Advice on filling your retreats without spending your life glued to your computer
The advice you receive about filling your retreats often involves tweeting, or Facebooking, or doing some other activity that requires you to spend countless hours each week staring at a screen. The problem is that sitting at a computer all the time absorbed in the virtual world isn’t in alignment with the traditional yogic lifestyle, but most will tell you it’s required to succeed in business.
What I am doing now is connecting with others who already have a large following of ideal potential clients online, and talking to them about collaboration. These people are often respected leaders in the world of yoga or health who have a lot to offer, but lack some of the unique skills that I can bring, or may see my venue in Nicaragua as an ideal place to come to with a group. By combining our efforts and offering a retreat together, they end up having an amazing event to share with their audience, and I don’t need to spend years building my following from scratch.
