Advice on ensuring that students will be safe when traveling to your retreats

Obstacle

I’ve recently added a bunch of new retreat destinations to my offerings, and I needed to make sure that it is safe for my retreat participants to get to the locations. This is especially critical for my business since most of my students are young women who are traveling alone, and many of them have never been outside of the US.

Advice

Before you confirm that you’ll be running a retreat at the new destination, do exactly what you are asking your students to do – get on a plane and travel there by yourself, and make sure that you arrange everything so that you are safe and get to your destination without issues. Then, document the exact process you went through so that you can give your students detailed instructions and prepare them for exactly what will happen between them leaving their house and arriving at the retreat. For example, I realized that I need to have a driver meet my guests at the airport so that there is no risk they will get in a cab with someone who isn’t trustworthy.
