Get Sh*t Done Lady Boss Retreat on Canandaigua Lake
September 20-22, 2019 at Canandaigua Lake, New York
We had a vision…
We see you, you are hustling. Working so hard. At home, at work, on your dreams. You need to Get Sh*t Done, but you can’t find that quiet time to dig into and just do it.
You need to run your ideas by someone that “gets it” – a team of like-minded women giving you feedback and cheering you on.
You need encouragement to keep going. You need someone to remind you that you are on the right track and that this hard work and your creative ideas are all paying off.
Our retreat is for those who want to Get Sh*t Done, but also need a space to feel like you are in vacation mode while doing it… because a relaxed mind is a productive mind.
We want to invite you…
to a beautiful, relaxing, and empowering experience to celebrate, motivate, and encourage you to keep being the bad@ss, fearless woman that you are.
Join us. -Julia and Dr. Amy
We cannot wait to celebrate you.

THE COZY LAKE HOUSE
The lake house sits on 10 acres of woods with trails woven in and out. We like to refer to the house as the “Mad Victorian” because of all of the funky wallpaper! Cozy, comfortable, perfect to Get Sh*t Done.
There is a half moon shaped driveway that spans the property…plenty of easy parking.
There is a big kitchen in which our Professional Chef, Eric, will work his culinary magic. Please bring your appetite for healthy and delicious food!
The dining room is where we will dig deep with group discussions.
There is a game room (pool or poker, anyone?) and an exercise room upstairs if you feel like pumping some iron. Bring your yoga mat if you want to try out “dock yoga” (you’ll learn that it’s challenging to balance when surrounded by shimmering lake water!) – a fun vinyasa flow with Dr. Amy.
Upstairs bedrooms and full bath are ready for you to retreat to each evening.
Cross the road to the private lake frontage to relax and soak up the natural beauty. Dip your toes in the water or go for a swim…we hear it’s great for productivity! (And, September lake water is usually still quite warm.)
If you are a business owner, you may be able to deduct some or all of the fee as an education expense. Talk to your accountant. IRS Publication 535 states “You can also deduct the cost of your own education (including certain related travel) related to your trade or business. You must be able to show the education maintains or improves skills required in your trade or business.” It seems that ANY business owner or entrepreneur needs to learn more about social media and marketing to succeed this day in age!
If you are an employee, it is worth asking if you can be reimbursed for some or all of your cost, since it is a work-related event.
