BOO! WE'RE BACK FOR OUR THIRD RETREAT - BOOKING NOW OPEN
5th - 8th February 2024
The Wholehouse, Brecon Beacons, Wales
WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?
You'd think simply showing up as yourself would be easy, right?
In reality, it can feel like the hardest thing in the world to do
Deciding to be yourself is one thing, knowing what on earth that actually means on a daily basis is another and dare we even. mention the word intention to actually have the audacity to be visibly proud of who you are and all that you stand for.
Unlocking, defining, harnessing and most importantly EMBRACING the wonderful, quirky, funny, intelligent, caring and outright fabulous person you are is the key to seeing success in your business and creating a truly unique, stand out brand.
Stepping authentically into the personal side of your business takes an INTENTIONAL approach.
By signing up to the sweet retreat you are taking the first step to being intentionally YOU and proud.
Setting the same goal month after month with no real plan to achieve it
Posting and praying - sending out content with no intention or strategy
Wondering how on earth to stand out among the crowds and get you and your message heard & understood
Feeling like you should be showing up in a certain way, and like you need to fit a mould in order to fit society's version of success
Chopping and changing your branding, because it never quite feels 'right' for the destination your heart desires
THAT'S WHERE WE COME IN
Intentional connection to yourself to create the brand that connects to your audience
We have spent the last 4 years collaborating with new and existing business owners, just like you, to help them really get in touch with the gift they bring to the world, and harness it as their Unique Super Power.
We know, both from our own experiences and the amazing transformations our clients have been through, that when you step into a brand that looks and feels like you, it's like putting on that incredible outfit that fills you with courage, confidence and the ability to tell the world that YOU MEAN BUSINESS, and things just got personal. SUPERCHARGE this with INTENTION you become unstoppable.

With over 20 years of business development experience in the corporate, education and retail sectors, JoJo has a nurturing tenacity that has created sustainable connections and relationships that form part of her extensive network.
Her sassy reputation precedes her.
Director, Brand strategist, & digital content producer.
Starting her online career in Network Marketing, she was quickly immersed in the challenge of effectively building a personal brand. With hundreds of thousands of people offering the same product at the same price, standing out from the crowd became a necessity. Failing fast and learning faster, within 12 months Rosie had become one of the top leaders within the company.
It was a logical next step for her to teach brand strategy and support others in building successful, leading personal brands using social media. Since 2018, she's been working with ambitious founders, supporting them in building and growing authentic personal and business brands that get them Seen, Heard & Loved by their dream clients.
Her company, Brand by Design offers brand strategy, design, content creation, and social media management - so there's no denying they know a thing or two about transforming what makes someone unique into an online presence that generates income and impact. Building a brand, she believes, is more than just a great logo, it’s about understanding who you are and crafting compelling content which communicates that effectively to your audience, converting casual scrolls to follows and ultimately, to payments & booked out offers.
Like many women, Rosie was pushed out of the traditional workplace after having her first child and later experienced the loss of her family home during a divorce. She firmly believes that women must take responsibility for their own financial stability, regardless of what life throws at them - and knows without a doubt that no matter what you’re doing, the most effective way to achieve this is by building your personal brand.
'Better' is not the answer. You, as you are, is already are enough.
The answer lies in becoming intentional with your actions, your audience and your attitude so the world can see the incredible expertise you bring to the table and the impact & legacy you and they can achieve.
There are no new messages, only new messengers
You see, it's not really about what you do. It's about the way you do it.
Your passion, skills, knowledge, understanding, experience and delivery are completely unique to you, and often, when we're not seeing the success we're looking for then we assume it's because we need to be better.
It's time for you to SEE, HEAR & LOVE your unique self & personality so you can skyrocket your BELIEF in your BRAND & BUSINESS for sustainable, scaleable success
(BASICALLY, OWNING WHO THE F*** YOU ARE)
Have you ever wished that you, your brand and your business we're instantly recognisable?
Your playful, prestigious and professional image seen, heard and loved by your dream clients.
You better believe it's possible.
Just imagine for a moment...
Feeling EXCITED to show up for your business and share your message and your passion
Always knowing exactly WHAT TO SAY on social media, without second guessing yourself
Jumping out of bed knowing you'll be working with a constant stream of INCREDIBLE CLIENTS who light you up and love your results
NEVER having to HIDE yourself because you feel so damn confident that your audience will support you
ATTRACTING an audience of like-minded people who are just like you!
Showing up, and building, a BRAND that EMPOWERS you to reach your version of success
But don't just take our word for it...
Your SASsy home from home.
Secluded on a family owned working sheep farm in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, this incredible house was created to be a space for people to come together and make memories with no stone left unturned. With quirky quotes, bright bold colours and lots of hidden touches this is THE house that pulls the playful & prestige magic together.
All rooms have ensuite facilities, and during your stay you'll have time to make use of the wood-fired hot tub, take a walk in the grounds, sip a hot cuppa on top of the open top, double-decker bus viewing platform or chill out in the cinema room or in front of the roaring log fire.
All your food and drink is included too, as well as a few SASSY surprises from Rosie & JoJo.
We start day two with a morning meditation session in the living room, before heading to the dining room for breakfast. You could also use this time to have a lie in, take a fresh walk in the grounds, go in the hot tub, zip wire or just chat & connect with those around you. Whatever you feel like. There's never any pressure.
Our first session will start at around 11am until 12:30pm and then we'll break for lunch for an hour or so.
Our second session of the day will run from around 1:30pm-2:30pm.
During your stay, you'll also get 30 minutes with our brand photographer so you'll have your slot either this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon.
We meet at around 6:30pm for dinner, then spend some time chatting or playing games in the living room until bedtime.
What happens while you're with us?
We're together from Monday 5th February through to Thursday 8th February and during that time we have a mixture of content to ensure you have time to relax & connect with those around you, as well as work on your intention, planning, brand, belief & business goals for the year ahead of you.
Monday is arrival day. We usually ask guests to arrive between 5pm & 7pm and you'll have some time to get yourself settled after your journey. We'll eat, then likely settle in for a film in the cinema room.
Day Three runs on the same schedule as day two, so you'll well have our morning meditation, plus 2 daytime sessions to work on you and your business.
If you didn't have photos on day two, you'll spend time with our brand photographer today and can utilise Rosie & JoJo to help with ideas, props and creative direction.
This evening, you'll be invited to a secret sassy supper.
Day four is departure day, but not before our Planning & Intention session. You'll map out the whole year ahead of you, and start to work on content & launch planning too.
You'll leave around lunchtime, with a packed lunch for the journey home.
In a word... everything.
All your food & drink, some SASSY surprise
swag & gifts from Rosie & JoJo, notebooks,
pens & any planners we might need to use for
our sessions as well as a Mini Brand Shoot with our
Brand Photographer and around a dozen
digital assets for you to use on your socials
Inclusivity is really important to us, so if you have any accessibility requirements, allergies or needs just let us know and we'll do everything we can to ensure things are taken care of & you can get the most enjoyment possible out of your stay.
