The Retreat

Monday 2nd - Thursday 5th October 2023
Nottinghamshire, UK

In person events are like pure magic for your business. 

Maybe it's having the space to go completely off-topic and stumble upon some hidden truths.

Maybe it's spending extended time with other humans who truly get what life is like as an online business owner.

Maybe it's being able to actually feel comfy (physically and emotionally) and your walls inevitably dropping a little more than usual.

Whatever causes the magic, we invite you to experience it for yourself at our fourth Retreat in October 2023.

If you're anything like us, you want to know how this is going to feel.

This is not a retreat with set content. We're not going to stand at the front and tell you what we think you should be doing with your business.

It's going to be super chill. We'll sit around on sofas and talk. We'll go ridiculously off-topic. We'll learn weird and wonderful things about each other. We'll be overwhelmed with gratitude that we get to be here, with these incredible humans. We may realise hours have passed and we've not opened our laptops or checked our email. We'll eat good food. We'll get lie-ins (if that's what we need most). We'll take a dip in the pool (yes, there's a pool!) We'll learn from each other. We'll get fresh ideas and perspectives. We'll be re-inspired, re-motivated, revitalised!

This is a collaborative, affirming, transformative experience which involves everyone. 

Oh hi! I'm Lizzy (Online Business Strategist), and this is my wife, Emma (Mindset & Positive Psychology Coach).

There's lots of reasons why we're running this retreat, including:

We loved hosting our first two retreats, both before and after kids and pandemic!
We spend all day, every day, talking about online businesses anyway (ours, our clients, that random post we saw on Facebook)
We think so many business owners desperately need and deserve some time out of the daily humdrum of their business to think about their bigger vision & impact
We miss being with real people.
We just think it's going to be super fun and we want new biz besties!

"I felt really at home among Lizzy's gang, and I left with something that I can't name, but I know it's there, because I am doing things in my business and life from a different place. Like, with a little less fear and doubt and delay. Just curiously, playfully, putting things out there. Following my curiosity.

Most of all, and the most valuable thing I ever got from an event, online or in person, I left with a sense of belonging. Of not being the odd one out, but being at home in my oddness among other oddity-embracing folk."

"The most memorable part was the fact that everyone felt comfortable enough to do and be whatever they needed to do or be in that moment. If someone needed to do work, they could sit in the corner and do work, and it was totally fine. If someone needed to take a nap and/or get some solo time, you could and it was totally fine. I've never felt so comfortable just BEING in a group of people before, and that's exactly how I felt.

The "business talking" parts were great because it was loose enough that we could go on tangents and see where the conversation took us, and structured enough that we had really good, interesting conversations that I don't think we would have had otherwise."

"I really loved the loose format of the retreat. It worked really well for me, as someone who needs a relaxed space to connect with others + down time to recharge and keep going. You also managed to gather an amazing group of people for this retreat and it was really amazing to be able to have some many different skills and strengths in one room. 

You two managed to create a safe and vulnerable space for us and I genuinely felt like I went back home with a bunch of new friends. The exchanges we had were meaningful and really fuelled me creatively and energetically. I also felt a lot more confident in my skills and ability to succeed because everyone (especially Lizzy) were so encouraging of me doing things my own way."

"I found such incredible support and encouragement from everyone at the retreat. The laid-back environment was really conducive to reflection and connection."

"I loved connecting with epic humans, the lovely venue and just having a lovely relaxing time! It was very needed."

Things You May Be Wondering

How do I travel to the retreat venue?

You can either drive (there's plenty of free parking), or hire a taxi from a nearby train station. We can help you organise this, especially if you're flying in!

The address is Horspool Luxury Retreat, Horspool Farm, Gibsmere, Nottingham, NG14 7FS.

What are the timings for the retreat?

Please arrive at the venue from 5pm on Monday, 2nd October. Dinner will be at 6.30pm, and the welcome gathering will be at 7.30pm. We very much expect/hope that everyone will have arrived and settled prior to the welcome gathering. 

On Thursday, 5th October we'll be wrapping up around 9.30am.

What are the sleeping arrangements?

All bedrooms are en-suite. Each room has a mixture of double and single beds. Rooms will have 2-4 people in. 

Unfortunately we can't offer private rooms. Please don't ask as it makes us feel bad! 🙈 If you're not happy sharing a room, this is not the right retreat for you. 

Will my dietary requirements be catered for?

We can cater for most dietary requirements. All food will be vegan, and there will be plenty of gluten free options.

If you have any additional specific dietary requirements, please do let us know before booking and we will check with our caterer. (We will hold your space whilst we check).

If you book without letting us know about your dietary requirements, unfortunately we can't ensure these can be catered for. 

Will I be able to talk to Lizzy directly about my business?

Yes, there will be plenty of structured and unstructured time for conversation with Lizzy and other attendees about your business. 

What do I need to bring?

Mostly we'll be chilling at the venue - PJs and onesies are encouraged!

You'll also want to bring a swimming costume if you want to pop into the pool or jacuzzi.

The weather can be very hit or miss in October - so bring a range of clothes, including warm! 

There will likely also be the option to go on a walk around the local area and you'll want to make sure you've got proper footwear for that.

Are you bringing your kids to this retreat?

Similar to our September 2022 retreat, our girls (4 and 5) will likely be around in the later afternoons/evenings, and overnight, but they will be at school during the day. 

Is this a women only event?

No, it's not, although it's probably going to be majority women. All genders are very much welcome.

Can I spend my Lizzy Credit on this?

Due to the 'real world' costs of running a retreat like this, unfortunately you can't apply Lizzy Credit to this. Please see full Lizzy Credit terms here. 

I have a different question
