Building Your Brand Through Passion & Purpose
Your brand can have a great logo, all the hip pantone colors, and a flowy, playful font, but if you don’t know your “why” or who you’re creating it for, then it’s all for nothing. Aesthetics are just one part of the branding process, and in this workshop, we’ll help you get clear on the rest. Discover your target audience, hone your brand voice, and find your niche in the crowd, so you can communicate effectively and make an impactful, profitable splash with your business or personal brand.
How to Land Brand Partnerships & Collaborations
Brands know the importance of the influencer, and even the micro-influencer. Now that you’ve established your brand, nailed your content, and have the imagery to captivate, it’s time to leverage your efforts. We’ll teach you how to monetize your channels by pitching brands that align with your message. This includes exact email templates to land free product, press passes to events and trips, and even complimentary travel and hotel stays.
A constantly changing platform needs a dynamic strategy, and we bring the most up-to-date tactics for our Instagram workshop. The perpetual changes to the Instagram algorithm may get you down sometimes, but we’ll show you how to use Instagram to engage with, grow, and inspire your niche audience. Discover the tactics that work for influencers in 2020, and tailor them to your social media strategy.
A crash course in photography that will leave you feeling inspired to create. You’ll learn from industry leaders who have honed their experience into practical steps to help you stand out online. From the technical (Aperture, Shutterspeed, etc) to the aesthetic (framing the shot, lighting, etc), you’ll learn how to establish a photography style that speaks the language of your brand. You don’t need any prior experience and we’ll teach you with the gear you already have, so you can start taking pictures that you’re dying to show off!
The Art of Self Love
Why are we so hard on ourselves? In this workshop, we will explore the topic of self-love. We’ll look at why it’s important to our well-being and how it leads to less anxiety and depression, better recovery from stress, and more overall optimism in life.
Wellness Routines & Nutrition for Busy Entrepreneurs
Finding time to take care of ourselves as busy entrepreneurs seems next to impossible, but it’s vital! In this workshop, we will go over routines that successful entrepreneurs build into their lives to take better care of themselves and in turn, be more effective. We’ll also cover nutrition and superfoods that will have you feeling the best and producing your best work yet!
Creating More Balance in Your Life Through Mindfulness
We take care of our bodies by exercising and eating right, but we typically don’t put that much time or effort into taking care of our minds. We have the power to create a happier life and it all starts with our mind! In this workshop, we will introduce mindfulness methods that will lead you towards self-discovery, finding clarity, and becoming more focused than ever before!
Your Expert Mentors
We invite industry experts to teach you everything they know and give you the one-on-one attention you need to retain those skills. You will learn first hand from the experts and get all the behind the scenes industry scoop.
Liberian blogger, yogini, and diversity advocate, most well known for her viral Black Mirror Project, Deddeh Howard has emerged on the influencer scene as more than a pretty face but a strong voice. Her mission: positively raise awareness about the lack of equality, visibility, and opportunity for all races. While her site and social channels serve as a hub for her sense of fashion, heathy lifestyle, beauty musts, and travel, she has been featured in the global media – People, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, BBC News, Al Jazeera, Daily Mail, and Good Morning America – for her message to advocate social change. In the fall of 2016, Deddeh recreated iconic advertisements to show the ads through the image of an African woman. “Beauty is multicultural and multi-colored,” she says, adding that her platform is a celebration of diversity. She currently resides in Los Angeles.

What is the difference between a Signature Retreat, a Photography & Content Creation Tour, and a Entrepreneurship & Wellness Retreat?
Our Signature Retreats are designed for women creatives, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and bloggers looking to learn the skills and strategies needed to succeed in the digital world. During our 7-day retreats, we run workshops on topics like; personal branding, building a community online, social media growth, SEO, email list growth, passive & active income strategies and more. We also teach photography 101 and Lightroom editing 101 – these are basic courses that teach how to use your camera in manual, and basic editing techniques to improve your photos.
Our Photography & Content Creation Tours are specifically designed for women creatives looking to practice their photography skills and create amazing content in a bucket-list destination alongside likeminded women. We’ll be practicing, learning, and creating on location together as there’s nothing like learning by doing! We will focus on practicing photography throughout this 9-day adventure and collaborating with one another. So let’s do this! Join us on an adventure of a lifetime and create photos so beautiful that will make you excited to go home and redecorate your walls with all the beautiful photos you took!
Our Specialty Entrepreneurship & Wellness Retreat is a spin-off of our Signature Retreat offering many similar workshops but with a much heavier emphasis on wellness, mindfulness, and self-love. This retreat was specifically designed for women entrepreneurs who are looking to build their brand through passion and purpose and are craving to lead a happier & healthier lifestyle. This retreat is also special because we are partnering with Deddeh Howard who will be our Main host! Looking to learn new skills, meet like-minded women, and really focus on your mental-health & well-being? This is for YOU!
