Would you like to combine a week skiing in the Sierras with a strategic planning retreat?

November 2nd, 2009

I have a house at South Lake Tahoe at the foot of the Heavenly Ski Resort and there is room for just 5 people (bunk style) to join me for a week of work and fun.  The work part will be the development of your business plan for 2010.  This will be the serious part of the week and we’ll work on that as a group from 2pm to 7pm, Monday through Friday.  In the mornings we’ll ski or chill any way you like.

I’ll be having 5 retreats of 7 days each (Sunday to Sunday) starting January 3 and thereafter every two weeks until February 14 and one last one on February 21. But there is going to be a special week.   February 7 is Superbowl weekend here in the US – that is a HUGE weekend! I’ll put on a special retreat starting Feb 4 and finishing on Feb 11 if you’re an Ozzie, a Kiwi or a Pom and you’d like to experience this phenomenon at least on TV with a beverage in hand + a roast Turkey Lunch (the Superbowl is one of those items on your list of 100 things to experience before you die).

You will invest $1,695 per person (in your local currency or £1,050 for UK). This will cover your amazingly comfortable accommodation and “inside” meals that I prepare (or probably buy in) and they’ll be phenomenal! You will need to cover your own travel, entertainment, “outside” meals, beverages, lift tickets etc.   You MUST be willing to share your numbers and your soul to ensure the success of the retreat for you and the other people.  This is going to be a serious executive retreat but it’s also going to be a winter vacation that will unquestionably pay for itself. BTW, if you have never skied and you’d like to learn, this is your chance.

My house is in California but on the Nevada side (2 minutes from my house) you’ll find Casinos (e.g. Harrahs and Harveys) which means gambling (if you’re so inclined), good restaurants and great entertainment.

If you’re interested send me an email and let me know what dates work best for you.  I will then send you details of the program and travel suggestions.  The best way to do this is to email me at ric.payne@principa.net.  Please remember, it will be serious work, it will be bunk style (but very, very comfortable) accommodation and most important will be fun which is what life is meant to, and can be.

Please note I can only accommodate 5 people per retreat so if you’re interested start the ball rolling now.  This will  be a great opportunity to have some fun, to extract from me everything I know, to meet people who share the same challenges as you, to play in a winter wonderland and to develop a workable plan for your for for the next 12 months and beyond.

As far as exclusive retreats go, they don’t get any more exclusive than this.  I think it will be fully tax deductible (that’s for you to judge based on your local tax laws) but I know it will be incredibly valuable.

    In a word it will be phenomenal. This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in practice development ideas for 7 whole days and spend some of that time in one of nature’s wonderlands.

    What a terrific concept Ric! I hope many members take up this opportunity to work ‘ON’ rather than ‘IN’
