About our Speakers


Have you ever felt like the more you get done the more there is to do?

To-do lists multiply like Gremlins when they get wet, family responsibilities never end, calendars are bursting at the seems, and there's very little time to breathe in between.

Maybe you're like so many of us and you're seeking deeper relationships and real life connections with a community that understands the numerous demands of being a woman in business.

We live in a world that loves to hurry. But in order to be present in our relationships, for our communities, ourselves and our businesses we have to resist being swept away.

We have to actively slow down and quiet the noise so that we can hear our own voice.

It can feel tough at times...and that's where we come in.

At this retreat - you get to BE whatever it is you need to be in this moment. 

You can be tired, excited, nervous, confused, bursting with joy or all of the above and more.

We see you...because we are just like you.

You're a multi-passionate woman who loves her work, friends and family, and life in general. But...

You're here because you want to breathe joyful, soulful life into your business and you want to inspire others to do the same...

Rested + Relevant is a built in network of fiercely dedicated, creative and adventurous women who want to see YOU SUCCEED. The only thing missing is YOU.

Go ahead and add us to your list of biz besties!

Community over Competition.

While we have carefully curated a weekend that is balanced with delicious content, engaging activities, and ample rest time we wholeheartedly want you know that ALL planned activities are optional. You may sleep in, stay up late, and participate at your leisure. This weekend is for you...

Stay up late. Sleep in. We'll bring breakfast to you...

- Madeleine Dore

I Didn't Do the Thing Today

Withdrawal momentarily from the busyness of entrepreneurship  to reset your pace.

Create a REALISTIC PLAN that realigns your actions to support your top priorities.

Learn more about your money, storytelling for your biz, and how to turn trial into triumph.

Connect with a valuable network of encouragers and enjoy some YOU time.

THroughout the weekend you will...

You will leave this retreat feeling refreshed, energized, and more confident in your ability to ENJOY your business and life.

Packing my bags now!
