Discover why La Riva is the perfect venue for a retreat

Imagine being immersed in a beautiful environment with everything taken care of for you, whilst you take much needed time out. Uninterrupted time away from the pressures of work and home to focus on what matters to you.
Stepping out of your business, to work on your business.

Next month (21st to 23rd November) Nicky and I are thrilled to be hosting the B2 Business Retreat which is designed to provide pampering and luxury for both you and your business.

Recently I caught up with Andrea Brown from La Riva, the beautiful 5-star Luxurious Mediterranean style Homestead on 7 acres of gardens nestled in Eagle Point, to talk about why it’s the perfect location for our retreat.

Check out the short video (2 mins 20 seconds) and pay particular attention to 20 seconds in where you will see exactly what all the fuss is about and why we can’t wait for you to join us!

You’ve invested in so many courses (and maybe completed some…#oooops).
You’ve tried so many different methodologies and frameworks from the experts.


Nothing seems to be working.
You’re in and out of overwhelm and feeling kinda stuck.
You just can’t stop comparing yourself to others and their success.
And to be honest, some days you’re pretty deflated and wondering why you went into business in the first place.

Seriously you thought the growing pains were over when you finally got the business off the ground and now it’s a bit like starting all over again.

We get it.

Your business has stages, phases and cycles (just like us women). 

Off the shelf cookie cutter designs that are a generic fit (just like a one-size-fits all dress or muumuu) are not the answer.   

You need to find services and solutions that are tailored and bespoke to your unique business needs. This entails taking a look at things like your specific market, history, client segment, opportunity, product and services, team.

Ask yourself these 3 important questions before investing in your next ‘big thing’:  

    • Can I talk about my specific problem in this environment (with enough time to delve deep)?  
    • What experience do they have working within my industry, ‘who are you to tell me what to do?’  
    • Consider the ROI (emotional or financial) you’ll get from the investment – see more on this where I share insights on the 3 reasons to get someone else to look at your business strategy

How to make sure your next VA hire is better than your last

Already had your first hire and it didn’t work out? Perhaps you relate to one of these scenarios:

  • You dipped your toes in the world of VAs only to have a bad experience
  • You’re not convinced hiring another VA is going to help you so you keep doing the work yourself and can’t keep up with everything
  • Feeling like it’s all too hard and you aren’t cut out to be a leader

Don’t allow a bad choice to influence your whole business growth strategy! This risks you staying stuck in your busy-ness and drowning under all the moving parts that need to be managed as a solo operator. It also means you might tar all VAs with the same brush and miss out on working with someone amazing.

3 reasons to get someone else to look at your business strategy

This week, I share with you 3 reasons why it is really valuable to get someone external to your business to look at your business strategy:
  • They will be able to identify the blind spots that you currently have in your business.
  • If you don’t know what you could be doing, you are missing out on opportunities.
  • You could be accelerating your results quicker if you are working with external experts, or having someone look at your business strategy for you.


In the video, I will also run through how to identify when is the right time to get that perspective.

It really is a must watch – as much as we would like to think, we can’t do everything on our own.



5 questions to ask yourself before bringing on another team member

Have you ever found yourself worrying about:

  • ​​​Hiring the wrong person for the role and waste everyone’s time?
  • The person you hire will take too long to get up to speed?
  • Given the time it will take to train a new hire, it would be easier to just do it yourself!
  • They will become disengaged and bored and you losing money on a wasted resource?
