Uplift & Inspire Mastermind Retreat

You’re invited to join us for the

upLIFT Mastermind Retreat

September 22-25, 2022

Lincolnville, Maine

Every day you work hard behind that computer screen, serving your clients, creating content, and showing up on social media.


You do an annual plan and maybe a quarterly review for your business, but most of the time is spent in your business… doing the work.


Even if you know you should take a break from it all to relax, or step back to do some big picture dreaming… it’s really tough to find that time in your day to day schedule.

And of course, building your online business gets lonely, even when you have plenty of virtual biz besties.


You connect with others on Zoom calls and chat with them over Voxer… and maybe you attend the occasional in person networking event or business conference.


But you still long for something deeper.


More meaningful conversations or just the laughter and relaxation that comes from fun adventures with friends.

I see you friend… you are constantly learning.


You listen to podcasts, read books, and probably attend a conference or two every year.


But most of the time you leave those events with tons of ideas to implement and information to apply… and very little time to process, plan, or pray.

Here’s what I’ve discovered in the 6+ years of building my business online:

The most significant business breakthroughs have come when I am OUT of my normal routine and in a place where I’m inspired and relaxed.


There's something powerful that happens when you stop thinking about your business and instead you allow yourself to enjoy God's creation...


Refreshing your mind and soul is vitally important, yet hard to do in the fullness of your day-to-day responsibilities. Sometimes you have to get into a new environment to find the refreshment you are needing.

And this is what I want for you.

I've also learned that some of my most meaningful business growth moments have come through conversations with other like-minded women.


Whether it's hearing their story or praying for one another or hearing their perspectives and ideas... when you sit face to face, you can gain new inspiration and even create lasting friendships.

What if you could...

Share your ideas and get feedback from biz besties

Relax by the ocean to dream, plan, or pray

Get strategic insight into your business + marketing

Enjoy a fun adventure (or two) with new friends

Be nourished by delicious food prepared with love

Receive prayer and encouragement

Friend, this is what will happen at the Uplift & Inspire Mastermind Retreat.

The fall retreat will be held in a gorgeous location directly on the coast of my home state of Maine… in one of my favorite areas (Camden, Maine)!

The Uplift & Inspire Mastermind Retreat is a special environment where you will feel seen, accepted, and encouraged not only in your business but also in your personal and spiritual walk!

What will you receive at the Uplift & Inspire Mastermind Retreat?

Lodging for 3 nights in a picturesque ocean front town

We'll be retreating at a beautiful home directly on the coast of Maine, including a hot tub, plenty of space both indoors and outdoors, a quaint cabin by the water (with a bed for napping and chairs for reading or relaxing), ocean kayaks, and more. Your retreat ticket will include lodging at either the retreat house or a nearby cabin.

All meals from Thursday evening to Sunday morning

Enjoy nourishing meals prepared by our own private chef for this event, Angela Sackett. You won't have to prep or cook any food from the time you arrive to when you leave. All meals from Thursday dinner to Sunday breakfast will be provided (allergies and food sensitivities will be accommodated).

Time to be refreshed, inspired, and uplifted

At our retreat, there will be healthy balance of business masterminding, relaxation & fun, as well as time to reflect and pray. Imagine a combination of a business conference, slumber party, and women's retreat all in one.

After the upLIFT Retreat, you'll walk away with...

Refreshment for your soul

When you attend the upLIFT retreat with an open heart and mind, God can do powerful things. In our 3 days together, you may experience a breakthrough or shift in your business, personal life, or your spiritual life. Each moment of the retreat will be prayed over and thoughtfully created to provide you with space and time to hear from God.

Inspiration for your business

One of the toughest parts of being an online entrepreneur is the loneliness. We often feel like no one around us really understands what we are doing. And sometimes, building our business can be discouraging. When you step away from your business for a few days and immerse yourself in the beautiful surroundings of our retreat, you're sure to find new inspiration and hope for the future.

Uplifting relationships that lead to referrals and collaborations

The most effective tool we have in building our businesses is our relationships. And it is possible to build those relationships online. But you can build relationships so much faster when you spend 3 days with others--hearing their stories, sharing ideas, and just kicking back and having fun. After our last retreat, referrals were exchanged, attendees received speaking opportunities, podcast guesting took place, and more!

What Retreat Attendees Have Said

Being at the retreat has been life giving to me. I truly think the retreat and being a part of Uplift has changed the trajectory of my business… how I can help others in my biz but also in the confidence to show up and serve in my life as well.

- Wren Robbins, Podcast Strategist & Coach

What a dream event! Love your commitment to connection and community. So glad I’m a part of it!

- Karen Laos, Karen Laos Consulting

More words from attendees...


