I launched the very first Blueprint Retreat in November of 2013 on the exact same day I also launched my website and Skidmore Consulting was born.
I think I maybe had 300 Instagram followers at the time, but a mighty strong network of Atlanta-based creatives!
Looking back now I see how somewhat crazy and for sure ambitious launching a creative retreat without much of a network was, but naivety plays its part!
I look back on all four of our Blueprint Retreats with joy. These small group in-person experiences were life-changing. Not just for our attendees, but for me as well!
In 2016, I hosted our last retreat in beautiful Beaufort, SC.
With the growth of my online program, The Blueprint Model, and all the new products we had in the works … I had to say goodbye to the in-person retreat. And I cried most of the way home from that event.
In 2017, we launched our bigger “retreat”, Blueprint Summit, which is our in-person business conference for our online Blueprint students! This is a chance to meet our online students IRL (in real life!) as well as welcome back past one-on-one clients and people who attended a previous retreat.
We’ve now hosted two of these events with more than 100 of my online students joining in person this past November!
We love referring to Blueprint Summit as our “family reunion” without the weird potluck lunch!
I’m so very thankful for the opportunity to teach online. It allows me to reach more creative entrepreneurs with the time and money management systems I think are imperative to running a profitable, sustainable, life-enriching business at a price-point that is much more affordable than one-on-one consulting or in-person retreats.
Those dreams of loving women and talking about money and life and business dreams have now come to life and it’s such a gift!
This year, with the growth of Team Skidmore and the way they’ve jumped in to love and care for our online community, I could not be more excited to get back to my roots and offer one-on-one consulting work again! Starting with ….
That’s right! We are bringing back the original Blueprint “retreat”, updated and reemerged! This is a live 3-day in-person event hosted by me!
We will walk through the exact curriculum found inside my online program, The Blueprint Model, but live! In a small group setting. These live events will be hosted one time a year and are a luxury all-inclusive experience you won’t want to miss!
All the details for our next event will be announced to The Blueprint Model waitlist!
