“As an entrepreneur and founder, the Reboot Retreat was invaluable for giving perspective on what is probably the most important and hardest stage of starting a company: when and how to step back and get out of the way so that it can continue to grow.”
“You were disruptors in healthy ways.”
“I got freedom, wisdom and friends from this retreat.”
“More than I ever anticipated, the three of you provided such a superior level of professionalism, safety and comfort. I will be forever grateful.”
Wow, what a great group of attendees for the October retreat held at Cathy Allen’s house in Cape Cod! The diversity in backgrounds and ages made it such a rich experience for us all. The Skills Assessment Exercise went way over time because the advice from the participants to each other was so amazing and insightful. We just sat back and watched! Well, we did do a little more than that, but it was so fulfilling to see people bond and support each other is such a spectacular way. They have organized a reunion for themselves to reconnect next year to stomp grapes and drink wine at one of the attendee’s family vineyard in Willamette Valley, Oregon!
The theme was consistent in answering the question, “what’s next?”…whether it was getting back into the corporate world, taking a long needed sabbatical, reinventing oneself from a medical career, getting onto corporate boards, or deciding now was the time to leave a position.
We dined on the seafood from the region, took walks on the beach to vision the next step, explored the shopping in Chatham, and laughed at the differences in generational approaches to communications and vocabulary. Who knew that “to goose someone” is to motivate them to take action in their lives?
Cape weather was beautiful two of the days, then rain for another, but we didn’t mind. The setting, the company, the food, the thoughtfulness and generosity of those attending, kept us all warm.
We were also able to integrate many of the new exercises and concepts from our new book, Revolutionary Retirement: What’s Next for YOU? into the Retreat. The book just came out this week and is available on www.amazon.com. It will soon be available in bookstores and other outlets. We already have gotten some interesting, and good, reviews from readers. We are planning book parties in several cities this fall and a media push in the next two weeks.
