Last year the onset of Pursuit 31 rocked my world! I STILL cannot believe how fast the community grew and all that God did through it. We were able to put on 4 Sold Out retreats all over the country and meet so many amazing women who are passionate about keeping family first in their businesses. I am continually humbled and blessed to get to be a part of these womens lives.
As much fun as we had last year, traveling every month or so with 2 small kids gets really hard. The night before I left for New Haven I was in a pile of tears on the floor because our 6 year old had a fever and it went against everything in me to leave. With the help of my amazing Mom and a few “you can do it” cheers from her and Isaac I bucked up and went. It was the hardest thing I’ve had to do in business to date, but I know God used it to touch women and help me grow in my trust of Him. After all, He loves my kids more than I do, which is REALLY hard to comprehend.
Anyway….with all of that said, we know we are called to continue the retreats but we knew 2012 called for some much needed changes. This year all of our retreats will only be one day. Last year they went from 10-4 for two days so we were together for 12 hours. This year we will be meeting from 10 am – 10 pm, STILL 12 hours. We did this because we didn’t want to lose out on precious time with you, but this allowed me to not be away from my family for quite as long.
The other big change is we will no longer be doing Stylized shoots as a direct part of the P31 retreat. As much as we LOVE these shoots, planning such huge events in different states proved to have many unforeseen complications in the spirit of simplification we decided to not add that to our plate this year. The good news is that each of our hostesses will be given the opportunity, if they choose, to host an A’la Carte Stylized shoot the day after our retreat! We felt that this was the best of both worlds since our hostesses live and network in the cities and have WAY more connections than we do in their locations. These shoots are in addition to the P31 retreats and will need to be registered for separately.
So now onto the FUN NEWS!!!! Since last spring my inbox has been FLOODED with requests from Texas. So when it came time to plan for 2012 they were at the top of my list! In September I had the chance to meet the Adorable Claire OMalley and instantly fell in love with her! When I found out she was from Houston it confirmed that this needed to be our first stop. So here is is! We will be taking our New P31 Retreat to Houston on April 4th!!!
Claire has jumped all over the chance to coordinate a stylized shoot for the attendees and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Look at this AMAZING Inspiration Board she has come up with for the shoot! I COULD SQUEAL!!!
So there ya have it!!!! THE NEW P31 Retreat is HERE!
