BALI EDITION - FEB 2017
How did your life change after the retreat?
I left the retreat feeling inspired, reenergized and driven to make my goals a reality! Not only did I learn how to create and be my own brand, but I also gained a team of supportive, strong women and the confidence to chase all my career goals—Instagram, travel blogging and beyond. The skills we learned during our week in Bali are invaluable!
How has your blog or Instagram grown since the retreat?
Since the retreat, my blog has a clear direction and my posts are more compelling and convey a stronger voice. I’m also more organized when it comes to my content creation goals (shout out to Kat Gaskin and the Content Planner for that!) My Instagram has grown tenfold and led to several brand collaborations, too!
Which workshop was your fav and why?
I loved our photo and brand workshops with Carley Rudd! Her workshops challenged us to take a look at what we want our personal brands to say and her food photography workshop gave us hands-on experience working with our cameras.
Tell us about the photoshoots and content that was created while on the retreat!
The photoshoots were so fun and creative! We got to create gorgeous content in the most amazingly beautiful, dreamy places and step beyond our comfort zones in a safe, collaborative space.
How did it feel to be surrounded by other likeminded women? How did that motivate you?
Amazing. Joining a Pangea Dreams retreat is like joining a sisterhood—you become part of a network of inspiring, supportive, driven women who are all on similar journeys. Six months later, we all still share accomplishments, come to each other for advice and cheer each other on! Plus, we’re able to connect with girls who attended other Pangea Dreams retreats and the sisterhood just keeps growing. It’s awesome.
Did the retreat live up to your expectations?
And beyond! It was my first trip of this kind, and the farthest I’d ever wandered from home so I didn’t know what to expect. Tracy worked hard to make everything perfect and to create a warm, welcoming and creative environment. We all had a total blast learning, creating and exploring in beautiful Bali!
