Focused time to work on what’s important

There is a power that comes from immersion that can’t be replicated in a few stolen hours here and there.

There is a synergy that comes from meeting new, like-minded people and sharing ideas with them.

And there is a sense of pride that comes from dedicating yourself to doing the work.

It’s time to take a large step forward on the work that matters to you.

Introducing: Ease + Momentum Retreats

Three powerful creative and business retreats to choose from

Ease + Momentum Retreats are designed for creatives and non-traditional entrepreneurs to move their creative project or business forward in a very real way that doesn’t cause very real stress.

No Burnout Business Planning

A virtual business retreat

Three days of working on your business, not in your business.

We are all born optimists when it comes to how much we can get done in a day and then end up frustrated and on the road to burnout when we can’t cross out every item on that overly-ambitious to-do list.

The antidote is to look at how you much you are trying to do, evaluate your goals, cut out the noise, and create a realistic plan to propel your business forward.

  • Organizational and productivity hacks to up-level your business in an easeful way
  • Pre-retreat homework and planning guidance so you can fully immerse yourself in the retreat experience

Meet your guide and facilitator, Jen Santos

As a former events manager for one of the world’s largest companies, I have seen firsthand the transformational power of a well-executed virtual or in-person event. I know what insights and breakthroughs can happen and what work can get done in just a few focused days.

  • As a coach and consultant for more than 25 years, I have dedicated my entire career to helping others reach their goals.
  • As a Results Certified Coach, I use high-level coaching skills to help you get powerful results in your life, career, or business.
  • As a work-to-live devotee, I help you achieve results with a daily dose of sossego (Brazilian ease) so you can find joy in the life you’re creating.
  • As a geek, empath, and lifelong learner, I help you understand what makes you tick so you can figure out to make your life better.

I am a US expat now living in perpetually-sunny Salvador, Brazil, with an amazing Brazilian husband, Bira. I get the opportunity to watch and learn, every day, what a work-to-live culture truly looks like. When I’m not working with clients and running retreats, I’m doing everything I can to embrace the rich culture of the area  going to shows, learning about local foods and traditions, and playing music. Outside of pandemic times, you’ll find me playing in a samba-reggae street band on the weekends.