"Everything was perfect. The sessions and free time were timed right. Can't wait to do this again."


"I loved that it had a theme and training with a direction."


"I loved the organic conversations that happened in between activities. For example, got a wealth of information from Eva in the backseat of the convertible on the way to dinner. Expanded my business in the hot tub…"

Friend, if you have ever felt lonely, discouraged, or lacking direction in your online business journey as a Christian woman… this retreat is for you!

When you come I know you will walk away not only feeling excited and refreshed in your business, but you will also feel validated…

Where will we be staying?

Ocean Front Home

Some of us will be staying in the ocean front home where the retreat will be taking place. This home has 3 levels, a huge kitchen and dining area (with ocean views), a large deck with hot tub, spacious lawn, quaint cabin with a bed and chairs for napping or reading, plus direct access to the ocean!

Solo or shared rooms available.

Quiet Cabin

Additional retreat attendees will be lodging right up the road at some quiet cabins that include a kitchen, living area, screened in porch, and 2-3 bedrooms. In these cabins you'll be surrounded by the Maine woods and have plenty of space for exploring. Solo or shared rooms available. (Shared room would mean a shared bed in these cabins - perfect for friends!).

Space is Limited

This is not a conference. It's a small group mastermind retreat.

In order to provide an intimate and transformative event, I have intentionally kept the spots limited to no more than 18 attendees. This means you won't feel like a number in a crowd; you'll get to connect with each person who attends, as well as myself. If you're ready to be inspired and uplifted, save your spot today.

What Retreat Attendees Have Said

Thank you, Esther! This was such a special weekend. We were encouraged to embrace how God is gifted and prepared us for this time and place!

- Angie Likens, Proclaim Truth

I am still so in awe of our time together and the opportunity to see you all in person and hug your necks and gain your wisdom. The breakthroughs that the Lord gave me and all of us - so amazing.

- Erin Harrigan, Hustle with Heart Coach

Thoughts about our retreat meals:


"I would have never guessed gluten-free could be so good! Angela did an amazing job!!"


"I felt satisfied after every meal and did not have the need to snack. I loved the healthy options."


"Angela was amazing!"


"It was great! I enjoyed how healthy it was and I appreciated that there were not too many sugar options."

Frequently Asked Questions

Image

When should I arrive and leave?

Ideally you should plan to arrive in the Bangor area on Thursday, Sept. 22nd before 3pm Eastern. You can plan to leave on Sunday, Sept. 25th after 11am Eastern. However, there is the option for a bonus day which would have you leaving on Monday, Sept. 26th. If you would like to explore more of Maine, an earlier arrival date or later departure date is encouraged.

Image

What about transportation?

If you fly into the Bangor, Maine airport on Thursday and depart on Sunday or Monday (within specified timeframes), your transportation to and from the airport will be provided. If you need to fly into the Portland, Maine airport, you will need to arrange your own transportation to Lincolnville. If you prefer to rent a vehicle, you are more than welcome to do so. However, all transportation during the event will be provided.

Image

What is the weather like in Maine in September?

September in Maine is one of my favorite months! The weather averages around 70 degrees during the day, but can get cooler at night–typically around 50 degrees. You might be in a t-shirt in the daytime but want to bundle up a bit in the evenings. Additionally, we do have some rain on occasion so a raincoat is not a bad idea.

Image

What is the dress code for this event?

There is no formal dress code–be as comfortable as you like! Most of us will probably be in jeans or leggings and comfortable tops. Also, if you enjoy outdoor activities, you may want to bring something for hiking or exploring. I recommend comfortable footwear as well! More details will be provided related to clothing as the event grows closer.

Image

What does my ticket price cover?

3 days of masterminding & coaching including all materials needed for this time. All meals, snacks, and drinks from Thursday dinner to Sunday breakfast. Transportation to and from the Bangor International Airport on Thursday and Sunday (or Monday if staying for bonus day).

Image

Is there anything the ticket price does not cover?

Your transportation to and from Bangor, Maine as well as spending cash during the time you are here. In addition, if you stay for the bonus day, meals will be your responsibility (after Sunday breakfast).

Image

What is your sickness policy?

Attending a group event has inherent risks, and I assume that if you attend this event you understand there is a risk of sickness, including Covid-19. If someone is positive for Covid-19 at the time of the retreat, I would ask that they refrain from attending the event.

Image

Can I get a refund if I cannot come?

Unfortunately, due to the limited nature of this event, tickets are final sale and no refunds will be issued. If an emergency arises and you are unable to attend (or you test positive for Covid), please contact support@estherlittlefield.com.

Get away from your day-to-day responsibilities.

Enjoy refreshment for your soul and fresh vision for your business...

all within an uplifting and inspiring atmosphere.
