The Amalfi Hotel in Chicago!

If you are an established mom business owner, or a work at home mom, or thinking about starting your own business, ponder this:

  • Working harder at your own business than you did when you worked for someone else?

  • What if your business is viable?

  • What if you had someone to guide you on the next steps?

  • What if you had support to get to where you’re going?

  • What if the number of hours you spent went down and your profit went up?

  • What if your family saw more of you?

  • What if you knew how to find more ideal clients? The ones you love to work with?

  • What if you worked hard AND got paid for it?

  • Connect with other like-minded mompreneurs who understand your world?

  • Are you ready to learn how to build a successful business, and then to make a plan to do it and start taking action IMMEDIATELY with an experienced business coach to mentor you each step of the way?

  • What if you ate five excellent meals that you didn’t have to cook?

  • Imagine two nights of uninterrupted sleep in a luxurious hotel surrounded by unbelievable beauty!

  • What if you had on-site spa services to pamper you and make you feel loved?

This is a learn and DO event. You are working ON your business in a supportive and nurturing environment.

This weekend, you walk away with awesome tools for your business toolkit–plans, guides, checklists, action items, next steps… You’ll be doing the work of business owners, the stuff it takes to build a successful business, that you often push aside when you’re busy.

So much business coaching and training is packed into this weekend, so you accomplish much in the short time you are away from your family.

I was soooo inspired by all these women you brought together. I really enjoyed the weekend and learned a lot about so many things. I was telling everyone about it and I have more women interested to join. ” Ravi Choudhry, Founder Neuro Health, Inc.

Private coaching clients pay $300 per hour to learn these tools over weeks and months of one-on-one coaching. This information is $3,000+. It has been packed into one deluxe weekend for mom.

The small print:

What is not included in your MomBizRetreat registration fee is your hotel room at Amalfi and the lovely spa services you choose yourself.

You owe it to yourself, your family and your business to take care of yourself, to be the best mom and business owner you can be.

Take this time to do the visioning, planning and strategizing that will allow you to be successful on your own terms and create a business that you and your family love!

Let us remove all the risk for you.

The return on your investment is guaranteed! If at the end of the weekend, you have done all the work and you don’t walk out with the tools, knowledge and strategy that you need to make money in a business you love, we’ll give you 100% of your registration fee back. Guaranteed.
