An inaugural event

"Goals with Soul" Weekend Retreat

our first retreat was held december 2017 in austin, texas

We created a sacred space at the end of 2017 designed to set soul-focused and intentional strategic goals for 2018. We worked together to align our heart, business, and intentions through meditation, workshops, and a guided strategic planning process.

Together, our group of women elevated the conversation around whole life wellness, working lifestyles, and creating social impact. Below are a few highlights of the retreat taken by our friend, Mitch Frink of Mitch Frink Photography. More photos can be found on the gallery page.

Schedule of Events

Panels
& Workshops

here is a sample of what our first retreat included

Your business and brand are the vision of your heart. For years, you’ve dreamt and strategized about impacting your community with passion and fierceness. You've launched that #girlboss effort and found yourself celebrating success – but maybe you’re also feeling overwhelm and burnout. That’s OK – and totally normal. Running a business – and launching a brand -- is not easy. As women we are constantly challenged by finding the flow which speaks to our soul. This is where we come in. PinkCloud Collective is a community event for women just like you to connect, cultivate heart-centered strategy, and set intention together for 2019!

Location

Austin, Texas

we lined up a spectacular modern home in austin, texas for our first retreat...

We lined up a spectacular residence for the retreat and then, the unthinkable call came to Kimber the day before kickoff! Our accommodation had been sprayed by a family of skunks and we had to find another solution! I'm not at all joking! Our urban retreat home was no longer available but the PinkCloud Collective did what we do best and used those savvy entrepreneur skills to work our magic! We found a new location within hours and called it the "Spanish Castle". It was twice the size with no extra cost. That's how we roll!

You can see photos of our (updated) location from the inaugural retreat on the gallery page. All our photos were taken by the ever-so-talented Mitch Frink of Mitch Frink Photography #Girlbosses bonded and collaborated with each other as we set goals with soul for 2018. It was a magical time we can't wait to see you at the next retreat. Details coming soon...

The schedule is posted but I don't see who is leading each session? Do you have a list of panel members, guests, or leaders of this retreat?

Great question! While I've been honing my skills for more than ten years in event planning and strategy, the decision to host this retreat occurred just two weeks ago! Sometimes, the heart calls and you just have to JUMP! My background in consulting, digital marketing, event planning, and strategic planning over the years has equipped me to create this special experience just for you.

It is imperative that each of with the ability to pay our way do so, because by registering, you’ll be helping emerging women in heart-centered business attend this powerful and magical weekend.

Overcoming Obstacles

when nothing is right, but you don't quit

How to keep going when the obstacles are mounting a full-frontal assault is mission-critical to feminine entrepreneurs. Don't worry; it is possible to overcome and #nevergiveup! Our session will give you permission to slow down when needed and step it up when duty calls. We will give you what you need and then set you on a path to knowing your own limits.

Relationships

no one told you it would be this hard!?

When you’re at the helm of your own ship, it’s easy to feel drained of time, energy, and mental space. It can feel isolating and not just for us but for those we love. Sticking with the plan while finding time to address the what's happening around you is hard. We talk, in this session, about our shared experiences and ideas on how to put our oxygen masks on first before helping our loved ones.
