"[The Illume Retreat] wasn't just a business conference to get tools and ideas to grow our companies. Although I got that from Illume as well, I think this went so much deeper, really diving into who we are holistically as entrepreneurs. It developed relationships, opened up conversations, and reminded all of us that we're not so alone on our struggles to create something excellent in the world. I left feeling encouraged, reenergized, and supported by a whole new group of boss ladies from across the country."
