Uninterrupted, focused LOVE for your beautiful business!
Our beautiful homes for the weekend will be at Villa Mangga and Villa Exotica in Ubud, Bali (get directions). These are two beautiful modern villas, across the lane from one another, in walking distance to cafes, shops and other Bali delights, and I'm sure we'll spend ample time lounging around the gorgeous pool and shared living spaces.
There are 6 double bedrooms in total, each with air-conditioning and private bathroom, allowing us plenty of space and privacy. There's also WiFi throughout the whole property (plus TV - if we have time... hahaha!)
Everyone on retreat will have their own bedroom and bathroom. There are plenty of common spaces for our workshops and DOING time as well as breakout spots for some quiet "HDBU" (Head Down, Bum Up) productivity-smashing time too!
You can arrive any time from 2pm on Friday 27th July and we'll be getting started at around 3pm with our Planning Workshop before dinner. We need to check out of the villas by around 10am on Tuesday 31st July so please take this into consideration when you're making your travel arrangements.
Claire will be in Bali for several days before and after the Batch It Crazy Retreat - you'll get her local phone number in the Facebook group to use as needed.
The accommodation is able to arrange a driver for around $35 from Denpasar Airport (email Claire directly to organise if this is what you'd like to do) and it's as least a 1-1.5 hour drive. Please let us know when you expect to arrive (in the FB group) as you may be able to coordinate transfers with each other. If you're arriving in Ubud earlier than July 27th or staying on, please let us know in the FB Group - shared accommodation options may be available.
If you haven't already done so, please let me know your dietary requirements and preferences ASAP - here's the form
When you arrive, there will be a few light snacks and drinks for our planning party and we'll have a semi-working-get-to-know-each-other dinner at the house.
Breakfasts & lunches on Sat, Sun, Mon and Tue (breakfast only) will be MYO (Make your Own)... Everything will be available for you to build your own sandwich, salad, wrap or similar for lunch and breakfast cereals, toast, condiments, fruit, yoghurt, eggs, bacon etc. in the mornings.
There is a fridge and storage space, so please bring any special food and drinks with you. It is up to you to make sure you are hydrated (I'll try and remember too) so please bring your fave water bottle and keep it topped up for regular sipping - fresh filtered water will be available at the villa. We'll have tea and coffee there but if you have a fave, feel free to bring your own!
Don't forget to pack any medication, supplements or emergency items you may need.

* This is a great opportunity to get out and about, explore the area, catch up with local friends, or you may want some quiet time for yourself to assimilate and digest all the incredible work you've done while on retreat. For anyone without plans, we may all go out together and grab a bite - this is a flexible, free-time evening from about 5pm.
There's a lot to pack into these few days so this is a guide only. On the first afternoon we'll get to know each other and get on board with each others' goals and desired outcomes for retreat and then first thing in the morning, we're all about PLANNING so that you can hit the ground running in the first DOING session.
There are 11 mini workshops, where I'll teach and show you some of my fave hacks to help you get the most out of the retreat and apply to your business every single day for greater productivity, focus and progress.
The POM Sessions (Pomodoro - a productivity tool that you're gonna love) are mostly 3 x 25 minute super-focused DOING sessions, and there are 7 of these sessions in total. In these, you can write blogs, create social media posts, record videos or audio, design your distribution workflow, build a course, create an email sequence - whatever is on your plan.
It is also during these sessions that you can book some 1:1 time with moi (Claire) to focus on specific things in your business. The POM Sessions are done in almost silence, so that everyone can focus, distraction-free, to power through and hit some major goals!
During the day, we pack in A LOT... and I dunno about you, but I love a bit of downtime after being 'on' all day. There's plenty of time for quiet and alone time to recharge the batteries. There are loads of beautiful places to get gloriously lost around the place, so you're encouraged to do whatever you need in order to get the most out of this time.
There will be limited time for exploring, but we will close for the day by 5:30pm each day, so you're more than welcome to head out after that (dinners are a mix of in-house and eating out, so you'll just need to organise your own meals if you're not with the group). Likely, we'll find somewhere close by and with a great feel to have dinner together on Saturday and Monday nights - this is a free night though, so no pressure to hang out and you're more than welcome to use this as personal time!
Please ensure that you understand your own passport and visa requirements (if any) and that you have organised adequate travel insurance. Along with the above, your flights, transfers and transportation are your responsibility, solely. Please let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to help out.
Check with your health practitioner if you have any concerns about travelling, vaccinations, preventative action and emergency plans. If you have any life-threatening conditions, please let me (Claire) know as well.
If you are travelling internationally, it's also a good idea to have some options to access your money and also data/sim for mobile phones where necessary. Wifi will be available at the accommodation but phone calls are your responsibility.
In case of emergency while you're away from home, it's really important that I can contact someone. Please email me on email@example.com with at least 1 emergency contact person's details.
Following the retreat, it is my hope and plan that you will have the resources, templates, plans and motivation to continue to create and distribute your beautiful content. You have up to 5 hours' support from my fab VA team to help with your image creation, blog scheduling or any other related process duties (we'll discuss details 1:1). I want to support you to get this content to your audience so we'll have a strong focus on this in the week after retreat. All VA hours must be used within 6 weeks from the retreat or they will be forfeited.
We will also have a group follow-up call on Wednesday 29th August from 12pm AEST (QLD time) for 60-90 minutes (pop that in your cal - the link to join is https://zoom.us/j/136315734) for any follow-up questions and trouble shooting.
If you cancel up to 6 weeks before the retreat start date, you will get a 50% refund of payments already made. Cancellations made within 6 weeks of the start date of the retreat will forfeit 100% of the total price already paid. Please email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as practicable if you think you won't be able to make it to the retreat. All initial payments of up to $500 are non-refundable to hold your place.
