Reni from @renikss shares her experience of the Puerto Vallarta retreat in May 2018!
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO JOIN US ON A RETREAT? WHAT EXCITED YOU MOST ABOUT THE RETREAT?
I wanted to join the retreat because I had no connection to a creative community. I wanted to be surrounded by women who shared the same values and passions in life. I was ready to learn more about the creative entrepreneur life.
WHAT TOP 3 THINGS DID YOU LEARN WHILE ON THE RETREAT?
I learned that you cannot pursue a creative journey alone. You need a group of people you can count on and who cheer you on because the creative entrepreneur journey can be very discouraging at times. But I also learned that everyone is a work in progress, even those who have “made it”.
HOW DID YOUR LIFE CHANGE AFTER THE RETREAT?
I began pursuing my creative passions from an entrepreneurial perspective. I finally had the courage to step out of my comfort zone and pursue a path that I’ve only dreamed of before. I have implemented action steps that will take me close to where I want to be with my business.
WHAT WAS A HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR TRIP?
Everyone was super helpful and honest about their experiences. We really came together as a group and there was no sense of competition. We all wanted the best for each other. The hosts were incredibly insightful and down-to-earth.
DID PANGEA DREAMS SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS? WHAT SKILLS DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE RETREAT?
Yes, I believe Pangea Dreams has given me lots of valuable information and insight into the world of travel photography, blogging, and running a business. It helped me sift through my values and my goals. It helped me define what it is I want to pursue even if it is something outside of the travel industry.
WHICH WORKSHOP WAS YOUR FAVourite AND WHY?
I really enjoyed the workshops that centered around business strategy and business skills (Including social media). I do not have a business background, so i wanted to soak up all that knowledge.
Is there anything you want to say to girls considering joining a retreat?
If you want to become a creative entrepreneur, this retreat is for you. Regardless of where you’re coming from, there’s great value in this retreat. You will come away with a sense of direction and support that you did not have before.
