Rita and Jaye talk to Karen Kalis!

Rita Foley and Jaye Smith sat down to talk to Karen Kalis about Reboot Your Life on her popular webinar. Here’s what Karen had to say after meeting with them:

“Jaye Smith and Rita Foley left me feeling completely energized after their interview.  According to these ladies, entrepreneurship is really for everyone!  Jaye and Rita talked with me about how more members of the Baby Boomer generation are taking advantage of starting their own business.  The one key ingredient to being successful?  Passion.  Along with a healthy dose of tenacity, communication skills, planning and belief in what you have to offer, passion will drive your business forward like nothing else.”-Karen Kalis

Santa Fe Retreat 2015 – Creating a Tribe

“The weather was beautiful, the setting stunning and conducive to sharing, and the food – fabulous!” 

Santa Fe 2015 4…so said the seven attendees at the Santa Fe Reboot Your Life Retreat who met last month, and who have since dubbed themselves The Reboot Tribe.  In an amazingly quick fashion, these retreat attendees bonded and began giving each other excellent insights and advice, starting on the very first night.

“Having the retreats in your homes and personally cooking for us the gourmet meals made us feel so nourished.”  

And that is what we hoped to accomplish.  These retreats are about creating an environment where attendees can focus on themselves…giving themselves the “gift of time” in a trusted and nourishing atmosphere, so that they can make break-throughs in how they want to “reinvent themselves” in their next chapters.  We had budding comedians, book writers, counselors, artists, corporate and nonprofit board members, teachers, and volunteers come out of this retreat.

Santa Fe 2015 3“The retreat has helped me to find my path forward, and given me the tools and follow-up to keep me accountable to those goals I established.  An amazing group of people I am so grateful to have entered my life.”  

Santa Fe 2015 1The Reboot Tribe already has a conference call set later this month to catch up and stay connected. This is what we Reboot Partners love to see and it feeds our souls to play a small part in making it happen.

We have one more retreat this year – October 16-18 in the beautiful Berkshires – right as the leaves are turning their most brilliant autumn colors.  It will be the perfect place to begin planning your own vibrant transition.  Join us.

Sag Harbor Retreat 2015 – Shaking Out the Sand

“I have clarity for my near future. I’m so inspired! The practical aspects of what we learned are so valuable, and I feel much more grounded.”

“I now know what I want to focus on while also being open to possibilities.”

“Thank you for helping me sort through the noise in my head.”

~ Sag Harbor 2015 Retreat Participants

Sag Harbor Retreat 2015 Pic 14As I shook the sand from my sneakers upon returning home from the Reboot Your Life Retreat in Sag Harbor, NY, I reflected on the weekend. The sand was from our beach walk during which participants envisioned their next chapters. We do a walking meditation at every Retreat, and it is always a formative moment. I thought of the sand shaking from my shoes as both a reminder of the splendid weekend and as a metaphor for removing some of the grains of logistical minutia filling our heads every day, often blocking clarity. The vision meditation/walk and the whole weekend were a time for participants to clear their heads of the everyday details and concerns and to focus on themselves and their bigger picture.

Sag Harbor Retreat 2015 Pic 9The weather treated us well, with early May bright blue skies. The beautiful, tall trees around Jaye’s house and lovely deck surrounded us with such beauty and inspiration. The meals were healthy and filling, as well as a great time for the group to bond.

The real bonding took place, as it always does in our Retreats, during the discussions. Everyone was so open, and a calm permeated this group. People were there to figure out how to move forward on their individual paths and to take in the information, advice, and warmth that was shared. The diversity of age, gender and ethnicity only enriched the experience and learning for all.

Sag Harbor Retreat 2015 Pic 13We facilitators did our job, based on seven years of these Retreats, research, and our books. And it was easy and enjoyable for us. The secret ingredient was the chemistry of the participants and the support and encouragement they offered each other. They also liked the one-on-one coaching. There was quiet excitement all around as people reached clarity and sketched their individual plans to move forward, saying they couldn’t have done it alone.

Join us next time for your own journey! We have two more Retreats in 2015: August 21-23 in Santa Fe, NM and October 16-18 in the Berkshires.
