We come together so we can grow together and start living this wild life together.

• Facilitate discussion and insight from the collective decades of experience we all bring to the table.

• Provide time to implement what you’re learning, with guidance and hands on help.

• Blend fun and concentrated work time - the perfect combination for reinvigorating the passion you have for what you do.

• Foster relationships that lend to ongoing encouragement and support. No one “gets” you like a Refiner does.

• Provide a safe space to openly discuss your business and get the help you need - away from your staff, away from competitors, and away from large format vendor groups.

Refine Retreats...

With purpose, I strive to deepen relationships so business growth can happen. What I have witnessed in these gatherings is that in their vulnerabilities is where Refiners are finding the answers to their questions. 

But NO! This isn’t a kumbaya session. No one is given a fire stick and asked to share their deep, dark secrets. Though, the more you share… the more you ask… the more you participate, the more Refined you’ll become. The idea is that when I’m teaching a topic, we each share what we experience in our markets and regions, opening new ideas and possibilities with and for each other. 

The atmosphere created in the intimacy of the Refine Retreats is not accidental.

The friendships.

Does that sound hokey?

Maybe so! But even as an educator and leader, I find safety in these small groups to grow and learn even myself!

Know why I love Refine Retreats?

Day 5 - January 21

Travel Day (Breakfast and Lunch available at leisure until checkout)

Ok, I'm ready. Let's do this!

Retreats are my favorite thing I offer! 
The time is intimate and special. And I walk away with new friends each time. 

I feel like many attendees become mentors and encouragers in my own life, which leads to so many more Refine benefits along the way. 

Refine Retreaters are brought into my personal fold when making the effort to connect and see me as a human with similar needs, beyond just being a teacher. 

• 4 Nights of Lodging

• All Meals and Drinks

• Private Facebook Group for continuity of connection

Take a glimpse into the Refine Retreat Experience

Time with ME! 

- Ashlee Martinelli

"The knowledge I brought back from the REFINE workshop has changed my business, and my life! I went from being the one doing everything, to having a system for this and processes for all of that! Thank you, Amber. I am forever grateful for the lessons I learned by attending your workshop, the friendships made during that time and the life that I’ve regained by implementing your systems, strategies and workflow as training tools in my business."

- Kate Carol

"The Refine Workshop in Austin was incredibly beneficial to me and my company.  The time spent discussing, collaborating, and learning together was well worth the investment.  I left the workshop feeling empowered and confident, with a ton of new strategies that are easily implementable.  If you're hesitating to attend one of Amber's workshops, I highly recommend attending one.  Invest in yourself!"

- Nikki Chambers

"The workshop helped me grow in ways that I knew I needed, but didn’t know how to accomplish, or have the time to execute. But streamlining my processes has allowed me to find time to work on other projects!"

- Melanie Barker

"I honestly couldn’t have rebranded without my workshop Refiners in my corner, offering constructive feedback and new ways to communicate, sell myself and tell my story."

If the event is cancelled beyond my control, you will be treated fairly based on the circumstance.

A shuttle will be provided.

Absolutely! I am happy to help facilitate that. 

I'm happy to facilitate connection. I cannot guarantee the right fit or exact combination of attendees seeking a room, but will connect those that wish to be connected!
