Mollie from @hellomolliebrown shares her experience of the Bali retreat in October 2018!
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO JOIN US ON A RETREAT? WHAT EXCITED YOU MOST ABOUT THE RETREAT?
I have been struggling with finding a healthy work-life balance for some time and have been itching to make travel a bigger priority in my life. Content creation and travel writing are things that have interested and excited me and I knew I needed a push. Bali has been at the top of my bucket list for years and so it felt serendipitous.
WHAT TOP 3 THINGS DID YOU LEARN WHILE ON THE RETREAT?
Hotel & Brand Collaborations + Media Kit Creation – I was probably looking forward to this workshop the most, it did not disappoint!
How to build a dedicated community on Instagram – My engagement rate has skyrocketed from a few small changes I have implemented since the retreat.
Blog SEO 101 – Not only will this help me with my personal blog/brand in the long run, I learned skills and actionable tips that have helped me at my 9-5.
HOW DID YOUR LIFE CHANGE AFTER THE RETREAT?
Overall the retreat was exactly what I needed personally and professionally at this stage in my life. The support and encouragement I received while in Bali, along with the skills I learned, and the friendships and memories I made, have left me feeling more confident in myself than ever before. I am so motivated and excited to implement everything I have learned and see where this can take me. I hope to soon be able to say that because of the retreat I am able to both fund my travels and make money while traveling.
WHAT WAS A HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR TRIP?
A highlight from our trip to Bali was our morning ritual. Each morning we began the day with yoga, followed by goal/intention setting. As a very anxious person this was something I found myself looking forward to, which surprised me. I have carried these practices into my life since returning home and have found myself living more purposefully, and being more mindful.
DID PANGEA DREAMS SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS? WHAT SKILLS DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE RETREAT?
Without question Pangea set me up for success, the wealth of information I soaked up like a sponge while on the retreat is almost overwhelming. I am so excited to implement everything I now know and only wish I started sooner.
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY TO GIRLS CONSIDERING JOINING A RETREAT?
Stop considering, “The things that excite you are not random. They are connected to your purpose. Follow them.”
