If you, like me, are craving connection...

The Work-Life-Magic Retreat is for YOU

What's the focus?

Personal and business growth. This retreat is for entrepreneurial minds that want to have access to a global network, advance in their careers and pursue financial freedom while building real, healthy and strong relationships with the other participants. Competition happens at the bottom. In this retreat, we’re lifting each other up.

This retreat is also a unique opportunity for you to share your expertise and advise others, as well as open up about your own fears and limiting beliefs, allowing others to guide you. 

It’s time to be ✨free✨. Free from anxiety, from prejudice and from the stress of money. This retreat will be your safe space, and the people within it will be your home.

My network brought me over $100,000 in two years.

And friendly reminder, I’m a Romanian girl in my early twenties.

In 2019, I was stuck in a toxic workplace paying me $1000 a month to organize retreats. While the workdays were long and the pay was never enough, I loved my job. I worked so passionately that something magical happened: the retreat attendees – my then clients – became my network.

And I’m happy to say that they are my friends to this day, who helped me see my own potential and the value in the work I was doing. They told me to leave the company, so I did. I was scared, but they were right. Because fast forward to today, I own my own marketing and media company, worked with over 20 businesses around the US, some of them huge corporations like HarperCollins.  

Slowly, I learned how to play the game: I increased my rates, built connections, leveraged my skills and ended up becoming part of the 0.7% income earners of Romania. Something that would’ve never been possible without my friends’ feedback and support.

My network brought me free trips: fully paid flights, business and leisure trips to Hawaii, Mexico, Tenerife or Bali. All because I knew the right people, and they knew my worth. It also gave me friends in every corner of the world.

But it’s not only about the money.

It also brought me something money can’t buy: friendships that helped me grow. Women I can travel with, be silly with one moment then talk business the other. People that welcomed me to their homes whenever I traveled to their countries. Friends that I could go to when life got hectic, when I needed a shoulder to cry on. 

Having a group that allows you to be fully yourself while motivating you to grow is something extremely rare, special and priceless. And that’s what I want you to have by joining my retreat.

THIS is the power of networking.
These are all examples of what my network has brought me. I'm excited to see what it'll bring YOU.

Come be part of the magic in Lagos.

Magic ✨

My theory is that this aspect of this retreat can’t really be put into words. It’s hard to describe not only the magic happening during the retreat, but the fact that this magic will stay with you long after, and show its colors throughout your life like a little butterfly effect. Yet, I’ll try to explain:

All this, for one forth of the price of normal retreats (but you’ll have to scroll all the way down to see what that is, I’ve been told that’s what the marketing professionals do). This is not only an investment, it’s a steal.

When and where?

October 11-15, 2023
in Lagos, Portugal (closest airport: Faro)

Is this retreat for me?

This retreat is for anyone with an open mind and willing to learn. If you want to work on yourself while creating a safe space for the group to grow, then this is the place for you.

What's the plan?

You are going to participate in career-focused workshops, join wellbeing experiences to help you work through limiting beliefs as well as take part in adventures around the Southern Coast of Portugal.

How do I sign up?

In order to make sure we bring together like-minded people with common goals, this retreat is application-only. The form should take you between 5-10 minutes to complete.

Magic is everywhere, if you know how to look for it.

Lagos: the Hawaii of Europe

With its blue waters, golden sands and cobblestone alleyways, Lagos is one of the best “tropical escapes” while never leaving mainland Europe. Just a 1-2 hour flight away from pretty much anywhere within the EU or a 7-hour flight from the US, Portugal is a gem that deserves just as much recognition as its sister Spain.

Its hillside in the region of the Algarve (through which we’ll be horse riding!) is easily comparable to Hawaii, while its ocean views will remind you of the Maldives. 

With world-famous seafood, vibrant nightlife and incredible weather all year round, the Southernmost region of Portugal is sure to be a place after your own heart, and I’m very excited to show it to you in its glory.

Your Accommodation

Welcome to your home for the week! A beautiful 6-bedroom villa, with ocean views, an infinity pool, a huge green yard and even a Ping-Pong table?! This majestic villa will be where we spend the most of our time, which is why it was really important to me to offer you the best facilities you can find in Southern Portugal.

The rooms will be shared with twin beds and a private bathroom. Don’t worry, you’ll become friends with your roomie in no time and every night will feel like a pajama party.

Yes! You can reserve a double-bed room for yourself, in case you prefer having your own space. This is a limited offer, provided at extra cost on a first-come-first-served basis. You can check its availability on the payment form once you put down your deposit.

Yes! We offer a generous $300 discount for couples or friends willing to sleep in one of the two double-bed rooms.

