Surrounded by like-minded creatives and warm-hearted industry leaders, join us for an escape from the hustle and pressures of chasing success while we invest in giving our businesses focus, engage in intentional community and hone in on what matters most.
Nestled in the small town charm of Waco, Texas, let's trade our laptops for warm cups of coffee savored in the company of just 10 like-minded creatives and big dreamers! Surrounded by live oak trees and a newfound community of like-minded entrepreneurs, you’ll feel like you’re miles away from the hustle of small business life as you unplug for a few days of true relaxation and powerful, heart-centered work.
From October 14-17, 2019, please join us for what’s sure to be a sweet time of refresh, relationship building, gleaning practical takeaways and intentional business planning. During this time, you will be encouraged and poured into by four industry leaders who are passionate about equipping you to build the intentional business of your dreams.
With five sessions geared to impart practical information on creating from a place of truth, two hands-on creative sessions designed to spark your artistic sensibilities and teach you a valuable new skill, as well as dedicated small group time designed to help you really dig into this content, planned breakouts for planning and reflection, and thoughtfully curated surprises peppered in between, Illume promises to be nothing short of life-changing.

introducing our inaugural 6-week mastermind
an optional experience for the creative who's ready to dive into her illume retreat experience with purpose and walk away with clarity on the other side.
Through actionable strategy and dependable accountability, we'll work together to not only hone your goals going into the Illume Retreat, but we'll also map out the best ways to take action on those goals once you return home.
There's no need to navigate this journey on your own. Together, we'll navigate the 3 weeks leading up to the retreat and the 3 weeks after the retreat alongside your fellow Illume Retreat sisters through an intentional mastermind experience.
It's easy to dream big for your business surrounded by a group of likeminded creatives during the retreat. But what happens when you get back to your everyday routine and those big dreams, that sense of Truth, and those lightbulb moments take the back burner?
The Illume Mastermind is designed to continue to propel you forward long after our final day at the Illume Retreat wraps up. I'll guide you through the practical ways you can implement your newly-defined sense of Truth throughout your brand, marketing, and personal life, all while giving you the space to process your questions and work through your pain points in the confines of a close-knit community.
