Join us August 18-22 in Buena Vista, Colorado for this inspired working vacation, and actionable learning experience. If you feel led here, don’t wait. This is the kind of vacation you can justify.

This inspired working vacation was designed for hard-working entrepreneurs, innovators, makers, and small business owners who need dedicated time without interruption to focus on their business’s marketing goals, while also carving out essential time for wellness, rest and adventure. Here you’ll focus on YOU. You’ll reconnect with your business, disconnect from the rest, and you’ll leave The River Gathering feeling accomplished, full, and ready to successfully take on the rest of your year.

We designed the curriculum for The River Gathering to really pack a punch—because we also want to make sure each attendee has ample chill time.


We’ll get things started on Monday morning with Maggie Gentry’s Intuitive Planning workshop, which is all about peeling back the layers of what we think we should be doing in business and creating a plan on our own terms that feels more aligned than ever before.


With this newfound clarity of what you want to be doing, how you do it differently, and why it ultimately matters, you may then bring those questions to Robin & Maggie for Office Hours that afternoon so that we can sit beside you to iron out any of the kinks in your ideal business plan. If you prefer to integrate on your own, or if this left you really inspired and you want to begin creating ASAP—you may do that! This is your time to follow what you need, whether that be a little more work while you’re feeling inspired, an afternoon trail run, or nap time.


On Tuesday morning, Robin & Maggie will help us put all the pieces together as they teach us how to develop tailored content, as well as learn how to execute with a flawless plan and calendar. This is more than just content strategy, we’ll take a look at your entire marketing plan. Talk about expert execution!


Tuesday afternoon is a bit of the same. Robin & Maggie will be available for Office Hours if you’d like to work on some of the tactics we discussed that morning. You are more than welcome to take this time on your own to work, adventure or rest.

After two days of working hard, now it’s time to play! And what we find so important about this day of rest & play is that it’s integral to the integration process. Trust us, these first two days are jam-packed with so much information, and your heart, mind, and body will be grateful for a day to unwind. Getting outside of our comfort zone sparks creative thinking, so you never know—your next greatest idea may be waiting for you here!

The River Gathering will take place at the Surf Hotel in Buena Vista, Colorado,  Sunday, August 18 – Thursday, August 22, 2018.

The River Gathering was created to give women the time they need to focus on their business goals in a beautiful vacation-like setting, while also carving out time for adventure, wellness and rest. Mornings will be spent learning and working to cross off all those important tasks that inevitably get put last behind paying gigs, clients deadlines, and family & friends.

Feeling like your business needs a reset? We’ll cover this. Feeling like you’ve hit a plateau with your business and are craving inspiration and clarity? We’ll cover this. Feeling overwhelmed about what to blog or post about? We’ll cover this. Curious about SEO strategies but think you can’t DIY this. We’ll prove you wrong.

We essentially want to arm you with all the essentials you need to get your business – your baby, your heart & soul – where it needs to be, so you can hit the ground running to finish this year strong by focusing on your clients, and feeling oh-so-good about contracting more.

And while we arm you, we will treat you to yummy dinners, cocktail hours, live music, yoga, meditation, hiking, trail running, siesta’ing and more. This is in fact, your vacation, and a personal business trip in one.

During The River Gathering, we’ll have our morning workshops at the new Surf Hotel, overlooking the Arkansas River, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains. And yes, it’s as dreamy as it sounds. You’ll lay your head at the Surf Chateau, the most charming cottages connected to the Surf Hotel.

At The River Gathering, we not only want to support your business goals, we also want to facilitate friendships and deep conversations because we know that oftentimes the most significant, impactful moments happen in unplanned connecting.  So during The River Gathering, you’ll have a roomie. This can be a roomie you came with or someone you’re just meeting for the first time, who you’ll hopefully have a life-long connection with. This is why we’re excited to pair you up with a roommate for your stay.