Please note, in the very unlikely situation that this retreat will not sell out, we might move to a smaller villa – equally gorgeous and with the same amenities!

The Schedule

While workshops and activities might change around – and I also believe a surprise element is really important to any trip – here are a few of the activities included in your itinerary:

A sneak peek of the speakers... 👀

Mayara Castillo from Talk To May

Better known by her 50,000 Instagram followers as May, this badass woman knows everything about building a brand on social media and the power of marketing your products or services through storytelling.

If you have a business in need of a social presence or simply wish to start your content creation journey, May’s workshop is for you.

Madalina Gusa

After studying Neuromarketing at the best universities in China and Italy, Milan-based Graphic Designer Madalina is the perfect coach for building a visual identity for yourself and your brand. Mada will take what she learned while working with huge companies such as Leo Burnett, Spotify, Pixel and Ralph Lauren and will tailor it to YOUR needs, teaching you the process of creative thinking around your target market.

More speakers will be chosen depending on the group needs. I will also personally teach you some of the topics I excel in, such as: the secrets behind digital nomading, finding clients through networking or content creation. 

And if YOU would like to host a workshop (career related? yoga? anything!), make sure to let me know! 💃

Exploring Lagos... In a unique way!

The fun fact about being part of a retreat is that you get to try things that you wouldn’t have otherwise. Like riding a horse through the cliffs of the Algarve or partying on a yacht. Of course, we’ll take time for ourselves in order to explore the city and chill out on the beach.

Getting in touch with ourselves

Lagos is a hub for wellbeing facilitators, and I’m bringing in some of the best in the country.

Daily journaling that helps us set routines and reflect on our journey.

Women’s circles where we discuss and grow from our traumas. 

A cacao ceremony to help you set intentions, accompanied by sound therapy and ecstatic dancing – the kind where you’re free to dance like no one is wacthing!

A shamanic bath with healing properties, that helps us reconnect to our wombs and let go of limiting beliefs. 

The magic in these activities is hard to explain. Truth is, healing happens when you feel safe and empowered by those around you, which is exactly what will happen during our week together.

What's The Investment?

EUR 1185 / USD 1297

You only need to get along with one person, end up traveling to their country and staying at their place for one week and you're already getting all your money back.

Now think what's gonna happen when you get along with all 10 of us.

This is the first retreat I am organizing independently and hence, the price will never be this low again. And trust me, I’m only picking the BEST for you! Gorgeous accommodation, amazing food, insane experiences. This is not a tourist trap tour. I’m not taking you to bazaars so I can get commissions or feeding you rice and beans to cut costs. I sell no bullshit. And if you know me, you know that everything I do, I do with my whole heart.

And while spending 5 days in a luxurious getaway is definitely worth this price, don’t forget that the main element of this retreat can’t be bought with money. Networking is an investment in your business.

Truth is, there’s no competition out there: you’ll never find a retreat that’ll bring you this much value at such an affordable price.

Still not sure? I'll give you a $100 discount.

All you have to do is subscribe to my email list. I’ll send an early bird promo code your way. And nope, I won’t spam you. I barely even have time to answer my own emails.


We encourage anyone, woman, man or non-binary to sign up. We are also welcoming couples and the LGBTQI+ community. Our only request is for you to be willing to learn and grow. You will get in touch with your feminine regardless of gender, you will be encouraged to work through your traumas and you are required to provide a safe space for the other attendees.

Once you submit your application, our team will contact you within the next 24 hours. If accepted, you will need to put down a non-refundable $400 deposit to save your spot.

Perfect! Not too hot, but also not chilly. October weather averages 23°C/74°F during the day and 15°C/59°F during the night. 

The $400 deposit is non-refundable. The remainder amount is refundable up to 60 days before the retreat starting date.

Unfortunately, this is a small business and in order for it to survive, we cannot take the risk of having last-minute dropouts asking for a full refund. We’re hoping for your understanding.

The rooms will be shared with twin beds. We do offer discounts for couples or friends willing to sleep in the same bed as well as a fully private room at an additional cost. These rooms are limited and are sold on a first-come-first-served basis, so please refer to the payment link (sent in your acceptance email) for all your options.

In the very unlikely event that this retreat gets canceled, the whole amount will be refunded to you.

Yes! The first 3 early birds will be offered a $100 discount.

If you bring a friend, each of you will be given a $150 discount.

This is a retreat, not a trip (while I’m planning on organizing epic trips in the future!). This means that most of our time will be spent learning and focusing on “inside work” in our villa. We will have a fun day where we’ll be visiting the surroundings, but I highly recommend coming in early or extending your trip. I myself will go island hopping after the retreat, in case you need a travel buddy!
