Vaera Journeys came at just the right time for me. I had finally made the transition out of the corporate world to start a writing business after years of planning and dreaming. Needless to say, I felt a little lost and (more than) a little nervous about the change.
But as soon as I started connecting with the other ambitious, talented women on the trip, I discovered a tribe to tap into for insight and support. Exploring Mexico through authentic cultural lunches and day trips to off-the-beaten-path lakes and forts brought us all closer together and catalyzed our creativity. All of a sudden I had new ideas for my business, along with a team of like-minded women to cheer me on along the way.
One of my favorite experiences, though, was the masterminds session. Each woman shared her best practices for running a business. The advice I received was invaluable, and helped me think outside the box about what’s next. All of a sudden I had ways of putting my ideas into action. Who knew you could learn so much in just a few short hours? What I took away from that brief time will continue to inspire me for years to come.
Now, the people I met on the retreat and I continue to stay in touch, share opportunities and plan our reunions. There’s definitely something to be said for the power of travel, womanhood and workshops to stimulate the spirit of entrepreneurship—and Vaera Journeys channels that to its fullest potential.
