The AmberLife Business Retreat

Strategies in the Sun

Would you like to feel more relaxed and revitalised than you do now?
Imagine, you could be in the sun, feeling free of the stresses and strains of city life.
Relaxing, learning & laughing with a small group of like-minded business owners.
What changes do you want to see happen in your business and lifestyle?

Too often, I see business owners who are brilliant at what they do, but for some reason aren’t playing to their full potential, are being held back by limiting beliefs, or not making the money they deserve.
During our time together I create a safe place for you to let go of whatever is holding you back, so you go back home feeling empowered, refreshed and ready to play bigger to bring your dreams to life.

  • Discover brilliant self-development techniques and exercises that my clients love, helping you to feel more confident, comfortable and content.
  • Say goodbye to your limiting beliefs, give yourself permission to do what you really want to do.
  • You will work on your business, so you can stop feeling guilty about going away for a few days!  I love implementation.  It’s how businesses are built.
  • Importantly you will have the time to unwind, de-stress and allow yourself to be pampered and your senses revitalised.

Hi, I’m Jo James!

The Business Retreat is in the beautiful Algarve in Portugal.  This retreat is especially designed for creative Solopreneurs, small business owners and executives wanting to make changes in their business and to relax, learn and laugh together.

My Mastermind Groups and private clients usually double and treble their revenue, and always talk of having renewed confidence and clarity in WHAT to do next to create their dreams.

During the AmberLife Business Retreat, I will focus on helping you create your mindset for success and identify your next steps for business growth, or a total restructures to transform your business and lifestyle. Join me and other savvy business owners. I’d love to help you manifest your dreams.

I really loved the pace of the retreat, the leisurely mealtimes to the very focused sessions, all set in a stunning location.  I now have a much clearer picture of how I’m going to take MicroBarBox to the next level and have a very detailed set of steps to get there.

As well as focusing on your own business it’s great to hear about everyone else’s business challenges and how they are moving forward, or hearing about lessons learned. It makes the whole retreat seem very much like a team effort and I’m very much looking forward to seeing how their businesses progress as well as pushing forward with my own. I do hope and feel that this is just the start of a rather special group of people that will give each other support for years to come.

I love your seemingly endless supply of energy Jo, and the way everything was organised and in place before we arrived.

An absolute joy to work with, a heady mix of business strategies and fun.

Here’s what I have planned for you

  • Relax and Revitalise with some gentle yoga and amazing de-stressing techniques.  Immediately you will feel calmer and back in control.
  • Design your year ahead, making compelling plans for you and your business.
  • Learn the “Power of 7” – THE time management strategy that my clients say have totally transformed their day, their month, and are finding they even have more time on their hands to do their own things now too.  Remember ‘Me time’?  Get it back.
  • “Talk a Deeper Talk” 
    Learn a deeper form of communication and how we can use language that helps us, not hinders us.  This is more than reading body language which you are probably already are aware of. These are other more subtle ways to deepen rapport, which make all the difference when liaising with prospects, clients and your family.
    One of my clients has seen a profound turn-around, not only with her clients, but with her two teenage daughters.  Using these simple yet powerful changes in her communication, has produced a much calmer environment at home and better relationships all round.
  • Let go of your limiting beliefs, say good-bye to your stress, say hello to the revived, more confident, you.
  • Move forward with your dreams.   We’ll put our heads together and discuss any pressing business issues that you may have.  Finding solutions that suit you and your business, we will transform them into an action plan that you can implement immediately. Or when you get back to the office of course. Your choice!

“Jo has helped me achieve new heights in my business. Before I met Jo I was a wandering creative who was finding it incredibly hard to be motivated and inspired by the art of business. The business coaching I have with her enable me to be focused, organised and goal orientated and be open to opportunities that before I might have missed.

I have certainly increased my sales by 45% three consecutive years now and attribute that success to Jo helping me to plan and see what needed to be achieved instead of aimlessly going from month to month hoping for the best.

Jo is great to work with and she lights up a room with her charismatic bubbly personality and is always upbeat and positive.”

I’d love to help you achieve your business goals and lifestyle you desire.To give you a boost during the four days is wonderful.  To give you the tools to stay motivated when you get back to London, is paramount.  Take with you, and keep, your new found calmness, or the buzz and motivation you feel for your business during the retreat.   Discover how you can change how you feel, in an instant. Get better, more helpful habits, which will stay with you for life.

Business Retreat Portugal by Jo James AmberLife

Kay Daniels, Financial Troubleshooter.

I was going through a major business overhaul and wanted time to get away, focus on the business, talk through some ideas and get clarity on my goals, which is why I booked the retreat.

It was a safe environment in which we could discuss everything, and I loved the ideas, help and support, the breakthrough moments and the laughter.

I’ve certainly got clarity and a plan to put everything into action now.

The food was absolutely fabulous.
The massage and hydrotherapy were a lovely way of starting the retreat
Yoga sessions and walks on the beach were relaxing and were a real energy boost.

Working with Jo James was an uplifting, positive and fun experience.
Facilitated brilliantly, helping us stay on track when we drifted off our path!
