Day 1: Beach House opens at 2pm for guests’ arrival. Unwind from your journey before a light dinner served at 6pm. Then, make sure to join us for Meet & Greet cocktails down by the pool!

Day 2:  Shake off jet lag with a late morning coffee and walk on the beach. Today’s available training sessions cover Targeting Your Ideal Client, and Gaining Confidence with Aggressive Cats after lunch in the downstairs gathering space. Dinner is open this night so you can enjoy some local flavors of area restaurants.

Day 3: This day we will have two seminar sessions with Re-Branding with Gracee Owen and Marketing with Content & Social Media, including activities to create up to a year’s worth of promotions and posts for your business. Enjoy dinner together at the house, followed by some group games and activities!

Day 4: Great day to relax on the beach or to schedule a solo or group excursion! Make sure to join the Beach Retreat group on Facebook if you’d like to plan activities with others in advance. See this article for some unique things to see and do in Myrtle Beach. In the evening, bring your laptop or notebooks to capture all your great ideas for your business growth to the gathering spaces in the house. Small groups can break off to share and support fellow CFMGs.

Day 5: Danelle’s famous and delicious Business Brunch will help you fine tune and explore your business’s growth plan. Group photo will be taken outside (weather permitting) as well. Approved Trainers & Certifiers will have a training session in the upstairs gathering space before dinner to discuss Managing Expectations with Students. Make sure to exchange contact info and any last minute memories at our last group dinner together.
