SOPHIE’S EXPERIENCE - TULUM 2017
Sophie from @lusticlife shares her experience of the Tulum retreat in 2017!
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO JOIN US ON A RETREAT? WHAT EXCITED YOU MOST ABOUT THE RETREAT?
I loved the idea of joining a ready-made girl gang to travel, learn and connect over social media, yoga and a new culture.
WHAT TOP 3 THINGS DID YOU LEARN WHILE ON THE RETREAT?
The importance of self-confidence, community and consistency!
Anything is within reach.
How to partner with brands when you have less than 10k followers.
HOW DID YOUR LIFE CHANGE AFTER THE RETREAT?
I think the biggest change was a new found commitment to myself, my business and my IG journey. The retreat gave me the confidence to really go for it and stop being overly self-conscious or critical. It was really liberating and the online Pangea community has helped me maintain this a year after the retreat!
WHAT WAS A HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR TRIP?
Meeting such incredible people and leaving with an international, online girl gang!
DID PANGEA DREAMS SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS? WHAT SKILLS DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE RETREAT?
1000%! I learnt how to value my content and how to approach brands within my reach. I learnt tons of new editing skills on Lightroom and lots of great new apps.
WHICH WORKSHOP WAS YOUR FAVOURITE AND WHY?
Toughie - loved them all! Lisa’s on Lightroom was great, Tracy shared some really great, practical tips to work with brands and Sammie was great at reminding us how to hustle hard for followers. Nicole brought a much needed relaxation, mindfulness and energy balancing to the week. It was all epic!
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY TO GIRLS CONSIDERING JOINING A RETREAT?
If you want to explore an amazing new city, make 12 wonderful new friends and learn a ton of invaluable skills, jump right in! It was the best investment I’ve made and seriously the highlight of my year. You won’t regret it! I can’t wait to join for the Alumni retreat in Costa Rica!
