What'S Included

The plan is to make your retreat as stress free, relaxing, fun and inspirational as possible. You’ll find everything you need included in the price from the moment you drive through the gates to this beautiful hinterland retreat. You’ll get…

  • 3x nights accommodation in our own private luxury hinterland retreat (pics below).

  • All meals! We’re talking fresh, organic, locally sourced, healthy meals for your entire stay. That’s 3 breakfasts, 3 dinners and 2 lunches, plus tea, coffee & ample fresh fruit and snacks (we love snacks). 

  • 1x interactive peer to peer mastermind session that puts you in the hot seat to troubleshoot any aspect of your business (and you’ll help others do the same).

  • 1x practical brand audit workshop so you can take steps right away to elevate your brand, attract more clients and position yourself as the leader that you are.

  • An energising guided yoga class every morning x3. 

  • Plenty of free time to rest, recharge, work and connect as you please - we’re allowing lots of down time so you can just get on with what you need to do too (whether that’s lying by the pool, diving into a leadership book, or writing your entire email sequences, the choice is yours).

  • An optional visit to walk and explore Springbrook National Park and one its most beautiful waterfalls - because the nature is just incredible around this part of the world!

  • A gorgeous goodie bag featuring handpicked treats from local suppliers and partners to perk you up when you return to your desk.

  • Plus we’ll have a photographer and videographer discreetly popping in to capture some of the action - why not relive the epicness!


What'S not Included

  • Flights. The nearest airport is Coolangatta (OOL) and there are plenty of affordable flights from major Australian cities to get you here.  

  • Transfers. We can arrange a driver for you at a cost of $20 pp each way from Coolangatta airport or you can grab an Uber and share with a new pal. 

Check out your dreamy escape…

Pretty beautiful yeah? We think so too!

About your host

Haley Berryman is a marketing nerd with over a decades developing strategies, copy and brands for start ups & corporate clients. She’s also the founder of Cool Wow Collective, a modern marketing and talent representation studio that connects creative freelancers with incredible clients who need their expertise. She knows starting a biz or freelancing can be an isolating journey, and is passionate about creating unique experiences and building more ‘real world’ opportunities to connect. She organises regular meet-ups for self-employed creatives over ice-cream and has run two successful mini biz retreats before deciding to create this ‘creative boss retreat’.

Why it's a good investment

  • Connect with a bunch of self-employed creatively driven women ready to take their business up a notch. Hello instant cheer squad!

  • Get strategic brand advice to help up-level your business.

  • Focus on areas that matter most to you without day to day demands and distractions (yes we mean clients) getting in the way.

  • Find the space to get those big items ticked off your 'to do' list once and for all (you know, the ones that will grow your business but have been slipping down the list for way to long).

  • Changing up your environment is a proven way to spark inspiration, craft new ideas, and create space to reflect. This is the perfect place to do that so you can head into the last quarter of 2019 with laser point focus and a new wave of energy!

Click the button below to apply and reserve YOUR SPOT!

*Price is based on twin share room and excludes GST. There are also two queen bedrooms available for $1149 + GST (if you have a friend you don't mind sharing a bed with please let me know and I may be able to offer a slightly lower rate). A deposit of 20% is required at the time of booking to secure your spot. The remaining balance due one month before the vacay.  


Do you offer a payment plan?
Yes. But will still be required a non-refundable deposit to secure your spot and we will work with you directly on a payment plan, just ask.  Note that you will need to be paid up one-month before the retreat.   

Will the schedule be hectic? 
No way! The idea is to allow you plenty of space to do your own thing. It's a chance for you to work on elements of your business you have been neglecting (like systems, automation, your website etc) and get inspired by a group of new people and a new environment. The idea is that people will be working, so please be mindful of this, and there will be plenty of time for wine and chats each evening. We will send an itinerary to you closer to the retreat date with all the exciting details. 

Do you cater for special dietary requirements? 
Yes. No problem, we have a professional chef on hand and the food is fresh, healthy and vegetarian/vegan friendly. We can easily provide gluten free options too. Just let us know on your application form and we’ll make sure options are available.

How does the mastermind session work?
A mastermind group is essentially a group of smart peers who help you tackle challenges and solve problems together. Our house will be split into two groups of 4 people each. You will then each get 45minutes in the 'hot seat' asking your peers to help you with elements within your business. It's an incredible experience and you will find so many solutions within the room and no longer feel so isolated in your business struggles (believe me we can all learn from each other). 

What should I bring?
Laptop, phone, charger, a good book, swimmers (there is an epic pool) and your A-game. We will have pads and pens and some other little goodies for you to get the work done.

Can I talk to someone before I apply? 
Yes, just email me on with any questions and your contact number and I’ll call you to chat. 

What will I get out of it?
This retreat offers you the chance to get quality feedback on your business, recharge in nature and focus on projects you've been putting off. You'll get an invaluable mastermind session and a personal branding workshop. Not only that, but you'll meet 8 other self-employed creatives to share experiences with and draw inspiration from to tackle the next phase of your business.
