EP 18: Hosting And Curating Intimate Retreats (ft. Bonnie Bakhtiari)


We have a lot about big conferences on the podcast, but today I want to chat about intimate retreats. If you are somebody who has been attending larger conferences and you're feeling like maybe it's just not the best fit for you, maybe you're craving something a little more hands on and a little more intimate, we're digging into that today! Bonnie Bakhtiari of B is for Bonnie Design is bringing a great perspective to the table because she is the host of the Illume retreat, which is intimate restful retreat for creatives who strive to build businesses that operate from a clear place of purpose.
