This project is far more than just a selection of shootouts. 

 

If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I refuse to half-ass anything… in fact, I do most things “double-ass”, if you will. When my mother turned 60, we went to Nashville and sat front row at The Judds. Even Wynona herself made comments about my Judd vibe. I got all of us personalized gift bags and arranged for a custom balloon wall to be set up in our hotel room.

 

WHEN YOU'RE WORKING WITH SOMEONE LIKE ME, WHOSE LOVE LANGUAGE IS GIFTS AND ACTS OF SERVICE, YOU CAN REST ASSURED THAT IT'LL BE BLEEDING INTO EVERY APSECT OF MY LIFE (AND RETREATS!)

What Makes The Joyride Project Special?

THIS IS A SHOOTOUT RETREAT.

Your Pinterest Board Came to Life

Now since I’m the one running these shootouts, you as my attendees are the ones benefitting from my obsession with going ALL OUT. Let’s imagine we’re doing a shootout in a forest.

 

 

 

 I’m talking crystal chandeliers hanging from the trees, enough to make the faeries themselves jealous.

YOU CAN BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR IT WILL LOOK LIKE THE PAGES OF THE MOST EXTRAVAGANT PINTEREST BOARD CAME TO LIFE.

All jokes aside, my attention to detail in creative spaces is something I truly pride myself on being epic at. I leave nothing undone. When you do a shootout with me, it will not only be true to the theme, but brilliantly creative and right on target for trends defining the current creative space.

HERE'S HOW THE MOOD BOARDS FROM 2023 RETREATS TRANSLATED INTO REAL LIFE . . .

Nothing is worse than attending a shootout where the couple, styling, or location is nothing like what was advertised. Not only is that incredibly disappointing but also  . . . a waste of your hard earned money! It's so important that when you're making an investment of this size in your business, that you can trust the one putting it all together (hey, that's me!) Not only will I bring the mood boards to live - but I am a chronic over-deliverer, so you'll most likely get even more than your bargained for.
