Lucrative Retreats (Sheri Rosenthal)

  • Episode #9

Wanderlust Entrepreneur CEO Sheri Rosenthal shows you how transformational retreats that change lives can add serious income to your bottom line—if done right—and she highlights the key elements for retreat success.

Sheri Rosenthal is the founder of Wanderlust Entrepreneurs and has taught thousands of facilitators how to design, fill and profit from experiential retreats that allow them to stand out in their niche.

Hosts Linda Claire Puig and Ari Iny explore with Sheri the key elements for retreat success so that you can avoid mistakes and earn the kind of money that makes adding retreats to your business worthwhile. 

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How to add transformational destination retreats to your business—so you can travel the world and have more fun while earning a lot more income
  • Why the “after retreat” experience you create for your attendees is so important—and how to provide one that turns your attendees into lifelong fans
  • The difference between a “live event in a pretty place” and a retreat (the latter makes a much bigger impact on your attendees!)
  • And much more!
“A lot of people look at retreats and think about them as, ‘Oh, I’m just gonna cover my expenses,’ or ‘I’m gonna make a few thousand dollars.’ But there are many people making over a hundred thousand dollars—net, not gross—on their retreats.”
