For My Soulful Women Entrepreneurs…

Do you feel stuck, not knowing how to grow or move your latest vision for your business ahead?

Are you experiencing stagnation in your business? Plateauing in income or stuck in what to create for your community of clients?

Are you feeling out of tune with your intuition and knowing what you are being asked to embody or direct to move your aspirations in your business forward?

Are you feeling uncertain in finding or knowing with clarity what you are “supposed” to do to get to the next level of growth or expansion in your practice and how you serve?

Navigating through all the places where we are being asked to hold in order to thrive or succeed in our aspirations with our business can be overwhelming.

It can be difficult to not lose ourselves to the patterns of burn out, over extending ourselves, believing we need to hustle to get ahead or to find the success we seek in our business.

I am here to tell you there is another way.

Our business is an extension of ourselves. It requires energy and attention to feed and nurture, and our task is to know what that looks like so we can give our places of our practice what we need so it can grow to where we want it to be.

What we can struggle with is this...

We lead with our personal fears and beliefs in our business. We muddy what our business needs with what feels comfortable for us, abandoning our own intuition because we are afraid that we have to do things a certain way to get the success we seek.

We overextend ourselves, or neglect to listen to where our business is guiding us. Instead, we try to control or manipulate, hustle and go against our natural flow causing us to stagnate or stay in resistance.

We look outside of ourselves to others and how they are “doing” it, comparing outside success to our own, and in that way adopting a way of doing business that doesn’t align to how we create and flow.

As a fellow entrepreneur, I understand the challenges in trying to figure out what we need to do to get to the success we are seeking without losing the integrity and heart of our work, or doing things that feel out of alignment with who we are.

Horse Wisdom for Business Mastery is an opportunity to clear the decks, wash away what is not working and drop into clear and intuitive wisdom that will give us clarity into where we are really getting stuck in reaching our outcomes and what we need to do to shift it.

Why Horses?

Horses have been my secret weapon, giving me clear guidance and feedback as to what energy I need to tap into and embody to shift what is happening in my business.

Horses give us pure feedback. They are reading the energy around us and what we are holding space for without bias or agenda. It is not based in being attached to your results instead their feedback is based purely on what is being read by your energy.

We are an extension of our business, our energy, how we are showing up. What we are holding within ourselves has an impact.

Sometimes the path to creating more income in our business is not about having a better marketing campaign, rather it is about being able to master our boundaries with more ease and empowerment in what we are allowing in our space.

And the lack of creativity and clarity can come not because what we are doing isn’t enough or impactful for people, or that we need to hire a copywriter to write us more compelling copy, but we need to face our fear of showing up in our authenticity and where the power of our voice and medicine is what is really needing to be shown in our message.

In the Business Mastery retreat, we seek out the purity and wisdom of horses to give us feedback in what our incongruences are within how we are showing up in our business, highlight with clarity where the places of disconnect and stuckness are so we can address them and receive different results.

It is where we will take a look at all the areas that are feeling stagnant, strip away the assumptions and get really clear in what is necessary to create a shift to the outcomes we are truly seeking.

I recently had the pleasure of enjoying a three day 1-1 retreat with Hillary Schneider at her ranch as the beginning of our 6-month coaching program. I can’t say enough wonderful things about the experience and Hillary.

The ranch is nestled in a breathtakingly beautiful valley. I had long been desiring some space and time to rework my business model and long-term vision. It took no time at all for me to get that space due to the surroundings and my accommodations, the lodge and the ridiculously good food. I had nothing to worry about during my time there except what I wanted to accomplish.

My list of desired outcomes included understanding (and owning) my leadership style, mapping out a business plan that is in sync with the rest of my life–a holistic approach. To me, that was A LOT to accomplish in three days.

We started day one with an amazing breakfast and some time outside both of which helped with focus. Right away, Hillary was able to sort out all of my desired outcomes and formulated a process to make it happen. I never felt like this was a cookie cutter process–we co-created an agenda that would get me exactly what I needed. She also checked in to see how I was doing energy-wise as we went along which was much appreciated since we were deep into strategic planning which can be tiring.

I’ve worked with several coaches over the past few years and I’ve gained insights for my business, but I felt like Hillary really got what I do, how I show up and what I want. She was able to help me uncover my strengths, natural style and the path to success on my terms. This is rare. She really is a unicorn.

One of the reasons I chose to work with Hillary was for the work with the horses. As a lifelong equestrian, I know the power of these animals, their sensitive nature and the connection they have with humans. This was an entirely new facet, though. It was fascinating to see how the horses can help you see the lens through which you view the world and offer a different perspective in a non-threatening way. Hillary’s observations and powerful questions facilitated some big ahas.

I discovered that I have several beliefs about myself that needed some adjustment. Because the learning was experiential with the horses, I feel like those lessons have really stuck. I learned about connection and leadership and have taken those lessons home and I use them daily. I can’t remember another time that learning has resulted in an ongoing shift and continued learning.

Again, Hillary was able to take what happened in the sessions with the horses and apply that to the coaching and planning work away from the horses. Everything felt custom-tailored to me and it felt like I was finally able to pull together ideas, concepts and offerings that I’d been struggling to connect for years. It felt aligned to me, rather than following someone’s step by step program. Hillary also shared her entrepreneurial journey which was helpful for me. I learn by hearing about other’s experiences. Her transparency and generosity are much appreciated.

The peacefulness and spaciousness of the retreat center are a big part of why we accomplished so much in three days. I’m still so excited about what we mapped out: my leadership styles, my business and life vision, programs, pricing, messaging, marketing (in a way that works for me) and a plan to bring all of this to life. Again, these are things I’ve been wanting to have for years–and we did it in three days. We’re just beginning our work together, but I feel like I’ve got incredible support and that what emerges over the next few months will support me, my business and vision for years to come.

