Entrepreneurship is all about turning your dreams into a reality. It’s about creating the life you’ve always wanted while doing the work you enjoy and feel destined to do. Many new online entrepreneurs dream of hosting a live event such as a retreat. If you dream of hosting a mastermind retreat, there are many things you need to consider in order to ensure your event is successful for your business as well as those in attendance.

In this episode, I’m sharing how I turned my dream of hosting a mastermind retreat into a reality and the steps I took early in my business to ensure its success. I explain the importance of developing proof of concept for new services or products you launch, how to budget your expenses when planning a live event, and the importance of learning from your mistakes and listening to your clients to improve the results of future events. I also explain the importance of hiring an amazing team to support you through the launch of your live event and the impact that using videos and photos in your marketing campaigns can have on your event’s success.
