I’ve participated in this visioning retreat three times and each unique experience has provided me with exactly what I need at the time. Renee is very gifted at creating an experience that is powerful, deep, fun, productive, spacious, focused and expansive all at the same time. And the women business owners that attend these are amazing (I’ve made many great connections!). A huge gift to give yourself and your business. Diane

Invaluable! One of the most powerful things I've done for myself and my business was to take part in this retreat! Nettie Hartsock

Renee’s business coaching has been invaluable to me and the growth of my business over the last 8 years. She holds a “big space” for her clients and is brilliant at helping you release fears, step into your power and believe that you have the resources and wisdom to accomplish your goals. I am so grateful to have her on my support team!! Erin

Renee's business visioning retreat provided the space I needed to step back and look at my work from the perspective I had when I first launched. The retreat also gave me permission to slow down and tend to my soul and not just my to-do list. I'm in transition and in the midst of many changes; the retreat supported me in carving out much needed space to find stability and focus. Renee knows exactly what she's doing and works from that soulful place that she helps guide others to, as well. Paige, creativity coach

Renee's workshop was well paced, insightful and inspiring. Renee offers a calm and confident presence and practical tools for stepping back and slowing down in service to an authentic and heart centered approach to growing a business. Through this workshop, my intuitive sense to take things slowly was affirmed and I feel less overwhelmed about moving forward in my business. If you are seeking to get more clear about yourself and your relationship to your business, I highly recommend investing your time and energy with Renee! Sarah, yoga teacher/transformational coach

Renee helps people get to the bigger vision of their business by supporting them in connecting to their wise inner selves where all the answers lie. —Mary

My business is in a period of change and I came to the retreat to help support this change (ideas, clarity). Being with the other business owners was so helpful – there was so much knowledge and experience that you couldn’t help but learn and grow. —Carol

I often sit alone in the process and planning my business. I saw this opportunity to be in a small, guided group setting and leapt at the chance to be with other women and receive support and insight around my business. —Karen

This retreat was very helpful for me personally and professionally to remember, stop, look, listen to myself, then act. —Donna

The small group, the calm space and gentle guidance from Renee all combined perfectly. It was a very worthwhile and insightful day. —Ellen

Renee led us through an amazing amount of “AHA” moments in a scant 4 hours! How did she do it? It all felt gracious and voluptuous and nothing was missed. She mentioned Einstein time – she must have created a metaphysical time bubble for us. Much progress made in 4 hours – incredible! —Sue

Wonderful opportunity for self love, sharing, focusing and personal growth in a tranquil environment. Each woman was a gift. Thank you! —Marcia

A special opportunity to focus on my business in a retreat setting; this group and gathering made me feel empowered and excited for what I’m creating in the New Year. —Bella
