FINALLY! The blueprint for creating a retreat that actually sells
AND that teaches you how to avoid all the pitfalls that cause
most coaches, authors, and facilitators to lose money on their retreats.
By working with us you’re getting….
Yup, there are plenty of folks teaching about retreats out there. But ask – how many international retreats have they designed and planned? Just because someone has RUN a few retreats – that does NOT make them an expert!
Through our travel company, Journeys of the Spirit, we have planned and managed over a thousand retreats – and we’ve educated thousands of retreat leaders through our Retreat Blueprint Programs.
We know what it takes to launch a successful and lucrative transformational retreat that’s deeply life-changing. We know the law. We know the problems that can arise on a retreat.
OUR MISSION IS: For you to design, price, market, sell-out, and monetize a retreat that makes you a profit of at least $10K so that you can travel the world (if you want to!), transform lives in a huge way, give back and be of service, and have the income you desire from the expertise that you share. Are you in?
Here’s what you’ll learn…
…in the Plan, Fill & Profit Retreat Blueprint program with me!

In this module we’re going to cover the details of creating an amazing retreat that’s deeply transformational, absolutely unforgettable, and nets you a GREAT profit!
We’ll dive deep into:
- What makes retreats unique as deeply transformational events and how to align your dream location, decide what you’re teaching, and create deeply experiential activities.
- How to stand out from the crowd so your retreat will be different and easily fill with the perfect paying participants.
- How to deal with all the logistics from picking the right location and venue, length of time for your retreat, size of your group, and how to find the perfect help and support for your retreat.
- What must be in place to set yourself up for success – including insurance, legalities, taking money, websites, social media and more!
- Tips on avoiding the worst types of venues, unsafe locations, crazy weather, bad times of the year run a retreat, and locations that are disastrous duds!

In this section we’ll be discovering who your ideal client is, what you are teaching them, and how to ensure that you’re delivering value so they’ll want to register for your retreat!
We’re going to explore:
- Nailing down who you want to work with on your retreats, their pain points, and what problem you solve for them so they know your retreat is for them.

Pricing your retreat correctly is bar none the most important and critical factor in making the kind of money you deserve from your retreat. You can’t afford to miss this module!
My system teaches you:

- How to create scintillating sales copy that inspires & sells!

- How to collect testimonials, reflect on your experience, and improve your retreats year after year.
- …and so much more!
Module Six – Legalities & Business Basics
You can design the greatest event but what about the LEGALITIES? Do you have the proper insurance to protect you? And are you using legal forms that cover you? I hope so!
- Professional Liability Insurance (are you coaching without this? I hope not) & General Liability Insurance (when do you need this?).
- Trip Cancellation + Medical Insurance (you never know what’s going to happen…).
- What is Seller of Travel and how it applies to you (you may be operating illegally without realizing it)
- All the crucial legal forms for your trip (this is worth the entire cost of the program)! We’ll dive into legal forms and tell you the key phrases that need to be in your forms – since waivers are not appropriate.
- How having a corporate business structure, visas and income tax knowledge can help protect you!
- …and so much more!

