Business doesn't have to be so hard
You are a busy female entrepreneur who has worked hard for the past few years building your business in the hope that things would settle down and you can enjoy life but..... 

Your mind never seems to stop spinning
There's never enough time to get everything done
You wish that the world would stop spinning so fast
Self-care is a luxury that you don't have time for
You started your business for freedom and fun, but you  don't seem to have much of either
Business and life often feels like a struggle
You feel so damn tired sometimes

Imagine if life could be different.  Imagine waking up in the morning full of energy and vitality knowing that today you had the freedom to do whatever you wanted and that your business was no longer a burden to you. Imagine if all of the business stress that you currently experience has melted away to nothing.  It is all possible, let me show you how......

I am Angela Counsel, a Lifestyle and Mindset Coach and Author of the Amazon #1 Secret Mums Business - Create the Business and Lifestyle of Your Dreams

I know what it is like to run a business and to work so hard that you fall out of love with what you are doing.  To feel so tired that you can't find the solutions you are looking for.  

I know this because I have been you, I have also worked with hundreds of women just like you.
Running a business can be hard work, but I have also learnt that it is possible to run a business without all of the stress.  I would love to secret to doing this with you.

Cathy P. Organisor
Working with Angela is an investment in yourself.  I found that it gave me permission to focus on me. I haven't done that for a long time.  Thank you Angela for your guidance, support and wisdom.
Sandra W
Airline Attendant
Before I saw Angela my mind and body were in complete disarray. Thanks to your fantastic ability to change negative to positive it has enabled me to literally view life differently.
Tiarne S
This has been the best experience of my life, it was tough at time but Angela helped me through it and overall it has made me a better person.
Kerstin Lindsay, Naturopath
Thank you Angela for helping me grow into a more confident practitioner. You have opened my eyes of who, what where when in terms of my marketing. I have learnt a lot- thank you!
Kacey Grieves Naturopath
Staying focused, on track and achieving takes training just like for sports goals. Working with Angela was like reigniting the fire that having a coach creates. Angela is not only a wealth of knowledge but she has a great ability to push when needed and support when needed and this is a mix that comes so naturally and is very valuable to me succeeding.
Paula Burgess, Beyond the Maze
Angela has been fantastic in the coaching she has offered me. She been very helpful with the advice she has provided me with growing my business and the fields that I would be able to move into. With Angela's experience and guidance I have been able to think of ideas for my business that I hadn't thought of before. Her coaching has definitely given me a clearer picture of where i am going with my business.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many women will there be at The Entrepreneur’s Retreat?
We’re expecting about 14 women to attend – the perfect number. It’s a large enough group that you’ll meet some wonderful new people, but small enough that you’ll receive plenty of 1:1 guidance from me.

Will my accommodation and food be included?
You will have to book and pay for your accommodation direct with Billabong Retreat Centre.  I have booked The Lodge for the participants of the Entrepreneur's Retreat.  To book your accommodation click here and tell them that you are part of Angela Counsel's retreat from Nov 16-18th.  All of your food will be included.

Will my dietary requirements be catered for?
Absolutely! Billabong Retreat Centre offers a organic, wholefood, homestyle, plant based menu. Meals are buffet style so you will have lots of choice. Most dietary requirements (except for meat) can be catered for.  Just be sure to let us know in response to your registration email and we will take care of everything for you.

Will I be sharing a room?
You have the option of shared or sole occupancy rooms, this is booked directly with Billabong Retreat.  If you wish to share a room and you don't have someone to share with, please let us know so that we can match you up with someone.   Billabong will not match people who wish to share, this must be done prior to your booking.

Is this event for women only?
Yes it is, this is a retreat for women to get away and get unstuck in their life and business.  Also no children are allowed at Billabong Retreat Centre.

How do I get to the venue?
The easiest way is by car.  Billabong Retreat Centre is located about 45mins from the centre of Sydney (not far from Windsor, Dural).  For other methods of getting to the centre click here.  Transfers can be organised from the local train station, speak to Billabong to arrange this.

How is this program different to other business programs?
The Entrepreneur's Retreat is unique in that it focusses on your as the Business Owner rather than teaching you different business strategies.  You will not be learning the latest facebook tips or how to market your business but there will be a wealth of knowledge available to you should you require it.
Treating you as your business's greatest asset means that when you are feeling great your business will be great as well.  We link your business and marketing plans to your self-care plan to create the business and lifestyle of your dreams.
The process that will be followed during the retreat will be loosely based on the 7 step formula written about in Secret Mums Business. By taking some time out of your business it is hoped that you will find clarity on any areas where you are currently stuck.  

What if I can’t attend the Retreat after I have booked?
Tickets for The Entrepreneur’s Retreat are non-refundable, however if you’re unable to come, you can transfer your ticket to someone else who you think would benefit from some timeout.

Please see Billabong Retreat’s cancellation terms to enquire about a refund for your booked accommodation.
