Retreat Details:

You’ll love this day retreat if you are:

  • a small business owner who needs a break to reflect and hang with like-minded peeps

  • a dreamer who is looking for the courage to jump into your next big thing

  • a person who loves community and connection

  • a person who wants a day of inspiration around being your own boss/and/or becoming your own boss


  • The October retreat is led solely by Meg Witt of the Upspeak Collective and all sessions will be held by her with the possibility of some “guest” contributors throughout the day

  • The January retreat is co-led by Meg Witt of the Upspeak Collective and Katie Kurtz of Soul Connect Movement

  • This is not an overnight retreat

  • Breakfast and lunch are included but not dinner

  • The day will be mostly structured with several group sessions but also some time to relax with a book, take a walk, or go grab a tea

  • This retreat is alcohol-free

  • There may be some hand outs but no “booklets” or binders

  • There is not a designated parking lot, so we recommend public transportation or taking an Uber if you don’t like searching for city parking

  • Yoga/workout not included but you are free to bring running gear if you want to use your free time for a walk or run - there is a shower available for your use as well

Your Hosts:


Host, Meg Witt, is the founder and owner of The Upspeak Collective which is a support system for small business owners located in Cleveland, Ohio. Meg was a yoga teacher for over 8 years, spent many more in countless management roles and has a passion for photography, writing, and teaching, as well as a degree in Organizational Management. She combines these skills and interests to offer boutique services to entrepreneurs who need a team to partner with their vision and make their wildest business dreams come true.


Katie Kurtz is the co-host of January’s retreat. She is a coach, connector + yoga teacher. She is here to guide you in connecting to your soul, finding your truth, and coming alive to the immense power you hold. I am fiercely dedicated to creating space for you to be YOU.  I believe that you belong, I belong - right now - not later or someday, but right now. I choose hugs over handshakes. I don't do weather talk. I sing loud + proud while driving and I most definitely laugh at my own jokes. I believe that each of us has to walk our own journey, but we don’t have to do it alone. I hold space in a way that allows women to create goals that can transform their lives. My special blend of coaching and connection allows you to grow on your own, while simultaneously connecting with other women who get it.