If you are at a place in your business where you are frustrated with trying to figure out what needs to change, and are looking for an impactful and accurate space to receive clarity and wisdom that has tangible applications to how you are showing up and holding your business, this is how the retreat unfolds…

 

The Details:

The depth of this retreat includes looking at all layers of our business and ourselves that hold us.

Day 1: Going within and looking at the internal places we are getting stuck.

On our first day of the retreat, we will be diving into where we are feeling stuck, both in how we have created our business and ourselves, identifying the core places where we have not been able to shift and where we feel are feeling frustrated.

In partnership with the horses, we will be able to discover what is at the core of our places of stagnation and where things are feeling disconnected and how it applies and shows up in us who are leading the vision of our business and the pieces of our business.

Each woman on the retreat will have opportunity to have time and space to have their individual challenges addressed while being supported in a community where we will find shared places where we are in a holding pattern in our business.

Day 2: Clarifying the Wisdom

On our second day, we will be going out to the herd to get feedback and mirroring as to what wisdom we are needing to tap into to address our challenges.

We might find that we are being asked to strengthen our boundaries, or drop into a deeper level of authenticity of our work.

We will be spending the day with the herd listening to the wisdom that comes from a place intuition, looking to the herd to be the mirror of wisdom and helping us tap into our own internal source of intelligence in finding the solution to what is keeping us stuck.

Day 3: Embodiment

Day 3 is about stepping into the embodiment of the wisdom and energy we are being asked to shift and change to witness different results in our business practices and our leadership in it.

The power of the horse is that it gives us an opportunity to embody the wisdom, not just talk about it. You will experience a day of exercises that are designed to help you feel into what does it FEEL like to be in your wisdom and a new energy in relationship to your business so you know how that visceral feels and what is being asked to be shifted in the embodiment of how you are showing up so you can step into a more congruent space of being.

In our embodiment day, we are also going to hold a vision of our business that came in clarity through our wisdom day and what it feels like for us to hold that in our bodies and our intention so we can see the fruition of it come to life.

Day 4: Applying our Wisdom: The Structure of Change

On day 4, we will be addressing how we apply the wisdom and embodiment we have gained from our first 3 days and how it actually manifests in the changes we need to make to the containers of our business.

It is here we will be addressing things like:

  • The change in our business model

  • Marketing

  • Identification of our clients and shifts around who we serve

  • Our message and the empowerment of how we hold the exchange of rates around our services.

Each woman will have time to personally address the changes that need to be made in a practical and intuitive way and what it looks like to bring that change forward into how she is creating and showing up in her practice.

Day 5:  Integration and Reflection

On our last day of the retreat, we will take some time to be thoughtful about how we integrate everything that was revealed to us during the retreat.  It is an opportunity to dive deep into the creation of the practices that will help us bring forward the wisdom of the retreat experience and reflect on what was the most impactful for us to witness for ourselves and the containers of our business.

In order for us to bring the wisdom and learning forward, we need to be able to map out a practice that is going to have us apply what we learned so we bring forward the full value of our time together.

It is deeply important to me that with each retreat that I facilitate that we spend time being intentional in how we bring what was uncovered forward so that your time in retreat with the horses and I is lasting and sustainable and supports the shifts that you are seeking to make.

I came to the Horse Medicine retreat needing some clarity. I had reached a point in my professional and personal life where I felt like I was stuck in the rat race, and lost sight of my true values and beliefs. Anxiety kept creeping up, and at times I found it difficult to breathe. The constant mental chatter and negative self-talk were both mentally and physically exhausting. When I first arrived at the ranch, it was clear that the space was magical. Hillary has a way of making all people feel welcome, even though we had never met one another. The entire experience was deeply profound and one I will never forget. The horses allow you to gain perspective in life and to remind yourself of what is truly important. I left feeling lighter and with a great sense of peace. Hillary’s wisdom and life experiences are remarkable. I would strongly recommend this retreat for other women who are looking to feel empowered.

I was feeling on the verge of a transition in my life. I could feel myself ready to both transform and emerge, yet there was a huge part of me that was confused, insecure, and afraid. I knew I was taking a big step somewhere, but I did not know where. I came seeking clarity, direction, and strength. And I got it all, and more. The herd offered a gift of unconditional love and acceptance in such a pure form that I have never felt before. They so gently and with so much support, helped me face with ease the blocks that were in my path and asked nothing of me except to know me and for to be my authentic self. I was reminded of my dreams and shown that they are real, and they do exist in this world. I was shown my path and asked to step into it. A torch was passed to me and I was asked to to take up my role as a leader. My weekend with the herd and Hillary was was a so magical and gift of the highest form. Hillary’s horses are filled with so much love that they continually brought tears to my eyes, not of sadness but of gratitude and humility. The weekend was so magical that part of me is left in disbelief, and so magical that it couldn’t not be real. I left feeling complete.

I am a true believer that the universe will provide you what you need when you need it.  While on Facebook one day a post showed up from Hillary regarding an upcoming horse medicine retreat.  It couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.  Having worked with Hillary individually before (at another location) I was excited to experience what she had to offer at her new location.  Being at the ranch with other women also seeking clarity for their lives purpose and having Hillary and the horses facilitate the process was incredible.  Hillary provided a safe space in which to explore myself and seek out what it was i needed to heal myself and move myself forward in the right direction.  Hillary has an incredible way of bringing the messages from the herd to your life and to show you what you need.  The ranch is an incredible space that provides time for personal reflection as well as group work.  I would highly recommend this retreat for anyone seeking clarity on their lives purpose.  It was a truly magical and healing experience. Thank you Hillary for creating such a beautiful place to hold space for people to come and heal themselves.
