Meet 3 Women Who Leaned in, Let Go, and Learned the Power of Retreating
Have you ever had one of those weekends where the energy created lingers for days, sometimes weeks, afterwards?
I’m still reeling from all of the powerful shifts I witnessed at our recent 3.5 day Sage Your Soul retreat in Sedona. It’s a privilege to facilitate growth for female entrepreneurs, and I want to give you a taste of it, even if you weren’t able to join us on the actual retreat.
This week on the Breakthrough Babe Podcast, I’m introducing you to 3 inspiring business owners who get candid & vulnerable, sharing their retreat experience so you can know you’re not alone in what you’re likely going through in your own biz.
I recommend that you listen in to Episode #116 to hear - in their own words - all about what personal pain points they came to the desert to solve, what they released, what insights they gained, and how they’re planning to implement them back at home post-retreat.
I’ve included a few key takeaways below, as well as each woman’s contact details if you’d like to follow their journey from here. We go deep on the actual episode, and I hope you tune in to feel the impact of their stories.
This is quantum change leading to quantum growth in action - you don’t want to miss this ep!
About Sage Your Soul
Sage Your Soul is a three and a half day retreat that I host in the transformative setting of Sedona, Arizona.
It's all about going deep within your soul, letting go of the things that are holding you back, and regaining a sense of purpose and direction to pursue the goals you have for your life and business. It's an intentional program where we release what's no longer serving you, call in and define exactly what it is you want to create, and then help you figure out how to make that happen.
Though taking time away from your business can feel scary at first, it’s incredible to see what can happen when you give yourself three and a half days to focus on yourself. So often we need to step back - retreat - in order to spring forward.
Meet the 3 women featured on this episode who attended the most recent retreat:
Shannon Riley is a Social Media Manager and Creative Strategist. She also provides a form of life coaching called Heartbreak Coaching, which is for people who have gone through a breakup or have experienced any type of grieving within relationships, and are ready to move through that with her guidance.
Kiki Tyler is a Goddess Activation Coach and she helps female entrepreneurs balance their masculine and feminine energy to re-energize their businesses. Her work helps women in business feel more in flow without the hustle so they can attract their ideal clients with ease.

Some quotes from the episode:
I highly recommend you listen to the full episode to hear each of the women go into detail about their own experiences.
Here are a couple of captures to give you an idea of the range of our discussion. To hear who said what, and get more context to the story behind the quote, tune in!
“One of the things I wanted to work on during this retreat was making my business more scalable so that I could stop exchanging time for money.”
“I definitely had to lean into that discomfort and realize that the time away would absolutely be worth it.”
“I knew I needed help. I feel like I've been spinning my wheels for years now.”
“I had to consciously choose to close that part and move to the next part.”
“I no longer felt like I was at the fork in the road. I felt like I was finally moving down the road. And I knew what was the next right step. The next right decision.”
“Going into the weekend, I wanted to see a path forward out of the overwhelm.”
“You start to realize, like the other women here, we're all doing different things, but we're able to help each other. And we're able to form these connections and leverage different types of expertise. And that's a really, really special thing to walk away with.”
“The amount that you get out of it is relative to what you put into it.”
“When you're at a retreat, human beings are mirrors to your emotional inventory. And the beautiful thing about a retreat is you're meeting up with conscious business people who can be great mirrors.”
“It changes you. It changes the wiring of your brain. It changes how you come back, and how you look at things to what you're grateful for and what you didn't realize you had. It just gives you this whole new outlook.”
