May 3rd - 5th

San Diego, CA & Virtually

Clarify your mission, blast through the inner critic, and change the world with your story!


200 million people in America say they want to write a book-

but only a small percentage actually fulfill that dream.

The same is true for articles, blogs, and other writing.

But if you’re reading this, you know you have a story, mission, or message to share.

 If you’re like me, you feel compelled to write - no matter how full your life is, regardless of fears and doubts, there is a voice that says you were made for this, that writing is part of what you are here to do.

When the Big Magic taps you, if you have the CALLING TO WRITE, my experience is that you won’t be fulfilled (or even comfortable) unless you show up to that page and ultimately share your legacy with the world.

If this is you – JOIN US May 3rd - 5th for a powerful, interactive, inspirational, 3 Day Writing Retreat in San Diego, CA & Virtually!

At this retreat, we’re focusing on IMPACT. Over the 3 days, you’ll take the-

She-ro’s (Hero’s) Journey-

Clarifying your writing vision (live master coaching)

Learning and sharpening your craft (workshops for beginners to advanced)

Having supported and high vibe space to write (devoted individual writing time)


Be empowered with new, effective ways to share your story, mission, message with the world and build a passionate audience of those you are here to serve.

You’ll leave ready TO MAKE (OR EXPAND) THE IMPACT you are here to create.


If you KNOW this is your year to make a huge impact and get your book/story/mission out into the world, but find yourself procrastinating, putting other projects first, feeling stressed and overwhelmed by your to-do list, and giving in to the fears and excuses for why you’re not good/capable/something enough to go all the way, join us this May for the WRITE AND GROW RICH Retreat!

Past retreat participants have become:

- Bestselling Authors

- Media Experts

- TEDx Speakers 

- Six and Seven figure coaches


It’s YOUR TIME now!

If you’re reading this, I believe it’s because your story is needed. You are capable, worthy, important- beyond words. What’s more- I believe you are the only one who can bring the message you are here to bring. That there is someone sitting somewhere right now- needing your story, your insight, your vision.

What if you could connect to your soul, tap into the colossal power of a natural vortex, choose your next big idea, blast through those limiting thoughts, be filled with inspiration and guidance, and make a huge leap the work you are here to share?
