The Retreat

Life is full of distractions and online entrepreneurship is even more distracting. It's easy to get caught up in scrolling through life, following all the shiny objects, and giving in to the overwhelm of trying to balance work and friends and family and all the other hats you wear in a day, putting all obligations before yourself except yourself.


The Speaker's retreat is for the entrepreneur who is ready to take to the stage with the story that's been burning inside of them. You know you have a story worth telling and sharing. You know that story will impact and empower others to make positive changes in their own lives. You know no one will be able to tell your story the way it really needs to be told. 

You just need to know how to get started and how to get it done. 

Depending on where you are in business, you have a choice of writing retreats to satisfy your desire of creating a positive impact on the world through your own knowledge and experience. These retreats, Book by Christmas, The Speaker's Retreat, and Brand Story Impact, are for you to fellowship, get vulnerable, and evolve from the space of your (un)comfort zone into one of growth on advanced levels (goals). Both events promise elevation, expansion, and evolution as a person and as an author to each attendee. 

During the 4 days and 3 nights, the Speaker's retreat will provide you with:

  • tools and lessons with guided writing practices to get started 

  • the ability to silence the chatter and the hustle of everyday life to focus on telling the best version of your story

  • space to get your book done with like-minded people who are driven and in pursuit of the same goal

  • the camaraderie with people who will not only hold you accountable but will also provide the shoulders and support to help you along

  • opportunities to bounce ideas off of one another

  • workshops to share your work and receive feedback

  • peace and motivation to get your story out in the least amount of time with the least amount of distractions

  • catered meals daily

  • a one-on-one private consultation as a follow up with Master Brand Story Coach, Shaneequa Cannon

  • a rinse and repeat structure that will let you write speech after speech

  • an opportunity to share your speech and have it recorded in front of retreat participants

  • a digital video copy of your speech for your speaker reel will be sent to you afterward.

The Location

On an island off the coast of Georgia, the riverfront property has much to offer aspiring authors. Vast lands to explore. A river that flows, creating the sounds of spirituality. Ample room and space to connect for support and guidance then to regroup and process the day's activities, allowing your pen to flow. 

The Accommodations

Once a former plantation, this large estate will be used as the starting point for rewriting the history of your life and penning the beginning of the rest of your life in the present. Weave your own spell of magic over your future as you face your fears, doubts, and stumbling blocks and emerge stronger, more confident, and clearer on your stories' potential and possibilities.

After we dive deep into our individual and collective stories, pulling out the nuggets of our messages, decompress and process as you stroll the grounds, sit around the fire pit, or take in the sound of water rushing by the riverbank. Or partake in comfortable conversation amongst newfound friends in one of the many common rooms on site.

The majority of the sleep spaces are shared. However, all guests will have their own bed. There are a limited number of single-occupancy bedrooms available for reservation. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided but guests can choose to venture over to Savannah, just 20 minutes away, to immerse themselves in the local nightlife.
