The River Gathering was not only growth for my business due to the amazing workshops, break out sessions, and other badass women entrepreneurs that attended. My self-worth was truly found and everyone should know they are worth it!
The River Gathering was a profound experience for both myself and my business. I would absolutely recommend it to any solopreneur or any woman in a creative industry. Especially those feeling stuck emotionally or in business, feeling lack of connection to the community, or in need of sisterhood and support.
I didn't know what to expect when I signed up for River Gathering, but I followed the calling. Thinking back—magic is the one word I'd use to describe my few days in the mountains of Colorado. I walked away from The River Gathering knowing how to better care for myself, which extends into taking better care of my business (and met some pretty rad new ladies I get to call friends now). This moment to pause was a breath of fresh air I so needed several years into business.
I am so grateful to my past self for overlooking my fear of scarcity and investing in The River Gathering - I didn’t know what I would get out of it, I only felt called to go. These past few days have been wildly, unpredictably, incredibly transformational in ways I don’t know how to express, and the energy and fire I feel leaving this place is more than I could have ever expected or realized I needed.
