Timea from @themacarongirl.travels 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 was dreaming about joining the retreat since forever!
I wanted to get to know experts from the influencer industry, wanted to know more about content creation, passive income strategies and first of all wanted to meet amazing ladies all over the world, who shares the same passion as me.
WHAT TOP 3 THINGS DID YOU LEARN WHILE ON THE RETREAT?
I learnt so many things, that I am not even sure I can choose the top 3.
Shooting in manual, working with brands and hotels, editing photos are just highlights. But this retreat gives you much more than “just” knowledge about the influencer life. It gives you self-confidence, life-long relationships and you became part of a really supporting and loving “family”.
HOW DID YOUR LIFE CHANGE AFTER THE RETREAT?
What changed a lot is the way how I think about being an influencer.
I have a full-time job and sometimes I felt it is so hard to keep in balance the time I spend with my friends and family, with growing my social media account and with my full-time job But I learnt how to maintain a healthy balance between all parts of my life, which was very useful for me.
WHAT WAS A HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR TRIP?
There were 3 main highlights for me from this trip.
1. Last night candle ceremony. That was THE perfect end of our retreat.
2. Our team. All the ladies were really supportive and caring. After the retreat we have created a group on IG, which helps us to support each other even after our trip! I am so grateful for all of them!
3. We have learnt so many things, one of the most useful for me –where I felt the less confidence in myself before the retreat– was the workshop about how to contact hotels and brands for possible collaboration.
DID PANGEA DREAMS SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS? WHAT SKILLS DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE RETREAT?
I gained confidence related to my own personal brand and how I would like to continue my influencer journey.
WHICH WORKSHOP WAS YOUR FAVOURITE AND WHY?
My favourite workshop was about how to contact brands for possible collaboration.
Is there anything you want to say to girls considering joining a retreat?
Don’t hesitate! Do it! It is gonna be a “once in a lifetime” experience, which you will tell to your grandchildren.
