Located an hour outside Nashville, Tennessee, our experience takes place at cozy country inn hidden among a grove of cedar, poplar & hickory trees with a creek running through the center of the property. Amber has been hosting retreats and events at this venue for over 6 years! The staff welcomes us "home" each time and loves hosting our wonderful women-owned businesses.
Limited to less than 18 attendees, Inspired Retreat offers an intimate co-working and personal refreshment experience. You'll have the opportunity to get personalized support from Amber Housley and truly connect with all those in attendance. To enhance the safety of our experience, please read on for our Covid-19 guidelines.

After a delicious Southern-style breakfast, our mornings start off with guided inspiration sessions to kick off the day in an energizing way.
Most of the first half of our days will be keynotes with Amber to help you get started on your action taking pathway, and breakout & implementation sessions
Afternoons are for work or play, you choose based on what you need to take care of you — either more focused work time or refreshment.
At our dining experiences, you can expect locally-sourced and freshly-prepared meals, beautiful details and blooms, alongside a few fun signature cocktails!
Evening sessions are for us to unwind and build connection through hot seat sessions, fireside chats, and game nights.

In the corporate world, I was a marketing strategist and account executive, directing campaigns for influencers like Brene Brown, Ali Edwards, and the ladies at A Beautiful Mess; Las Vegas casinos and resorts; popular consumer goods you’d find in any grocery store, and Cultivate What Matters, the shop that created the ever-popular PowerSheets goal setting planners.
But the corporate world wasn’t where I was supposed to be, long-term.
I’m guessing it’s not where you’re supposed to be, either.
I’ve dabbled in entrepreneurship since I was 4, but I started my first real business in 2007, working in the fringe hours around my job. Over the years I’ve taken my various businesses (things like blogging, graphic design, photography, designing luxury weddings, event planning, coaching and consulting!) to high six figures and seven figures.
All of that to say… I know what works in business and marketing, both online and off, at every revenue level.
Now I’m ready to work on your business.
WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?
Whether you're a product or service-based business owner, brick-and-mortar or online, this retreat program is for you! We have had just about every kind of business represented at our event. From newbies to established businesses, you will find this experience beneficial to your business.
HOW BIG IS THE GROUP?
We intentionally keep our experiences intimate, with less than two dozen attendees and staff. This is not only to help keep within guidelines for safely gathering during COVID19 but also so you can get 1:1 time with Amber Housley and her coaching.
IS MY BUSINESS A GOOD FIT?
I have 15+ years of experience working with and executing marketing strategies for both product and service-based businesses, so I firmly believe the experience in this retreat is applicable to both business types and lengths of experience.
CAN I BRING MY SPOUSE, CHILDREN, OR FAMILY?
We believe that you are deserving of spending 4 days focused completely on you and your business! Because of this (and insurance policy reasons), only participating attendees are allowed on the property during our event. Many attendees do extend their time after the retreat to enjoy Nashville with their loved ones.
WILL I ACTUALLY GET TO SPEAK WITH AMBER?
YES! There are so many masterminds and conferences out there promising expert guidance and input, but then the leader keeps the group at arm’s length. That’s not how the Inspired Retreat works! I am right there with you, answering questions and offering advice.
WHAT IF I HAVE A DIETARY NEED?
Just let us know in advance when registering and we’re happy to accommodate you! Our host venue is able to accommodate most common food allergies or dietary preferences. Our friends with strict gluten-free, dairy, and vegetarian needs have been extremely pleased with how our host venue is able to prepare food with careful thought and care (and still tastes delicious, too!).
DO I HAVE TO STAY ON THE PROPERTY?
Yes, the full experience includes the full accommodations and cannot be removed. We don’t want you to miss out on all the fun we have planned once the sun goes down at night.
WHAT’S THE WEATHER LIKE?
In the Fall, it can be quite warm in mid September—with highs in the 80s—but the humidity will have died down. It’s best to watch the 7-day forecast because it can often change quickly
HOW DO I GET THERE?
After flying into BNA, the main Nashville International Airport, our host location is easily accessible by rental car. Meet up with fellow attendees ahead of time in our private Facebook group to coordinate a rental car with those arriving the same time as you.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE REGISTRATION?
Everything — You simply arrive via your own transportation, and we take care of the rest! Your room, food and drink (including a few adult beverages) and all content and materials, events and experiences. Quite simply, the only thing not included is your airfare, transportation to/from our host location, and if you’d like an additional glass of wine or beer outside our offerings.
WHAT IF I HAVE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS?
This retreat may not be for you if you have physical limitations. Our host venue property is creekside lodge and includes many opportunities for stairs across the property. We want you to feel at home and at ease in our experience and the last thing we want is for you to feel overwhelmed in moving from each session.
I’M BOOKING MY FLIGHT, WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE AND DEPART?
Our program runs from Sunday, September 18 at 4pm CT to Wednesday, September 21 at 10:30am CT. It is about a one hour from the (BNA) Nashville Airport to Evins Mill. When making travel arrangements, it is best to plan to attend the full program so not to miss any of the special planned experiences.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR, PACK, BRING?
We will provide a full packing list and other helpful details for the retreat in March. You'll also schedule a private call with our Retreat Concierge to answer any questions you have and make a plan for what your focus will be during our retreat experience.
THIS IS A LARGE INVESTMENT FOR MY BUSINESS AND I’M CONCERNED ABOUT TAKING THE LEAP.
We firmly believe the content and experience will more than meet—and will exceed—the investment of registration. Be sure and read our testimonials from past attendees who explain how the benefits far exceeded the investment. You should know this is not our first conference or workshop production. We have been planning events from corporate retreats to large- scale productions for over 15 years. You can count on professionalism and a well-managed event experience for yourself as an attendee!
WHAT KIND OF WOMEN WILL ATTEND INSPIRED?
The majority of Inspired attendees in the past have ranged in age from mid 20s to mid 50s. Most are looking to connect with like-minded business women that they can't find at home. That said, we welcome women of all ages and backgrounds! However, you must be 21 years of age or older to attend. We’ve hosted an extremely wide-range of business owners... just a sampling: boutique shop owners, coaches and consultants, graphic and stationery designers, wedding planners, real estate and home interiors, photographers, book authors, clothing designers, interior designers, influencers, web designers, digital product shop owners, wardrobe stylists, calligraphers, online retailers, party suppliers, a wide-range of Etsy shop owners and MORE!
