Retreat Design Assets_Who is it for

The Retreat is for you if you’re ready to ditch the struggle, see results, make an impact and do it all with your soul sisters cheering you on.

While you secretly desire to unleash your "inner Oprah" you may:

  • Feel tired of the hustle but continue to dream about so much more
  • Have a thousand ideas but aren't seeing the progress you want in any direction
  • Catch yourself envying other successful entrepreneurs instead of feeling supportive

And we get it -- it's difficult! That's why most new businesses fail.

So -- it's time to do things differently.

“After working with Siobhan I’m now confident in my gifts and talents and have a clear road map to live out my purpose, making the planet a better place whilst doing my soul’s work. If you are thinking about working with Siobhan, I would say, don't think, just do it 🙂 I feel like I have just been given the keys to a place in my heart that was locked and dark. Now, that this door has been opened, I am finally seeing myself in the sunlight, in full colour.”

Retreat Design Assets_How it works


Before we meet, you’ll receive an in depth orientation and welcome packet designed to help us get to know you personally before we meet for our online retreat. The retreat is an intimate experience. Sumi and Siobhan want to get to know you as a person, what your business is about, what you desire, what your challenges are so that we can best serve you and where you’re at right now.

Retreat Design Assets_FAQ-05

I have a new business idea, and haven’t launched yet, is this retreat for me?

Yes! It’s great you’re looking to do this foundation work before you launch. This retreat is designed to help you do a 360 degree review of what kind of company you want to build. Sumi and Siobhan will support you to make sure that you have the 3 core pillars in place for a beautiful soul aligned company. Including your "signature offering" outlined that you can focus on and market right away.

Will this retreat work for my products based business?

The retreat is mainly geared towards serviced based companies as we will be spending time on developing your "$50K offer". Having said that if you’re interested in the other pillars that we’re talking through i.e. feminine leadership, social impact, branding and sales then that part will still be relevant for you and your product based business. If you’d like to ask more detailed questions around your unique situation, you can email us at We’d be more than happy to answer your questions!

I’ve taken business classes before, what makes this one different?

Great question! We’ve crafted this retreat to be a value packed day where you can create the space to do a 360 degree review of your company and (re)build from the ground up. Whilst we’ll be talking about business building, offerings, sales etc, this program is geared around creating a business that honours your soul’s calling and is truly the work you’re meant to do and the impact you’re here to make. We found that other programs offer the business strategy but not this connection & alignment piece nor the focus on social impact. 

Do you accept payment plans?

Unfortunately we don’t accept payment plans at this time. If you would love to do the program but have a challenging time with your cashflow at the moment then send us an email and we can talk it out:

What if I can’t join the retreat live?

Time zones can be a challenge and we’ve picked a time that will suit the majority of participants. You will have access to the recording of the retreat within 3 working days of the retreat so you will get all of the content and be able to work through it at your own time.
