Back in 2019, I had an unbelievable opportunity to spend an entire weekend with some of my best friends. Now I had only met a handful of these besties before we all arrived on that magical Friday. You see, we were attending a blogging retreat in Melbourne, FL, hosted by The Purple Teacup.

Harbor Stay in Melbourne Florida is the perfect place to host a retreat, wedding, or corporate team building event.

The world can tell us a lot of things; that doesn’t make us who we are.

Retreat Advantages

There are so many advantages to attending a retreat, such as finding out a lot more about yourself. All of the benefits you can think of are likely tied back to personal development, mental health, and self-care. You need to take time to develop yourself, and retreats are the best place to do it!

  • Time away from your personal life
  • Learning sessions to enhance your interests
  • Wellness opportunities.

Authenticity doesn’t mean you have to share everything with everyone.

Retreat Sessions

Several sessions were held on Saturday for our bloggers to learn all about Mindset, Twitter, and SEO. I took away something from each of the speakers, and I spoke all about using Twitter for promoting your blog. Our other blogging retreat speakers were Mandy Burnett, Sandy Brantley, Hope Hanson-Baker, Jamie Makin, and Michelle Bradley.

People are waiting in the dark with you. Turn on your light and share it with others.

Biggest Lessons

Over and over throughout the time I spent away this weekend, it was reinforced that we must make time for ourselves. Having a plan, knowing what you want, and keeping your thoughts positive will allow you to achieve your goals.

Figuring out what tasks are actually priorities will help you manage your time most effectively. This is harder than it sounds. That is why I’ve created a workbook to help you figure this all out. Let’s get your actual business and life priorities straightened out.
