345: Behind the Scenes: Insights from the Inaugural Grace & Grit Retreat

Truth be told, I was super resistant to hosting a retreat for my clients despite the many requests I had received to organize one over the years.

I am SO glad I relented and, in this week’s episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I share some of the biggest revelations that came from bringing 16 clients together for 4 days on a 3000-acre ranch here in Montana.

More specifically, in this episode, I share:

  • Why it took me 20 years to finally say YES to hosting a retreat,
  • How I knew it was finally time,
  • The biggest lessons I learned,

… and so much more.

You may have ZERO interest in hosting retreats, but this podcast just might inspire you to go after the things that you have had on your heart to create but haven’t yet made time for.
