I am still so full of energy and excitement from the retreat last weekend, and can see what an incredibly valuable and transformative experience it was for everyone who was blessed to be a part of it.

This retreat was a game changer for me, it was so much fun and lessons that impact my career surfaced every 5 minutes. Long lasting friends and such a small group that you get one-on-one time with the teachers. So affordable and way better than the large songwriter classes. Do it!
