Ideas have no monopoly. That’s the simple truth. We have learned that any ‘brainwave’ we have already exists in some shape or form somewhere on the planet or is most likely brewing in someone else’s mind.

How do we know this? Simply by reading the news or browsing the internet and every now and then seeing some great idea and going, “Hey, I thought of that…four years ago!”

Ideas have a lifespan. Someone once said, “An opportunity of a lifetime must be used in the lifetime of the opportunity”. Basically, you ‘snooze, you loose’.

What differentiates one ‘brainwave’ or idea from another? There are a number of factors including planning, timing, decisiveness, and opportunity among other things.


Time to get serious!

“Do or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda, Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, 1980

Most people can attest to the fact that at one point in time or the other, they have had a creative idea they have sat on but never really invested time towards developing. The resulting effect is typically one of frustration, guilt, and disappointment because we end up pushing energy towards the things that sap away our energy rather than the projects that invigorate us.

Successful Formula One drivers like Lewis Hamilton say that the race is only half won when they achieve pole position during qualifying. If their car has a bad start on race day, their pole advantage counts for nothing. It is time to turn your pole position to a strong race and a quality finish. It’s time to get serious with your goals.

In 2017, we want to work with you to help you maximize your start to the year. If you would like 2017 to be a winner, then this retreat is for you.

The details

Our 2017 Goal Setting Retreat for Creatives is a chance to take time away from your regular environment, early enough in the year to help you start the year with a clear direction. Below we provide some details about the retreat:

  1. Who is this suitable for? This retreat is targeted at entrepreneurs in the creative industry who create content for their audiences and customers. Participants will be starting new businesses or in the process of moving their businesses to the next level.
  2. What is the main benefit of this retreat to me? Through interactive workshops and dedicated personal time, you will leave this retreat with clear goals for your creative business and a clear plan of action to achieve those goals in 2017.
  3. What new information will I learn from this retreat? Apart from a chance to clarify and document your goals, you will learn:
    • How to create authentic content that grabs the attention of your audience.
    • How to effectively collaborate within and outside your industry or area of expertise.
    • Monetization techniques. We have a special guest facilitator, MarocMama who has created a six figure business in one year!
    • Creating a pitch strategy that gets results!
    • How to create an effective social media strategy to support your goals.
    • How to keep your goals on track and stay accountable.
  4. Why Morocco? From experience, we know that one the biggest challenges with goal setting is finding the time and space to set them in the first place! Environment is key to inspiration whether we realise it or not. We’ve therefore chosen a location where art, history, culture and nature interplay to generate inspiration. We have chosen a location that will remove you from distractions, help you think through your goals and leave you feeling refreshed and motivated.
  5. Who else is coming? This retreat is only open to a small group of creatives (10 to 12 participants). Participants can either be solo entrepreneurs or business partners working in the creative industry or on a creative project. We feel it is important to have a niche audience who are able to create synergy and promote networking among participants.