9 Retreats IN 3 YEARS!
Before taking your Retreat Blueprint Program, I didn’t know how to budget properly and include a profit for myself.
I also didn’t know how to incorporate a powerful website to help market my retreats.
With those amazing tools, I’m running 3 retreats a year and have filled 9 retreats in total! Thank you so much for helping me with my marketing – not to mention all the other amazing support from you, Meghan and the entire team.
Sheri, I’ve got questions….
Q: I want to know why this program is so special!
Simple. This is the most inclusive program for folks who are just starting out planning retreats and who need all the critical basics for creating a retreat while they are still building their business. Sure there are a couple of courses out there that teach how to create and fill a retreat but we don’t even consider them competition. Why? Well most folks who are teaching about retreats have only run a few of them or have done so for only a couple of years.
Would you rather be a newbie learning from another newbie OR – would you rather train with people who have been in the business of retreat management since 2003 (through my travel company, Journeys of the Spirit), and a team of coaches that have been running retreats for around 22 years?
At Wanderlust Entrepreneur, we’ve been training retreat leaders since 2014 and we have seen it all – literally! We’ve seen practically ever kind of retreat you can imagine, as well as every kind of problem you would want to avoid.
So it’s your choice whether you want to buy a cheap program or train from the best. I can promise you that you’ll make up the cost of our program in the money we’ll save you in costly mistakes and missing information from the other programs out there.
Q: I don't plan on creating a retreat for at least year. Can't I wait until then?
Absolutely NOT! To fill a retreat properly and do all your planning I recommend giving yourself a year out to plan for your event. That way you can create a launch strategy that will guarantee that your destination retreat will sell-out. In addition, you will give yourself enough time to work through the course and be able to learn and apply the concepts – plus have the time to do your research without feeling rushed.
You’ll want to make sure that while you are taking the time to create your retreat that you also work on building your list and social media following so that you can fill your retreat with folks that know, like and trust you rather than strangers. After all – these are intimate retreats, not generic workshops!
Q: What if I miss one of the live coaching calls?
Q: Can I access all the modules as soon as I sign up?
To keep you on track, the course modules open weekly until by the sixth week – all are open. We prefer you don’t skip around the program, and once you begin you’ll understand why. If you have extraordinary circumstances that require access to information that is in a later module let us know and we will do our best to work with you on this.
Q: It's just me. Can I plan a retreat all on my own?
Q: Sheri, what if I fall behind?
To make sure this is clear: you have FOREVER ACCESS to the 26 LIVE coaching calls that run all year long, each and every year as well as our amazing Facebook mastermind group coaching. Keep in mind that this is not a course group for folks just to meet each other – it’s where you post your homework and trip pages for us to comment on and help you with. This is one of the most powerful aspects of our course. I don’t know of any online course that offer our level of one-on-one interaction and we’re proud of that.
Also, we’re not going anywhere and you can take your time in learning the material. We’re not looking to stress anyone out here – after all this is about creating relaxing, transformational retreats with our expert guidance!
Q: Am I on my own here? Will you be able to help me with my retreat?
There are 26 LIVE coaching calls running all year-long each and every year where you can get in the “love seat” and we can work one-on-one with you on your retreat ideas! You’ll have FOREVER ACCESS to our expert support in the Facebook private group where you can ask questions and get help and ideas from each other – plus from me and my team. No one is leaving you to fend for yourself here. You also have the option to have private time with me or my team to discuss and plan your retreat if you need it – and that can be arranged at an additional cost.
$38,464 IN 9 MONTHS
I went from living paycheck to paycheck to increasing the price of my coaching packages, starting an online program and charging double what I used to so that I actually made money on my retreat!
As I have shifted my pricing, everything is changing.
I’m calling in a whole new level of clientele and I’m becoming more comfortable accepting that I deserve that much money.
So much good is happening – and there’s more to come. Thank you so much for this incredible program and all your personalized support!
I’m Sheri Rosenthal, and I’ve been a serial entrepreneur and world traveler my entire adult life.
So back in 1999 I was really struggling in my life. I had gone through two divorces and was working hard each stress-filled day as a podiatrist (a foot doctor) and surgical residency program director.
I always loved the idea of having my freedom and being able to travel more than my 3 weeks of vacation time every year. But I had no idea how to make that a reality so I buried my dreams and kept my head down.
Finally, depressed, unhappy, and hating my life and business, I decided to sell my practice and everything I owned – including my boyfriend – at the time. (Well, I really didn’t sell my boyfriend, but I would have liked to if I could.) My family and the medical community were horrified at my decision.
Yet in my heart of hearts I knew I had a greater purpose and was meant for so much more than living a mediocre life. It was a drastic leap of faith – and yes, it was very scary.
During this time, I received the New York Times bestseller The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz. I saw that he had an upcoming retreat to the sacred pyramids of Teotihuacan Mexico during the exact time I normally took my vacation.
I had never been on a retreat in my life – but I took a chance and went anyway despite my doubts. The retreat ended up being a pivotal moment where the trajectory of my entire life changed direction. It was SO much more effective than therapy!
While in Mexico, I met incredible friends from around the world, opened my heart and mind, and experienced a truly magical part of Mexico – all in just 6 days! Plus my point of view, perspective, attitude, direction, level of self-awareness, confidence, self-love all shifted!
Well, my practice finally sold, I moved to California, started studying with don Miguel, and serendipitously began running his retreats, workshops and his overall business.
Now I just want to digress from my story for a moment to point out something extremely critical to you about the power of retreats. I want you to understand that from that one initial retreat don Miguel gained a student for 8 years who attended every workshop, program, and retreat that he created.
Think about that for a second from a business perspective – I easily spent around $75,000 on follow up programs with him over the following 8 years and I would do that again in a skinny minute for the changes it made in my life!
Now multiply that by all the other participants on that retreat who continued to work with him too – and there were around 50 on that trip, so that probably added an additional million dollars or more to his bottom line over the following years! (And we want the same for you!)
Fast forward to 2014… By this time, I had been running my own retreats and helping hundreds of heart-centered facilitators run their amazing retreats since 2003 through the boutique travel agency that I created, Journeys of the Spirit.
I was totally smitten with retreats and the effect they had on the participants – not to mention that YOU as the retreat leader also grow in your own self-confidence in what you share with the world and your ability to stand in your power. Gosh I get so emotional about this.
Then it finally dawned on me that I could help others much more effectively if I created a program to help my retreat leaders end their troubles with filling their retreats AND start making the kind of money they should be making.
And that’s how and why Wanderlust Entrepreneur and the Retreat Blueprint Program were born.
We’ve had participants add tens of thousands of dollars to their income and take their clients on their first retreat to a place they’ve always dreamed of going. And others have doubled the number of people who have attended their retreats.
In our course, we’ll explain how you can avoid the most common mistakes retreat leaders make – and this applies to both newbie retreat leaders and highly experienced ones – and of course ALL the solutions to fixing these. I hope you join us!
You’ll learn our proven strategies to design, promote, sell out, and monetize your transformational retreats so you can:
- Design the destination retreat or journey of your dreams.
- Create the perfect retreat page that sells.
- Have a specific system to price your retreats so you never lose money.
- Create a marketing plan to get your retreats filled + never have to cancel.
- Have the proper legal forms to protect you + your company.
- Understand how to deal with the crazy issues that come up on retreats.
- Monetize your events so that you add 10k, 50k or even 100k extra to your bottom line!
