was never for me. It drained my soul, but I felt I had to stay for my son. I was afraid to take the risk.

2007 saw me as Strategy Director for an American multinational. On the surface life great - but I got home after 8 every night and only saw my child for 2 hours a day. Then the GFC hit, and I got retrenched.
Today, I teach women the business skills and leadership mindset to run their businesses like world-class CEOS. I mentor and empower women to follow their dreams and  live the life they desire, like me.  I spend nearly half my year now in Italy, which is my second home, and I do what I love. How blessed am I?

Lesley's path was just as tough.  She's worn many hats in her career, from being a dental hygienist to owning and running an international furniture manufacturing business. In between, she would flip houses for fun. Her friends and clients would always turn to her for advice of what to do with their lives.    .
Like me, her life collapsed during the GFC. Her mother was dying. Her partner, gambled their company to near extinction and her relationship crashed. She found herself single, with a child to look after, and no money.

Lesley’s turning point came one night after working 20 hours straight.  She went home to paint her kitchen as the house was being readied to be sold. She desperately needed the money. That night, she vowed to herself and her son sleeping upstairs that she was going to change their lives for the better. 

What she realised was that she’d inadvertently been coaching her friends and clients when they came to her for advice.  She was good at coaching, she loved it, and she wanted to do more!
 Overnight the bottom fell out of my world. I had very little savings - I'd invested everything in my son. Out of desperation, I I started my first business whilst I looked for work. It was successful, but I wasn't confident enough to take it full time, so I went back to corporate. I kept my business, running it after hours, so I wasn't asleep, I was working. It was exhausting.

By 2016, I was dead inside. I'd spent 8 years consulting to some of the world’s biggest companies. Heck, James Packer’s people even sent me to India to negotiate a deal with one of the world’s biggest property developers. I was coaching senior leaders at BHP Billiton, Lion, South32 and Unilever, to mention a few. My clients loved me but I felt stuck, unhappy and burnt out.

Then one day it hit me like a bolt of lightning!  Girl, what the ARE you doing? You coach 7-figure executives how to run multi-million dollar companies and help your clients make tons more money. They come to YOU for advice! Not good enough to run your own business? Wake up! And so I did.  
In the mean time though, Lesley decided it was time create a create a change of scenery to gain be able to stand back, and gain some perspective to see a new path forward. She also wanted to teach her son that we always have choices, even when life seems at its darkest. So she did what every (sane!) single mum would do at that point and took him backpacking in Thailand! Today she helps women design their dream life, and how to build businesses that support it

Neither Lesley nor I ever had the benefit of a mentor or a support system. Heaven knows what a difference it would have made to either of our lives if we had. I'd have saved a lot of time and a lot of tears.  
I know Lesley feels the same.

Our goal is to help 1 million women achieve financial freedom by 2030, either directly or indirectly, and we'd like to invite you to be one of them. Join Lesley and I in Italy, it's one of the best decisions you'll ever make!

The day is all yours and the city is an open air museum to enjoy. Shops in Rome close around 8pm at sundown and Italians eat late so don’t think the day is over when the evening comes. No way, it’s time to grab a gelato, find yourself a seat in Piazza Navona or Campo Marzio and watch the world go by… (we don’t recommend Vatican tours on this day as it will take all day and it’s best to start early to avoid the crowds.

And did I mention we’ll be in Italy together? :-)
We'll be in Rome’s wine country, beyond the fringes of city life – but within easy access of the Eternal City.  Plan some extra time before or after the retreat to visit Florence or Venice – or stay longer with us in Rome.  Here’s your chance to add more joy, balance, and memories to your life in one of the most beautiful countries in the world .

If you’ve never been to the Italian countryside before, be prepared to have your breath taken away. Imagine rolling hills covered with rows and rows of vines; centuries old olive groves; and avenues with sentinels of tall cypress trees that have inspired poets and artists throughout the centuries.

The renovated farming estate where we'll be staying boasts a 19th century stone farmhouse and 30 hectares of gardens, orchards, vineyards and olive groves. Apartments are comfortable and have a living room, colour TV, kitchenette, microwave and telephone. Wifi is available throughout the estate.

We chose this beautiful venue, and inspiring location for 3 reasons...
1. To nurture your personal vision in a relaxing tranquil space where you can just "be"
This is your opportunity to get away from it all, unplug and be somewhere where you can just be YOU – not someone’s wife, girlfriend, boss, supplier, customer, daughter or mother. 

The only person that you will need to worry about or look after on this retreat is YOU! How often do you get the opportunity to do that? 

Most business owners never take the time to step back and consider their business, and its future.   When was the last time you did? By physically taking you away from your business, this retreat is going to allow you to do and plan for its future – and yours.

2. To help ground you and step into your authentic self 
During our time together, we’ll practice slowing down to find that balance and refuel the oil in our lamp so we have more light to shine.  Our little hideaway will surround you with the peace to do this better than a crowded hotel ever could. 

3. To experience and enjoy the Italian lifestyle...
You won't get a more authentic Italian experience than this.  The estate is warm and welcoming, a home away from home.

We're going to have a ball and create some amazing unforgettable life experiences together.  You'll also have the time to relax solo to reconnect with your inner voice. 
The best investment you'll make in 2019
  •  Airport / Stazione Termini Transfers to the estate on your first and last day 
  •  7 nights in the Roman countryside getting coaching, advice and like-minded collaboration to support your vision and the achievement of your goals.  Accomodation is in the form of shared apartments and twin or triple share rooms as we will be staying on a 30 hectare 19th century renovated farming estate
  •  A welcome gift pack featuring our gorgeous Heads Over Heels 90 Day Planner; a beautiful handmade leather-bound Italian journal, a guide to Rome and other surprises

  •  A wine tour and lunch at a one of the famous wineries of the Castelli Romani, vineyards that have served Rome for over 2,000 years
  • Healthy and delicious Italian cuisine -  breakfasts (7), lunches (6) and dinners (6). All fruit and vegetables served at I Casali Della Parata are grown on the estate.  They also produce their own olive oils and wines
  •      A Celebration feast on our last evening at our "Come as you Be" party where we celebrate our successes over the next few years
  •  A motivational welcome call one week before the retreat to set your intentions 
  •  A private coaching strategy session at our retreat to develop your action plan
  •  Training and tools on how to build and execute a strategy for your business to take it to the next level
