The Beech Retreat

This week my husband and I are packing our bags and heading south.  Once we arrive we’ll be with over 100 bloggers at the Beech Retreat at Captiva Island, FL. We are looking forward to a long weekend together in the sun, on the beach. We really need some time together as we prepare to pack up our home and move our family to Northern Ireland in the fall.  While I’m sitting in sessions I think you could find Kevin sitting on the beach doing absolutely nothing – he needs and deserves this break!!

All of this is possible because of some wonderful clients & sponsors!  Thanks to amazing opportunities and great sponsors we are headed to The South Seas Resort in Florida to enjoy a weekend of hands-on learning with some very talented bloggers and social media pros.

What is the Beech Retreat?

“Have you ever wanted the ability to hit the pause button in the craziness of the everyday? BEECH is the answer. BEECH is a creative, hands-on learning retreat dedicated to empowering bloggers to sharpen their skills, renew their vision, and broaden their influence.”  – From the Beech Retreat website

Sessions will cover:

  • Social media
  • Design
  • Photography
  • Blogging
  • SEO
  • Time management
  • Leadership
  • Plus More!

Here is just a taste of the speakers:

 

I’m thankful for Triple1070, one of my sponsors. Triple1070 is a new biblical personal finance curriculum for home school. I’m thrilled to be working with them.  A good personal finance program is hard to find and for homeschoolers many parents just aren’t sure where to start. Triple1070 is a great fit for high school students and helps them learn personal finance basics and also helps to prepare them to handle their finances when they head off to college.  You can stop over to Triple1070’s Facebook page and you’ll be notified when their website is live.

Over the next few months I’ll be sharing my struggles with personal finances and why I think Triple1070 can help young adults avoid many of the common money mistakes that I made .  I sure wish it was around when I was in high school!!

Will you be at Beech??  Even if you’re at home you can follow along. I’ll be tweeting and instagramming my time at Beech. You can follow me at @hey_donna on Twitter and HeyDonna on instagram (instagram is set to private so be sure to request to follow me!
