A 3-Day Business Retreat in Costa Rica
Our team is here to help you create a brand and business you love.
Business and Branding
Strategy + Implementation
This is a 3 day [4 night] retreat in Costa Rica to help you either:
- Build your brand and business or
- Review and refresh your existing business
Invest in Yourself and Your Business
You deserve to create a business you love.
It’s not so easy to build a sustainable and meaningful business. There are so many options and decisions to make.
This retreat will:
Provide you and your business with a cohesive team of people — working together — to build your business and make your vision come to life. Doing this over the course of a few days, rather than months, can provide you with the kickstart you need to get up and running.
Branding + Photos
We’ll kick off the process with our branding expert who will design your logo + choose custom colors and fonts. You will also have a photo shoot later in the week, after your initial strategy session with Chrissy.
You will meet with Chrissy several times over the 3-day retreat to review and/or set up your business model and what steps need to be taken to create a cohesive business. She will provide you with both training and tools to support your business endeavors. A 1-hour wrap up call, after the retreat and website are complete is also included.
This is a 2 part process. The initial design will be discussed during your business retreat with our team. We will then get to work on building or refreshing your current site based on the results of the strategy and marketing plans made during the retreat. Turnaround time for a completed site is normally a month after the retreat. Also included is copywriting for your website, based on the work we do together.
Marketing System Setup
We’ll develop a marketing strategy for all your communications in the online world. We’ll review your business model and which options you will need to focus on such as social media, blogging, email marketing, podcasting and guest posting.
What you will receive
An inital workbook to complete before arriving
Logo, fonts and colors for your brand
A website (usually completed within 4 weeks after the retreat)
Strategy Sessions with Chrissy and Her Team
Online Communications Strategy
At least one photo shoot
Optional video shoot [for an additional fee]
Plus time to relax and enjoy our tropical paradise!
A Few Happy Notes from Our In-Person and Virtual Clients
I highly recommend Chrissy Gruninger’s company. We found Chrissy to be very professional (every aspect of work we asked her to do was done within the timeline and with quality). She provided us with current, relevant, and important information for our business and was incredibly helpful in identifying the keys to improve our social media presence. Chrissy also linked us to some other people (video, web site design) as well as provided us with some awesome photos of our location which we are using on our site and social media pages. We appreciated the fact that her philosophy was so in line with ours.
I started working with Chrissy at a time where I was trying to build my social media following, launch a website and write copy for a sales page for my first product…to say it was stressful is an understatement! Chrissy helped me to figure out the right social media strategy to get my audience ready for my first offering and also strategically helped me to grow my e-mail list in the process.
She reviewed my sales page and made suggestions that spoke directly to my ideal customer. My first launch was a huge success and I am very thankful to Chrissy for helping me come up with a plan of action and not get caught up in overwhelm.

What's not included?

Who on your team will be there for the retreat?

My team can support you virtually in building or refreshing your business but there are limitations. We can still do all of the branding, copywriting, website and marketing strategy but the photo and video sessions would not be possible. Use the contact form to the right to discuss pricing.

We want to be as focused as possible on your business but understand that you are also visiting a beautiful location and may want to explore a bit on your own.
