There is nothing like attending an event and getting inspired, but how often do you turn that into action?

That is why a get shit done retreat is so powerful. It's not about chasing shiny objects or getting information overload, it's about you getting something done that is important to you and will move your business forward.

  • 3 pre-retreat planning sessions to ensure that by the time you arrive you know exactly what you will be working on and have the clarity and plan to stay focused.
  • Professional headshot that captures your style from the amazing Nicole Anderson.
  • Everything set up to maximize your focus, such as a meditation expert that specializes in neurodivergent people and early morning yoga.
  • Maelisa and Amber on hand to help you strategize, get unstuck, or help you stay on track. (It's our super power!)
  • Delicious food since all meals are included from Thursday evening - Saturday evening.
  • Luxury surroundings, time with other ambitious business owners and other amazing stuff that we can't share just yet. 😉

Retreat Location

Hotel Arras

Hotel Arras is a stunning hotel in the heart of Asheville, next to many shops, restaurants and fun things to do.

We know most business owners are used to making things work and could benefit from a little pampering and feeling fancy without the stuffiness.

Visit the hotel here.

We encourage you to stay at the hotel to get the most out of the event. A discount code will be emailed to you to lock in a rate of $329/ night. The hotel will be about $1,000 total for a 3 night stay and trust me the place is worth every penny! You can easily take breaks if you need some alone time and honestly, the bathtub alone makes it worth it!

(Bring a friend and split the room for even a better deal!)

Dr. Maelisa McCaffrey and Amber Hawley, LMFT

We love to GSD. We know the power of getting away from your day-to-day life and doing a deep dive into your business or a project.

"I appreciated Amber and Maelisa encouraging us to create goals beforehand. Because of that encouragement, I gave myself some time to think and plan. In addition, the Zoom calls before the retreat was a big help - both in getting to know others as well as in thinking once more about goals."

Meet Our Special Guest Experts  

We are very thoughtful about cultivating an experience that will get you wins without being distracting. You'll experience an amazing photographer (because who doesn't need new branding photos!?) and an ADHD meditation expert to set the tone for the event each morning and to close each day before dinner.

Nicole Anderson

Branding Photographer

From the enchantment of a high school darkroom to unearthing a treasure trove of family photos, a passion was ignited 16 years ago. Today, as a mom boss, ENTP and Leo Manifestor, this visual storytelling virtuoso has spent 13 years curating exceptional, on-brand content for kick-ass female entrepreneurs.

More than a career, it's a calling; Nicole's lens doesn't just capture moments, it's crafting a legacy. Now, dedicated to empowering others, Nicole teaches aspiring brand photographers the art of visual storytelling. A photo cheerleader and your personal hype woman, she will help you not only put out exceptional, on-brand visual content that surpasses your competition, but wipes the floor with it.

Dr. Liz Slonena

Psychologist & Speaker

Dr. Liz Slonena (slow-nih-nah) is an ADHD psychologist, speaker, and business consultant located in Asheville, NC. She empowers perfectionistic business owners to overcome doubt and banish burnout with mindful hypnosis so that they can stress less and live more while earning more. 

Dr. Liz is the co-creator of Brief Mindful Hypnosis, a science-backed way to rapidly overcome stress to help you feel more calm, creative, and confident in 7 days. Her transformative meditations have been featured on YouTube, Aura, InsightTimer, BetterSleep, Thrive360, and Mooditude.

Now, we know that as business owners, creative ideas are never in short supply. The real challenge lies in executing them without falling into the traps of perfectionism, self-doubt, or getting bogged down in unnecessary complexities. We want to ensure you steer clear of burnout and see your projects through to the finish line.

Here's our game plan to help you achieve that major goal by May:

  • Crystal Clear Objectives: Gain clarity on your goals and the necessary steps well before the retreat kicks off. That way, when you arrive, you can hit the ground running without a second thought.
  • Expert Guidance and Support: Receive invaluable feedback and support from two seasoned entrepreneurs and business coaches. These are individuals with a proven track record—having successfully launched multiple businesses, a podcast in the top 5% of all podcasts and a YouTube Channel that makes $$$. (That means no overthinking or staying stuck.)
  • Thoughtfully Crafted Retreat Experience: Join us for a retreat that strikes the perfect balance between productivity and connection. We've carefully curated an experience that ensures you stay focused and in flow while enjoying camaraderie and fun, leaving you free from the dreaded hyperfocus hangover.
  • Efficiency is Key: We've streamlined the process to save you from wasting time reinventing the wheel or chasing after shiny objects. Our goal is to make the journey as smooth and efficient as possible.
  • Neurodivergent-Friendly Approach: Recognizing and respecting diverse thinking styles, our retreat is designed with the neurodivergent brain in mind. It's an environment that supports optimal productivity while keeping your well-being front and center.

Excited to embark on this journey with you! Let's turn those ideas into reality and reach that May milestone together.
