Have you ever felt like you're on a hamster wheel, constantly running, but not getting anywhere? It's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day routine of life and business, losing sight of the bigger picture. But what if you could hit pause and take a moment to reflect on the past year and plan for the future? In this Sparked Hot Take episode, Sparked Braintrust mentor, Jadah Sellner, and I explore a powerful practice, built around an annual family retreat that integrates personal and business goals.
Jadah is a multi-time founder and CEO of Jadah Sellner Media and the She Builds Collective, the co-creator of the Simple Green Smoothies social and business phenom, sought-after advisor to entrepreneurs, and bestselling author.
In this episode, Jadah details her annual family retreat and the prompts she uses to create a thoughtful experience that integrates personal and business goals. You'll discover the ground rules for the retreat, including negotiation and decision-making processes. You'll also learn about the exercises and strategic planning involved in identifying priorities and action items. But it's not all work and no play. The retreat also includes rest and restoration, and it's the perfect opportunity to recharge for the year ahead.
Jadah and her family have been practicing this retreat since 2017, and it has transformed their lives. The retreat involves reflection, celebration, and planning for the future, and it's not just for families. Jadah uses this process with pretty much all of her business clients as well, and the revelations and sense of purpose and direction are always powerful.
So, if you're ready to hit pause and take a moment to reflect on the past year and plan for the future, then this episode is for you. You'll learn about the process of dreaming and planning for the next six months, and how to create a "next level vision" for your life and business. And who knows, maybe you'll even be inspired to start your own annual family retreat.
