STEP OUT OF THE DAILY MINUTIAE…
STEPPING OUT OF YOUR DAILY ROUTINE IS CRUCIAL TO OPEN UP PURE CREATIVITY.
Daily minutiae = planning, marketing, delivering services, hiring a team, selling services, how to sell, finding clients. From the minute you wake up to the minute you shut down for the night you’re worried about how to feed your business and keep moving forward. Most is around sales/delivering what you promised. Johnny Carson plate spinners… entrepreneurs are crazier than just juggling… keeping all 10 plates in the air. Even if you aren’t doing it all, your brain is consumed with doing it all/worrying about it all – EXHAUSTING.
… AND INTO BEAUTIFUL Setúbal
THIS SECLUDED PARADISE BECOMES THE BACKDROP FOR BUSINESS & PERSONAL GROWTH
Set on the north bank of the River Sado, near the mouth of the estuary, Setúbal is a world all its own. You’ll immediately notice the castle set high above the city, giving way to sweeping water views.
Old town gives way to old churches, local restaurants and the aroma of cuisine that wakes every sense within you. A protected nature reserve, energetic dolphins swimming off the coast – a once in a lifetime experience in absolutely every way.
The adventurers-at-heart will not be disappointed. Hike, bike and otherwise explore the medieval architecture and lush forestry around the area. You’ll also find a variety of flora and farming and fishing outlets in juxtaposition to the sandy beaches and teeming lagoons.
Can’t-miss activities & attractions in Setúbal include:
Museu de Arqueologia e Etnografia
Authentic Portuguese Cooking Experiences
Castelo de São Filipe
Reserva Natural do Estuário do Sado
Castelo de Palmela
Parque Natural da Arrábida
Convento da Arrábida
and much more!
HOW AN EXPANSION EXPERIENCE WORKS
First step – letting go and relaxing. Second is being with people who understand you, get what you’re going through. Relaxing into this warm embrace of people who get you because they have all the same challenges you do, too. EVERYBODY GETS IT.
Everyone’s on the same platform, free to be with them uninhibited, laugh & chat and talk about anything – not hiding. Experiencing something new, outside our regular routine.
Something totally new that’s interesting, new flavors smells and sites – and experiencing & learning that all together. Excursions will be guide at museum, port wine /business lessons to learn. Learning something new opens up our brains to possibilities that weren’t there before… in general.
You’ll arrange your flights to arrive in Setúbal on Sunday, October 16, 2022.
We’ll finish up the Expansion Experience on Friday, October 21, 2022:
Over the next 6 days, you’ll experience a blend of entrepreneurial exploration, exquisite meals, business coaching with other highly-curated members, luxurious accommodations,
and time to wander the beautiful city of Setúbal.
EXPANSION BEGINS IN Setúbal, PORTUGAL

MEET YOUR EXPANSION EXPERIENCE HOST
Who am I?
I’ve lived and traveled all over the world.
My birthplace is in France. My first language was Japanese. My first school was in Geneva. Although my parents hail from Brooklyn I didn’t call the U.S. “home” until I was 11.
Moving so much as a kid was rough. What felt like a hardship growing up though, is an incredible blessing as an adult in business.
I learned to connect with people and make friends at the drop of a hat which helps me tap into and really listen to my intuition. It makes it easy to meet people where they are.
Saying hello and goodbye time after time instilled in me how precious intimate relationships are.
I wear many hats: wife, mother, traveler, wine connoisseur, business owner, entrepreneur, strategist, mentor, teacher, speaker, and more.
A little about my experience…
I’ve been a coach for over 30 years and a business owner for 20. Over the years I’ve worked with every type of business, from the Fortune 500 company to the small business owner.
I walk my talk. I hit six figures my first year in business and continued to grow since.
I’ve gone from taking one week to eight weeks of international travel per year without sacrificing the quality of service I deliver to my clients.
I’m making more money while having more time to do what I love. This is what I want for you.
I believe being a successful business owner is 90% being and only 10% doing.
I believe the highest probability of the deepest transformation takes places in an intimate conversation over time.
I believe, at heart, growing a business is all about personal growth. It’s about challenging our assumptions and pushing our boundaries, and seeing what power we have in the world.
I’m irreverent and a bit woo woo, known as airy fairy where I come from.
I like to have fun. If something is going to be a slog, forget about it. I won’t do it.
I am your expansion experience guide and I help deserving entrepreneurs and professionals navigate their next chapter of success by opening the doors of possibility.
